Tree to Tree
Friday, March 22, 2019      24 comments

I've got a great third-floor place for my balance exercises -- a relatively narrow hall dormer leading to the third floor deck. Where if I lose my balance I can briefly touch the wall on either side. Even better, I'm looking into forest -... Read more
Recess Walk
Thursday, March 21, 2019      20 comments

Yesterday I had a long day rising early to head into the big city -- and had to miss my morning work out + stretch routine. The commuter train is not full of happy, fit-looking people. And I am so grateful that I no longer have to make th... Read more

Stronger in the Broken Places?
Wednesday, March 13, 2019      23 comments

OK then. Nothing is broken. But: I have broken my left foot. Twice. Once as a child, once in August 2017. And as I work on my tree pose, I can't help but notice. The left foot is stronger and more stable than the right foot. ... Read more
Such an aspirational blog
Tuesday, March 12, 2019      19 comments

Yesterday's blog certainly was aspirational (spelled with just one "s" actually). And of course that should have prepared me for an exceptionally tough day. Too much going on in too many different areas of my life simultaneously. Challe... Read more
The Purpose of Life: what are we looking for?
Monday, March 11, 2019      26 comments

Oh, my: that's a heavy-duty title. And the February 13, 2019 3PGC (Three Principles Global Community) webinar, with Dr. Linda Pettit and Natasha Swerdoff, is quite long. https://www.youtube.com/

People HTS
Sunday, March 10, 2019      25 comments

I don't typically read People magazine except maybe in the dentist's or the doctor's waiting room. But the one edition I do buy pretty much every year is HTS: Half Their Size. Even at a ridiculous $16.99 Canadian!! Year after year, it jus... Read more

It's Clicking
Friday, March 08, 2019      27 comments

The exercise routine (4 sets of 10 full push ups, 10 full sit ups, 10 hiking planks, 10 squats) is clicking. And the yoga stretch routine afterwards. And what's not clicking nearly as much? My right hip joint. My right knee joi... Read more
High Waisted Pants
Thursday, March 07, 2019      31 comments

It's just about exactly 18 years ago that I bought a pair of black suede high-waisted boot cut pants. On sale, natch. I'd just lost the weight down from 240ish and these were a size 10 with (of course) no stretch. Waist much narrower ... Read more

Spring Songs
