Yesterday, I was in my early morning yoga class and we were outside on the beautiful terrace. Each pose, looking up at the blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Even in extended poses that were rather exhausting, I found a sense of freedom and well-being. In triangle pose, I looked up at the sky and discovered a silver, mylar balloon floating high up into that blue expanse. Seeing it, made me feel light and free, exactly how I want to feel not only in yoga class, but in life.

I thought about that balloon all day.
