JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 209 must love yoga

4 Aug

Day 209: love.

I’m procrastinating.
I should do yoga.
I almost did yoga, then I did laundry. And vacuumed. And worked.
Now, it’s getting late.
And I have to do yoga.

Ah… it’s good thing I love yoga.

Because it’s hard to do something every single day if you don’t have some sparkle of passion for it. And even when you do, there are days when you don’t want to.

So…now, I must go.
And do some yoga.
(love)

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 208 newness

3 Aug

Day 208: newbies.

I’m starting to feel like I need to rev up this yoga promise of mine. And then I realize I’m beating myself up for not doing more. And then I realize that that is SO. NOT. very yoga of me.

And then, I pat myself on the back for trying something new.

Here’s to another day of yoga.
And trying something new.
Even if it’s small….it’s something.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

Day 206: yoga.

Tonight just one thought as it’s LATE (but the Red Sox won):
Does doing the wave inside a baseball stadium count as yoga?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 205 :: vintage

31 Jul

Day 205: priceless.

Life is pretty special when you get to spend it with those you love. And birthdays are even more special when you get to spend them with those you love too.

Today we celebrated Jaynane and Colin, two birthdays in one week but a lifetime in the making. Before I do my yoga, as I sit atop an air mattress writing this post surrounded by a house full of sleeping kids, adults, and adults who act like kids (or is it the other way around?) I’m reflecting on what it takes to be a vintage classic.

Vintage is old, sure, but it’s so much more than that.
Vintage is aged but wise.
Vintage is better with age, really. Aged to perfection you might say.
Vintage is priceless, powerful and precious.
It’s pretty darn good. Precisely.
And one might say, that’s pretty fabulous.

We think Jaynane is fabulous too, and at 70 and every year, month, week and day leading up to this moment in time, she proves that life can get more beautiful and bountiful with age.

She is so vintage.
Aged to perfection, and it only gets better from here.
Because the celebration continues tomorrow…

Here’s to tomorrow.
A vintage classic in the making.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 204 :: water and sun

30 Jul

Day 204: Good Recipe.

It’s hard to beat the combination of water and sun.
Okay, maybe add in a boat….

But still..
Still waters… Sun… Saturday.
It’s summer recipe for happiness.

I wish now that I had done my yoga in the sun near the water today. So…why didn’t I do that? I don’t know. It’s a good question. I have my home practice down but my public park practice is still a bit, well, awkward….embarrassing…too public?

And that reminds me of this:
Tension is always an opportunity for expansion.
Must. Remember. That.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 202 :: mothers and daughters

28 Jul

Day 202: Birthday Part Deux.

I’m thinking about mothers and daughters tonight. It’s been all over the news and the internet is abuzz. A woman is nominated by a major political party for a presidential race for the first time in our country. It’s a watershed moment. One that will be reviewed in the history books for generations to come.

And yet, as a daughter, the mother I’m thinking about is my own.
Today would have been Mama Sling’s birthday, if she were here.

It’s always a watershed moment in my life, remembering my mother on the day she was born. Her July birthday being in the middle of summer, but the sunshine she shone was throughout the entire year and her entire life. Much of that light she shone on me, always telling me that I could do anything. There were no limits. And it all seemed possible with her love.

So, here’s to all the mothers. The ones that show us the way. The ones that remain with us even when they are gone. And the ones that teach us that we can do, or be, anything.

Happy Birthday, Mama Sling.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
