My streaks are starting to become hard and wearying. I am struggling with the yoga and I am struggling with what to write each week on the blog. The yoga is hard because of the time commitment and also because a lot of the practices are physically hard to do, and continue to be hard … Continue reading Slow Gardening
Today is the Summer Solstice and I have decided to do a summer Project: 94 day of Yoga. Here is the video I took after completing 108 Suns at the studio this evening.
On July 1st I started writing my book here in short blog posts. This was “Step 1” in the strategy to overcome my resistance to putting my work out there. The plan was to use my blogging streak to chunk out the book. And you know what? I think I’m done. Today when I sat … Continue reading I Think I’m Done

But then last night, I also wanted one glass of wine. One glass of wine. In the evening. Is that so bad? But … Continue reading Getting Tired of This Detox Life
I have no idea what to write tonight. This is my 34th post in a row. I started out on February 18th, Ash Wednesday, with the goal to post every day until Easter, which I believe is April 5th.

Yesterday I completed Day 750 on 750words.com Milestone, I think. No badge for that, but still, the symmetry pleases me. The one thing I am good at is sticking to things. If I commit to it, I do it.
