Question 8

do you believe in rock and roll, can music save your mortal soul?

A question Tattoo'd Daisy and I have been asking since 7th grade and revisited (a bit off key) after an evening of indulgent French food and heartfelt conversation.

Had this wonderful conversation with a guy on the metro who was reading a book by an author that the Artist recommended to me over dinner last night.

He told me of something:

A few days ago, I realized the saddest thing I think I have ever come to the realization of. I realized that I'm going to die before I have a chance to read everything I've ever wanted.

With that statement, we exited the train and continued chatting walking to the exit - me mulling over his words.

I realized.

I left my black pumps on the metro.

Quote.02: On Balance

What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing matter.

~ Henri Matisse

On Art. On Yoga.

Art can be anything. Yoga can be anything.
It's the way you look at things - you figure it out on your own. In many respects, there's no right or wrong way.

They are both meditation acts - the rest of the world drops away.
Infatuation occurs with the creative - when you express some Truth. Be it through asana or a line on a page.

It's all about what we observe in our lives.

Yoga is one way to process these observations internally.
Art is the manifestation of of these observations to express to others what is seen.

It's all about what we experience.
How we see the world.

I still find myself cycling through the vinyasas.


These nights that I still find myself being chased by bad dreams.

Yes, they still appear.

I wonder how deeply they are ingrained.

When they will show again.

My hope is that it is something of a purging.

There solace to be found in repetition - solace in incremental growth.

Practice sometimes takes a different form.

But sweetness always follows.

Mid-Atlantic Summer

Nothing like walking out of the office to grab a chai and thinking to yourself: 
Wow, a packed Bikram class would be much more pleasant.

Life Lesson.

When making your juice smoothie for lunch* it's helpful to put the cover back on the top of your VitaMix.

On the flip-side, my kitchen is pretty gosh-darn clean.

* 1/2 cup OJ, 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, 3 carrots, 1" fresh ginger, 1/3 cup spinach, 1 cup ice cubes.

12-15 hours days in trial prep were the norm for February and the start of March. Long hours and lots and lots of meals out. Release achieved by snowboarding on the weekends - dodging yahoos on the local hills, nursing bruised knees, and puzzling out how to elegantly carve rather than zip.

Oddly enough my flexibility generally still seems to be here.
It's overall strength that feels to be greatly lacking.

It would be good to get back. Re-start.
