I wanted to pop in today for a quickie recommendation: Chrissy’s bittersweet piece on her Texas home/yoga studio, Morning Glory. I myself am in a bit of a home rediscovering mode after being on the road: five different states in six weeks. It is joy and sadness to have a home that is far, far from where you live now. I’ve always loved reading Chrissy’s pieces on yoga (this one is still a favorite), and “Om Is Where the Heart Is” is another reminder of how home is both a place and a feeling, a bond and a bridge. Yoga, too, has a physical dimension and something more ineffable yet just as real: the feeling inside of coming back to yoga.
I too am coming back to yoga, finally unfurling my mat Monday night after weeks away from it. It’s nice to begin reconnecting to all the things I left behind in my summer travels: quiet mornings alone, yoga before bed, buying groceries and new basil plants without counting the days until my next departure. I wouldn’t trade my travels this summer for anything—it was an amazing experience, being able to live so intentionally and so bound by relationships—but I’m happy to be home again. Or at least in the space that is home for now, nesting softly and happily.
