these are pictures i took with my friend erik while we were exploring theodore roosevelt island--a little swampy oasis just a stones throw from georgetown. oh I haven't posted in so long because there just doesn't seem to be time these days (or maybe I've just been really into watching the first season of 30 rock on netflix). anyway, i am loving this summer full of bike rides and dinner parties and the velvet underground and mint ice cream and learning to play the piano from the same piano book that both my aunt and my father learned with. there have also been some good lessons within it all, particularly about honesty. i've been thinking a lot about telling the truth lately and how much i appreciate when people do it, even if its not the easiest answer. in the past, i think i used to prefer the niceties above all, but these days i find myself taking the truth because it means i don't have to waste time wondering about what is really going on. all that time adds up after a while.
i start my yoga teacher training tomorrow and i am excited and have a few butterflies of nervousness. it's going to be a whole new thing that i am flinging myself into and i can't predict where i will end up with it all. another adventure right here at home--i love it. i bought new yoga clothes this week and i felt like i was a kid and picking out my first day of school outfit.
