Chakra Khan

I guess it’s been eleven days since I’ve written! Impressive. I’ve been distracted by work and running and randomly falling asleep (because I cannot restock my sleep stores, no matter how hard I try). There are books that I’ve intended to read as I settle into bed, but there’s this really cute cat who insists upon intensely snuggling with me, which usually involves a paw extended on my upper arm or a kitty cheek resting upon my shoulder. I am powerless!

The interesting thing about this break in writing is that I’ve actually wanted to write. I stopped journaling when I left Ohio, after diligently journaling the previous year, and I don’t have my piano as a creative outlet anymore. I don’t have a machine shop from which to “borrow” copper scraps so that I can continue lampworking (though I did buy a fire extinguisher!). I haven’t been yoga-ing…but I will be now.

You know you’re in Oregon when your therapist recommends that you work on your chakras. This is quite a change from my Luther-loving therapist last year! I know that I feel better after doing hip-opening poses, I’m just terrible at motivating myself to have a home practice. Just like I’m terrible at motivating myself to work on my core. I know it’s good for me and I’ll feel better in the long run…but no. I think I need a star chart to motivate myself. Stickers are excellent motivational tools.

But back to chakras. Since my imagination died when I took engineering coursework, I’m having a really difficult time letting myself go into hippie woo-woo territory. Maybe I can integrate stickers into this somehow…

On a related note, is it just me, or do other people start singing “I Feel for You” by Chaka Khan whenever they hear someone mention chakras?

It’s probably just me.

    i literally laughed out loud when i read the phrase “hippie woo-woo”. then i had to go google chakras. i love west coast hippie-ness! however, most people i know living in vermont are the same way! 🙂

    Ha! Now you know why I narrowed my choices down to Oregon or Vermont. 🙂
