When I went to teach yoga Tuesday I walked into a world of wonderful, creative, whimsy.
Miki Katagiri was in the process of installing her amazing, lovely, innovative, and wacky hats.
At all times you should be aware of what you see, what you hear, and what you feel!
Even though you can't see or hear certain changes, you can still feel them in your cells.
The universe is all around you and you should notice what is going on.
You could be an ant.
You could be a bird.
You could be any creature.
Be the wind.
Be the earth.
If you let yourself be the earth, you would see she is crying from what human beings have done to her.
We should appreciate what she has given us and return heart-fullness.
Feed mother’s milk with flowers
With my art I want to connect people together and unite ourselves again with the earth.
We must wake up and change.
We can change the world if we want.
Use the universal language.
Life is art
Unfortunately, I do not have many occasions to wear a wacky and wonderful hat, though I envision that Carrie from Sex in the City could pull them off with ease. But a part of me desperately wants a little bit of Miki's world.
I love snail mail
The show opens tonight at RabbitHole Studios, 33 Washington St, Dumbo, Brooklyn.
