Intro

i cleaned up a lot of the stuff that shows up when you copy a tweet, and kept one picture of me from one tweet

footnotes have added “after-thought” to some tweets 😉


Please Note:

tweets normally show as most recent on top, but, to reflect a narrative, i’ve rearranged the sequence so these will read top down, earliest first

footnotes:

[1] majority of day spanned wide span of differing meditation techniques; would prove foundational for the length of the immersion

[2] lex spoke in detail of how rare it is any human being can do the myriad number of asanas possible

if we think about it, it is only a tiny few that physically shine in any endeavor, dance, football, swimming, the circus –

and, i believe we can and should enjoy being the best we each can be…

[3] i didn’t get the impression that lex thought “classically” done asanas was the be-all, but rather, like a common language for a diverse group of people, was a reference point to speak from

but then again, that was my impression of what i heard 😉

the magazine of yoga, one of my favorite sites, has had numerous articles (“orgins of yoga and tantra“) detailing the loose foundations of believing anything labeled classical doesn’t have some arbitrary work being done on the definition

the pizza effect article was good too 😉
