I have reviewed here on countless posts how I enjoy starting my day with yoga, and how I haven’t done it in so long because of countless excuses. I also no longer do yoga at night because I don’t pull away from other things before I’m too tired.
The past few days, I’ve been saying I will get my music player- as opposed to music on my smartphone- charged and that will help. Because I will no longer be tempted to do social media of all I have is music. It’s the music I feel the most comfortable meditating to and doing yoga with. Once I hit post, I’m going to dig it out and charge it up.
Tonight, in response to the challenge, I decided to go big or go home. Take the next 20+ days of doing a pose daily and see some improvements.

My dancer pose felt more like a hamstring stretch. My knee is more bent and my hips are not that open. But tonight was only night one.
Today Witchlette and I visited the Buddhist temple in Raleigh.
We walked around the book store within and spoke with the site manager.
We went into the gompa, which was beautiful with brightly colored tapestry on every wall. The altar was also bright and colorful and very lovely. My chakras were on overdrive, so I sat on a pillow and meditated until they were balanced with the intense amount of energy present. It was a lovely energy, but still intense. Witchlette also sat to meditate for a bit and was very happy to be able to do so.
Then, we went to the garden.
Witchlette would like to make a set of prayer flags for her room to hang over her window.

It was a lovely visit, but not some place Witchlette has said she would like to go regularly. I told her if she does, we will. For now, she just wants prayer flags to help her meditate in her own space.
I don’t know your names
I don’t know your stories
I feel the call to know you
But know not what to say
Journeying through eons past
Without a guide
Without a map
Back beyond years of conversion
To my true history
