b a l a n c e

2 barns

i love
symmetry.

when i saw
these barns
i made
grub
stop the car
and
i tromped
through poison ivy
to take
this photo.

from grub's perspective
{grub's perspective}

it makes
me happy.
it's
so balanced.

it
reminds
me of drives
in the country
with grub.
he will
drive me
back down
the
road
just because
i wanted
to take a photo.

he's
pretty awesome
that way.

just grub

. . .

august
was
bad for me.
really bad.
i needed
to find
something
to balance me
again.

i
began
to go to
yoga
again.
i had forgotten
that it's
what
my body and soul
seem to need.
why do i always
forget that
when i get
wrapped up in
the
busyness
of life?

this weekend
i went to
morning yoga
each day
then sat outside
and
had breakfast
with a friend.
the weather in dc
in september is
pretty perfect.
warm, breezy,
and the sun
washes everything
in gold.
yoga.
friends.
sun.
that brings
me
back
in balance.
it gives me
the strength
i need to make
it through
this year.

i think
september
might be
my new favorite month.

i do hope september is better for you. and yoga does it for me too, but i often get wrapped up in life and forget to practice. forget that practice ought to come first, not last. i'm pretty certain that i need that practice right now in my life.

every time i go to yoga i have that realization... i needed it more than i realized. i need to motivate to just do it on my own until i find a new class.
hoping that september brings you very very good things and the balance you are seeking... xox

I've always wanted to learn yoga! I'm sure I will someday. It's great to have someone to drive you back to the place where you want to take a picture. I think every photographer should have someone like that in their lives.
Happy September (smiles)

Beautiful image and I'm inspired by your bringing balance back into your life. I've been back from my travel for a week now and it is time to return to yoga. I know I'll be happy when I do. Thank you for the reminder.
