Lemons and yoga

So what do a lemon tree and  yoga have in common? Well, let’s see… first I have to admit my love for both. And the beautiful scenes of the lemon grove in the new movie “Lemon Tree” by  Ira Riklis is absolutely amazing.  I haven’t seen the entire film yet but know I will love it already just because of the lemon trees.  After trying to grow lemons for years inside my tiny apartment,  with little sun and never even a tiny yellow bud,  I can truly appreciate that beautiful grove of yellow diamonds.

Lemons are a lot like yoga – you have to have a taste for it. People will think you are a bit wacky for loving them. But them again I’ve always been a bit wacky, so why start caring about that now. As your love for these yellow guys expands you have to try every variation of food item even made with them. With yoga,  you want to try and learn every yoga pose ever done. I’ve  learned however, that eating lemons can backfire on you if you eat too many. Losing your sense of taste for a few days can really teach you moderation. Trying too many  yoga poses before you are ready can have the same impact. You learn the fear of never tasting again or becoming that middle age woman who has “back problems” and is always whining about it.

Makes me wonder if Ira Riklis eats lemons or does yoga? Or both?
