Useful

Cascade
Cascade, Monoprint with silkscreen, Akua ink on paper, 2016.

I have been rereading my neglected yoga blog in an attempt to retrace my steps.  In many ways I have not been able to get back to the woman I was.  Grief has been a potent force in my life and I am slow to recover, so I search here for clues to my own healing.

I am still practicing more or less daily yoga at New England Yoga in Littleton, MA.  Practice is as practice does, and I struggle to keep my mind on my mat and to enact the moving meditation that is at the heart of the primary series of Ashtanga yoga.  I dream of getting back to 2nd series, but at the moment there are obstacles.

What I can say is that in the intervening years my art has matured a great deal, and I am embarking on a new adventure to find ways to make more work and to bring it out into the world through exhibits and sales.

Without any self-pity or excuses, what time I might have used for this blog in 2016 has been spent in resisting the damage of our current political administration.  I’m not sorry, it has, I believe, been necessary.  There are many ways to serve.

Still, this space for writing and contemplation seems exquisitely useful, and I intend not to abandon it altogether.  See you in 2017.

One thought on “Useful

  1. I must admit that there have been times over the past few years where I have wished the you were still “the woman you were”. I so enjoyed traveling the yoga path together back then, both literally; driving hours and hours together to class, and often practicing side by side, and figuratively, as we compared notes and experiences. I miss that, but at the same time, I am so proud of the woman you have become. You are fighting for what I believe in, and I admire that so much. We need warriors like you, and as much as I believe in your cause, I know I am not a fighter. Go forward, with pride and without regret. You are doing second series! xxxxoooo
