4th Sunday in January, 2014

I started an Intro to Yoga class today.  It was a spontaneous act and I’m not quite sure what brought it on.  I have known my way around the Sun Salute for decades, but not much else.  My time with Rodney Yee was mostly spent admiring his flexibility—is he a contortionist or what?— and neither Denise Austin nor Jane Fonda kept my attention.   I haven’t had a real burning desire to practice Yoga, though I do know that I feel like I’ve had a massage after I do some poses.   So it might have been a targeted ad that caught my attention (well-done, Adman), but at some point Friday I signed up for this class at Evansville Yoga Center.  Both teachers and students seem very nice, and the challenges were just-enough—I’m definitely going to be a little sore tomorrow.   The benefits will be phenomenal, though, so I’ve high hopes.

The Center has recently moved from West Franklin to North Main, near Garvin Park.  On the way home, I drove through the park and noticed a gaggle of geese walking on the ice over the lake.  It was a beautiful day with highs in the 50’s feeling tropical compared with what we’ve come to expect this winter.  I just happened to have my camera and stopped to take some pictures.

Down by the fountain, on the west side of the lake, it was like a waterpark.  They were hanging out, yakking and visiting like they were at the beach.  Funny…

It was so nice that I walked a lap around the park.  The sun was going down as I left.   Shortly after I arrived back at the Acres, I grabbed my camera again to catch the beautiful sunset…

I hope your day was as nice as mine.  If it wasn’t, then maybe tomorrow will be.  Be ready!!

Namaste…
