I must admit there is a rather large part of me that wants to be snowed in with my husband and dogs. As I sit here and type this I am still sweating a little from the rather large and spicy thali I just ate. I have always enjoyed keeping this blog, but right now I have no idea what to share. I am eight practices in and I can feel my strength returning and my mind sharpening. I can tell you that the deep funk I was in I couldn’t remember what I liked to do, and now I can. I am looking forward to returning to my LIFE not that depressed mess that I left. I wonder if anyone wants to know that I am catching my ankles regularly something I swore to David Keil that I would never be able to do. That I am pretty sure I have fulled grasped the importance of breath now that I have been practicing everyday with a major chest cold. I have no idea where this time will take me. I am really thankful that I am on this journey.

    Jill, are you sure you REALLY miss the snow? … we had more than a foot in Pawtucket. On another point, it sounds like you're finding your “place.” As I've learned since opening Shri, some things just have to come … can't be forced. Everyday brings something different. Maybe that's what made the catching so sweet? I've been practicing as much as I possibly can in between work and running the studio … what I would give to have your experience … thank you for sharing …

    love you

    Yes! I don't think I'll be practicing in Mysore anytime soon–best I can do is read about it! (And the food pictures are cool too.)
