it’s really hard for me to start anything new. i’m only assuming it’s hard for everyone, right? and it’s not like meditation is a completely new thing to me ~ i’ve been reading about it for years, talking about it, doing it from time to time, and there was a short period of my life, while living in new york, that it literally sustained me. … Continue reading meditation for lent ~ or, a piazza in my mind.
today is an important day. it’s the first day after a very unhealthy weekend. it’s crucial to start the turn-around, no matter how terrible it feels. and i’ve already failed with the gym because my car won’t start. i could walk to the gym but it’s 5 degrees. no thanks! i’ll be making a little hot yoga happen right here in my house in a … Continue reading detox.
