New Website is being reconstructed!  I have just posted the first in a series of four stories about Yoga Teacher Training.

In the future, I will incorporate the ability to order my new book My Life at the Marshfield Hills General Store.  Also upcoming will be stories of new travel adventures, and if I get this right, I will be able to add sound!  Samples of music I've experienced!  The happy noises of an open market in who-knows-where!

We're getting ready to hit the road again - and that always gives us a lot to talk about!

My Yoga Journey!

I haven't posted anything about Yoga on Starboogie, since it has been primarily a journal of travels and other experiences closer to home.  BUT, it seems there is an interest in my Yoga life, which has become - indeed - very important to me.  For now, just to bring you up to speed, I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training Certification last Spring at the Yoga Sanctuary in Punta Gorda Florida.  Anyone who has gone through this training knows, without my saying another word, that it changes your life. Being a person who loves words, I have written a fair amount about the training experience, as well as the way in which Yoga plays out in my life on and off the mat.

If you're on Facebook and care to check it out, I have a page called Luna Yoga by Sherry.  And, in the coming weeks, I am going to share on Starboogie some of my writings on this subject - the ones that I think are relevant to everyone, whether or not you have ever done a singe Down Dog!

67th September

This is my 67th September. Always a month of change, mourning the loss of summer, tasting the reality of the coming cold. Like most Americans, I am programmed for a new 'start' this month, and memories easily arise - a new teacher, finding my classrooms, a skirt my mother made for me, a fresh blue sweater. In the Northeast where I've spent most of my life, September's cool breezes bring energy and enthusiasm back, waking everyone from heat induced lethargy. We say we're sad that summer is over, but in our hearts, we're glad to get back "to business", to feel recharged. In New England, work and purpose are part of our DNA and this season feels right to us. We are at home in it.

Even though I will not be here to witness the magnificent changes autumn brings or the bracing winter winds that reinforce our hardiness, my programming is deeply imbedded and I find myself thinking about what I will accomplish this 'winter'. At present, I am merely courting ideas, but once re-situated in my Florida home, I am quite certain one or two will take root and I will be on to something new. It's who I am, after all.
