As I embark on my second Yoga Teacher Training, I need an outlet to vent my frustrations with the whole process.

Once in St Louis, we unloaded Nancy, and I went for a run. People are so nice here. While running through the park, looking like a sweaty mess, people were like:
Basically, my experience in St Louis thus far can be summed up by this video, a video my friend Katherine introduced me to several years ago. It basically captures how the two of us experience the world… or something
Back to unpacking (and seeking out the best margarita in the city). Somewhere I have pans I can bake with….
