|It keeps doing this...|
My most recent dream is that the water is off and I am reminded of it when I turn on the faucet. There's water in the reservoir but not enough to, say, finish washing the dishes. Also dreamed that I was sitting on the floor across from a pregnant woman who had recently experienced a death in the family; she wanted to know about energy work and I told her about one of the interventions where the meridians are lightly brushed.
I wonder, with the latter dream, if I am mixing reality with reality TV. I watched, to me, one of the funniest episodes of An Idiot Abroad. Karl is in Thailand and, as a "reward" for training with a boxer, he's sent for a Thai massage in a women's prison where there are mattresses on the floor for the massages. Karl doesn't find the Thai massage very relaxing because he's thinking that his therapist might have murdered someone plus the massage gets intense. It's pretty funny when Karl asks while the therapist is massaging his glutes: You don't get stress in your ass, do you?
I've also been watching The Long Way Round with Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman who are whipped into shape (by a trainer) before their journey and McGregor asks Why do we need to work our asses like that?
Went to Gloria's 9 o'clock class yesterday. Before class started, Juliano said We need a bigger room. The room at our fitness facility is pretty large. Plus, Juliano missed the days when Gloria only had one class on Sunday. Gloria reminded us that the class is not full until everyone is one hand space a part and she appreciates us making room for others.
Juliano just started going to a yoga studio too and they are packed as well.
Since I don't like the back of the bus feeling, I will get to my Saturday yoga class earlier. It also seems that many are on the cranky edge and dealing with tight quarters. I will say that I felt much better after Sherry gave me the mother of all hugs. Sherry then introduced me to one of her buddies who also gave me a hug. Overall, it was nice to be back in Gloria's class even though she had us do lots of ab work in preparation for bird of paradise pose. Have you seen that bird situation?
Went to get a massage and the therapist told me You know the rules -- relax and enjoy. Of course, words alone don't make a good massage but she is talented.
I often think of massage therapists as angels and ambassadors of harmony. Many of them run clinics in decorum. I know, it's their job but...
The therapist sent me on my way with hot tea. The snow looked magical. I sang, felt more loving, centered et al.
On the way to the massage, saw a church billboard with a T.S. Elliot quote:
If I got rid of my demons, I'd lose my angels.
