Friends, worry, restorative yoga

One of my friends is a chronic worrier, so much so that it has started to have an impact upon what I write and post on the blog. It has not censored me so much as I stop and think about what I'm writing, wondering if my dear friend will pick up upon it and…

The quality of my thoughts
