На прошлой неделе все как-то думала о деньгах, повышениях, продвижениях, и тому подобному... а в воскресение посмотрела очередную серию из Мастера и Маргариты... как раз про выступление Воланда "... люди как люди. Любят деньги, но ведь это всегда было... " и после этого эпизода с падающими в толпу деньгами все мои денежные переживания стали смешны :)

9:19 pm - today
I kind of forgot about lj for a while, but couple of days ago I felt like writing again… but what about?... maybe just about today:
I took an Iyengar class today. It was quite challenging but teacher was really good with adjustments… at some point I felt like a kid, believing him so much - “give me your head”, “just relax your neck” ... it was nice : )

What is a possibility of booking a vacation, and on the same day getting a citizenship appointment letter with the date set during that vacation?... it’s one of those coincidences...

5:29 pm - thought...
When you see some ‘ego stuff’ in other people… it’s your ego looking at their ego… when you see light and love, that’s a real you looking at real them.

The most amazing thing in the world is when two people connect.

I'm not sure why I feel like writing about this... but anyway
I took a yoga class tonight. There is always some background music playing at yoga classes... so today our teacher put Russian church music. (Господи помилуй, Господи помилуй, Господи помилуй...) So I got up and asked her to change the music. Maybe it was strange... but I just felt like it was wrong. And after that I couldn't pay any attention to that yoga class... kept asking myself, Was I right? Was I wrong? This is probably why I'm writing this... I don't know... Was I right? Was I wrong?

10:20 pm - : )
I haven’t written for so long… I don’t even know where to start… The most memorable events in the last 2 months…
- Going to Lowen and Navarro concert at Kulak's Woodshed with Stumpy. I guess, spending some time with Stumpy was really cool too. I’ve got some notes about that. “Your happiness is within you”; “Try to prevent yourself from getting mad” ; "Leave your work at work - breath 5 times in the car at the parking lot and let it go..."
- Taking yoga classes. I really like them, especially Jon’s. I like how he says not to struggle. “It’s not what you get, it’s what you can let go of”
- I’m still struggling at work… but it's not all that bad. I’ve learn a lot of new stuff, and done a lot. I’m still learning to be patient. I think it’s much better now, but I’m not sure if I’ll stay there.
- And once in a while I feel really happy … just because I feel that everything around me is the way it supposed to be. Nice… : )

4:19 pm - whale
I saw a whale at Laguna Beach today. I actually almost missed it, because I was taking photos of the view I always take pictures of… and them I turned around and walked a little bit… and there was a whale … he jumped out of the water, and swam away… so I didn’t get a chance to take a picture. I think I was lucky to see it though :) That made me think, that to see something amazing, you just need walk couple of steps away from your regular route : )

11:12 pm - Butterfly Effect
I watched Butterfly Effect on TV tonight… it’s gotten to me.

I had lunch with Pete, Rob, and Mike at B-a ... who knows, maybe I'll work there… Rob said that coming to B-a was like going back in time for him… that is too crazy…

I think you can learn something about a person if you have lunch with him at shabu-shabu restaurant :)

There are no victims.
Everything is well ordered; things happen as they should.
Random events are guided by a higher wisdom.
Chaos is an illusion; there is total order to all events.
Nothing happens without a reason.

4:07 pm - Happy New Year
It’s already 2005 in Moscow… and we still have half of the day of 2004 in CA. And this is the first time in 8 years I forgot to celebrate Moscow’s New Year… what is that about?

So anyway… 2004 … Here is what I think about when I think about this year.

Two men I really care about are both my good friends now. It’s definitely wasn’t expected, but it is good.
I wish I was a better mom. And unfortunately I can’t add anything here.
My work problem got resolved by themselves when the company got sold. That helped me to see that work is just work, and I don’t want it to be the most important part of my life ever.
I read good books. The best ones are “Taming your Gremlin” by Rick Carson, “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay, and “Dispossessed” by Ursula Le Guin.
And I here on the livejournal I found such amazing people. I think my internet friends really helped me this year.

Happy New Year!

I’ve realized, that I can easily hurt a person, if I feel, that I was hurt by him/her. That’s quite wrong.

7:52 pm - :)
I had a really good trip to Denver. It feels like it was just what I needed. I always get exactly what I need (not what I expect though). Sometimes it’s a room with the king size bed… and sometimes it’s a handy-cap room… What is good about handy-cap room? It is so spacious that you can dance : )

7:47 pm - Where am I?
It’s interesting how everything is turning out.
At some point I felt quite empty and didn’t find anything better than work a lot to fill that emptiness. All I could think about was my work. I got completely nuts on that. And now the company got sold, so everything I’ve worked on for the last 3 years is probably going to be thrown out. I’m kind of okay with it, since I’ve gone though exactly the same stuff before.
I’m surprised about the timing… right when I was so filled with working… it all came to the end. So again I’m kind of forced to stop and look around, and re-evaluate where am I. Where am I? The truth is I feel really lost now. But I’d like to find my way out of where I am.

I walked into a small art-gallery today because of the sculpture I saw in their window.
It turned out to be one of Bronze Sculptures by Erte. Unbelievably nice sales guy gave me a brochure and told me about the author. (Interestingly enough Erte is from Russia)
