Running: Just a Few Thoughts and a Bit of Self-Promotion

I've been swamped with things to do since we returned from our adventures.  I've taken and taught several yoga classes.  I teach tonight and then head out for supper with friends who are moving out West from Ottawa.  I've been friends with Jay for over 40 years (yikes!) and even longer with another friend who will be there, so this annual meet up is an important event for all of us.  We love catching up with all the changes which have occurred during the times we're not together.

I'm spinning and knitting samples for an upcoming article, with the copy due in July.  I'm teaching at Fibre Week at Olds College, Alberta, an event that I've attended for many years, both as a student and instructor. I've had a great time every year.  It's an intensive week of all things related to spinning, a time to learn new things, meet new people and visit with old friends. I will be teaching Level 1 of the Master Spinner Certificate Programme.  There is much preparation to be done, from gathering supplies and samples, to working out daily class plans and signing contracts, most of it done long distance, which has been interesting, especially since I have never taught in this particular programme.  Everyone has been very helpful and things are coming together nicely.

Then there's this project: Bodhi 101: Yoga and Meditation for Absolute Beginners.  (Click on the link for more information.) If you're in our area on Saturday afternoon, June 14, have an interest in yoga and/or meditation, but have no idea where to start or you've started and felt a bit awkward in class, these are workshops just for you.  Donna and I will walk you through everything you need to get started in a yoga/meditation practice.  It's a great way to start the summer and we hope you'll join us.

Meanwhile, it's back to sampling before I head off to teach Renew.  I'm running, but it's nice to feel the wind rush past me as I do!

The wind was wild the day I took this photograph, but the trees stayed strong and the water remained calm.
