But the Arctic Vortex has rudely reached this peninsula, and now like so many others I am counting the days to spring. I am grateful to have something to look forward to...
The art of gratefulness has been the thread holding the Tuesday 9:30 hot yoga class together since Thanksgiving. A little core work to free up the body and a little gratefulness practice to free up the mind balances out the class. I hope the yogis like it.
A reading of Jeanie Manchester's poem was a favorite.
I am grateful for my limits
that teach me patience and pace
From Thanksgiving to Superbowl there is a lot to update...my lack of blogging was a disappointment to the primate and as I attempt to bring everything current I see how much I have to be grateful for.

Super Bowl was trumped by a marathon of Say Yes to the Dress.
A revived workout schedule is in progress. There is cadence in the gym too. Ashley Borden The shoulder is under advisement...more data is needed, but the Primate is biking all over the Virginia countryside. Pat is spinning and Bren is about to have some fun teaching at Bouley Botanical. Incentivizing, a process taught to me by Kimberly, was employed by me to facilitate a small change in the Primate's behavior. The outcome was miraculous.
"Make a Left at Greenland" in the title is a puzzle. It is an answer to a question. I'd like to know if anyone knows what the question was and the name of the person who answered it.
