Even though we're just a week in, the transitions of the seasons and life have made themselves very present so far this month. This past week I joyfully celebrated many of the babies from my original Mamas' Circle turning two, and have been deeply saddened by illness and loss affecting dear friends and family. There are constant reminders of resilience, impermanence, and ever-present change.
And as I settle in to the last 2 months of my pregnancy, this sense of in-between is only magnified. The forces of my toddler and my yoga practice both demand that I live in the present moment. Then the excitement of bringing new life into this world takes me away to a place of curiosity and wonder about this person we will get to meet and raise and parent.
