I saw this story first on the awesome Debbie Phillips’ uber-nourishing website, Women on Fire.

At least, that’s where I think I saw it.  Then I realized she found it in the New York Times, which has a lot of thought-provoking, touching stories about relationships in this feature.  But this particular one knocked me out. .. in a class by itself, I thought.

And for our peeps – who have no small amount of experience with yoga and skeptical spouses who can be somewhat opaque – well, there’s just so much to identify with in this story… and be moved and inspired by.  (Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s written so beautifully, either by this gifted writer named Karen S. Schneider.) 

I don’t know how I missed it the first time around, but delighted I got a second chance with it. Do treat yourself and click on this link to a gem of a personal story – you’ll be glad you did.
