Small conquest

Yesterday, in my yoga class while I was in downward-facing dog and looking back between my legs, I noticed that my heels were almost touching the ground. For someone who has been working for the past six months to loosen up the hamstrings, the “almost” seemed like a breakthrough. Of course, there were other facets of my practice that still lagged, that are even laughable, but when the journey is so long, you have learn to enjoy the scenery each day.
