sans pink cast

tonight after school beau and i headed to crave dc's book launch fete where tranquil space has a featured layout. woo-hoo. above are photos of moi holding a beautiful cupcake pre-consumption and hugging a recent teacher training level 1 graduate who's up to great things including a yoga retreat for women of color in dc.

the bottom 2 photos show the pink cast the day i got it and my hand immediately after the cast was sawed (yes, sawed!) off on monday. wowza, looks skeletal and that metal pin was slowly pulled out while i looked away. yikes! i begged for valium, but they promised me it wasn't that bad. while the skeletal look is gone, my hand is still a bit of a mess. my "workout" includes trying to crumple or fold paper with my left hand and touching my thumb and ring finger together. i think back on my rockin' yoga practice a year ago and have to laugh that this is now my practice. . .

tomorrow will be tranquility du jour's 200th podcast episode. look for it later in the evening coming to an iPod/computer near you. merci beaucoup for listening and sharing life with me for 6 years (blog)/5 years (podcast)! *what* a journey. so much is yet to unfold.

sending you hand healing wishes, and soooo happy that podcast 200 is coming soon. i remember listening to the very first "hip tranquil chick" podcast back in 2005? and thinking it was right up my street.

Great seeing you at the CRAVE DC Book Launch too! There was so much going on and so many fabulous women to meet. Thanks for sharing about the Yoga Retreat for Women of Color. It's going to be an awesome event!
