Winter weather leaves me tired and sluggish, and I can choose
to sit on my fanny all day and write or shake it a little…
be very intentional about physical activity.
My problem is I fall in love with the idea of
an exercise or movement regimen and not
executing, ya know?
I have flirted with yoga, but then life gets life-y.
Neglected unloved cottages, for example, cry out for my love.
So I have begun to resume yoga and appreciate
this inspiring book by editor Linda Sparrowe:
(Universe Publishing, 2015).

How I wish I lived nearer to blogger friend Leslie
who became a yoga instructor…she would
perhaps have encouragement for me since I have
more ability to sit still for meditation than flexibility.
Here is a peek at Leslie’s tranquil cottage over the holidays:
…back to yoga:
“Cooking meals for friends, feeding the birds in the morning, or preparing breakfast for rescue cats–all this is seva (service) and part of daily practice.” ~Linda Sparrowe
This gorgeous book delivered much
more than what I was expecting
and was just the gentle nudge I needed
to begin now, right where I am.
I’m already a seasoned meditation girl,
so now I’m looking forward to adding more
embodied spiritual practice to my repertoire.
What are you doing for exercise and well-being these days?
Peace to you right where you are.
