My Personal Titles
Descriptions in nine words—drawn from my own experience.
I Can Count to Nine
Clear it out. Blow it off. Let it go.
Bird Flaps its Wings
Soar and Sing while staying connected to the ground.
Around the Platter
Clean Your Plate
Smooth out the bumps. Or spit and make music.
Variation on Around the Platter
The Tenth Step*
Here it comes again. Practice makes progress. Just do it.
Underwear and humor go a long way toward balance.
Daughter on the Mountain
Left hand close to the heart: I am that daughter.
Daughter in the Valley
We all hit bottom. Rising hands carry positive energy.
Carry the Ball to the Side
First left, then right, then soon to be complete.
New View on the Horizon
Pull in tomorrow, a brand new moment, sunrise – sunset.
Pulling in the Energy
It Will Come to Me.
The universe always answers yes. Honor gifts with gratitude.
Keep It Up!
At times only hard work gets the job done.
A Different Take
For fresh perspective, try a new stance and angle.
Don’t forget wrists, ankles. Beauty is in the details.
Cook until Done
Kneading, stretching, smoothing. Continue until ready. Do your best.
Working the Pulley
Honor our ancestors: inventors of what has come before.
Light at the Top of the Head
Turn It Over
I accept the things I cannot change—or control.
Light at the Temple
Get Your Head on Straight
Today is what we have. Live it wisely-consciously.
Just Do It
Inhale. Exhale boldly. Release it. Emit air. Give forth.
Lose yourself in nature and the rhythms of earth.
Trust. Smile. Love. Peace. Humility. Health. Spirit. Grace. Joy.
Cosmic Consciousness Pose
Let Go and Let God
The wide horizon holds vast promise. Be grateful. Breathe!
