I was outside the country last week on a work assignment, which prevented me from posting any blog entries. I could check my e-mails a few times, but really did not focus to put together even a short item. I was in Santa Marta, Colombia at my organization‘s semi-annual meeting. I was able to do pranayama and meditation each day, and even fit in some yoga in my yoga room a few days. I needed the healing to recover from the wear and tear of flying and hectic meetings. You would think that being forced to sit in a seat for extended periods of time would be conducive to calm and clarity — it’s not. I will try to put something more substantive than this notice shortly.
