Present: Now, after a year or so hiatus, the blog is up and running again (with a new and improved name and image). My new(ish) shtick is more focused around my re-found love of all things yoga; philosophy, asana, meditation, and yogic humor (because everything is better when laughter is involved. Ok. Not everything.).
Me (past, present, and future): I began journaling in junior high (well before the term “middle school” existed) when my English instructor highly suggested that I journal because I talked too much. I never stopped (talking too much or writing). I can often be found toting around a tattered little book to capture thoughts, dreams, frustrations, and haiku. I love to dance even though I have little to no rhythm, enjoy cycling around town on a cruiser bike, and I attend as many yoga classes as I can fit into my schedule. I have been practicing yoga for over 15 years, and despite my lack of social grace or physical athleticism, asana practice feels good to me. I like to think that my yoga practice has made me a more kind and compassionate person, but more than anything, it has allowed me to find more of an ease with who I’ve been all along. I have a day job at a non-profit hospice agency and when I’m not working for the money, I’m teaching yoga and studying movement therapy. I live with my cynical, witty, and down to earth partner in a 500 square foot condo in Seattle. I aspire to one day find enlightenment, but only if it allows for a sense of humor, an occasional snarky comment, and a flexible menu.
