A Return or a Re-Turning?

The following blog post began as a journal entry and became a letter to you, if you are here and reading. It is from Amy, owner of Carson City Yoga. There are a lot of words, and no pictures. It is long, and there are more questions than answers, so consider this fair warning. Read at your own risk, and then, if you can stand to be uncomfortable, go ask your own questions. Dear Friends – I want to to tell you this today. I want to tell you that my heart hurts. I want to tell you that I am feeling such deep sadness.

Equinox = Equal length of night and day Balance Of dark Of light. The cyclical rhythm of The dance, The celestial equator Intersecting with the great galactic ellipse.
