I used to watch her come into the yoga studio.  She always looked so put together…so happy…so peaceful.  Her gray hair laid beautifully…effortlessly gracing her shoulders.  She always had on the most exquisite silver rings, wrap bracelets, mala beads.  Seeing … Continue reading

Day 152: Teaching an old dog new tricks
