Something totally trivial

I saw this on someone's blog just now and thought it would be a good distraction from my slightly blue mood.  It was. I think I'm going to attempt to get myself to a yoga class now.  Virgin Yoga.  (Will they let me in?)

Later:  So I went to yoga and it wasn't exactly virgin, everyone there had done it before and the class was great.  I remembered why I loved yoga so much years ago (I stopped in 2002 when my beloved teacher moved away.)  I love the way my body feels and I love the messages.  Today it was about how yoga is the search for oneself, the true self.  And by doing yoga we take care of the body so the search can continue.  The teacher was a beautiful woman, with long legs and long blond hair and I looked at her and thought, "Wow, she is so gorgeous, no kids probably, just gets to do her yoga and practice" and after the class we had a long talk and it turns out she's got two kids and her husband is moving out and she's a wreck, trying to deal with it all.  So we hugged and I can't wait to go back next week.  I have to say I love the gym again - and that there are very good yoga classes there now.  You were right, Mia.  As always.

I love that teacher! I'm so sorry she's having domestic troubles. She has unwittingly helped me through many problems of my own with her chance remarks, funny stories (often about the bar she works in--or used to--as well as her kids). Just a really nice person--plus she's a former journalist.
