Gymnastics, The Pea | Posted by Jannie on 13 May 2014 @ 2:01 PM
I had a fleeting vision
that maybe it’s not too
late for ME to learn
to swing ’round & ’round
like that, until… I recalled
those two times a few
years ago I had to ride
that thing… (thought I
would die both times.)
Nope. I’ll leave
all that whirling
to the Pea,
as in “Sweet Pea,”
Jr. Olympian, Level 7.
oxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo to all.
P.S. I have not been out in blogland for a while, but I DO have blog-hopping penciled in for two whole hours on Thursday, May 15th, whooohooo!!!!

Thanks, Ryan, if you ever read this.
we return to
The Yoga Pyramid
when Texan frogs
are about to light
are doing morning
sit-ups in bed.
some of us
we have all
“how to build
beings who know
love is always
the way to go.”
55 words for “Mama Z’s” poetry blog. (Please scroll to her Monday April 21st post.)
I really really like the photos at her “Zen of Motherhood” blog too! Check them out!!
Now back to Texas…
In the log cabin before we head down the path to the Om ceremony.
Some of us meet for the first time.
That’s Walter Suhr closest to the blue cup.

Chillin’ on the cabin’s back deck later.
And a seventh Big Photo because I adore sevens.

~~ Shay Fireblossom over at Word Garden is emceeing the Flash Fiction 55 this week, whoohoo!!
And since I wrote that poem today and took that photo today, I guess that ties them together fine.
Y’all take care now!
If you find
a book, or
as a child,
please read it
and smile, knowing
that long ago
we got to
play 55, a game
Could it be true — G-Man’s final 55 after 7 years?!?
AWESOME run, dude!!! Thanks for inviting so many and keeping the party rocking.
We all love you, Galen! And glad you’ll still be keeping up your blog.
EDIT on April 3rd : Shay Fireblossom of Wordgarden and The Zen Of Motherhood (a.k.a Mama Zen) will be taking over the 55 hosting, with Shay starting off the festivities soon. I shall edit-in the date and time of her hosting inauguration here very soon.

Beauty, Friends, Photography | Posted by Jannie on 22 March 2014 @ 11:38 AM
Enjoyed a few glorious days with friends who are nearing completion of their all-cedar yoga pyramid.
25 squares comprise the newly-finished floor, with the center one being extra-special.
Here I am in my lucky blue hat…
Once the basement cave is finished, guests will remove their shoes there, wash their feet in a stream pumped from one of the koi ponds, and ascend to the sanctuary.
Quite the place!
(That scaffolding will be removed eventually.)
Here’s a view of the pyramid from a mile or 2 away…
I managed to get a lucky (because my glasses were in the truck) zoom shot of it…
Near the pyramid is their log cabin home,
which often doubles as a hair salon,
and pillow fight parlor.
A log cabin with WiFi and all the modern creature comforts — not bad!
Wood is gathered for the fireplace.
Chickens are raised.
One hen is actually named Kelly and one is named Jannie! And Kelly just laid her first egg!!
Veggies are planted.
And the bread — OMG, the bread!!
The lady of the cabin bakes it from her own recipe.
Her pancakes are from scratch, of course!
And her soup from those organic chickens she raises.
Even Jannie, the hen will end up a feast one day.
(Hey, it’s a farm.)
A farm with a hot tub on the sunset side of the house.
From that deck you can see the stretch of road where I took the long-distance pyramid shots from!
That was my wine!
3 parting tidbits about our stay in the hill country…
I fell in love with that 8″ tall cactus,
and am ever more in wonderment that the Universe could grace me with such an incredibly wonderful friend, who for some strange reason…. seems to like me too.
What’d I ever do to deserve so much awesome??!
~~ Posted by Jannie, who hopes to see you at the pyramid one day.
