Guinness World Records
WooHooo! I think I’m going to have a gathering of sorts at the studio sometime in September. Maybe a potluck party? You will all be invited, of course.
For now, I’m in Maine on a little beach retreat with Craig and my parents. It’s lovely to wake up near the sea and do yoga outside. I am trying to practice twice daily– a hour before breakfast and an hour before dinner. It’s a good routine, but I’m allowing myself a little flexibility to do whatever I feel like. After so much busyness in the last four months, it is also great to spend time with people I love. I am enjoying being immersing myself in vacation mode, which involves plenty of reading, beach combing and food.
(The book I’m reading right now is “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. I highly recommend it. Very inspiring.)
I still want to meet my fundraising objective of $10,800 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation by Dec. 1. We’re 22% of the way there. Anything you can contribute to this great cause is really appreciated. Please spread the word. Also, if you have any ideas for how I can continue fundraising, please let me know.
