it would be criminal to love asheville any more than i do

many of the reasons why i love this place so much!

as always, my time in ashvegas was magnifique. i spent my time teaching, doing anusara with joe, flow with shala, eating at good vegetarian restaurants, walking around town, studying nutrition with dr. biddle & ayurveda with vishnu dass.

i had the house all to myself last night & it was très bizarre. i went to bed early & loved falling asleep to the sound of the violent thunderstorm outside my window.

some other thoughts for the day:

*people are weird {if you want to laugh watch this}
*this dude's work is so inspiring. . . it makes me crazy. . . & proud to live in a world with such talented photographers {how did he get that job btw?}

*i think andrew bird & i would get along quite well because we both love to sing about snacks.

*reading a farewell to arms. . . maybe i've heard too many taylor swift songs in my lifetime {embarrassed, yes. . . m & s, remember beach trip no. 4?}. . . but. . . hemingway, my friend, that is no love story.

*i have sooooo much yoga homework due before the next weekend it is ridiculous! this time, it is serious. if i don't get it all in in time, i don't graduate. everyone in the class is panicked.

*just darling

* two favorite countries of the week- austria & thailand {just because}. . . i've always wished thailand was spelled thighland instead

*abby, count me in for no pants april {remind you though, i do yoga a lot & i don't shave often}

*"nothing of me is original. i am the combined effort of everybody i have ever known."

* everything happens for a reason. . .

*i don't know where i'm going or what i'm doing with my life, but i'm excited. i am ready for change.
today wasn't great, but i'm alive and i have so much to be thankful for.

a series

"the possibility of a pause between the creation of a thought pattern for any particular action and the execution of that action is the physical basis for awareness. this pause makes it possible to examine what is happening within us at the moment when the intention to act is formed as well as when it is carried out. the possibility of delaying action- prolonging the period between the intention and its execution- enables man to know himself."

-moishe feldenkrais, awareness through movement

nothing new or entirely special {urdhva danurasana/ wheel} again. it has become a favorite.

this morning was a truly beautiful rewarding because:

- i got up with the sun

- did sun salutes { not quite 108 like the rest of the world. . .}

-meditated on the dock {i loved just sitting a taking in my surroundings- listening to all the birds/little creatures/the quietness of morning}

-i brought my mat with me this time

-continuous self-timer on my camera

-starting the first day of spring the best way i know how!
