Happy holidays!

Kicking off a week long holiday. Tonight is the first night.

I started with a yoga class, thinking I was in for a restorative session and ending up doing demanding standing poses followed by challenging arm balances, shoulder stand variations, twists, and poses I don't know names for.

Opened up the last bottle of my Pinino 2005
This was one of those classes that made me wonder what the hell I'm doing and why I'm doing it.  On or off the mat.

When I got home I poured myself a glass of Brunello into a Lalique crystal.  Not just any crystal, but a work of art Rob bought his mom for her birthday 35+ years ago.  I find it so touching he used one of his first pay checks to get something so special for his mom.

I know, I know, it is a bit incongruous.  Yoga followed by wine.  Some might say it defeats the purpose, but I like living a life of contradictions.  It's not always a case of either/or; sometimes it's a case of  'and'.

Why not?
