Friday. Hot flow. Not the greatest class…Marlee said it well ‘all the parts were there but the order was all wrong’. Oh well.

I also thought this might put some discipline in to my day and be a fun way to express my thoughts and share some pictures that may or may not have anything directly to do with yoga.
