rue-madame's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are always getting ready to live, and never living

Iíve been working on my taxes the last couple of days. It has completely depressed me.

The good news is that the sooner I get through this pile oí papers, the sooner I can fill out my forms and send them off to my accountant. I want to be able to do that next week.

Iím doing yoga to combat the blues and itís helping. When you canít look at another Quicken database with numbers in red, and lots of minus signs, I recommend a good hour and a half of strenuous yoga. It takes your mind off your worries, and makes you feel rejuvenated.

I got a new mat for Christmas and Iíve been putting it to the test. It is no ordinary mat; itís a Manduka PurpleLite Travel mat and itís heavier and thicker than an average sticky mat. A lot of the superyogis use the Black Manduka one, which is even thicker and heavier than my PurpleLite, but the black mat weighs 6.5 pounds. Since I am small and walk to class, mine is more practical (only weighs 4.5 lbs.) If any of you out there are contemplating a regular yoga practice, I recommend one of these super mats. They are cushy, resilient and will last a lot longer than a regular Tapas sticky mat.

Other yoga news: a teacher of mine asked me to put together a list of yoga schools in Paris (because she has friends there who would like to start practicing) and though I only had one to personally recommend, research yielded a surprising amount of alternatives. I canít tell if more schools have cropped up since I left, or if I simply overlooked them when I was living there.

Iím thinking of doing a yoga retreat in June, but Iíll have to wait and see if I have the money. It wonít be to any exotic locale so itís not expensive.

Right now, though, I should be focusing on using my JetBlue credit. Iím leaning more towards New York than Washington DC these days, just because I think I can write off the trip. But Iíll have to check with my accountant.

Again with the accountant.

Iím taking this as a sign that I should email him. Right now.
