Last night was a night of gifts.
My yoga teacher and friend, Katherine G. gave them to me.
First, was the gift of having her as a teacher. She is a generous, calm and curious teacher. She is on her path and is willing to share what she discovers with her students. Last night she shared her experience of rediscovering a book, 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life by Cami Walker. She explained that giving without expectation can lead to being more open and aware when the universe is bestowing its gifts to you. That we must learn to listen quietly to take in those gifts both large and small.
Katherine also gave me the gift of her generosity. I told her about my upcoming class, Latin American Influences: Textile Inspirations while she was at her home in Mexico. Last night, she presented me with a package containing some of the Mexican textiles from her collection. She is letting me borrow them for my class...I am thrilled! Here are those colorful, joyful textiles. Thank you Katherine.
