chinese yoga pants

reminds me of a funny story – i went in to pick up chinese food last night after teaching a yoga class and the lady looked me up and down as i walked in. ‘you lip pants like that on purpose or you come here with lipped pants?’
(i was wearing yoga pants with slits up the legs ankle to knee)
i replied that i had just come from a yoga class and these were designed for ease of movement.
she said, ‘oh you yoga.  i tai chi.  which you think is better?’
of course i said tai chi – she was in charge of my dinner.

and yes, i ate chinese food last night.  i’ve also eaten popcorn since i’ve known karl – crazy what love will make you do......

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life 
~ Dawna Markova

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.
