Due to foreseeable but nevertheless regrettable circumstances having to do with my work, it is starting to look like I won't be able to leave the country this summer. Which means that Mysore this summer is a no go. I can't go into the details here, but if you would like a little hint, it has something to do with (a) not having a tenure-track academic position, and (b) not having permanent resident status in this country. If you understand what (a) and (b) add up to, you need no further explanation. If you don't... well, you are blessed. This may be one of those times where ignorance may actually be bliss.
I am, of course, quite bummed out about this turn of events. But staying bummed out isn't going to change anything. So I'll try not to be bummed out for too long. In the meantime, I guess I'll continue to practice on my own, and blog about the practice and stuff from where I am. Maybe, if things work out, I might try to go to a workshop sometime later in the summer. But we'll see. This is starting to look like not a good year for yoga travel for me. Oh well. It is what it is.
