moving to philly

It's official!  I'm moving to Philly.  I got a better job there and it's closer to my family!  I'm nervous and excited. There's lots to think about right now.

And I don't have my practice to fall back on right now.  I'm taking some time off for "an injury." More to follow on that. Back to the battle with meditation for a little while.

So much abundance! Observe the transitions!

Right now I am particularly blessed with abundance.  Never in my life did I have so much opportunity in front of me, and as a consequence, so many choices to make.  What I thought would be in place by the end of March is still very much up in the air.  Answers should come this week, but in the meantime, I feel like I'm in a holding pattern. 

Then, a major shift happened this week that complicates everything.  Again, I can't talk about it now, but will share more later.

LIMBO!  I think to some teachers' advice to observe the transitions rather than rushing to the next pose.  That's my life practice for the moment.

what do I do on my moon days

On Moon Days (full and new moons) we take rest from our practice.  But I still can't move 100% away from the yoga and find myself surfing the web for videos about it either to figure poses out for myself or to learn more about the lineage and philosophy.  Here's a great video I found today about why we practice and the lineage.
