Morning Sadhana* (Sadhana is a sanskrit word for daily spiritual practice).

Aloha Everyone,

Some RV Parks have what the writer, James Michener in his novel, Iberia (Spain) describes as DUENDE. This quintessential Spanish word had various meanings, but here I am referring to the definition of "quality of passion and inspiration or spirit."

My practice of Kundalini Yoga includes Sadhana, daily spiritual practice. It is very private and personal. My Sadhana is impacted by my immediate environment but always include physical exercise and some form of meditation.

Prompted by the wonderful DUENDE of the RV park, I practiced Sadhana everyday except for two mornings when I was fortunate to attend Angela's yoga class. With mind and body in tune and focused, I always find that a day that begins with an hour of Sadhana is most satisfying.

The rest of the morning was spent doing laundry. In the afternoon, I finished the birthday card for our granddaughter and worked on my Hawaii real estate licensing requirements.

J.J. and I shared steak and broccoli plus baby spinach and arugula salad. We are going to bed early in preparation for our drive tomorrow.

Aloha -- Cathi
