“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail. “RW Emerson

An almost full moon rising over icy Watson Lake.

Winter and the changes it brings can be quite serene.  It was a beautiful end to the day with a chill in the air and really, next to no one here on the day I shot this.  It’s kind of nice to have the place pretty much to one’s self! 

Speaking of rising, I have been doing hot yoga as of late and I really enjoy it.  Heating the room up to 90 plus degrees not only relaxes your muscles but I believe it also relaxes your mind.  I tried yin yoga for the first time today and have to say it kicked my butt.  You hold more passive poses for 5 minutes and while it seems like it should be a piece of cake, it most definitely challenges your body.  Right now my muscles are pretty sore..much sorer than when I do traditional yoga.  So, I am now off to a hot bath to help allay the effects of my hot yoga,  that is if I can rise off the couch. 😉
