JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 324 :: joy is 32 days

23 Nov

{until christmas} 

Santa Claus is coming to town…  in 32 days. It’s officially the holiday season. Thanksgiving is over and with it so is this year coming to a close. What an amazing journey it has been so far. 

We have seen so many twists and turns, some of great joy (moving back to Patriot Nation) and others of great sorrow (saying goodbye to Nancy and Pup). As the year turns its final corner into the final month, I have to wonder what joy is waiting for us in the coming month?

Thirty-two days until Christmas. Thirty-eight days until the New Year. 
May each one be full of joy. 

More tomorrow…

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 211:: on top of the world

6 Aug

Day 210: Up in the clouds.

Oh. What. A. Day.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember what is in my backyard. I see the peak of Mt. Baker every day, usually, when there is sun, peaking out from behind the top of a tree.. And yet… I had NO idea that Mt. Baker is actually THIS…

Until today.

Stacy took us on a seven-mile hike and up, up, up we climbed…

Through snow…

And yoga poses….without falling over or down the cliff I might add…

And flowers…

And with canine helpers too, this little girl was herding us all up the hill, and there was something quite reassuring about that. Like she knew the way.

And now, at night, as I am safely tucked in, sitting at my kitchen table, much closer to the sea than to the “ski” up above. But I am remembering what it felt like to be up in the clouds. In the fresh air, the cool wind and untouched beauty.

It’s breathtaking, really.

So far this year with this promise, I have done yoga on the beach, on a train, on a plane, and, now, on top of a mountain.

And no matter how high up we go, or low we land, (or wobbly our legs feel) I am learning to stay grounded.  Feet on the ground, head in the clouds, rolling with the waves. Like the Mountain, the Tree, and the Sea.

And maybe that is what yoga is trying to teach me?
To be with Nature.
Instead of pushing against her.

More tomorrow.
