We did frog pose in yoga today, a polarizing posture, but I reside firmly on the "love" pole. They say that hip openers can provide an emotional release, and I don't know if I am a firm believer in all that, but I do know that since class I've been close to overflowing, emotions-wise. Maybe that's why I love the hip openers, who knows. I have always been a big fan of periodically bringing up my deep-down stuff. It's healthy. And occasionally rewarding, when the stuff that results is just wave after wave of joy and gratitude.
Sometimes everything just comes together. Family, friends, beautiful weather, one unbelievably happy kid. This past weekend was one of the greats.
I have to say it's also particularly cool to not only see old friends and pick up with them where you left off, but have your offspring do the same. I don't know if our kids will be forever friends when they're teenagers and their interests become more specific, but for now to watch our five-year-olds play like they saw each other yesterday, it makes my heart bloom. May we have a chance to do it again soon.
Some other amazing things happened when I was away that have nothing to do with me specifically, but everything to do with everyone. Awesome job, SCOTUS (the majority of you, anyway). What a time to be alive. And there go those hips again.
