cmfount Day 26 #27DaysofGratitude. This man. He is my person, my rock, and my best friend. Although we were in the same kindergarten class, shared class space in third grade (different teachers), and he tutored me in chemistry class in high school, we didn't actually date until the end of our senior year. We've travelled side-by-side pretty much ever since. Grateful in ways words cannot express. #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #Whatiloveaboutyoga 3w

cmfount Day 25 #27DaysofGratitude. At 79 years young, my mother. Widowed 16 years now, she does it all--landscapes her garden, rides her lawn tractor, is the local library historian, sings in her church choir, hikes weekly with her hiking club, knows all her neighbors (and they love her!). I chose this picture because it shows her adventurous spirit--yes, she still skiis. She and I have had a tumultuous relationship at times. I am grateful for it all. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 3w

cmfount Day 24 #27DaysofGratitude. "You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." #maryoliver Grateful for this body of mine. I have not always been kind in thought towards it. And, yet it still loves to move, dance, and play, and taste, smell, and experience my world. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 3w

cmfount Day 23 #27DaysofGratitude. A simple thing today--an afternoon walk under the wispy clouds. Ducks were paddling in the river, a Cooper's Hawk took a momentary respite from his hunt on a tree branch, families on bicycles passing by. Grateful for finding enjoyment in the simple things. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 4w

cmfount Day 22 #27DaysofGratitude. Grateful for all the teachers I have had on my journey, both off and on my mat. Grateful for the teachers who will appear in my future. Right here, right Now, I am grateful for Jennifer Prugh. It's always an adventure in her classes. It's because of her that I completed my 200 YTT, and am close to finishing my 500. She is a beautiful example of how to travel through this life being true to your Self. May I some day shine as brightly. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 4w

cmfount Day 21 #27DaysofGratitude. The digital world. It is easy to make fun of how attached we are to our digital gadgets. Without mine though, doing things like research, reading, mapping, finding creative inspiration, staying in contact with my family and friends all around the world would not be quite the same. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 4w

cmfount Day 20 #27DaysofGratitude. Rain, sweet blessed rain. California's ongoing drought situation is serious business. Every drop of rain counts. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #raindance 4w

cmfount Day 19 #27DaysofGratitude. Feeling simple today. Chocolate holds a special place in my world. I have no fewer than six bars in various renditions, at any one time in the pantry. Thank you Mother Earth for the cocoa bean! #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #whatiloveaboutyoga #chocolate 4w

cmfount Day 18 #27DaysofGratitude. Gratitude for the moments of Grace scattered through my life. Found in the smile of a stranger when I have smiled at them, in the warm hug given or received from a loved one, in the glorious light shining through fall leaf colors. Discovered when all the pieces fall in to place perfectly. Realized when worry simply disappears. Heard in the sound of laughter, voices raised in song, and the stillness of silence. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 4w

cmfount Day 17 #27DaysofGratitude. This past April I had the incredible opportunity to visit Lumbini, Nepal, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, Lord Gautama Buddha. Seated in a semi-circle around a prayer-flag draped tree was a group of Buddhist monks. I sat with one of the monks as he chanted over my mala, and tears rolled down my face. I was moved by something I cannot explain. He then wrapped my wrist with a thread. Gratitude was with me then, and remains, for the experience and the gift of blessings I received there. The thread is still on my wrist, and I use this particular mala for most of my meditation sessions. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #yoga 1mon

cmfount Day 16 #27DaysofGratitude. Water, fresh and clear, always available to me. There are places in the world where this is not the norm. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos 1mon

cmfount Day 15 #27DaysofGratitude. Road trips, both short or long. Grateful for the ability to hit the road and see places and visit people. Traveling is also an opportunity to practice being in the here and now, a moving meditation on integrating with the traffic and people immediately around you, a dance if you will. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #moving #meditation P.S. I am the co-pilot today. 1mon

cmfount Day 14 #27DaysofGratitude. Today I am grateful for sweet surprises--like this lovely yogini dropping in on my meditation class this afternoon. She brought a smile to my face, and beautiful energy to her cushion time. Thank you so much for sharing it with me and our fellow meditators, Lorien! #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #whatiloveaboutyoga 1mon

cmfount Day 13 #27DaysofGratitude. "It is quite possible that an animal has spoken to me and that I didn't catch the remark because I wasn't paying attention." E. B. White, Charlotte's Web. I have been watching this garden spider and her web for several weeks. Each visit the web has moved slightly, the pattern always unique. Sometimes she is suspended in the very center, and other times she is not. I wonder where she goes, what she is doing. I am grateful for these quiet moments of observation and wonder that are scattered through out my days. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #spiderwebs #charlottesweb 1mon

cmfount Day 12 #27DaysofGratitude. Books. Hard bound, soft bound, dust jackets, softly warped pages after accidentally getting wet while reading in the tub. Entire worlds created in my imagination from the words on the page. My second favorite place (swimming pool being first) to spend my summers when I was growing up was at the library. Oh, the places I could roam when immersed in a story..... I have embraced the digital world, so a lot of my reading makes it to my iPad. But, nothing can replace my old school love of the hard copy. #whatiloveaboutyoga #breathefirst #breathelosgatos #books 1mon
