IDK, was it a tornado?

I always know when something has made the news at home, because my mother calls at 6:30 in the morning freaked out of her mind when she “heard that _____ happened {somewhere in NYC} and she’s terrified that I’m dead.

Good news: I’m not.  And I almost missed the whole thing.

I’ve started work on what seems to be a new annual commitment for me, The Gravesend Inn Haunted Hotel, and on the fateful weather day I was in the bowels of the theatre working my way through dusty costume shop.  There’s no weather in the stuffy, slow-moving air filled with mold and the reek of old fabric.  I had no idea what was going on above me; but I happened to pop my head up and hear the thunder.

I ended up standing next to John Huntington and his (very wet) phone while he recorded the gale.  Everyone and their brother has been posting their pictures, and there are some great ones on Gothamist, but this video almost made my teeth hurt.  I had to watch it in three sittings because I could feel my IQ dropping (almost the way I feel when I watch Jersey Shore).

Don’t worry mom.  I’m not dead.

Update: 9/18 – 10:30 am

The just announced on NPR that there was not one, but TWO tornadoes: one in Brooklyn and one in Queens.  There was also a Macroburst: a storm burst with winds over 100 mph and over 2 miles wide.  They mark the 9th and 10th tornadoes to hit NYC since 1950.

That feeling when your students work hard for their progress 😃 . . #alignmentfirst #alignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #progressnotperfection #yogateacher @gyosca @phoenixculturefitness #coachmentality #growthmindset
Last week @equinox asked how I make my life like a work of art ~ for me it's meditation. Meditation allows me the clarity of mind to stay in the present moment, appreciate the beauty around me, and stay in a space of gratitude. . . Real talk: I'm prone to be a but blue, by disposition. I've suffered from depression, and having a condition (#eds) that causes chronic pain exacerbations that problem. I've tried many things over the years, and meditation is one of the most consistent ways to keep my mood even and my head clear. ( 👀 my story for daily tips and meditation reminders) . . This beautiful #tt to #kohphagan #thailand and my time spent with @luna_alignment_yoga ~ our last day is a field trip to a local waterfall to relax and connect with nature... and, of course, meditate! . . . #Meditation #meditate #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #alignmentyoga #focusonyourbreath #selfcareisselflove #iamnotmyillness #EhlersDanlos #teameqx

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
