There's a Japanese proverb that goes like this: “Fall seven times, stand up eight.”
That's sort of how I feel about my recent efforts to hop up into handstand. This morning's practice was hard to get to, but once I did, it flowed nicely and I had two very good handstands. I literally floated up and straightened my legs without even touching the wall. Victory!
Backbends were yucky (typical for an early practice - I started at 5:30 a.m.). Musical Sirsasana was 'I am aglow' by the inimitable Sarah Harmer (back to CanCon!).
I'm starting to notice that it's getting lighter, earlier in the morning. The sky was blue-lit around Tiriangmuhka Ekapada Pachimottansana this morning. It made me feel like I was 'running late'. I can't believe that Daylight Savings Time kicks in this coming weekend! With our wintery weather, those long bright evenings are going to seem a little strange! It doesn't feel like March at all - it feels like January right now.
Snow, snow and more snow. Winter Storm Warning is still in effect this morning. There's 15 cm of snow on the ground and it's *still* coming down. The storm will blow over around noon, just in time for the next storm to move in.
The snow and bad roads are going to make getting to the *5* classes I'm teaching today such a joy. *eye roll* I'll be leaving early for all classes and bringing a good book (and crossed fingers).
It's going to be a long day.
