Yoga in Ghazni

I have done a lot of new things here: build furniture, anesthetize cats, sleep 50 feet from a helicopter landing zone and now yoga. One of the nurses is very into it, and thought it would be relaxing, fun and a way to let go of some bitterness that sometimes happens when you spend several hours everyday in stressful situations and in company you didn't choose.

It was a lot of fun.

My favorite is the "tree" that you can see above. If you need to bring your focus in your own feelings, you close your fingers. If you want to send out some peace and tranquility to others, you spread your fingers. Mine were spread very wide and pointed toward the nursing dorms.

It looks like everyone's fingers and arms are very wide spread. I worked for 8 years in a predominantly female workforce. Inevitably someone cried for one reason or another at every staff meeting we had. I hated going. I feel for you and I feel for those nurses too. Some days have got to just stink out there.
