Well everyone, I’m doing something new this week. I’m in Mexico (in August) sweating because it’s about 90% humidity when it isn’t raining.
My daughter and I are doing a vegan/raw cleanse at a yoga retreat. Yeah. So anyone ever hear me talk about yoga? No? That’s because I haven’t done it in years, but I am now! Twice a day! So guess what I’m learning while here…
- Vegan food can be fabulous! Especially when it’s lots of fresh mango and avocado
- Surrender. As in my body surrendered into poses I didn’t think I could make. And then my shoulder surrendered when I tried a chaturanga and landed face first into my yoga mat. Oops.
- I can get used to feeling sweaty and sticky, especially when I’m exhausted from yoga and zenning out while watching the ocean waves.
- Everything’s good when reading a great book.
Answer: All of the above! Yup, the food here is great. My shoulder did indeed give up the ghost on day 5. No more yoga for me. But that just means I have more time to read and watch the waves! And well, everyone’s sweaty here, so it’s all good! BTW, I missed the turtle hatching because I was reading Vivien Jackson’s Wanted and Wired. Really loved that book.
So now it’s your turn. Have you done anything new this August? Tell me and one lucky commenter will get an e-copy of THE STONE MEN Vol 1. My novella, ROCK HARD, won a Prism Award!
