2 weeks to Christmas! Even yogis lose their cool around the holiday season… while the malls are filled with bleary eyed people, and entertaining sometimes feels more like obligation than pleasure. Here’s a blog about how we laughed our way through self-imposed pressures around the holiday season. Laughter is a great yogic tool for serenity!
I got my nephews a pre-fab Gingerbread House Kit, hoping to wow them, imagining us bonding as we build the most fantabulous Gingerbread House (ever) together. And yes, there might have been visions of them looking at me with little eyes of amazement, wowed by how “cool” and “artistic” their aunt was… as we step back to survey the house that we built, a creation maybe even better than the picture on the box.
– Love –
Sit with me, Love
You know there is nowhere to go
Softly, sit with me and see
I can travel to the farthest place in the world and I am still looking for me.
Sit with me and laugh in the rain-filled forest upon the tree stump
how it all cut us, fevered and crumpled us, stumbling, souls breaking against the walls.
we shall feel the cold of the rain, the tears washing our cheeks
from our bellies.
Feel the light,
a million pieces
Will you let yourself,
