savoring a sunny saturday afternoon and musing from my comfy pillow-filled bed.

slowly settling into a new routine that includes 20 hours a week of school (on campus + internship) and my return to teaching after a 4-month hiatus. feeling full of gratitude and have a block of time before an evening meeting so here i am. musing on my week in review that included polariods, parties, and, always, oodles of pink.

week in review:
– started hour-long annual check-ins with tranquil space’s talented teaching team
– matinee date with beau to see the tillman story – highly recommend!
– found the cutest free polaroid picture program – “snaps” photo with sound of polaroid and slowly develops on your screen
– hosted a fun fete last night for our arlington cOMmunity
– rode my pink bike all over town. tricky with a cast but perfect for commuting to my internship at n street village
– chatted with facilitator for next weekend’s annual tranquil space team retreat
– taught chair yoga to my beloved seniors at sunrise assisted living
– class for 4 hours, internship 16 hours
– got immunized in prep for trip to india: typhoid, hep b, tetanus, polio (ouch!)
– paid oodles of bills for businesses (electricity, gas, contractor, internet, printing, and more)
– party supply run
– oodles of allergy pills – anyone else suffering? wowza, ragweed!
– picked up some fun sparkly tights, new pink knit hat, and sparkly scarf. j’adore the blending of pink, noir, and silver = perfection
– meditated with sharon salzberg on monday night.
– brunch with beau at kramer’s
– tickets to vegas to see girlfriend over halloween plus tour zappos
– shipped TranquiliT and approved final layout of new website: launches oct. 1

must confess, this internship is helping me find balance. adding 16 hours to my schedule of work above and beyond what’s on my plate has been insightful on many levels. i no longer see everything as urgent. i am scheduling more self-care and canceling events that feel beyond my capacity at the mOMent. i am observing other professionals at work (first time in 10 years).

this is sure to be an amazing learning opportunity on so. many. levels.
