Karma is a Boomerang

I am going to start off every day with a yoga practice because I witnessed firsthand the healing power of karmic payback.

I did a nice yoga practice this morning, lots of stretching and twisting for my poor back which has been killing me lately. Felt really good afterwards, got on the train and headed to work. At Roosevelt Avenue, this guy gets on cursing at this woman for whatever reason (she didn't beat him to a seat; the train was empty this morning). He sits down, glowering and muttering to himself. When we sat at a train station for a couple of minutes a stop or two later, he gets up and starts pacing and swearing again. I'm thinking, great; the pacers are usually the ones that are armed. He sticks his head out of the train and starts screaming to close the doors, he hasn't got all day, and I'm waiting for this guy to go postal as I sit there, knitting, trying to ignore him.

We get to Queens Plaza and the train sits again. There's an express across the track also sitting. The guy storms out of the V train (the train I'm on) and gets on the express train - just in time for the V to close doors and take off first.

Karma is a boomerang, my friends. And I'm going to salute it with a nice big sun salutation every morning.

I hate creepy straphangers like that...it's cool when something like that happens.

Made sure to do my breath of fire this morning, since I was at my mom's and there was no space for yoga.
