I’ve been going to Yoga on a regular basis out here. I have decided that it keeps me from going crazy, given my busy 2-job work schedule. Tonight’s theme was turtles, because my instructor Tiffany had been thinking about them all week. She brought up the point that Turtles are never really away from home because they bring their home with them. If you are always at home, you should always feel safe. Turtles are pretty lucky.
Unlike a turtle, we have to go out of our homes, and that can be scary. I had a really bad day yesterday, between work, hot/sweaty/gross yoga and my incident on the way home from work, all I wanted to do was go HOME, take a shower and go to bed. I wanted to feel safe from everything that had come my way during the day and finally be home. Funny thing is, the home I wanted to go to was my home out here.
I must have brought and know enough home to feel safe even in an new, unfamiliar home. Thanks to all those Minnesotans and Utahns who make home a safe place for this turtle.
