The Past Few Days…

January 22nd, 2007 — 8:44pm

From last Thursday to yesterday, I was at the Yoga Journal San Francisco Conference. As always, I come away with new insights. I am so fortunate to meet remarkable people in the course of my work. They sometimes inspire me. This time around, Patricia Walden,one of the main successors of BKS Iyengar’s teachings in the West asked me to ask myself, “Why am I embodied in this body?” An excellent question, and one that engages me.
And yet, I also bumped into my same friend at our yoga marketplace trying on flowing Stevie Nick’s kind of clothes, the same friend who at Thanksgiving told me to buy some Spanx. “I know you don’t want to hear it…” she said as I tried on flowing flowery lycra bellbottoms. “You’re right,” I replied. She ignored me. “Buy some Spanx.” The juxtaposition of her Spanx with the groovy, “accept yourself” vibe of the marketplace was truly strange.

And in book news, my husband Scott headed up to Seattle tonight to go speak at Microsoft tomorrow. He is speaking with programmers about his new book, “Dreaming in Code”. (Damn, I must learn how to link in this blog.) He’ll be doing NPR “Marketplace” soon. It’s all so great to see after his many years of disciplined hard work.
