Ithacan Yogini Confluence

I am sometimes am in awe of the crazy yogini blogini coincidences. A few of my favs all writing on the same topic, inadvertently; major life events occurring simultaneously; and, oh yeah, a former Ithacan reading my blog just as I was looking for advice on my slacker studio owner.

That last one? Just happened this week and I'm still reeling from the coinkidink of it all. This lovely being not only read the blog just as I was in "AH! WTF!" mode and needing advice, she knew immediately who/what/where I was talking about and was able to give me direct insight into the situation, having known the studio owner and had a (minor) business relationship with her. Can I just say: incredibly helpful.

I had initially gone to her blog, called The Happy Blog, and commented. It was impossible to go to that site, spend more than two minutes, and not leave smiling (especially the "Tickling Slow Loris," which made me giggle alone in my kitchen for a good while). Now, having talked, and acquiring about four or five more truly outstanding coincidences under our belt, I will be a guest contributor on the beautiful and joyful Yoga Studio Decor site/blog.  To read my first guest post: Check-it.
