Well, neither Anne or I (or is it me or Anne... hmm... I never know and this is why I have an editor for lasting written works... anyway) decided to have children. But today is an exciting day because last night Anne got a puppy. So today, Auntie Christina and Uncle Kelly get to go meet the nephew puppy for the first time. The greyhound cousins will stay home because an 8-week old golden retriever might easily be mistaken for a bunny and that would not be a good thing for so many reasons.
We decided to combine our puppy visit with a bike ride around Town Lake and a day enjoying Austin and then with a meal with Anne and Jeff and their furry family. So after my tea settles and I finish up here I will do some asana and then we will clean up and head into town. Yesterday we spent the afternoon at McKinney Falls State Park hiking around. It was pretty fun except the water was low and the trail map sucked so we wandered around a lot more than I enjoyed. (I like to find a trail and stay on it so that I feel like I actually did something. Wandering around, well, it just aggravates me. I am sure this is not surprising to anyone. In fact I am the same way about my asana practice. I always like to have a plan. It never settles me the same way if I just "do whatever I feel like" compared to when I make a plan and then work through my sequence. It is probably some pitta thing.)
Okay, well a few promotional things while I have your attention- I know that everyone here knows that John Friend is in town this weekend but please come to his talk on Friday night at the Sri Atmananda School. There will be a kirtan with Dave Stringer also and it really will be a great night. You can sign up for this through www.anusara.com.
Also I have a few registrations for Carlos Pomeda's visit here but at this point, it is going to be a very small gathering. If you are planning to come and you have not told me, please tell me so that I can soothe my anxiety that I will not be covering his minimum fees out of my own pocket. It will be a great chance to work with him, to hang out together and to learn about the Bhagavad Gita from an expert. Really, please come. And while it is highly encouraged for people to attend the whole thing, if you need an exception made because of family, teaching, etc. just let me know.
