I got to hear something I’ve hardly ever heard while getting measured for a new suit on Saturday. The Tailor, perhaps for effect, perhaps not, perhaps I don’t care, made an ego pleasing production about how the suit I wanted needed to be be taken in substantially for a proper fit. I am many things, small has never been prominent among those things and to hear that combination of words come out of somebody’s unsolicited mouth was music to my ears. I reminded myself of that sense of accomplished happy in the middle of Bikram Yoga class this evening. While pulling myself off the mat for the umpteenth time, and admiring the shade of fucshia I was turning, I quickly reminded myself as to just how worth it is.
I am about as agile as a elephant on a high wire, but you have to walk the walk. My lovely son was having some anxiety about a class we have been making him take. Having pumped him up, had to back up my talk, first tailors then the world.
