Finally, some sense of relaxation. I was feeling bad for most of the day. It was as if my nervous system was over-stimulated. Not pleasant at all. I rested but was unable to get done what I had planned for the day. Restless, I got out of bed and researched public domain translations of ancient Buddhist texts. Early evening I went for a “run 9 minutes, walk 1 minute” at the park – for a total of 5 miles, breathing deeply the whole time. Came back home to do yoga, including the spinal twist, the plow position and the full shoulder-stand which I held for 8 minutes. Then I watched the film : ” The September Issue” which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have always felt a connection to Grace Coddington both for her work and because she also (as did I ) had a bad car wreck that left her disfigured when she was a a young woman that led to had plastic surgery for repair to an eye. Now I’m going to treat myself to a rare (for me) glass of (organic) wine and get in bed. Tomorrow is a beautiful day.
