The Yamas and Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele

I finished this book during the hiatus and noticed that I never went back and reviewed it. There are actually a few books, mostly the last of the Read Harder 2019 books, that this happened with. It's not generally a big deal with most of them, but it's good to come back around on it... Continue Reading →

An Almost American Girl by Robin Ha

An Almost American Girl is another Read Harder find, this time for task 4, a graphic memoir that just came out in January. It's about Ha's move to the US as a teenager. Realizing the book was about someone not born in the US actually made me like the title so much better. I grew... Continue Reading →

break your glass slippers by amanda lovelace

Ok, so it's no secret that amanda lovelace is one of favorite poets. I may have mentioned it a few times when I was reviewing any of her previous collections. I have one to catch up on, which is likely my next read for National Poetry Month. I am getting some other books in too,... Continue Reading →

Psalm 69: Save Me, O God

Psalm 69 is a beautiful lament where the author asks God to save them. As I read it, I thought of a person who was in over their heads in life and judged for it by their contemporaries, someone who is trying to make up for past transgressions but failing at it and turning to... Continue Reading →

Truth is One, Paths are Many

I was listening to the yearly Palm Sunday sermon last weekend, and it reminded me of all the paths to God according to yoga. I first saw it in the Yoga Sutras, but also in a new book I've started titled The Yoga of Jesus. I had read A Short History of Myth by Karen... Continue Reading →

April International Days

I've been enjoying writing about the UN International commemoration or remembrance days. I don't have something new to read for every day, but there are some. This time, I'll have every day listed, but would love suggestions in the comments for days that I don't have books. Thanks!! 2 April World Autism Awareness Day  (A/RES/62/139)... Continue Reading →

Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi

I'm a little sad this series is over. I've given myself some extra time before starting the next book to get into the right mindset, so I just keep replaying my favorite parts of the series in the car. The Shatter Me series has definitely been one of my favorites. The timing worked out for... Continue Reading →

Psalm 68: God Shall Scatter His Enemies

This month we're back to the Psalms. In case you weren't around for it, I had decided a few years ago to work through the psalms every April. There are 150 of them and that's a lot all in a row. We've gotten through 67 of them so far and it's been slow going on... Continue Reading →

Expanding my home practice

Everyone is learning a bit about what it's like to have a home practice, but I've been set up for this for a few years now. In most of the places I've rented before my current house, I had to make space for yoga somewhere when it was time to practice. Usually, it was the... Continue Reading →
