Anyway, I don't suppose you care for knowing this level of detail about the goings-on of my digestive system. In any case, when I woke up in the morning, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to do my usual Saturday morning Sharath led primary. But I decided to just go ahead with it anyway; I figured I can always stop if things get to be too much.
It turned out to be quite alright. If anything, the entire practice actually felt a little lighter than usual, maybe because of the loss of water weight. Ha! Now I wonder if this is why people who go to Mysore often report achieving great progress in their asana practice. Could it have something to do with the fact that their stomachs are continually purging the third-world food that they are ingesting, causing them to lose water weight and thus become lighter in their practices? Just speculating here: Those of you out there who have been to Mysore can tell me whether this theory of mine holds any water (no pun intended).
I can't help noticing that I have "lost" a couple of followers in the last couple of days. I'm guessing that these people have un-followed me because of my not-so-polite reply to an anonymous commenter in my previous post. Or maybe they un-followed me because they are fans of Sadie Nardini, and are upset by my less-than-flattering treatment of her.
Oh well. All in a day's blogging work, I guess. In any case, amassing followers (damn, does this sound grandiose, or what?) is not (or should not be) the purpose of blogging. It's not like I get paid for every time somebody follows me, anyway. Hmm.... how many more followers will I lose by saying this? I guess we'll find out soon :-)
In any case, the whole point of blogging is to say what needs to be said, when it needs to be said. Besides, if one has the temerity to engage in anonymous sniping, getting shot down should be par for the course, no? Especially if the sniping in question involves insulting somebody's teacher...
All in all, I have to say that this blogging thing is a funny business. Actually, it reminds me a little of academia: So many people's panties get bunched up over things of so little consequence. For instance, as a result of certain things I have said over the years, there are now blogs out there that I literally cannot leave comments on; the blog owners/operators automatically delete whatever comments I leave on their blogs... I mean, really? Might we not be taking our cyber-personalities a little too seriously?
I could go on and on about all this. But as they say, all not-so-good things have to come to an end. So this will be it for now. More later.
