....and it's still dark. I'm sipping my bitter coffee. Not everything needs to be sweet to be good.
Yesterday I enrolled for an online class on portrait photography. Mmmmm. I'm still happy with this decision. It lasts 30 days and starts in November. Me, a portrait photographer with only one model: myself. Hahahaha. I know how important it is not to stop learning. To move the body and to move the mind are signs that one is not yet half-dead, but fully alive. It spices up the entire life. I'm curious. Light will be a main topic in this class. Of course. It's all about light.
Yesterday I was downtown in a very posh shop. I was even a bit shy to enter it. Elegance can create distance, even an unseen wall. But I entered. Inside the shop was a tiny hall with a step that led to the second floor. The business happened only there. The salesperson who greeted me when I arrived a floor higher was so professional that I felt well at once. To meet people who have a nice personality and expertise and are able to present both easy-going are a pure joy. I walked home from downtown afterwards. The sun was shining, it was a summer day. I couldn't resist to go to the English bookstore next. The book by Seth Godin "Linchpin" wanted to go home with me. I bought it. I need uplifting literature, inspiring ones on a daily basis.
On the picture is parighasana: I'm glad to see that also the left side is better now. My overstretched leg is almost healed. Almost. This was indeed a learning experience. Nothing can be forced. Perseverance is it. My attitude during my yoga practice today will be: Let it happen.
Oh, it's time to shower.........
