via Photo Challenge: Graceful

Obviously, I am anonymous so I can’t share a personal photo, but how about this for graceful?


Sitting on such a slant with those skinny legs makes me realize my own clumsiness.

I attempted yoga yesterday. 

I tried to follow the instructions, but somehow got lost with my body twisted like play dough into unnatural forms. No one had to help me out of those forms, but I felt ungainly and fat.

I am fat. No doubt, but not really, really fat. Not 600 lb-can’t-get-out-of-my-bed fat. Just a bit overweight. Also, maybe a bit inflexible. Not graceful like the birds above who just sit on the slippery rock, peaceably looking across the water without once losing their balance.

Yeah, more yoga this week.
