Yesterday was a loss. Complete waste of a day. That is what happens when I overindulge the previous day. Instead of enjoying both of my days off. I end up recovering in one of them.
I spent the morning at the yoga studio. I could not avoid that responsibility and so I drank coffee and counted the minutes down. I love the studio. I was just tired and in desperate need of rest. Not feeling like the most engaging person that is for sure.
Monday, I worked at the studio and followed that up with lunch with my friend, Lawrence and his wife. Thankfully, I managed to do my laundry before beginning wine lunch. We had a progressive lunch and continued on to a downtown establishment. I wanted Lawrence to see what it was like before dropping him off at a concert. I retired to my house and had a picnic dinner later that evening.
All, in all, a lovely day surrounded by friends, food and wine. I am realizing that I have a few weeks left before my new adventure begins. There is still a lot that I would like to do while in Santa Fe. I know there will be a return to Ojo since I absolutely adore that. And, there are a few core restaurants that I want to check out before departing. I call this time in my life, the departure tour. I probably will not have a going away party as I do not have the space to do it. The majority of my belongings are now in Denver. The picnic dinner the other night was interesting. Kitchy, charming, fun....but not something that I want to repeat on many occasions. A few of my friends here are interested in a party of sorts but I think I am running out of time. I believe my departure will have to be done on a one on one basis. I saw Lawrence and Jenn, Monday. I will more than likely see Melody at Ojo and Libby and I have an upcoming walk scheduled. I might see Scooby Snack or not. I haven't really decided.
I know that I am on the right path and that I am ready to be home. My time away has been lovely and eye opening. I do enjoy starting over and meeting new people. I thrive on it. I have expanded my social circle. When I visit, I will have more people to see and a few yoga instructors to hang out with. Hopefully, I will be able to do a sample class for Mira in the future. I started this journey to improve the quality of teaching here and realized that I wanted to deepen my practice first. Then, I will focus on teaching others. I have found that some of the recent graduates are not equipped to adjust students and I do not want to be that kind of teacher. I want to inspire others to deepen their own practice and feel comfortable approaching me with suggestions. I feel that I need more time as a student before taking the lead to teach. My training will conclude in a month. I am thankful for that. Work keeps me busy and productive. I am off~
