My Yoga Practice

I've been practicing at home, in between and around the rest of my life. I don't have a special hour set aside where I have complete peace. Instead I practice while I am making tea, or while Suzanne searches for an image of the great Apache Chief Cochise of the Chiricahua on the internet. I watch the clouds go by out the window. At the moment the clouds are pink and purple and headed south in poofs. I'm all energized from a few basic yoga asanas, some downward dog variations and basic sun salutations. It's amazing how tingly I feel. I felt a few muscles begin to burn when I tried the more challenging variations, and wondered...will I be sore? I seem to make my hamstrings sore almost continuously. My hamstrings shorten when left to their own devices, and need continuous encouragement to grow longer.

Overview: Healthcare Ed

So much has been happening lately that I can't even come close to keeping up with my journal. This weekend I'm attending a conference at NCNM on "Transforming the Mind" and the presentations today were fascinating. I think the most interesting one for me was this wild mathematician guy who has decided to represent aspects of dynamic living systems in three dimensional moving lines as drawn by his computer. But I don't want to write about this too much now. There will be more of this conference, and I'll have more insight after I finish the whole thing.
