Hello Readers, I hope everyone is having a great month of November.
Today, I am joining with Lens-Artists and Amy’s theme of WAITING (here)
For my take – I have 10 bike photos from my growing collection of bike images. Sue Judd (here) has a series called, “What is it about Bicycles?” and Sometimes I think of her posts when I see bikes waiting for their owners.
As I wind down this post, here is a song that I have enjoyed this month – too bad it came with bad news. TobyMac’s 21-year old son, Truett, passed away in October (cause of death not revealed yet). And I guess a couple of years ago, TobyMac wrote this “Scars” song to encourage his son… and to remind him that God was always there for him – to “look up” and remember where our help comes from.
I LOVE the message here – especially the line “lift your head up” –
We’ve all been there
Scars come with livin’
You are not alone
We’ve all been there (been there, been there, oh), oh
So lift your head, LIFT YOUR HEAD
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you’re not alone…”
LIFT YOR HEAD UP….
So as noted, I love the ending of the song where it twice says, “lift your head up” – because this is a topic that also comes up in yoga: we make sure we lift our head to let energy flow to the brain better.
We stretch the neck and open the pathways to let life fill us up and flow through our veins. Seriously, some argue that looking down all the time blocks energy – clogs the throat chakra – and leads to imbalance. I guess the throat chakra also connects to times when someone feels like they “need to shrink” because they have been hurt – or might show imbalance if someone rambles too much – well — an energy imbalance can happen if we have clogged pathways – so remember – LIFT YOUR HEAD UP…. also remember that we don’t go to A yoga class because we are already super fit – instead – we do yoga to get stretched – we find a yoga for us so we can stretch and open the body. If you go to a class or do yoga at home – you can do little stretches to open the throat – lift the head – and gently stretch the neck.
That leads me to one last photo for this post. It was a photo I had in mind for last week’s Lens-Artist’s challenge (here) which had the theme CREEPY…. I don’t think the team will mind me adding this “creepy hand” photo here:
