Last Saturday morning I was headed to yoga shortly before sunrise. The sunrise was looking pretty spectacular through the trees, but I told myself I would miss class if I elected to chase the sunrise. I chose yoga.
Then I came around a bend in the road and there was the moon, dropping (quickly) in the semi-dark sky. I believe there was gasping. And, even at the risk of missing class, there was no question about stopping. I pulled over, grabbed my camera and tripod and set up as quickly as I could. I managed to get just a few shots before it dropped behind the trees (which meant that I was only ten minutes late for yoga) and was pleased that one turned out relatively well.
Nothing beats a clear winter morning!

Good for you! Sometimes things wait for no woman. Gorgeous. (And of course camera and tripod just happened to be in the car.)
Thanks, Gretchen! Yes, camera and tripod often go with me on weekends. 🙂 Never know what I might see along the way.

I love your “at the risk of missing class….” That’s what I call zen or the moment! That’s what I believe is the essence of meditation and mindfulness. The “stop” thing. You’ve stopped. You did! Sometimes we are so rushing (even to do “good things” and “healthy choices”) that we forget to stop and enjoy the life in the here and now. And I agree about the fresh winter morning. I am from Russia originally. And I know how beautiful nature can be in winter. And the moon…and the sun… A very famous Russian poet Pushkin wrote about it Мороз и Солнце – день чудесный, meaning “the frost and the sun – a gorgeous day… I am an new blogger. I am glad that there is an opportunity to share one’s experiences and interests with people of the same interests. I have an Instagram account (evaisco) and a Facebook page (Wise Living), as well as YouTube posts where I share my accomplishments and successes in fitness, and healthy living. I started meditating around 8 years ago. I read and studied many different schools and techniques, and I do practice mindfulness and pranayama. I practice yoga daily for half a year, and cooking vegetarian and vegan dishes. On my new blog I am sharing all this experience with everyone. I hope you can follow and find my articles honest and interesting. Thank you, and good luck.
