A Practice for Maty Ezraty (1963-2019)

  Samasthiti.   I stand at attention at the front of my mat.

I never really knew more than what the Madonna’s song taught me, because you … you — my […]

You […]

Home is where …

Home is where the heart is. Where the naps await, the sweatpants loosen, and the bedhead tangles.

Home is with my loves; wherever […]
