JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 176 :: throwback

30 Jun

Day 176: Thursday.

Throwing it back to earlier in the week when THIS happened.

One doggie bed.
One blanket.
Two dogs.

It’s like a dog pile. Instead of yoga, it’s Doga.
And now, yoga time for me.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 174 :: reaching the summitt

28 Jun

Day 174: Winning.

“I met her once.”

That’s what’s been in my head all day as I have watched the memorials pour out over the internet and social media for Pat Head Summitt.

She was a pioneer. The winningest coach ever. Intensely successful.

I was a pioneer when I met her. A Smith College Pioneer. Pat was to accept an award on the Smith Campus. I was the student picked to introduce her at the faculty luncheon in the private faculty building overlooking Paradise Pond.

I wasn’t picked because of my game scoring records (I barely had one) or my presence on the college court (more like the bench). I was picked because I was in the right place at the right time. And I intensely loved basketball and women’s sports.

Which was why was I was scared shitless. Of her. THE one and only Pat Summitt. A living legend then, almost twenty years ago. I was also scared of messing up. In front of HER. The living legend who was gracing the Smith College campus.

I practiced and practiced and practiced my speech. I probably worked harder on that speech than any term paper that semester. And on the day of the big introduction of Pat Head Summitt it all went by in a nanosecond. A blur. I didn’t mess up. It went without a hitch. Then I shook her hand. I SHOOK HER HAND!!! And, in an instant, it was over.

It’s an amazing legacy she leaves. One of strength and elegance. Determination and grace. Winningest path paved. Inspiration for a generation of little girls and a lifetime of women’s sports. She has now reached the ultimate summit. But leaves in her absence an incredible presence. And in my mind, an incredible gift.

I met her once.
And in that instance she made me do great.
Even if it was for a nanosecond.

I suppose that’s a practice she would be proud of. Making every nanosecond count. Whether it’s in life, work, school, on the court (or in the yoga studio).

Thank you, Pat.
For your life, your presence, your work, your mission.
Your inspiration.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 173 how to let go of the world

27 Jun

Day 172: Love.

Okay, you got my attention.

And I guess I’m not surprised. It seems to be appropriate in a year of yoga, in thinking of our one-ness, our union, the togetherness of it all, that the Earth might pop up.

This film has been following me around on Twitter…so I watched the trailer. And now have an interesting question in my mind thanks to Josh Fox (GASLAND).

What can Climate Change not destroy?
I’m pretty sure the answer is love. At least that seems to be implied, but, now I need to see the film.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 172 :: the berries are coming

26 Jun

Day 172: Sweet.

The berries are coming! The berries are coming!
The blooms are turning, the fruit is ripening. The blackberries are almost here. And I imagine they are loving the sunshine just as much as I am.

Because I too am red… a little burnt.  But loving every moment in the summer sun.

Red. White and blueberry, blackberry, raspberry. Whatever berry is sweetest.
Yoga done. Weekend over.
Summer is here.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 171 oh, dear

25 Jun

Day 171: Walk this way.

Starbucks has many things. Coffee. Mocha. Music. And tonight, live wildlife.
Walking through the drive through.

It’s amazing what you see while walking. On foot.
Oh, dear.

And now… a little yoga for these two feet that walked a few miles.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 168 :: the yoga of it all 

22 Jun

Day 168: Union.

I’m thinking about yoga tonight. Or uniting, union, one.

Reflecting on what is the yoga of it all.
Where can we unite more. Union more.
Work as one.

Here’s the history of the word use:

Has me wondering…
Are we getting closer to being united?

Questions worth asking.
But answers worth discovering.

Where can we unite?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
