It’s been 7 years of weekly blog posts for Balancing on Unstable Surfaces; 367 published since July 15, 2014. Thanks to all those who have read, commented or liked over the years. I don’t have any grand insights from 7 years, I don’t even have a good grasp of what get’s a lot views and what doesn’t. I mean Eddie Van Halen, who knew?

My first thought for this blog was how yoga poses relate to life situations. My first featured image was a scorpion pose variation. At the time, I had no idea I’d be able to get my feet to my head one day. In the 2014 photo, after the camera clicked, I lost control, rolled forward and busted my lip. In a backbend yoga intensive a few years later, I learned how to safely place my feet on my head. Since then I know the warm ups and components to make this work. Some days are easier than others and some times my body says, don’t you dare. Which is like writing; some weeks, the ideas are there and others not so much.
I know at some time in the future, putting my chin on the floor and flipping my legs up and over and placing my feet on my head is not going to happen. The same with writing a weekly post. In the mean time, I am grateful for being able to get my feet to my head, blogging weekly, and most of all, readers.
