Y is for Yin & Yang!

APRIL-2013-CALENDAR-001I’m so excited to join in the A to Z blog hop!!! Truly, I regard it as a terrific challenge and a wonderful kick-start to my new website. My topic for the entire 26 days will be romance, particularly erotic romance. My structure will be as follows: I am going to first list the pertinent words for the day and then discuss one of them in alphabetical order, of course.

Y: yummy, yielding, yin, yang, and yoni.

The above are my list of sexy and/or erotic and/or romantic Y words. Feel free to chime in with your own!

For the twenty-fifth day of the A to Z blog hop challenge – I choose the words Yin and Yang. Because the Chinese concept has always fascinated me and I’ve always wondered if we in the western world might not be better off paying more attention to balance in life. We all seem so obsessed with things – another pair of shoes, a newer better car. Shouldn’t we pay more attention to our inner selves? After all, we can’t take any of our stuff with us. On my deathbed, I don’t believe I’ll be contemplating how many houses I’ve owned. What’s your thoughts?

Yin and Yang: (in Chinese philosophy and religion) two principles, one negative, dark, and feminine (yin) and one positive, bright, and masculine (yang) whose interaction influences the destinies of creatures and things.

  1. I did yin-yang today, too! But I talked about how to use it in character development in novels. Synchroncity (or is it just the paucity of y words?).

  2. Jianne, thank you for linking to me, how kind of you. I think the Eastern philosophies have much to teach us. The idea of balance in something that I seek. I had been meditating and kept it up for 106 days but then went to visit friends in Florida. There was nowhere that I could do it in private. Because of that lapse, I haven’t gotten back on. Now that I think about it, I should have tried harder to have a way to keep doing it. Now I must get back to it. Thanks for the nudge!

    • Hi Fran,
      I’ve been meaning to start meditating forever and just never got started. This week I’m at a conference and I’m going to start. I bought a guided meditation DVD and plan to use it every morning.
      It’s ironical your meditation stopped in Florida – that’s where I live. Great to meet you.
