A quick update because I have a busy day ahead:

Morning practice, medium-sweaty, full Primary, led by Sharath's recording, tight hamstrings, back was tight, couldn't bind in Supta Kurmasana today, skipped the second Urdhva Dhanurasana (but did the first and third), couldn't do Pindasana at all (Karna Pidasana was uncomfortable too), held Uth Pluthi for 6 of Sharath's counts (I figure I'll add a count every day until I can hold for the full hated 15).

My face is breaking out and I don't know why. It's annoying.

I'm going away this weekend, to a cottage, up north, on a private island. It's owned my girlfriend's aunt's family and it's apparently a very beautiful place.

I would have been more excited about this, but to be honest, the plans were uncertain and I was convinced that nothing would come of them. As a result, I didn't feel compelled to mention them here *and* I didn't bother to make any preparations for the trip, including laundry, packing, groceries.


We leave tomorrow, early a.m., in a rental car that I'm driving. So I'd better get busy!

Although I will definitely be practising and I'll even be writing about it, I won't be posting my updates on this blog until Monday night.

Until then, have a great weekend, and enjoy the sunshine, everyone!

I'm off to the country...

You live in the country?
Very well, these woollen stockings are just the thing for shopping
in the village, or walking in the muddy lanes. They are knitted
in a close ribbing stitch and will last for ever and ever.

Well then, have a great time. Soon enough the schedule of the fall will return. Bringing any books?

I'm bringing four:
-Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace (a 1000 page tome I'm reading for an online bookclub)
-How to Make an American Quilt by Whitney Otto
-Anatomy of the Moving Body by Theodore Dimon
-South of Broad by Pat Conroy (my favourite fiction author; his first new fiction in 14 years!)

Also bringing my yoga mat and my guitar! :-)

It was very restful and nice there - definitely worth the pain of the preparations!
