This is a story...


(1988- present)- Saving the world, one heartshake and hugjump at a time.

She:
is a speech-language pathologist in Illinois. Prefers the sound words and letters make together over their intrinsic meaning (example: teardrop, puddle, and pickle). Loves e.e. and vonnegut, and a little bit of Robert M. Sapolsky.

I'm just a girl looking for something real. Maybe I'll find it here in my truthful meanderings.

Allie, 24. loving life. Nice to meet you.

Yoga doesn’t a;ways have to be a serious practice. Don’t forget to laugh and wiggle at yourself sometimes :). I love that I look like I’m about to take flight!

Yeah, yeah, yeah…namaste and shower time!

I skipped day 4, warrior 2!!! Soon to come.
Day 6: chaturanga
A few months ago, I could not do this pose. My arms and shoulders and core were to weak to even comprehend this thought, I’m amazed and impressed and inspired that I can now do the majority of them, on my toes (not even my knees, modifications only as needed!), during a practice. All because of a stupid, punkass pushup. I remember the class where I was like, no. You know what? I’m going to keep trying. I fell on my face for the next 5 weeks. and then week 6 came along, and who knew? I floated.
What does intimacy mean to you?
This is a loaded question, with a complicated answer. I need more wine before I can even begin to make sense of my whirling definitions.

“The first cup moistens my lips and throat. The second cup breaks my loneliness. The third cup searches my barren entrail but to find therein some thousand volumes of odd ideographs. The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration - all the wrongs of life pass out through my pores. At the fifth cup I am purified. The sixth cup calls me to the realms of the immortals. The seventh cup - ah, but I could take no more! I only feel the breath of the cool wind that raises in my sleeves. Where is Elysium? Let me ride on this sweet breeze and waft away thither. (Lu Tung)”
I have a passion for tea.Take a sip with me.
