elephant’s Best of the Week: Holiday Edition.

Via on Dec 15, 2011

Horrible Yoga Gift Ideas, Sexy Jews, Good Buddhist at Christmas, Mark Twain’s Bad Advice to Good Children…

How my Yoga Mat saved my life when I got hit by a Truck while riding my Bike.

Three Takeaways from getting hit by a Truck on my Bike.

Here’s the set up: I’m riding along in the bike lane on a three-lane stretch of University Ave, thinking about whatever I’m thinking about.

I’m wearing a bright neon orange hunter’s hat, which I like to wear because I’m a big guy on a big bike and it helps car drivers see me. I’m wearing a red wool Pendleton coat, I think, and gloves and there’s little neon flags hanging off my bike. In the back I have a black milk basket that holds my laptop (my life, my business, which I can’t afford to replace [again—two weeks ago a gent spilled coffee on it and booked it, leaving me without a functioning laptop for better part of a week, and $1,000 the poorer]) and my big oversize un-cut 100-inch or something Manduka yoga mat. I’m on the way to the Yoga Pod, where I, Natalie (elephant’s part-time staffer) and our six interns will do yoga, sponsored by elephant.

A truck wheels out of an alley to my left…read the exciting conclusion at elephantjournal.com! Will I die? Will I learn profound pseudo-spiritual lessons worthy of a Hallmark Card?

Yours in the Four Reminders,

Waylon Lewis
