I thank you, god, for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitable earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable you?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
the first gift yoga ever gave me was knowing that who i am in this moment is enough, is infinite, is worthy of love.
the gift yoga gives me every day is the ability to meet each human being in my life and greet them with: who you are in this moment is enough, is infinite, is worthy of love.
Today i was fortunate enough to share a special moment with a mere stranger. as part of #ydli10 i organized a dairy birthing center at the #fingerlakescheesefestival. after the third calf was delivered i was going to get the bottle to get the calf its first feeding, i overheard a lady on the bench saying how watching the birth was one of the most beautiful things she has ever seen. it stopped me in my tracks and i instinctively asked her if she would like to feed it. she asked if i was serious and when i said yes she lit up and said she would love to. i wish i had gotten her name but as you can see she fed that calf. a few minute into it and after talking about how we care for our animals and life in general i look over and her eyes were full of tears of joy. once the calf was done she hugged me and told me i had provided her with one of the highlights of her life and she's was so grateful. in the end it was me who teared up. it was such a great experience to share my everyday with so many and that lady really hit home. •
to say it took a village to pull this off was an understatement. everyone i asked gave what they could- wither the time, equipment, an ear- i hope you all know how much it means, not to just myself, but our consumers as well! •
