Bean Patch Yoga
We will call this asana the suspended downward dog.
Bend at the hips. Keep your back as straight as you can.
Sweep the bush to the left.
Pick. Breathe. Toss.
To the right. Pick-breathe-toss.
Shuffle forward, keeping your core muscles tight.
Sweep left-pick-breathe-toss. Right-pick-breathe-toss.
Stop. Drop your arms,
and roll upward slowly,
vertebra by vertebra,
breathing in on a count of eight.
Breathe out and in, slowly, carefully.
Breathe into your back muscles.
Repeat this asana one hundred times.

4. Synchronicity: In a conversation with a stranger, she spoke of her friendly and caring neighborhood. Suddenly we were talking about people we know in common.
5. Feathers. One Small Boy has begun to join me on the daily Noticing of feathers. “Mom! Here’s your feather for today!” Every day.
May we walk in Beauty!
