A Spiritual Journey, Taken in a Cluttered Station Wagon

Crushing Disappointment in the Mighty March 30, 2010

Sometimes, we hold other wise folk up, we make small idols of them, respecting their judgment, their wisdom, their discretion…even though we have never met them in our “real” lives. When they inevitably fail to meet our high expectations, it as if a child in our hearts has left us…weeping in sadness and desolation. I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about, my loyal readers….


Sigh. It’s a dark day in my Reality-TV cave, kidlets. Only time and an exceptional single malt (neat) will soothe my inner pain.

The Fabulous Miss Carrie did some great hip openers today. (Full disclosure: I am a sucker for hip work. I don’t know why, but I looooove hip openers, the more intense and longer held the better. I’m sure that some of you who are better versed in chakras and meridians could explain the deeper reasons for this. I suspect that maybe it’s like “The SPAZ will find extra SPAZZINESS released from the hip joints…..”) She adapted them from some Yin work she’s been doing lately, which, I must say is an area I want to further explore. This is the most understandable explanation of Yin Yoga I’ve ever seen:

There are some great Yoga videos available on YouTube. As I move forward, I’ll make it a point to share the ones that resonate with me. I know we all respond to different explanations, but it’s nice to get a reference that cuts through the plethora of “Hot Babes doing Down Dog” videos out there. I swear, it’s enough to make me believe that our buddy Ogden (see previous post) is real.
