And one of those more frequently occurring expected pleasures is Wednesday evening yoga practice, followed by Indian dinner at Tarka with my dad. Along with the weekly coffee klatch with my coworkers and the fact that it is, after all, Hump Day, yoga and a veggie curry makes Wednesdays one of my favorite days, and almost certainly my favorite workday.
So even though this is called Inspiration Saturday, here's some inspiration from earlier in the week. Just random thoughts, projects, and tastes:

Finding my happy place
At the end of every practice, we go into 'final resting pose', which is basically lying on the ground, relaxing all of your muscles and your mind for about five full minutes. The instructor, in her very soothing voice, tells us to think of a place where we were happy, and to let your thoughts drift in and out like clouds, not to hang onto them. So I've started making Kefalonia my go-to place in my mind. It's a Greek island that I've been to just a handful of times when I was younger with my grandparents. Here's a photo that I took back in the days of film and scanned in a few years ago:
Tark-ya very muchOne of the thoughts I have to let pass me by in my Greek daydream is deciding what I'm going to eat at Tarka. I think my favorite dish is Chana Saag, a chickpea curry with a kind of creamed spinach. So good especially ordered with extra veggies and a side of roti bread. No need for rice.

So while I continue to enjoy the weekend and dread Monday morning, at least I can still look forward to Wednesday.
