In Gratitude

For the past 18 years I have taught an adaptive yoga class for the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to a wonderful enthusiastic group.  This summer, when the NMSS could no longer fund the class, its future was uncertain.  Happily the management at the facility, where we have held classes for a number of years, generously decided to donate the space to us, allowing students to continue to benefit from yoga.  Thank you Angel City Body Kinetics! 

These flags, inspired by the flag for my neighbor, are in celebration of the sun shining brightly on our class again.

Earlier post:  "Gift of Sunshine" 
This was the original flag I created and gave to a friend and neighbor who is very ill... to send a little sunshine his way.  I love using sun images, personally finding them healing and energizing to work with.  What better way to share something?  Saying beyond words,  "I am thinking of you."  
Many years ago, when moving across the street to a new apartment, Mike kindly gave me a staghorn fern that he couldn't house in the new place.  Over the years it has done really well in my yard, in fact, doubled in size growing through the lattice to the backside.  The wonder of nature!  He would appreciate that.

  1. OH Linda, how wonderful that you've taught, and will continue to teach yoga for the MS folks. You are spreading sunshine and light to them.
