It happened again. For the second time in a few short months, I found myself crying in a yoga studio. Unlike that other time, though, I didn’t see the tears coming and I can’t pinpoint exactly what it was that caused me to cry. If I were forced to point the finger of blame, I’d … Continue reading A cry in the dark
Irate so I write
The year has barely begun and already I’m exhausted by the sheer amount of bullshit in our society. Perhaps if it had just been a thing or two, I could have overlooked them and focused my attention instead upon next month’s trip to the desert, but when the outrages and irritations continue to accumulate…well, it’s … Continue reading Irate so I write

I’ve had a few.

It simply doesn’t appeal to me and I’ve been reasonably satisfied practicing at home. The Hot Yoga Spot offers what I think … Continue reading (San Jacinto)Mountain Pose
There’s a moment from my life that I think about quite a bit even though it was years ago. I was alone in my car, driving south on the thruway towards a destination I don’t recall. What I can remember, however, is how I felt at the time - out of breath. This sensation of … Continue reading Breathing. Lessons.
