This morning, after making oatmeal for my little one, I journeyed upstairs to our “art room” (I resist calling it an “office”) for some quiet yoga time. I pulled up ITunes on the IMac and clicked on my “Harper Yoga” playlist, which begins with the gloriously luscious “Morning Yearning.” It always puts me in the mood for yoga … for stretching into the day … and for giving myself the gift of this time.
During the second to last song (about 50 minutes into my routine), the phone rang. I noticed on the Caller ID that it was my husband, so I figured I should answer it, despite the interruption. I paused the Harper Yoga music and received some exciting news: We forgot to turn the clocks back last night!!! Woooo Hoooo!!! 8:45 quickly became 7:45!!! … like Magic!!!
When I clicked Play again, these words emerged from Harper’s “Waiting for You” song:
You can kill a lot of time if you really want to put your mind to it
Or leave it all behind if you never want to go through it
I’ve been hoping for you
Keep hoping for you
What else can I do
But keep hoping for you?
It caused me to think more about Time … the gift of it, how we spend it, how we waste it …
During my Savasana, which is set to “Happy Everafter in Your Eyes” when I’m listening to my Harper Yoga music, I also pondered the concept of “turning back the clock” … and how yoga does that in more ways than one.
The morning sunrise spread her wings …
Wake up every day with a dream …
