I drove ALOT today. First, I drove all the way to Chinatown (with K in the passenger seat) to meet Sarah for yoga. I also drove around Kailua for our errands in the afternoon. It felt good except for slamming on the brakes at a yellow light and then driving on the wrong side of the road in Chinatown. While on the winding Pali Highway I just kept reminding myself of what Annie told me:
- if she can do it I definitely can
- drive 35 miles an hour, or as slow as I like (who cares, let them pass!)
There was a little yellow VW bug on the road basically riding on it’s brakes. I stayed behind it pretty much the whole way into town. I smiled and told K that I liked her style and I was perfectly content to follow her. As we passed the car closer to town, K glanced at the driver and I said ‘what’s that lady look like?’ He burst out laughing and said she’s an old lady. I’m perfectly happy to be in the driver category of slower-than-an-old-lady. I think a few more times with K and I can probably drive into town alone. Parking is a totally different story.
We were supposed to take class with Murti today but we had a great substitute. Here’s a brief review of our yoga teachers so far:
- Murti- awesome
- Jai Ma- awesome fantastic
- Brigitte- very good; wonderful intention
I think we’ve sampled everyone at Open Space except for 2 or 3 teachers. The three above are people I would go back to again and again. Brigitte also teaches at a place just two miles from our home called Aloha Yoga Kula. I’m looking forward to trying their teachers after our new student discount expires at Open Space.
Here is the cutest padded envelope I’ve ever seen from Kailua’s Post Office:
