early morning radio

guest room

I'm up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday to polish off a client presentation before boarding my flight for my Monday morning meeting.

Not particularly happy about it, but soldiering on.

Speaking of Faith is on, one of those Public Radio shows that they air at the crack of dawn on a Sunday, when most folks are sleeping in and dreaming of pancakes.

Author Matthew Sanford is being interviewed about his book on Yoga -- Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence -- talking about how he found his body again through Yoga, lost to him at 13 when he was in a car wreck and lost the use of his legs.

It's full of those remarkable moments that make you stop and lift your head and just listen. Corporeal and existential and insightful. Finding himself, his heart, his spirit and the world of others, by finding his flesh and bone.

The broadcast, podcast and video are here »

So worth the listen.

I will take a listen, definitely. We do yoga with the kids at school, and at first they were all over the place, but now, they go right to the mats and get so still and quiet. The video we watch has a beautiful song in the middle and it's the best part of my day to hear these kids "sing" it.
