I have kept this site strictly business for the most part… and I intend to keep it that way… however, I am integrating what I do into who I am more and more… and I have started sharing that with others… testing the water… seeing if people roll their eyes and make comments about how I lived in the forest for too long… well they don’t. In fact I see that it inspires other people to think about what it is that they do and how they live… so in hopes that this may inspire you… here goes…
Over a year ago I started to practice yoga and it changed my life. In the last few months I have truly gone through a metamorphosis… creativity flows through me constantly, to the point of having hot hands that gain more heat as I work. After a busy bridal season I needed to work on a project that was just for me… I started a peacock wig. I kept it to myself and was sheepish about sharing it with others… it was a bit eccentric, and I don’t need to be appear any more eccentric than I already do… however, people gave me such positive feedback and encouragement that I made another one… a swan… and now I realize that I won’t live long enough to create all of the ideas that swirl around in my brain.
Originally I was working seated in a western chair which impeded me greatly, I had to take a lot of breaks to keep my shoulder and back from aching… while discussing this issue with my yoga instructor I had the epiphany that I needed to integrate yoga into my work. I started to work while sitting on a free chair and this allowed me to be dynamic while sitting instead of slowly crumpling up my spine and blocking my creative energy flow. I am now working with a local craftsman to make a frame to hold the wigs while I felt so that I can achieve complete flow while working. Is it work or yoga… well by definition yoga means union… and that is exactly what it is… the union between my body and my brain and my spirit… work as meditation. Bliss!
Much gratitude for finding my flow… may you find yours.
