JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 243 back in the saddle

6 Sep

Day 243: Falling back in.

I’m back in the saddle here, vacation is over. And it seems, everyone else is too. I LOVE all the back to school photos on Facebook and Social Media from friends far and wide.

Fall seems to have its own brand of magic leading us up and into the holidays which are just around the corner. But first… there is football.

And today, I joined my first Fantasy Football League Draft. Yes… this happened:

Doesn’t it seem ironic that in this year of YOGA I would be doubling down on football? Maybe. Or maybe not.

In a way, I think a little fantasy football may be the ticket to becoming “one” with my other half… and possibly finally understanding half of what he’s saying in the months between October and February.

You know, just half the year. Each year. Every year.

Or, maybe it will be a complete disaster and I will make an enormous fool out of myself in front of friends and family across the country on game day and during holidays. How exciting. Anything is possible.

If it all goes downward dog I will return to meditation. And prayer.
As in, Oh dear lord please complete that pass!

Or maybe not. Maybe I will be as cool as an “ignorance is bliss” cucumber.
We. Will. See.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 216 :: that time when…

12 Aug

Day 216: Relax, don’t do it.

And this is what we call #Friday.
Or… Brady being Brady.
Or… The Big Yawn.
Or… Upward Dog.

Or maybe, bad, distracted, pushover dog master extraordinaire who let it happen to get the photo.
You choose.

Happy Friday. (Yoga done!)

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 194 :: airport yoga

19 Jul

Day 194: Adventures.

Headed home on a jet plane… headed back to this funny face:

As I sit in the airport I realize I am getting good at airport yoga…. stretching while sitting, bending while standing still, breathing while waiting in line.

There should be a whole new category of moves for airport yoga like….
The Downward Dodge – moving out of the way of the 2-year-old behind me in line who was on a leash (yes, a child leash) and kept running in and out of the legs of the people all around him (not related to him).

There is a yoga room at this airport but not in my terminal… so alas I have yet to really do yoga at an airport. Maybe next trip.

Until then… I’m downward dodging all the way home!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 123 :: downward dog

3 May

Day 123: Pup again. 

I think Pup dreams about kitties.

When he’s all curled up in a bed, eyes closed, asleep, he dreams about kitties. I can tell by the way he moves his feet, running after them. In actuality, he really stands still when he sees one.

And today, he saw two.

They appeared right before him. Bonanza!!!! One on the sidewalk, the other in the grass. Kitties. Two kitties! It was so exciting he didn’t even move. He didn’t even bark. He didn’t even blink.

It was like a dream. come. true.

Pup makes me think about a lot of things, the way he observes, acts, sees, smells, dreams.

And it makes me wonder if we all act that way — when our dreams come true — standing still, shocked, dazed, confused. “Saying, is that really a kittie???”

Yes, Pup those are real. Here’s to real kitties, Pup. May we all learn to recognize our dreams when they come true.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. Yoga done!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 82 :: downward puppy day

23 Mar

Day 82: Our Pups.

It’s National Puppy Day — and for this Pup who is about to turn 15 it seems like quite the honor. Here’s our Pup a few years ago, standing on the pier of the island that we love.


And here’s a more mature Pup:

And here’s a flashback to our tiny Brady meeting Pup for the first time:

They change. We change. They grow. We grow. But they will always be our Pups.
So in their honor… I do a downward dog!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 46 :: more play, less serious

16 Feb

Day 46. Looking differently.

I had an epiphany the other night. Mostly because Justin told me to pick up my toys. He was pointing at my yoga mats, the ones we had just used to do yoga. He was also kidding, making a joke, and trying to make me laugh.

But the more I thought about it, I realized, he was right!
Toys. Fun. Games. Yoga!


Aha!

And then I started thinking… what if I just had more fun? More play? Less intent and serious stretching. What if I just thought of my yoga mat as getting out my toys? What fun. What joy. What if?

And so… I wonder… what if we could just make everything more fun by just looking at things differently?

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”-Wayne Dyer

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
