I went location scouting for a place to hold my first retreat yesterday and ended up at a cool place in Damascus, Oregon. Scenic location…beautiful sanctuary, dining hall, great vegetarian catering…many many good features. This might be the place. Still looking.
Started a new yoga class last night that was unlike any I’d participated in previously. Really enjoyed it. The theme was focused on gratitude, which we talked a little about as participants, and tried to integrate it into our practice. I have so much to be grateful for in this life, and it seems to just get better and better, as I settle into this heartfelt happiness. All areas of my life have improved over the last year. My friendships/relationships/the family I have here….all so good and better and best. Really. I am so thankful.
The yoga was an hour and a half, and by the end of it, I had begun to feel slightly nauseated. Thankfully, I live nearby, so rushed home and no sooner walked in the door when I got very sick. I investigated why that would have happened after yoga, and it said that sometimes the liver is prompted to release toxins during yoga. I threw up because I was poisoned by these toxins. Today, I feel a little “meepy” (as my old friend, Peggy Spott used to say), but better.
So today was a productive day, work-wise. I fulfilled some interesting writing orders about various subjects….”the dangers of Aspertame”, “coping with loss,” “how drones can be used in the construction industry…” Just enough to earn a few bucks and get my brain charged up.
Anyway….namaste….and until next time…be sweet now.
