Closing Time

Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.

I found myself repeatedly quoting this line from “Closing Time” by the Goo Goo Dolls at this, the last of my yoga boot camp weekends. I refused to say “good bye” and opted instead for “see you later”.

Much like Cher, we have already planned a “last chance” reunion in November so we will soon be together again. That, plus I am apparently hosting a slumber party for 6 of the ladies after the rave review from Dallas about her stay with me. It is a very good thing that I shall soon have two bedrooms in which to host all these people.

There were tears a plenty (aside from Jan, Gayle and I, we were each others rock) Saturday night at our graduation. It was due, in part, to the actual event itself. But I think the drink also added to the abundance of salty discharge from people eyes. This was the first and only weekend where we brought a little something to celebrate with. It was also the first weekend where I saw people really let their guard down. I will never look at Ms. Roosevelt the same again after her rendition of “I Am One”. So much for the quiet, demure grandma type.

Glen had wonderful things to say about each person (yours truly included) and it was almost as each person went to get their certificate, a new wave of tears started. I truly enjoyed watching people go up and thinking back on the good times I had had with each individual. It was a time for some reflection.

Light and Flaky was born around the time my little yoga adventure started. Looking back I have to say, mission accomplished. I am now a certified (I was certifiable long ago) yoga instructor with two well attended classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Reading some of my past entries, I see the old adage “be careful what you wish for” is true. I wanted cool, fun, relaxed classes with no pretense. And I now have just that. Although I am now being challenged with cell phones, people coming to classes late and a few chit-chatters. I learned a lot this year and this is proof positive I will continue to learn.

I plan on starting some classes of my own this fall as well and am hoping for the best. And what else can I hope for when I am doing something I truly enjoy.

Congratulations! It was a pleasure watching you grow throughout the year. Ooops! I'm sorry for the rave reviews...I'm afraid we can't call it off now. Your place is tons of fun though.

Om, Shanti, Namaste
