To Look Up Today

Or google “so to say” as this lovely Russian lady tells me when she is not sure if her choice of words apply:

Are feelings of grief stored in the Quadricepts? All the asanas the require engagement in that area while stretching the front of the body, make me cry like my boyfriend left me, and my pet (if I had one) died on the same day. What are those feelings I stored in there? Surely they don’t all fit in there?

What focus group, or how was it decided, that the color of smoked salmon looks good on a vehicle?

Is it powerful intuition or is it being judgmental, to strongly believe that someone hurt Sandra Bland so horribly badly in that jail that she could not handle it, or that someone felt they had to kill her so she would not tell?

Why white people think that by them not being racist, black people can stop feeling thousands of days of stored anger and humiliation and distrust like a turning off a light switch.

How can David Brooks sound so smart one day and sound like a fucking idiot the next?

Will I ever stop planning what bottle I want to open or order Friday nights? Will Pratyahara EVER kick in??

  1. I have knee issues that make my quadricepts vulnerable and difficult to use in yoga practice let alone strengthen. I have big issues with camel pose. I used to think it was because as you go back, you must also open the heart area and that felt scary. Now I see it is more about my knees and thighs. I love back bending – my upper body. But below the navel I get a bit freaked out. My friend who is an acupuncturist once told me that quadricepts are connected to the small intestine meridian. Sounded weird to me, still does, but I also have some intestinal issues😳 Just sharing 😃

    • Thanks for sharing Sarah. On the days that I sample poses from intermediate, a good cry and a long nap seem to follow. Then the next morning going up or down the stairs is a problem! Sometimes the why is not the best question,

  2. I agree ☺️ I think as long as something is happening, I try for more awareness rather than questioning ☺️ Enjoy your day👍
