Happy New Year! 2011

I spent the past weekend at Healing Waters Lodge in Headwaters, VA. New Year's Eve has not been a cause for revelry for me in many, many years, so when I was asked to come and offer some yoga classes and yoga nidra I had no plans holding me back.

As usual, I went to be early. Just before midnight, the sounds of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" woke me (the house was also shaking!). This group had rolled up the rug and everyone was dancing in front of the fireplace.

Sleepy as I was, I shrugged on my down coat, slid my feet into boots, and joined the gang on the front lawn - there was still snow on the ground, the sky was amazing - super dark and full of stars. After sipping a cup of sparkling cider, I slid away and climbed back  into bed. Another year over, a new one just begun.
