I started this blog in August of this year as a place to organize my thoughts and various researches on yoga. But the combination of blogging and yoga is just not working for me. My yoga practice has always been a matter of going inward in order to go out. To be quiet in order to eventually speak more clearly, while blogging is very much about maintaining a more or less outward energy—at least that's how I relate to it. And keeping this blog seems to be effecting how I practice—for instance, I have started to catch myself thinking, in the middle of practice, whether or not a certain experience or insight might make a good blog post. I miss the clarity, the peace, and the essential wordlessness of how I have always related to yoga before, which is why I've decided to stop running this blog. For those of you who've been kind enough to subscribe to these posts—thank you! I'm still around, at my other (completely un-yogic!) blog Food Culture Index, and posting inspirations of a literary sort on my tumblr, Og-blay. And of course, you can find me on Twitter, too. But for now, here, I'm signing off.
