“Ramadān Mubarak, Blessed Ramadān!” to anyone who is observing the month of Ramadan. Keep your eyes open. Many blessings, also, to those who are Counting the Omer.

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”

– Søren Kierkegaard (b. 05/05/1813)

Despite what some people think, Cinco de Mayo has absolutely nothing to do with Mexican Independence Day (or mayonnaise) and everything to do with the spirit, the will, and the determination of the people in Pueblo, Mexico in 1862. It is a celebration of the ability to overcome “insurmountable” odds and to throw off oppression. It has also become a celebration of heritage – primarily the Mexican-American heritage which reflects the spirit and resilience of a small group of people.

If you want to learn more, while also celebrating (virtually) please join me today (Wednesday, May 5th) at 4:30 PM or 7:15 PM for a yoga practice on Zoom. Use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You will need to register for the 7:15 PM class if you have not already done so. Give yourself extra time to log in if you have not upgraded to Zoom 5.0. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or by emailing myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Wednesday’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify. [Look for “Cinco de Mayo”]
