Sweet dreams are made of this

Supta K #8. I TOTALLY NAILED IT! Hands just moved toward one another like magnets.

Er, and then I woke up.

Practice today was one of those practices where you realize that it takes commitment to keep practicing. It just isn't feeling very brilliant lately, or at least not today. But still I press on. I think that it's amazing that I get so many adjustments in the Marichyasanas and Supta K. But on the other hand, it tires me out like nobody's business. Today I made a conscious decision to hold back just a little bit, to really stick to five breaths in each posture (except Parv Parsva Kona), to not even try to jump through with straight legs. I really wanted to have the energy for Supta K. And clearly, I need to build my stamina up. But that will come. Supta K was fine. Nothing new to report other than I was able to press up with my ankles crossed. But I'm all closed in on myself, and my ankles are in front of my face instead of behind my neck. Ah well. In time. In time. In time. Seven down, 8,000 or so to go, more or less.

REW gives a great explanation of the essential themes of Passover in her blog today. Hopefully later on, I will be able to sit down and continue the story I started two days ago.
