A Letter

Dearest Readers,

Forgive me.

Forgive me for using this space as my own personal mirror and allowing my writing to devolve into little more than catharsis and journalistic blather.

Forgive me for the tired metaphors of wind and sea.

Forgive me for letting the Asana of the Week fall to the wayside.  I learn as much writing those posts as any of you might reading them, and it was self-serving on my part to sacrifice the asanas before something less pragmatic and informative.

On that same note, forgive me for insisting that the Asana of the Week would return with regularity and then failing to bring it back.

Forgive me for the advertisement that was in the sidebar for a stretch some months ago.  I don't know if any of you noticed it, but it's gone now and I'm sorry.

Forgive me for not reading your blogs, commenting, or sharing much of interest with you lately.

Forgive me for my occasional harshness and authoritative ranting.  I wish not to be self-righteous.

To my Ashtanga students, few though you may be:  Forgive me for stating my intention to keep my Monday night class -- my only Ashtanga class -- and then giving it away.  The commute was too much.  I am but a poor student with a big-wheeled SUV.

And, finally, forgive me for this post, for which I am truly sorry.


With love,

Megan

  1. Love that your still blogging away Megan, still brave and candid enough to work stuff out here, sharing the process rather than worrying too much about how your perceived, your professional image and/or hiding behind over stylised and over edited posts. We work out asana but also work out our relationship to our practice and just as our posture is a little (or a lot) untidy sometimes so is the relationship with the practice and with ourselves . Asana exposes us but so to does the encounter with the practice, it's self-study and all the connotations that contains. Website are supposed to be polished, blogging is about keeping it real....isn't it x
