my room smelling of jasmine rice. how my half-accented friend pronounces "curry." sharing a simple post-yoga dinner with her, sitting on floor.
returning to yoga class. I went for a couple months last spring and it was great, but I let it drop off my priorities. I shan't again. it's free for students here. "Take care of the body and the mind will follow."
writing letters in the evenings.
how much I have improved my study habits in the past two years.
turning the heater on first thing in the morning.
eating mindfully. without distractions, and insisting on distinguishing emotional hunger from physical hunger.
getting accustomed to reading literary German again.
Skyping. (about 23x better than phone calls).
earlier bedtimes and fewer long naps.
cucumber gel face mask, and the smell of cucumber anything. sharp, fresh, faintly sweet. rain-like.
that it is possible to understand a reading assignment without reading every word. (thank goodness.)
my new gratitude journal. Christmas gift from Liv. gorgeous. new favorite bedtime ritual. I'll take pictures for you.
many plans for Making Things once I return home to my stuff and have time again.
