Shavasana - time to relax ...or?

Hey there Bratty Friends,

Is it just me, or does everyone argue with their Archetype during Shavasana? I mean, it's as though "Let's make a deal" time ensues the second I'm all laid out, sweaty, eyes closed, and the relaxation starts. If you aren't familiar with Shavasana, it's aka "Corpse pose" - the one you usually do at the end of yoga practice:



Why is something meant to be so relaxing so damn difficult?

Maybe it's all that generated energy that needs somewhere to go.

Maybe some Animus ass-kicking is simply long overdue.

Maybe I'm just a "self-obsessed weirdo" of a writer and it just comes naturally.

Or maybe I need more bacon.

More later,

Bratty

Happy Monday!

Dear Bratty Friends,

After going shootin' on the lord's day the weekend before, I just couldn't pass this one up. It seems to sum up how I feel about shootin' rifles, and how much I love Mondays. Happy Monday BTW!

- Jer. Taylor.


You know,it's funny.

I hadn't heard of the word, so I Googled for images of it. What could possibly represent vegete? I pictured a girl leaping spryly into the air. Soaring up with vim and vigor.

Instead I got these:




Some kind of yummy Japanese vegetable and fruit drink.


Some strange anime type prince with special powers??



A cat who's reconsidering vegetarianism.



The movie Coma. Hmmm. This is weird. Not only have I watched this old movie within the last year, but I was just thinking about comas today. Isn't that strange?





A scarf for sale on Amazaon Japan.


Hunh.

Well. How lively is that?
