In Case You Missed It Edition, Volume 18

{via}

Each week I’ll give you links to posts that made me laugh, cry, think or at least raise an eyebrow. Please click the links and check out the posts. You may find something that rocks your world too.

Leave me some feedback in the form of comments below on what you liked, what you hated and what you’d like to see more of. I’m here to help you find the best of what is online.

My Best Of…

Leave out Savasana and replace it with a sitting meditation?!?!? I have to admit I’m ready to start a revolution over the very thought! Madeleine brings it back to what it is all about – the letting go and preparation for the final rest in her post called You’re Dying! Now Try to Relax.

{Funny sidenote: once in a yoga class I was teaching, I referred to Corpse pose as “practicing for death” and the room went really, really quiet for a minute before everyone gave into fits of nervous giggles.}

In case you haven’t heard, we’re adopting from Thailand. We spent a month there in 2005 and I fell head over heals in love with Asian elephants: The freckles! The chubby cheeks! The ears shaped like India! Sarah at Yes and Yes just spent time in an elephant rescue camp in Chiang Mai – check out these enviable photos.

Just so we’re clear, I will be going there someday.

This next post has so much to love, I’m not even sure where to start. Becky (from The New Perfect) wrote about how her 9 year old daughter just got her first journalism job carrying the profession into the fourth generation in their family. What an accomplishment!

It also reminded me of New Moon, a girls’ magazine and online space, written by and for girls. L-O-V-E!

Speaking of young people publishing…. my students have been blogging up a storm and are super excited when people leave comments on their posts. If you are so inclined, feel free to stop by and say hi.

Who likes read alouds???? I do! World Read Aloud Day is March 9th. Go sign up and help celebrate the written word with those you love.

Have you met Mrs. Mimi yet? We share some opinions and I love her so much I sent her a fan letter. For reals.

+++++

Curvy Yogis UPDATE! I’m still working out the details of a photo shoot for our Sacramento yogis – I’m lining up a photographer and a location. I’ll post details when I have them.

For now, stop on by YogaDork for up to the minute details on Curvy Yoga’s campaign for real sized bodies to be represented in the pages of Yoga Journal.

+++++

We’re still looking for ideas for San Francisco – so please leave a comment about your favorite thing to do, place to stay, and food not to miss in San Francisco.

  1. For San Francisco info., I would check out the No Onions Extra Pickles blog. I like her fresh, fun approach, and she has some good insights on there.
    I had actually been planning to do something similar, maybe renting a house on/naer the water and spending several days exploring the city. I hope you guys have a fantastic time!

  2. Tami, I really wish we lived closer b/c I want to make you my new weekly coffee buddy. New Moon? Writing projects by young people? I love, love, love all of this! Your students must think you’re the coolest thing since sliced bread (or whatever is way cooler and more culturally relevant to third graders today). :)
