Guilty Non-Pleasures

There's water pouring out of my bathroom ceiling.  The plumber said he'd be here between 9 and 11.  It is now 11:34.  I have six things on my To Do list today and yet I should add to it a visit to my grandparents who are both in the hospital again.  I don't know what to do first.  So instead of doing anything I'm going to make myself Tea and put on some good music and write in my blog.  It's been too long. 

Tomorrow J and I perform a Yoga Girl and Swami Cat skit at Jayanthi for Rev. Jaganath's 61st birthday celebration.  We've been practicing all week.  I have to sing, so I hope I don't choke like I did in college.  I had a solo and in the middle of it my voice cracked, or should I say squeaked.  I was so embarrassed.  But this is a comedy and I never said Yoga Girl was a professional singer.  She's more like Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) trying to be a Yogi.

Hope you all have a wonderful non-guilt filled day.  And maybe I will see you at the celebration tomorrow.  If so, please send me lots of positive, non-squeaky energy.

Love and light,
Yoga Girl (A.K.A. Karuna)

Most Brilliantly put-- in the age of the internet-- Arts-- Spirituality--Community...

This is a must watch video from Ted Talks online.  A brilliant speaker, Ben Cameron, is also a very nice guy.  I met him in Alaska while my play was being performed there, before I was a Yogi and was pursuing the arts as my livelihood.  What he mentions here is why I've started the blog in the first place to merge Yoga, service and my love of the arts.

Be Well.  Enjoy life.  Create and go to art when you can.

Love and light,
