Remember the Karma Pod? Well, it's been three months since I turned it in to the main police station. For all of my dramatic efforts with phoning Apple and trying to locate the owner, no one has claimed it. I phoned last week and the officer in charge cleared me to pick it up. The Property Centre is clear out in the west end of the city. After a long subway ride and a long bus ride, I located the squat, unremarkable little building where dodgy property goes to languish.
I now own a second iPod! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but for now, I've cleaned it up and I'm using it. It's in mint condition - very few scratches because there was a sticky vinyl cover on it. All of my music doesn't fit on my white iPod, so I loaded the additional music (mostly jazz, classical music, soundtracks and latin stuff) onto the black iPod.
Since I have the space, I also loaded some podcasts. I've been listening to - and enjoying - the Visions of Cody podcasts. If you haven't heard any of these, you should give them a listen. They have some very funny moments. I've been listening to them on my daily walks and I'm sure the other people in the park must think I'm a crazy lady, given the way I've been cackling to myself.
Great practice this morning. I pulled out the Beryl DVD again and practised for an hour and a half. I'm mulling over the idea of practising with the DVD a few times every week, when I'm not pressed for time. Ironically, I seem to focus more deeply on breath when I'm using the DVD (yet, in my teacher's class, I really struggled with focus...). I also tend to rush through the down dogs and some of the standing poses. It's good for me to follow someone else's idea of 'five breaths' for a change.
