Someone told him, Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.

He replied to him, Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?

Pointing to his disciples, he said, Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’”


– quoted from Matthew 12:47-50 (NIV)



The first words he said when he had digested the shock, contained a magnanimous declaration, which he probably was not conscious of having uttered aloud Weel – blude’s thicker than water – she’s welcome to the cheeses and the hams just the same.’”


– quoted from “Chapter IX, Die and endow a college or a cat. Pope.” of Guy Mannering, or The Astrologer (pub. 1815) by Sir Walter Scott, Bart


Please join me today (Tuesday, June 15th ) at 12:00 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. 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.


Tuesday’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify. [“Look for “06142020 World Blood Donor Day”]


Yesterday – and a year ago yesterday – I went down a rabbit hole on World Blood Donor Day. Today, I decided to “take the road not taken” (in other words, the other rabbit hole).
