If you have never received a telegram I am planning to change that.
In 2014 had been delivering telegrams a few times a month here and there but focusing mainly on getting Yoga Teacher Certified. The three month program was intense, my muscles were making new memories and little did I know my graduation would create a memory of my lifetime.
My classmates all gathered as yogi’s do around food, mandalas, tears and full of excitement for our completion of the program. With a kombucha in hand and a mouth full of hummus I was surprised by my first telegram in front of everyone. My friend and mentor George put together a rap about being a yoga girl and how fly my down dog is and get up with a chaturanga. My whole class was cheering, clapping, and also enamored with this public display of love through song.
I found myself crying, laughing, embarrassed a little, but overwhelmed with delight. To have a talented performer go out of their way to prepare a song, original lyrics, a perfect costume and the boldness of the execution was everything I put into my own performances. To receive this gift of a sining telegram from my personal experience opened to my heart and all my chakras. To prepare and deliver a telegram as a performer is always exciting. To become part of a life time memory for your loved one is an honor.
To sing a memory of a life time is not only my motto but always my goal.
