Miscalculations: no post this week, but I did see a magpie

A magpie mid-stride - there's something yogic about this pose.

I’m writing this from the green and leafy University of Saskatchewan, in Saskatoon, where the student union pub is called the Louis, for Louis Riel, and you can stay in residences called Athabasca Hall, and Qu’Appelle Hall.

I’m here for the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada’s annual conference and AGM, which begins Thursday.

So far I’ve spotted a magpie, a gopher, and one of the biggest and most fragrant purple lilac bushes I’ve ever seen.

Notably missing? This week’s blog post, which disappeared in a flurry of trip preparation.

And although I have my computer with me, and a desk, and some quiet time, the idea that I would write if from here turns out to be a rather large miscalculation.

See you next week, when I hope to finish outlining the connection between Chaturanga Dandasana and sitting at an outward pointing corner.

Yes, there’s one for me to sit with in this room.
