It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve blogged with any regularity that I’m not sure how to get back on this horse gracefully. Do I just launch myself into the next thing without explaining my absence? (Yup, pretty much.) Do I tell you all how much I’ve missed you guys? (I have!) Can I skip this awkward part and just get back to doing my thing online and hope you won’t hold my absence against me? (Please?)
How about a kitty pic? Here’s Cairo sleeping on Mr. B’s lap, surrounded by the latest additions to my stuffie menagerie (clockwise from the top): bookworm, sleeping sickness, mad cow and toxic mold (which is my favourite). Head over to ThinkGeek to check out their entire giant microbes collection.
In other news, February is no-TV month in my household (for the second year in a row), which seemed like a great time to also do the 28-Day Meditation Challenge, based on the book Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation – A 28-Day Program by Sharon Salzberg (which, as you may remember, I bought at Kripalu). When I got back from my Kripalu retreat, I fully intended to start meditating every day, but that didn’t happen. However, as Sharon Salzberg says, “with every breath, we can begin again,” which is exactly what I’m choosing to do this month—with both blogging and meditating.
I’ll keep you posted on how I’m doing with the meditation challenge in weekly updates on Wednesdays, which means that, as of next week, my “similar covers” posts will go live on Thursdays instead.
So now that I’m back, let me know what I’ve missed! Oh and Happy Imbolc!
