I have never felt more beautiful or more alive as I do after I practice. Today’s backbends brought me to tears. So many emotions rose up that I felt I couldn’t go on, but I did. I realized that if my practice were already perfect there would be nothing to look forward to. Movement is life. Standing still is death. I choose to move forward, to embrace the imperfection, to live.

God, please show me what the next steps are.

Today’s practice was dedicated to Anthony. May God smile upon you so that you may know love.
