I just got back from another wonderful weekend yoga retreat. I was there as the assistant, which means that I did have some work to do, but mostly I was free to savour the yoga classes, the wonderful kirtan (devotional chanting), the delicious ayurvedic vegan meals, and the bush (i.e. forest).
I so badly needed a weekend away from the city. In fact, when I uploaded my photos to my computer I noticed that most of the photos I took were of nature, great and small. And even though it was cold, I spent a lot of time curled up on the couches outside by the fire, drinking tea and reading my book. Sometimes you just need to get outside, know what I mean?
