“Happy Riḍván!” to those celebrating the “the Most Great Festival.” “Ramadān Mubarak, Blessed Ramadān!” to anyone observing the holy month of Ramadān. Many blessings to all, and especially to those celebrating or observing Orthodox Easter, the Second Sunday of Easter, and/or Counting the Omer!

“‘It is easy,’ I said, ‘I can change that picture of the world he carries around in his head.’

‘How?’

‘I can give him a history lesson.’

‘A history lesson?’

‘Yes, I am a student of history, don’t you remember? And what we students of history always learn is that the human being is a very complicated contraption and that they are not good or bad but are good-and-bad and the good comes out of the bad and the bad out of the good, and the devil take the hindmost.’”

 – (Jack and Anne) quoted from All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren

Please join me for a 65-minute virtual yoga practice on Zoom today (Sunday, April 24th) at 2:30 PM. You can use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or (for a slightly faster reply) you can email me at myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Sunday’s is available on YouTube and Spotify. [Look for “04242021 All Sides of the Story”]

NOTE: Due to artist protests, one song may not play on Spotify. As I support artists in their efforts to bring about change, I am not re-mixing affected playlists.

The Library of Congress was established today in 1800 and it includes hundreds of millions of stories, including those by and about Robert Penn Warren (born today in1905). Here’s a little excerpt from my 2021 post about this date: “Mr. Warren has been quoted as stating, ‘The individual is an embodiment of external circumstances, so that a personal story is a social story.’” Click here to read the entire post.

Click here if you want a quick overview of some of the stories referenced in today’s practice.

And, don’t forget, it’s time to Kiss My Asana!

In the spirit of generosity (“dana”), the Zoom classes, recordings, and blog posts are freely given and freely received.
