"Without space, creation cannot take place. When you purchase a house, you purchase the space, which is surrounded by the walls. The more space, the more valuable the house. You cannot think anything if you have no space within your mind. You cannot welcome any guest in your house if you have no space within your house. You cannot receive any thought from outside if you have no space within your mind." -Sri Brahmananda Sarasvati βœ¨πŸ“ΏπŸ”₯
Creating new space by breathing, by moving, by burning sage, by listening. Thank you, Blossom Yoga. πŸ™πŸΌ

Chinstand!! 😱Keep watching for a nice yoga blooper πŸ™ˆ I've been afraid of this pose since I hurt my neck a couple years ago, but I tried it for the first time today 😊 (I did it, @courtlong10!) Now I gotta work on my psoas flexibility and hamstring strength πŸ’ͺ🏼 Always a work in progress.

I think I need more plants. πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸƒπŸ’š The tablecloth and tulip watercolor are from my Oma, who is no longer with us. The table is an old sewing machine.

People say, "if I just quit sugar, I would be my best self," or, "when I make more money, I will be my best self," but your best self is always available, always present inside you. It is that quiet, unshakeable voice of calm confidence. It is the opposite of the compulsive to-do list always running through your brain, the obsessive repetition of your past missteps and failings, the voice of judgment. It is your inner wisdom. It knows you will overcome and and achieve. It trusts. Listen to it. Listen to your best self. May this be a practice of listening. βœ¨πŸ™πŸΌπŸ•―

Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mom, @miwi62. I like to think that, since I inherited none of your physical characteristics (thanks, Dad!), I instead carry on some of your grace, bravery, kindness, generosity, and general loveliness. πŸ’–

File under cool research: here's a circa 1890 photo of Wyoming cowboys showing off a gray wolf they lassoed, back when the state of Wyoming was paying bounty hunters $2 per dead wolf (about $50 today). πŸΊπŸ€ πŸŽπŸ“·
