Walk: Fillmore Street, Mindful Body
Distance: 3 miles and teach yoga class
Here's what I think is happening in ciwt's little mind: the reality of age and death are becoming more real, closer. There's the goodbye I just said to a friend's dog, Callie of course, my face in the mirror, friends, acquaintances, friends of friends, famous people being comparatively incapacitated/'not themselves.' For ever and ever this has gone on without a deep sense of me being part of the process. Ie, with denial. But denial is definitely lifting of its own accord- in dreams certainly.
CIWT is not going to be a morbid place but seemed appropriate today to at least mention 'all this' - get it out in the open. Sometimes it is kind of relief to really get it, stop fighting, stop freaking out at the mirror, respecting what is or assimilating it a bit more.
Of course, sometimes not at all. A lot of the time not - which is just fine with me.
On another note, Prince Harry, who is visiting the States, seems much cooler than I realized.
