February dreck

I’ve been in a bad winter funk lately. I’ve just been indoors way too much. The weather sucks. My job has been way too sedentary and slow-moving for my tastes. I’m gaining weight again after losing a bunch of after the holiday. My bicycle is outside rusting because I don’t have room for it in […]

Yoga, level 2

I started the “Level 2” class tonight, and actually broke a sweat for a change. I can’t even describe the ways I was trying to contort myself, but they all have names in Sanskrit. This class is much different from the Level 1 class. It’s smaller, for one. Some of the people in that class […]

Sunday in slow motion

Since I don’t have to go to work until 10:30 on Sundays, I decided to go to yoga this morning. Sunday mornings are the full Ashtanga series, something I’ve never done before.

Frontline is airing its monthly diatribe against Wal-Mart. Imagine being Wal-Mart. You discovered that China has millions of low-paid workers who are forbidden by law and by the threat of violence to unionize, vote, or criticize the government. What would you do? Yoga tonight. I am sore.
