Treasures.

The truth is, I don’t know a thing about writing.
.
What I know to be true is when I started to dive deeper into my practice,
Each time I stepped onto my mat,
I discovered a new place within myself.
.
These discoveries began to float to the surface of me,
and thoughts and ideas and sensations
would get stuck in my throat;
my heart and head bursting with the energy of the unsaid,
unspoken.
.
To breathe air into them and bring them to life,
releasing the hold they had
on my right hip or my left ankle,
or in my busy, chattering, monkey mind,
I began to write.
.
(Words and I have always had a special kind of love affair;
from a young age I was hooked on the magic of letters forming words,
crafted into sentences, and finally, into stories.)
.
I practice yoga to shake the skeletons out of my closet,
to feel all of the grief and joy,
(and everything in between)
that this beautiful life has to offer.
.
It’s an exploration,
a treasure hunt,
to move my body and mind;
unearthing treasures,
down to my very heart and bones.
.
