I feel so productive! I woke up early (for me), cranked out two pages of my novel, and revised my ustrasana sequence (part of my yoga homework - we had to write a sequence of poses leading up to a backbend. The backbend is called camel pose, or ustrasana).
Tomorrow is going to be super busy. I'm going to the soup kitchen with AT for my "karmic yoga" assignment. AT has warned me that toward the end of the month, the soup kitchen denizens are running low on their welfare checks and there can be fights. I will try to send peaceful vibes to everyone. I am also going to wear old clothes. That seems like a good idea, yes?
Then there will be 5 hours of anatomy class, which is actually one of the toughest subjects we've studied in yoga school. T is used to it because she majored in dance in college, and they actually played around with corpses and labeled them. For me the language stuff (Sanskrit) is much easier. My mind is much more verbal than scientific (except bio, which I like).
Then there will be a kirtan (another thingy I need to go to, to fulfill my requirements), but I am actually looking forward to it. The kirtan will be led by Bhagavan Das, a guy who is apparently 6'3" without his dreads, 6'8" with (that's what I heard, but it's probably an exaggeration). T went to his kirtan last week and says I "will groove on it." ;) For your info, a kirtan is an event where everybody sings in Sanskrit for 2 hours, and some people get up and dance! We'll see what happens. My mentor is also a big Bhagavan Das fan, and says he has gone to BD events with a fever and ended up not able to sit still.
Tonight we might see Capote, in which case I'll fill y'all in.
And thanks for listening to all my blatherings. Your blogs - especially Liz's doggy and whimsical observations, Bdogg's quizzes, and Lisa's book lists - make my day a yummier place ;) And who can forget Frema's new glasses? And Carolyn's children's wall art ;)
P.S. I thought you might all like to know - I bought 2 songs from iTunes last night.
