Yoda and Yoga

The two have more in common than just the sound of their name. Both are in a relationship with the force of the body and wisdom. I’m not a die hard STAR WARS fan but I do love Yoda.

“When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”

Yoda, Return of the Jedi

wise-is-yoda

Very true that quote is, which is exactly why I’m on the chase to sculpt my body into
something fantastic this year. I’m quite excited fitness. I’ve been working out on an average of 6-days a week. I could probably stand to cut back, but honestly, it’s not strenuous workouts. I hone an elliptical machine for no less than 65-minutes straight each morning. If the latter of the day permits me time, I squeeze in an even lower impact 20 (+) additional minutes– (moderate walking speed). The elliptical machine works my arms and legs simultaneously and the caloric burn is unreal. So I wasn’t put off when I started to get a little lower back aggravation.
Working out 6-days a week is nothing to scoff at.
The lower back pain wasn’t persistent or too, too bad, but it was often enough for me to start researching stretches and things I could possibly do to alleviate it. Because the elliptical machine works both the upper body and lower, I’m also experiencing muscle tightness in my shoulders and between my blades. It doesn’t help that I naturally hold tension in my shoulders. There is no room for additional taut in my trapezius muscles.

It is wise to know thy body, Yoda is right. In search of non-medicated muscle relief (so that I can get back to my fun and awesome workouts), I came across many suggestions of muscle stretching and lengthening via Yoga. I’m all in!

If wisdom is on the table – I’m trying to eat it.
Once knowledge is conquered, I’m down to seed it.

I’m glad you dropped by and decided to read it.
Yoda and Yoga are categorized wisdom. I need it.

Yoda and Yoga are my go-to’s when I’m looking to dimensionally elongate,

Happy weeks end to thee – I’m excited about ‘the stretch’ of it – and couldn’t wait. 😀

WONDERSTRUCK Weekend

Whatever did you do this weekend?
The nerd in me watched PLANET EARTH to no end.

Broadcasted via the BBC AMERICA channel
was a plethora of Earth’s regional annals.

From every animal on land, to the creepy crawly things,
to which animal on land roams and reign supreme.

I watched about 14 episodes
and I am wiser now, much in the know.

In PLANET EARTH II S1, E4 titled, “DESERTS” there was a lot of heat.
It opened up with a female lion on the prowl for a herd of Oryx meat.

She was working as a team, there were several other cats,
who intend to catch “a meal today” but unfortunately failed at that.

They also failed to secure a giraffe one day.
He was up for kicks and the pride went on their way.

That’s when the narrator kicked us a factual punt
and said “the desert is the hardest place for a lion to hunt.”

The Desert is among the driest places on Earth with minimal change,
until Mother Nature (in one day), drops a years worth of rain.

The rain creates the rock crevices and canyons that we love, among other dramatic landscapes.
Man is blessed to have helicopter rides on his side with cameras and hours of reel to take.

Among the billows of sand grows Cacti — and quite large.
It is also the Harris’s Hawk perfect desert barge.

I wish not to bore you with the details of Desert truths on Planet Earth II,
so, if you already know about the Desert’s residence and growth, what do you know about HABOOBS?

This is not an HABOOB | GIPHY

They own the Desert but what is its benefit?
I don’t know, but they are quite the show and a huge danger to drive in.

Humans have a big advantage over the animals of Earth.
Our brains are bigger, stronger, and our diets yield high girth.

We have the ability to make and buy canned goods,
we have the ability to choose our residential hoods.

But most everything that I learned from all of those shows,
is that wildlife and our society have a similar flow.

There are lions, bears, hawks, and snakes,
that make no apologies about being on the take.

Bill is not a lion, Lyndsay is not a bear, Mary is not a hawk, and James is not a snake,
but somehow each of them found themselves law-entangled regarding a predatory take.

And they are not the only ones mimicking Planet Earth’s wildlife,
the compassionate and the caring become barbaric in a moment of strife.

When food is fierce in nature it eventually becomes fierce for us.
We can foresee tomorrow’s troubles, if we history & nature trust.

Or we could just watch WONDERSTRUCK to learn more about wildlife and more about us,
I’m Qui
Noting the barbarism of nature, as well as enjoying the civil front that humans put up.

Oh, I’ve been thinking…

As if I ever stop thinking.
For if I retreat from my thoughts, I may resort to drinking.

Who am I fooling? I am already familiar with the practice.
At the end of the day, my vodka toast to tomorrow is “I got this.”

Oh yes, Happy Friday! I insist on being such today.
I’ve got my scripts and a camera on my hip – I am ready to play

because I’ve been thinking… and a bit too much.
I’ve been busy with intellectualism and less with love.

For that, I apologize.
I’m a woman about quality and less about the size.

Good morning sweetheart. Open and focus your beautiful eyes.
The world is at hand, what doth this day hold in surprise?

To God be the glory and the limit is the sky,
I’m Qui
Up thinking about longevity, love, you, and I.

Let’s prepare to go long.

Let’s re-focus on THE LORAX and our home:
