Well, while the big snow storm – approx 28 inches – forced us to cancel classes, this fellow made it out in the aftermath of the storm to do a pose or two.
This is actually the road but I was not too worried about cars coming from either direction. My car was basically immobile and so were most vehicles on this day.
As you can see I was going nowhere fast. My car is at the end of the driveway with the front end facing the “road”. I would have needed a snowmobile or reindeer to get anywhere.
Amidst all this purity and serenity you would have thought a sublime yoga teacher like myself would have achieved perfect peace, i.e. the grand samadhi.
But it was not meant to be…
After hanging around outside for 20 min or so, I went back in only to realize an hour later that I could not find my keys – i.e. a key ring that has keys to all the major and minor halls, studios, and community centers in the area. I was at a loss as to whether I brought them out with me or not. I searched my messy room – nope not there.
The panic began to mount…
I put all my clothes back on and ran back out into the snow. One neighbor had already “gotten out” with his 4×4 and if my keys were out there they had to be found before the snow got disturbed.
I went to my handstand spot. I did not see anything. I got down on my hands and knees and started to scrounge around – even dig. I was losing hope wondering how I would ever find them – as I got up off my knees I saw the tip of a metal piece out of the corner of my eye. I stuck my hand down and alas my whole key chain was there! Never happier…
Skipped all the way back into the house and vowed never again to do handstands with unzipped pockets, especially when mother earth is blanketed with snow ensuring not a sound could be heard!
