JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 326 :: joy is a rest

25 Nov

{sunday, sunday} 

Sundays are for rest, rejuvenation, and around here, football. Today, it was a special day reserved for a little shopping and tree decorating and some Patriots. All very Christmas-y things for me.

But, last night I broke an ornament. So, today I bought a new one. It isn’t a replacement, really, it’s a substitution. It’s new. It’s shiny. I love it. Just like the old one.

The new ornament is a heart with angel wings in gold. It reminds me to focus on the joy of what we have, what we have lost and all the things that we have yet to know that we cannot possibly guess right now. 

And that is a lesson in joy. Sometimes, joy is just being with the now, right now. 

Today was a Sunday, which in so many ways is the place between the old and the new. 
And, right now, I’m trying to hold onto the joy of the weekend now before it too slips away into the new now.

Joy is a moment in time.

More tomorrow…

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 79 :: march madness

20 Mar

Day 79: Brackets.

There is no madness like March. Because there is nothing more powerful than a clock running down to bring the power of NOW into right NOW.

I sat on the edge of my seat tonight watching Texas A&M secure their sweet spot  in nothing short of a miracle. And my heart fell for Northern Iowa as their own miraculous path disintegrated in not one – but two – overtime opportunities.

“This is madness!” I yelled at the television screen many times. “Madness!”
And it is madness I tell you. The Madness of marching to the final four.

And while nothing is more exciting than watching heroes born in the final moments of a game with time running off the clock, it’s also exhausting.

And that has me thinking…it is a not so gentle reminder that every second counts. In our games, in our sports, in our lives the time is ticking.

It’s madness really how fast time flies. Madness. But I suppose that is always our choice, how to bring the power of NOW into right NOW.

So right now…I am off to do some yoga.

More tomorrow.
