Autumn Equinox, A New Beginning

Updated: Sep 24, 2021

Rather than apologize, again, for "forgetting" about this space and pushing my creative outlets aside I will nod once in acceptance that a blog does not create itself, that I know I must write in order to publish, and for flippantly saying things like "in my next post" when I know full well there is no next post.

Can you really say new beginning when every time you get on here is a "new beginning"? It's ground-hogs day but like once every 3 months I realize I've neglected a platform that I swore to myself the last time I logged in I would use - I promised myself via paypal payment to this wix site for a 365 day subscription I would use - And I don't. Alas, I probably need to read a self help book about habit formation and then I will be cured but I'm trying not to buy any more new books as our shelves are stuffed to the brim with books I haven't read.

So what brought me back here to self-deprecatingly reflect in a public way? I began a "Fall Challenge" today. Forty days of yoga, meditation, reflection and accountability. After a long morning of buying random [totally necessary] stuff on amazon and looking, longingly, on instagram at @itsmetix (s/o to my friends, I didn't need to be obsessed with a 30 year old content creator but here we are) it was time to meet on Zoom.


Our first task was to think of the way the world perceives us, then think of the ways that we perceive ourselves. For me, I believe I am seen as a daughter, girlfriend, pittsburger and a physical therapist. I perceive myself to be a healer, a writer, creative, yogi and music lover. I perceive this be cause at my root {chakra} I know it is true, but it is not how I am received by the world because it's not really what I cast out. And within the first 10 minutes of our meeting, I knew what I needed to do.

I propose making this next 40 days about: spending more time logged off, doing more yoga and exercise, being outside, and posting (once a day would be a miracle, so let's go with once a week?). I want to create and share, learn and teach.

With Gratitude,

Yoga Check In

I have returned to a dedicated practice (unlike my writing). While on my last contract I was taking Bikram style classes, I am currently at a studio where I'm experiencing gentle morning vinyasa, jui

I Miss Teaching Yoga

Unroll the mat. Check the temperature of the room. Turn on the salt lamps. Put on the pre-yoga playlist. Students arrive. Chatter begins. Some lay on their backs or their bellies and let the day wash

The Word is Pickle

Blood warms my cheeks and fills my ears. My palms prickle and my fingers curl like a snake waiting to strike. I feel the breath held at the top of my chest. I keep it there, holding it close to pro
