moment of rest and relaxation

It was a great day for me.

I am dealing with a bacterial infection in the bursa of my elbow. So I started taking some antibiotics for that yesterday and while I think they are helping they do make me feel a bit off center. At lunch we went to Darren's chiropractor for an adjustment which was fantastic. We spent the afternoon talking anatomy of the shoulders and then worked some on sarvangasana , sarvangasana to setu bandhasana and a brief glimpse at parsva sarvangasana.

All right then. That is it for now. I am going to watch a movie and let me mind turn off for a little while. More tomorrow.
