Stay Healthy, Stay Safe — Yoga words with Genie Yogini

“Genie Yogini”–Photo by Lurleine, 2010  How is everyone?? 
For the past 3 days I've been catching up on sleep. Yes, it's delicious. I usually get insomniacal whenever I get stressed. However for some strange  reason I've been sleeping like a baby? So the "goodness" out of this time -- I'm rested. I've been making bread, the quick breads like Irish Soda Bread and Focaccia because the stores were out of yeast. Guess more people are staying home making bread
Also,  my husband and I are taking the dogs for walks more and making silly homestyle cell phone Yoga videos. I was writing many poems on the Corona Pandemic but now I've had enough. Going back to "stream of consciousness" and see what streams out.

One not so "good" out of this time -- I'm sick of being called the "elderly". Before this pandemic began -- I was looking forward to living my elder years -- (see my front page on my website). But now, the word elderly is associated with weakness, quarantine, and people dying. It's not the respected word that it was for me a month ago. Sometimes I find myself walking bent over and then I catch myself -- wait a minute -- don't I tell my Yoga students -- stand up and walk tall.

So let's all stand up, walk tall and stay healthy, happy and wise.

I asked wordpress how to share the latest video we made. They said to copy and paste it on the page. I hope it worked I did what they said to do its pasted above.
Please let me know if it worked for you?

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
