Nineteen

A Year of Yoga: January 19, 2014

Pose: Standing Balanced Twist

Location: Roof of my garage. That is my house behind me. I always said if we were ever able to purchase this house, I would turn the roof of the garage into a kick ass balcony escape/retreat sort of thing. I have a thing for heights. I love them. I love climbing mountains, trees, ladders, etc. Something about being on a rooftop feels magical; Mary Poppins, Santa Claus, Peter Pan. Leaving the ground feels like leaving reality and the mundane behind for a bit. But when we were given the opportunity to buy, the stars just didn’t line up. Now we are moving and it will remain a fantasy. I’m not sad. In fact I’m excited to move forward and have new dreams about rooftops in Seville, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, and who knows where else. But this rooftop will always have a special place in my heart as a “what might have been”.
