It was so sweet to sleep in this morning, especially after the 10 mile run yesterday.
I stayed in my pjs for most of the morning, catching up on blog reading and exploring the Itunes store looking for new yoga music. I’ve been getting deathly sick of the stuff on my Ipod, and I found a new album by Masood Ali Khan called Yoga Sessions and bought it. Made a few new playlists–maybe not for classes, but who knows? New music inspires me.
Tonight I went to Brenna’s Yin class at 5:30 and it was a crowded and a lovely class, and so quiet on Main St! We did savasana with no music, and there was virtually no noise from outside. During the week, it has been so incredibly loud on the street that I spend a lot of time adjusting the volume on the sound system, trying to mask the roar of trucks.
The gas well drilling “play” has completely changed the decible level on Main Street in Mansfield. It used to be about a “3” on a scale of 1 to 10 (with “1” being quiet and “10” requiring ear plugs), and now it’s about a “7” all day long, from early in the morning till just before sunset.
I must confess, I’m finding it very hard to fall in love with this new reality.
But today was so slow and soft and quiet, during my savasana meditation I was able to pretend that I didn’t live on the Marcellus Shale.
