sleepy but happy

my journey to kripalu on sunday was lovely. very smooth despite the rain and i loved singing along with tori amos, eminem, and donna delory at the top of my lungs for 7 full hours. we have 19 lovely ladies from the states and canada ranging in age from 20s to 60s joining the hip tranquil chick happenings this week - a beautiful group.

despite sleeping 8 hours, i cannot get enough sleep. my poor little eyes are so tired. i feel like i could crawl into bed at 5pm and sleep for days. this is continuing from last week. i'm hopeful that this will pass as i don't like running on empty. no time for that nonsense! although i had called this upcoming sunday a bed day, i found a fabulous class at g street fabrics on restyling sweaters. basically taking old sweaters or tees and turning them into something new. example, arms of a sweater into arm or leg warmers. i'm super-excited and decided i HAD to go, despite declaring bed day. ah, another bed day awaits in november - my next declared bed day!

off to bed as i hope to get up early and go for a walk on this beautiful property. while i've been typing and handling e-mails tonight, the moon is right outside my window with gorgeous clouds passing in front of it. so lovely! it's amazing what beauty surrounds us if only we take the time to notice it.

Looking at the moon always makes me pause.... Send pictures of Kripalu if you can. So we can live vicariously....

I hope to join you on one of those retreats someday. When the kids are a little older.... :)

Isn't Kripalu great? I was so fortunate to stay there for 6 weeks, 6 years ago to sort out what I wanted to do next with my life. Just the most pleasant place and I'm really looking forward to going back. I understand there have been several additions and renovations.

the moon... la luna. she is marvie to look at. i saw her last night and was in awe. enjoy kripalu and the g street class. i know it will inspire you. may you get some much needed sleep. i have been feeling the same way. what helps me is spraying vanilla in my bedroom and lighting an incense stick i got from tranquil spa in the kitchen. it all helps me relax. so does a little crown and third eye chakra reiki. sending you peaceful vibes, ananda

Dear Kimberly,

I worry about you! You are sounding absolutely frazzled. Take some time out to recharge yourself. We all won't mind. We promise.

Lotsa love, the Hip Tranquil Tomboy from Alice Springs (outback Australia).
