What was I thinking?
When in the middle of a yoga pose
The cat continually meows in my face to get my attention
My husband blasts his new radio from the garage as I am trying to meditate
The clock ticks away along with the timer set for ten minutes as I try to concentrate on my breathing
All when I am used to practicing yoga in a chair instead of on the floor or getting on the floor at all because I cannot get back up
Still, I will work at one yoga pose a day until it becomes a habit
And the cat and my husband adjust to my new yoga space
Soon to be reserved at the neighborhood gym
Or at one of Ellen’s many yoga classes in her studio.
