So here I am with a lot on my mind tonight.
I was writing my little sister @haydizel (goddess) a letter tonight, she joined the marines and we haven’t seen each other since April 2nd, and I took out an old box of pictures to send her some.
Here I am looking at pictures from the past of all the people who have touched my lives, sad to say, quite of few of them have overdosed on heroin, or lost their life to another substance related mental issue.
This has caused a tremendous ripple effect on me, my family, their family and our community.... I’m processing these thoughts and here I am seeing the interconnectedness of it all once again and how here I am 13 years later hosting an Ashtanga Yoga Class to benefit @root_to_rise , a worthy cause providing resources to individuals seeking recovering from substance abuse and or mental health issues, started by an old friend of mine of over 14 years now @sandsunlove Amy B .
I practice Ashtanga to keep my life balanced and keep control of my thoughts. “Yoga Citta Vritti Nirodhah” Mastering the Mind, bc if you don’t, it’s gonna master you.
Come to @ParlorGallery this Thursday 6-9, leave your toxic shit at the door or sweat it out on your mat. “Practice and all is coming”
