Setting the Table

“when you wake up in the morning, pooh” said piglet at last “what’s the first thing you say to yourself”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh “what do you say Piglet”
“I say I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.  “it’s the same thing” he said.

Yoga v. Cigarette

my mind is a flurry of thoughts during yoga practice.  None of which ever seem to be things like “namaste” or “lentils are delicious!” or “ah yes! I am imagining that tree!” but more like “pizza!”, “booze”, “cigarettes!”, or “i should get stoned before coming here”

Yoga v. Cheeseburger

I started off the new year doing yoga every morning around 6am.  I also attend a weekly (if I’m good) class in town out in public with other people.  it’s lovely, but my mind is never rested or at peace.   it worries and it considers dinner instead.
