As well as little bundles of joy. Well, Jason Kai has brought the gift of flu into the house. The sleep-disrupting kind: gummy feeling int he back of the throat, coughing, all of that fun stuff. But God, the little ankle-biter is worth it. It's just too much fun watching him begin to explore and understandthe world. but it takes me an extra hour of sleep to really get together, and it feels as if my recuperative ability is diminished. On days like this, I scale back to Heartbeat meditation (10-15 minutes), then get up, check the e-mail (and compose this note), followed by my Golden Hour. I try never to miss this. Today, I'll listen to a lecture on King Lear while doing Advanced Tibetans: Warrior Wellness, Be Breathed, Back-Bend, Hindu Pushups. Then I'll work the wonderful Silat djurus learned from Guru Plinck, done Goldilocks style (one set very hard, one set very soft, last set "just right"). In the midst of all of this is the Diamond visualization, and the maintenance of Breathing-Motion-Alignment. The "Lear" lecture will last 30 minutes, so the last 30 minutes its just me, my spirit,and my body. Can't wait.
