I am still floating on cloud nine. The book signing event at Cafe Amano was two days ago and I can’t wipe this grin off my face. Thank you so much for being there for me! I so appreciate all your support.
I certainly didn’t write this book alone, not by a long shot. From the doctors who freely shared their experience to the EPL librarians who willingly shared their expertise, I was helped by many people. I was fortunate, as students, friends and family kept showing up and supporting me – again and again.
As many of you know, I started writing “Yoga for the Student Body” amidst great personal darkness. It seemed like I woke up one day and my life was gone. Everything I had known for two decades fell though the cosmic cracks left by the great economic tsunami of 2008. But let’s save that story for another time, because the only thing you can do when it’s all gone is keep going, right?
Besides, dreams are borne in darkness. My dream of writing the book took hold and hope filled the crevices left by loss. Yoga has taught me to keep on when the proverbial you-know-what keeps hitting the fan.
Life, writing, living, it all gets better, doesn’t it? Time heals all wounds and along the way changes your perspective. You see, you really don’t do anything alone, by any measure. When you look up you see how deep your bench is you’re grateful for your amazing support team.
Thanks for cheering me on. You made a difference. And that’s why I can’t stop smiling.
