Resting Poses

I love this card that Jessica sent me!  I think the overall pattern and color are fun but also all the little details in the people on their yoga mats remind me of books like "Where's Waldo?"  You can enjoy looking at the people and notice their pose, their clothes and they almost seem real- yet a quick glance is also enough to enjoy the illustration too.  Given my recent obsession with fabric for sewing I'm thinking this would be fun printed up on some cotton?!

Jess wrote to me about my upcoming visit, when as I mentioned in the last post we did Birkram Yoga in Georgetown.  This is a theme of our get-togethers, Jessica plans some very strenuous physical activities and sort of gives vague details about what I'm getting myself into.  Before I realize that I can't breathe/am sweating like a pig/no longer can move/forgot adequate water its too late to back out!  I'm mostly exaggerating, as in the end, I always appreciate doing it.  But I do have to laugh when I look back at all the times this has happened since I met Jess in college.


  1. Ha! I am a little embarrassed to admit that this is true. Looking back, I have to admit I have a reputation of torturing my visitors (Mom, I am sorry we walked to Foggybottom and Dad, I know that 10 miles walking to and from the Capitol Building probably wasnt the best plan). There are just so many fun things I like to do that are fairly physical. Cram them all into one weekend (or one walk) and wham you have a vacation with me. I will try to make a mental note to halve this. :)

  2. Jess- we all would probably agree we end up having lots of fun...and surprise ourselves that we can do the things with you! Remember the hike up pyramid point that we did in college? Ha ha!

  3. Oh my god. I had completely forgotten. We almost died. Why did I not think that frozen sand in the winter was hard and perhaps dune climbing can be dangerous when it is not summer? Note to my future self - do not do this again!
