insalata caprese

Tried to hold onto the taste of summer for just a tad longer with a simple caprese salad - except the downpour this morning sort of killed our basil plant and I had to improvise with pesto - not quite the same but turned out nice enough

As it turns out, you can't really pack up in one night everything you've accumulated over 10 years - mementos of good times past, convenience of the lisent living arrangement plus knickknacks bought in anticipation of a shared future prove too heavy a burden to carry out the door in one go - and of course the tear-induced blurry vision doesn't help

Always feel better after hot yoga - not sure if it's because of serene quiet as i lay in shavasana in the warmth or the fact that I sweat buckets - there's something satisfying about getting completely drenched from a workout, heat assisted or not, and all you can focus on is how it feels in the here and now.

I had almost forgotten how much I like it - it seems a waste to spend time in a heated room when it was gorgeous out there but then the gloomy rain has driven me back.  I'm a little rusty and had trouble with holding some poses, but hopefully as i get back into it in the colder months I will regain some ground.

And my fav instructor Matthew always have the best soundtrack - i love that it's not the kind of music that pops into mind when one thinks of yoga (instrumental sitar and all) but just a really relaxing mix of songs I've heard here and there.  I hope he will be sharing his playlist.

I wonder why it's so difficult to be honest to myself about myself... and why am I not the only one who has to pay the price for all the times I've buried my head in the sand...
