Road Weary

Road weary...a show today in Mississippi, a long drive home afterwards.  A good show, we love playing the Natchez Trace Festival, but out of state gigs are tough on the body these days.

The dogs are overly glad to see us.  Seems there were storms here last night and they were in the house least they were in the house.  We will make it up to them in hugs, treats and love.

I hope your Saturday has been as much fun as mine, yes it is worth the fatigue and the aching back.
Hot tea, a good read and a comfy bed awaits.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

My Path

This is my daily path.  I find peace and calm and grounding as I walk this road.  Sometimes there is excitement, maybe a snake or spider web in my face, but always it is a walk of beauty and serenity.

This is a quote from Gandhi that I posted on my board today.  Eye opening, I  believe.

" 7 things that will destroy us:
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience
Knowledge without character
Religion without sacrifice
Politics without principle
Science without humanity
Business without ethics"  - Gandhi

Today is April 27, for most of you it is no big deal, for those of us in Alabama it marks the 5 year anniversary of the worst tornado outbreak in our history.  62 of our 67 counties were hit, over 250 people died and those of us who lived here will never be the same.

All around where we live, there are reminders of 4-27-11, places where there once were communities,  trees still twisted, crosses where people died.  And yet time goes on, life continues, regardless of what is stored in our memories.

When we got up this morning I looked out our back door and saw the red and gold streaks of a sunrise, crystal blue skies and a waning moon.  It almost seemed as though the universe read our thoughts and promised us a good weather day today.  I look for signs, I believe in them, I need them.
The sunrise, the blue skies and the moon were gifts that I accepted gladly and with much gratitude this morning.

Back Class

My classes were packed to capacity yesterday, but only a few came today.  Busy schedules and structured days sometimes get in the way of yoga class.  :)

Since I had thrown my back out Saturday, and am still dealing with some issues I did the most logical thing today for class...a class on back pain.  I told my students at the beginning that today the class was for me, but they loved it.  It seems that most of us at some point have dealt with back pain.
Yoga is often recommended for back pain and it works.  Even after teaching three classes yesterday, I felt better last night.  Tonight, my back pain is almost gone.  Yeah!

Another beautiful day, a student asked me today if the weather was always this beautiful in Alabama.
I assured them, that July and August would be unbearable...heat and high humidity, even the nights will be hot and humid.  But today, 80 degrees, blue skies, a gentle breeze ,the world is green and fresh and everything is blooming.  It is picture perfect.

Tomorrow is hump day and my off day and no plans.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Monday Musings

Packed classes today, still a twinge in the back, but getting better every day.
New strings on the guitar, practicing for our gig at The Natchez Trace Festival this Saturday.
Excited, we played there last year, they ask us back!

Another beautiful spring day, still lots of pollen ( cough, sneeze, cough).   Rain moving in later in the week.  Our garden looks great, so do all the fruit trees.

So ready for my cup of hot tea and my warm cozy bed.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Sunday Night Movie

The twinge is still with me...the body can be interesting, can't it?
A busy day, but a beautiful one...and a beautiful night.
We watched The One Hundred Foot Journey tonight.  It melted my heart, delighted my eyes and made we want to visit France and India.  If you have not seen it, the story is poignant, the cinematography is like dessert for the eyes and Helen Mirren is wonderful.  A great way to wind down on Sunday night.

Blessings of joy, abundance and good health for the coming week.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
