The Volvo is Leaving Soon…

Waaaah!  More photos of me and the MUDmobile!  Here’s what I wrote to Yoga Journal:

Hello,
One morning, before heading off to yoga my old wagon stopped working and I decided it was time for me to let it go.  After 12 years of service I called to donate it to KQED.  After I hung up, I was surprised to begin crying uncontrollably: I was flooded with feelings, I had so many good memories of road trips spent with my 3 kids who are now grown.  Later, when arrived at my class it occurred to me that my yoga is a vehicle too.  A vehicle that has taken me on an amazing journey as well.  Before the car was towed away, I celebrated with some poses.  ImageImage
