I teach yoga in a small town in northern Pennsylvania.
I opened my studio on March 1, 2004. It’s called Main Street Yoga.
The people who come and practice yoga with me are teachers and lawyers and judges and doctors and nurses and farmers and retired vocal teachers and linguists and sometimes I even get a few college students. They are the best people.
I love them.
Because they come and practice yoga with me I get to teach yoga and have friends. And they get to do yoga and have “yoga friends.” It’s a win-win.
Because of them I feel a sense of community in this place, whereas before I opened I felt lonely and had no sense of community and no friends. Now I get hugs everyday. I also give hugs and get to laugh. A lot. Every day. My yoga friends are very funny.
But while I love teaching yoga, my teaching of yoga is undergoing a metamorphosis at the moment. I’m in this strange place now and I hope these people who practice with me now will hang with me while I morph.
The other thing I do is write. I write every day. In a notebook, with a fountain pen. Last year I self-published a little book called The Project-Driven Life. If you follow the link you can buy it on Amazon.
The other thing I aspire to do is write on this blog. I’ve been aspiring to write on this blog for 8 years. I desperately want to change the name of it to “Aspiration Location” but I’m too cheap to buy a new domain and transfer all my files from 8 years. I don’t even know how I would do that, so I’m just going to leave it as is.
If you’re coming here looking for inspiration, sorry. There are plenty of other blogs that will inspire you and you’ve probably already found them.
Today is a chilly day in late October 2017.
I just signed up to do NaNoWriMo for the 5th time.
I’m dusting off this blog because I think I want to chronicle the NaNo process of trying to write 50K words in the space of a month.
Thanks for reading.
(I love you, too. I’m sure if you lived closer to Mansfield, you would practice at my studio and make me laugh and give me hugs. Too bad you live so far. Or I do. )
