Advanced Yoga Studies 2: Completed!

I really cannot believe I have completed the second portion of Advanced Yoga Studies at The Mat, with Trina Hall (who is fabulous!). This has been a two month, every Saturday and Sunday, endeavor.  People always look shocked, “you do five hours of yoga?”.  Well, yes, but not 5 hours of poses, or asanas.  Yoga […]

Becoming Yogi

As I blogged earlier, I am taking an Advanced Yoga Class Series.  I have finished Level 1, and am in Level 2.  I have learned a lot:  about myself, about yoga, about life. My “mates”, or class mates, are a remarkable group of people, and we have created within our class, a safe space.  It […]

A Peaceful Moment

I am at the kitchen table with my cup of coffee, all windows open to soak in a beautiful, sunny day, and it occurs to me: I’m alone. Well, my pack of dogs are here, but no other humans. A strange sensation. The wind chimes are tinkling, and every hour I can hear the bells […]

After 50 a new life begins, so Turn It On!

I am part of some wonderful online groups for women over 50, and I can tell you they are all terrific. After 50, we all agree, there is time to be creative, to build a new business, to start a new life! We are finished raising our children, and freedom opens the landscape. These women […]

A New Journey

I have done yoga for a long time. That doesn’t mean I do it well. Yoga has kept me moving through so many physical issues….my back surgery ( I did yoga instead of PT ), joint pain, injuries, MRSA and the misery of trying to move again after 3 months in bed and several skin […]

Home at Last!

On October 30th Randy was finally discharged and came home!  After 3 months, 3 very long,  often traumatic, and dramatic months, it is incredible to see him back in his own home.  However, there were a few bumps on the way, mainly to do with me.  I thought that he would come home only when […]

Evolution

I visited Randy at Zale Lipshy in Dallas tonight, and took him Chipotle, against my better judgment.  After a double lung transplant, one is supposed to be very cautious about what one eats.  I discovered the other day that Randy has contracted e coli…in the lung.  He is on antibiotics, but it worries me that […]

Not the Midlife journey I was expecting….

Hey, who ever gets what they expect?  In my life, the unexpected is most usually the rule.  Right now, the unexpected is beyond comprehension.  3 years ago, my husband, Randy, was “diagnosed” with Sarcoidosis.  He was told it would probably resolve on its own, no treatment necessary.  Even though he continued to get worse, no […]
