Every time I sit down here, I try to think of the standout moments in the day, good or bad. But mostly I look for the “Bests.” What were the best moments of this day?
My yoga practice this morning wasn’t “the best”–it was hard and I was frustrated with my limitations and my weakness, but today I practiced to my new playlist, which is a mix of modern and more “typical” yoga music, and I really liked where it took me.
(If you want, I will give it to you, but you’ll have to ask.)
The next to the last cut is a Joni Mitchell song I love called “Shine.” Here’s a YouTube of it. The person did a nice job weaving in lots of vintage pics of Joni with the lyrics.
I really appreciated this song today, because man, I really needed a little light to shine on all those Astavakrasana prep poses that killed me.
“Shine” was a “best.”
My “affliction” (which is how I am referring to this cough/cold/low energy thing that I’ve been battling all week) started lifting today and although I am still congested, the brain fog is finally lifting.
Best, number 2.
The weather is nothing short of crazy-spectacular. I think I should move here. If this was the way winters were all the time, and we got a “spring” like we are having now? And if I could shine a little light on all the gas drilling activity and make it go “poof!” and disappear? I could totally live here.
Weather: Best #3
All my Best People came to Happy Hour Yoga tonight, and what did I do to show them my undying love and appreciation? I lied to them, and then I freaking killed them. They died, then rose like little Phoenixes. It was awe. some. You should have been there.
My Emily got an Ipad today and we Face Timed! Oh my god! I got to see my kid! I got to see her laugh and smile and push back her bangs and everything! She is amazing.
I walked Boomer this evening up Cardiac and as we were passing the football practice field I heard….
Peepers! Spring Peepers! There’s a diversion ditch that runs along the edge of the field and that’s where they were. Peeping their little hearts out.
Holy moly. March 16th. Peepers.
And now it is Friday night and I am nestled on my comfy couch with a glass of red at my elbow, and A Path With Heart beckoning.
One thought on “The Bests”
Thank you, Kathleen for taking the time to post the youtube Joni Mitchell song. I had not heard it before , but it will become regular listening. So many powerful and timely images..and one in particular really touched me…the “hopeful girl in the dreamy dress”..
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
