I overdid it a bit at yoga today – quite an experience.

Our teacher started us out with a meditation – listen to the sounds right around you, listen to the sounds father away…

First I listened to the sounds from the work-out room on the other side of the glass doors of the yoga room. Then I figured I could hear the cars on the street and – zooooom – I was listening to an ambulance on the other side of the globe and a baby crying a million miles away and…

At first I had a huge smile on my face. This was funny. I am sure that this was not what the teacher had intended. How marvelous to be able to reach so far so fast and encompass the whole globe. But then I started taking in the impressions from the whole globe. Whoa! Cut!!

I pulled back as fast as I could with tears starting in my eyes. I even opened my eyes to get fully back to where I was and hugged my knees for a bit. After that, I listened only to the sounds of my own body. I was not going out there again!
