I have dabbled in yoga for the past four years, and I like it when teachers ask the class to set an “intention” at the beginning of practice. Setting an intention allows me to have a more meaningful yoga class because it reinforces why I’m taking the time to be there. In that vein, here are my intentions as I begin Keeping Things Alive:
- Courage: I want to fearlessly speak up about what I know and not censor myself.
- Creativity: I want to express myself through writing, stories, and other forms of art.
- Clarity: I want to present my thoughts and knowledge in a way that is easy for others to understand.
- Connect: I want to connect with others who share my love for keeping things alive. I want to explore and appreciate the connections between everything on this planet.
Well, I didn’t mean for all of my intentions to begin with the letter “C”, but that’s the way it goes.
