The shape or outline is vaguely there and I feel a quiet confidence and a quickening of pulse as I know it will all come together - soon. I am eager to hunt up a frame, begin experimenting with backgrounds and at the same time I know more idleness is needed - slow down, Vicki! I was inspired today by reading a commencement speech given by writer, Anne Lamott. Here is an excerpt:
"But slow down if you can. Better yet, lie down. In my 20s I devised a school of relaxation that has unfortunately fallen out of favor in the ensuing years -- it was called Prone Yoga. You just lie around as much as possible. You could read, listen to music, you could space out, or sleep. But you had to be lying down. Maintaining the prone."
Maintaining the prone. At last someone has named my yoga practice!
