Yay! is for YOGA!


I finally found someone willing to give me a private (modified for my arm) yoga lesson.


I really enjoyed it.

Also …?

My arm is really sore, but that’s okay.

My instructor did a lot of pre-work (homework?) before we met.

She had modifications for me  –

And MORE modifications … and then, even MORE modifications.

It made me realize there’s absolutely no way I could have gone directly into a class without getting individual help first.

I’m going to meet with her once a week for a few weeks and then, hopefully, I’ll have my modifications down well enough to move into a regular class.

(Private lessons are wonderful, but way too expensive to continue long term.)

I’m really excited about it.

It’s just a baby step, but it’s a beginning and that makes it a very encouraging new adventure in my life.

In other news,

I’ve put a deposit down on a trip BY MYSELF to Cuba.

It *might* be canceled because rumor has it Trump will be rescinding almost everything Obama did regarding Cuba policy changes very soon – possibly as soon as tomorrow when he’s in Miami.

But, I’m hoping any new changes don’t go into effect until January.

We’ll see.

Cuba has been high on my Shoot List, always.

My Cuba trip is currently planned for the end of October – keep your fingers crossed for me!

I’ll be so disappointed if it’s cancelled as a result of the political turmoil in the US right now.

Aussie readers (and I know there are a LOT of you!), I’m also working on my itinerary for an Australia trip in February.

A friend of my family is a travel agent.

Her initial proposal came in as a four week Australia trip costing tens of thousands of dollars.

I wish I had that much time and money, but I don’t ….

So, I’ll be working on possible alternative itineraries for Australia in coming weeks.

Tomorrow/Friday I’m headed to Texas and I won’t be back until Tuesday.

I’m not sure if I’ll have time to post from Texas, but I’ll try!

    I have wanted to see Cuba for a long time, I’m not sure why. I think because it’s been stuck in another decade and I think it must be beautiful in a unique way. I hope you get to go. Will you take me with you? One of our girls works for a non-profit and has traveled extensively over the past several years. She is in Ethiopia. I love seeing photos of places that are so different from the usual. Have fun in Texas. Definitely NOT on my bucket list 🙂

      I’ve also wanted to see Cuba for a long time.
      It looks like my trip will go forward …!
      I would love to see the entire world, but I don’t have the resources to make that happen.
      Few things make me as happy as exploring locations I haven’t been to with my camera in my hands!

    YAY for Yoga. So glad you didn’t give up, and you will be stronger because of it.

    And Cuba, I look forward to seeing/reading about your trip. And also your trip to the Top of the World, I mean, Australia!!

      I’m very excited about yoga … but, I will admit it is really, really, difficult with my arm.
      Still, I hope it will become easier with time.

      Cuba is scheduled for late fall and it’s definitely something to look forward to.
      I’ve wanted to go there for many years.

      And, Australia?
      I’ve wanted to visit for DECADES.

      I’m really excited about all of it.

    Glad to hear you found a private teacher 🙂 hope all goes well! Cuba sounds good, my mum is hoping to go too but I’m not sure when. Fingers crossed re: your Aussie itinerary xx

      I’m definitely going to be visiting Australia …
      The only question is for how long and which locations I’ll make it to.
      It’s times like this when I wish I was a millionaire.
      : )
