"Yoga is a practice, not a performance."

Substitute "grief" for yoga and I think you've got a truth...

I'm practicing.
Every day.
Some days I fall down. I lose my balance and I can't focus.
I totally collapse and cry and want to stay in bed.
Some days I feel as though I've gotten it right.
I stand up and I move and I bless the moment.
Practice...every day is different, every day is a work in progress.

Always practicing...always working.

I'm grateful when I think of Sam and I'm led to a warm sweet place...instead of intense pain and sadness. It's brief sometimes, but I know it's there.

I'm practicing to get there.


  1. Here's to warm, sweet places--and finding them more and more often.

  2. Holding you and Sam and your whole beautiful family in my heart.

    Shabbat shalom. Wishing you wholeness and peace.

  3. Shabbat Shalom. I will be thinking of you and Sammy along with Michael and the kids. May you find peace.

  4. The new samyoga. Sounds like a real word, just takes a little practice.

  5. wishing you strenghth. you have the most precious memories of sammy. thank you for sharing the pics.
