More coming soon, but this just in: I did crow! I called Zen Muffin to tell her and she said she also mastered it this week. I don't think I mastered it, by any means, but this pose has been a big block for me. I've always been convinced I lacked the physical strength to do it, and have just backed out of it or not even really tried. But yesterday morning without even really thinking about it, it happened. I wasn't in total control of it, but still. Some things that helped: keeping my knee firm against my upper arm(on the outside of my knee) and rounding my back a little bit. It was a really excellent experience.
A new entry soon with deep thoughts, clever witticisms and elaborate descriptions of human emotion.
