It’s Getting Dark

Oh, Dear Reader, I have made a grievous mistake. Today is Valentine's Day, and I should be happy, but alas and alack, I am not and it is all for this: I've anthropomorphized a robot. The Mars rover Opportunity is probably something you've heard of, but don't know a whole lot about. I know I… Continue reading It’s Getting Dark

Dear Spider On The Ceiling Of My Kitchen

I know I am about a million times bigger than you (do your multiple eyes allow you to comprehend our size difference?), I produce loud obnoxious noises (do you even have ears?), and I appear to have the powers of a goddess by turning on and off the sun (okay, that one's real), but I… Continue reading Dear Spider On The Ceiling Of My Kitchen

Thoughts While Watching 2001’s The Fast And The Furious

For reasons unknown, Husband got it into his head that we, as a couple, need to subject ourselves to the entirety of the Fast and Furious movie franchise. Because I love him, I have agreed to devote 15 hours and 57 minutes of my life watching ethnically ambiguous men beat one another up furiously between… Continue reading Thoughts While Watching 2001’s The Fast And The Furious

30 Days of Yoga

Liberate

Today's session was self lead and full of crying because I don't fucking know why, but day 30 always is a tear fest. It's certainly got something to do with succeeding and knowing you've been on this journey with thousands of other people all over the world and somehow feeling them through the ether, and… Continue reading Liberate

Celebrate

I really wanted to write this sort of uplifting post today about being a cheerleader for someone else. I wanted to say something like "celebrate someone in your life today, someone you wouldn't normally." Because there are a lot of people out there who are jealous and snippy and want to tear everyone else down,… Continue reading Celebrate

Dedicate

A subtitle for today's blog could be "Planning for Brainstorm February," but I gotta stay on this month's brand, and dedicate actually works out. I dedicated today's practice, as Adriene asked us to, to "my work." It was meant to be a person or a thing that wasn't ourselves to prove how self love and… Continue reading Dedicate

Power

Today, I have the power to stay on task. I mean, I had the power to stay in those standing splits the whole time and do shiva squats, so I could probably conquer the galaxy if I put my mind and brawn to it today. But we'll save becoming Supreme Leader of the Universe for… Continue reading Power

Drop

Anger is addictive. Next to food, it's my drug of choice, and it's at the top of the list of things I'd like to drop. The problem is, it feels good to be mad, doesn't it? Of course, no, not really. Being in a foul mood, yelling, finding irritation in everything--these aren't pleasant experiences. But… Continue reading Drop

Alive

It's crazy how much more flexible I am at the end of the day as opposed to the beginning. I like starting my day with yoga after a hot shower (I don't function without showering first thing in the morning, this is a result of being very greasy, very hairy, and very sweaty at night).… Continue reading Alive

Balance

I LOVE BALANCING POSES. They make me feel like someone who is graceful and elegant and all the things I'm not. Today, I successfully did not place either foot back on the ground until the video prompted me because I am a goddamned crane/dancer/tree. We're moving into the last week of Dedicate which means I'll… Continue reading Balance
