it has been quite a while since my soles spent time communing with asphalt.

beginner’s mind.

the sky was grey above, the damp asphalt grey below. crows were repelled by my approach and bluejays screeched like clothesline reels. the return of gold finches was heralded with their singing.

the lichens hung, winter weary, from tree limbs. the fields were waiting on sunshine to green their blankets. pussy willows had already pushed from their sleepy sleeves.

beginner’s mind.

the only way that we can live, is if we grow. the only way that we can grow is if we change. the only way that we can change is if we learn. the only way we can learn is if we are exposed. and the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. do it. throw yourself.    ~ C.

yoga is a dance between control and surrender — between pushing and letting go — and when to push and to let go becomes part of the creative process, part of the open-ended exploration of your well-being.       –Joel Kramer

GENTLE YOGA at 10:30a
