How was your Easter? Like most folks, ours was quiet. Our youngest son was here for dinner and we watched Stepbrothers (always good for laughs). That morning we streamed our church service. The Easter Bunny, his helpers, and some firefighter friends with their truck drove through our neighborhood Saturday throwing out candy. It was a beautiful day and fun to see the excited kids standing at the end of their driveways waving – adults, too.
A local author friend surprised me and ran this ad in our newspaper yesterday. What a generous thing to do! Many people here are probably unaware Bowling Green is home to several authors – one of those names was even new to me. It may or may not sell books, but who knows what might come from it down the road when life is closer to normal again.
Want to relieve some stress and quiet your mind? I think that’s an opporunity we’d all jump at right now. Try yoga. I’ve been practicing for around 20 years. With the class schedule at my gym occasionally inconsistent, I had to look for alternatives. A few years ago, I stumbled across Yoga with Adriene on YouTube. She offers tons of videos ranging from beginner to advanced lasting from ten minutes to an hour, with many of them focusing on specific areas of the body. Last week when I woke, my neck felt like it had been twisted in inhuman ways. I did Adriene’s Yoga for Neck and Shoulder Relief and it helped – the next day, the pain was completely gone. If you regularly practice yoga and miss your class or have been thinking about trying it, here’s your chance – and you can practice in the privacy of your own home. Adriene’s got a great sense of humor, and her dog, Benji, usually sits in (or lays in) on the classes.
Take care and stay healthy!
