Debt... chipping away

I have PAID OFF my car share bill, IN FULL.

Not one penny left that I owe them.


Oh, & I found $15 on the road yesterday. A $10 and a $5 note. Things are looking up :)

Course, of Course

It has been way too long since I've been planning on doing the Yoga Anatomy & Physiology course run by Yoga Synergy.

Each year it comes around. And each year I get excited... and then despondant because I can't afford it. Well looks like it's going to be a tight month on the budget front but so be it - because his year, I AM ENROLLED! I am doing it! And I am so excited : )

It starts next weekend so stay tuned for exciting updates xxx

“Meryl Tankard… astonishing, superb, disconcerting.” Le Figaro Magazine

Internationally acclaimed for the emotional punch packed into her inventive choreography, Meryl Tankard is one of Australia’s finest contemporary artists. She continues to work around the world, with recent projects ranging from a sell-out Sydney Festival collaboration titled KAIDAN with Taiko drummers, to the new Broadway musical Tarzan.

I won 2 tix to see the amazing INUK2 at the Theatre Royal last week, and took Miss Em along with me for a night of fun. It was FABULOUS - but how can one describe the lightness of the dancers? The phenomenal choreography? The strength of the cast? It is a near impossible task to describe it all as eloquently as it deserves, but hopefully I've made a start.

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to see MONSTERS with Sylvie Guillam at the Opera House - where it was literally Sylvie and one other dancer on a blank white stage. So coming to Inuk2 and seeing a cast of 17 dancers all doing different things was a completely different experience - but both left me speechless! At time in both I laughed aloud, I gasped and had a sore mouth and jaw from smiling so much tehee

What a fabulous night!

The Art of Listening - Take 2

I had to laugh aloud as I was reading my fave blogs this evening, when I came across Everyday Yogini who had this to say: Even after years of practicing Yoga, I am skilled at the art of ignoring my body. Which is evidenced by my shoulder injury recently while practicing. This is also evidenced by my recent and amazing binge of all things pizza and dessert, which has led me back into a health crisis. Seriously.

I read this as I am literally switching between 2 laptops - my home one where I'm catching up on emails and sites, & my work computer, where I'm catching up on a busy day's worth of emails. Oh, and the TV is on, with my mobile phone ringing beside me. I kid you not!!

But even funnier (if that is the word!) is that I was googling for SPIRULINA on one web page as I was waiting for Blogger to load on another, because I was going to write a post about the magic natural potion that is this amazing spirulina - which was recommended to me yesterday as I'm so run down!!! Seriously.

So yes - the world works in wonderful ways, and today while I was trying to do way too many things at once, it was spelled out clearly in front of me : "Even after years of practicing Yoga, I am skilled at the art of ignoring my body". But I'm not going to ignore all these signs around me, and the TV is off now. The work stuff is put aside, and I'm going to have a relaxing shower! Oh, and I'm passing my lesson onto you - if you're sometimes not tuned into your own body, be sure to listen to all those little signs around you, and take it easy. : )

x me

PS - and if you are a bit run down yourself, spirulina (with its nutrients by the bucketload) is apparently the great natural cure. Oh, and so is resting, eating fruit, drinking water, and napping. ;)
