That's pretty impressive, they don't usually teach you how to do that until advanced yoga.

Quite the opposite actually......for the male instructor, it's somewhat akin to heading out with other people's babies and/or cute puppies!! HUGELY in demand, sought after and yet still in VERY limited supply :-)

In the yogic world, that would, of course, be 'second chakra' energy.... rarely openly spoken of or acknowledged, let alone embraced in either general parlance and conduct OR indeed that of the yogic world, unless one is trained in the tantric tradition, as am I, and then, well.... perhaps you might ask Atakdog more about that :-) Whether he will deign to answer, I know not :-)

I wonder how quickly a 40+ year old completely inflexible man can become a limber, twist-himself-into-a-pretzel tantric superstar.

I like being in demand

Y'all starting to see a bit of what's going on here?

But the most amazing thing is that a lot of that, and a lot of the rest of it, I didn't know when we fell for each other, even as she didn't know a lot of the things that she finds attractive about me. Every day we discover new ways in which were right for each other.


/sappiness ... for now

Devi seemed slightly annoyed (in an amused way) this morning when I held crow and side crow, this being our fourth session:







(I think my toes are supposed to be pointed in that last one.)

Re: The well: atakdog

To lighten the mood a bit, I have some suggestions for winning over teenagers:

1- Rearrange her room, and when she sees it, yell "Surprise!!"

2- Make her multiple playlists consisting primarily of songs produced before she was born.

3- Borrow her clothes and wear them around the house, show her how much you like her style.

4- Dance for her, in front of her, at her. Teens love this.

5- Friend her on facebook and comment on all her posts. Also friend her friends and start tagging them in photos.

6- Learn all the cool kid slang they have today and use it in conversation with her. Also works with text shorthand.

That will probably give you a good head start, I'll add more if I think of them.


And on a serious note, good luck, I hope you and Devi are able to reach a balance and be happy together. You both seem like extraordinary and wonderful human beings, I wish you guys the best.

I've reported the recent posts and asked for today's stuff to be deleted, which is sad because of the thoughtful responses. And crossnerd's suggestions

But it really does have to go.

I'll be back when I have stuff to say that's more appropriate for a well.

Thanks, y'all.
