Andrew made this cool avatar for me from a picture we took at High Point State Park over the summer. I was really into yoga then and would do the tree pose whereever we went. With all the turmoil at work lately, it makes sense that I should return to this pose. My yoga teacher told me that the tree pose is meant to help root you and bring balance and strength into your life. I don’t believe in folklore too much, but sometimes it is nice to feel physically powerful, in a world where so little is really under our control.
