Creepy Camel Smile

Tonight was 5pm with Stephanie.  My friend Chris was practicing next to me.  The one I wrote about the other day, who says I give him comfort just by being next to him.  Of course, I receive the same from him, so we feed off of each other.  I had a great practice overall and was feeling especially supple in the spine.  By the time we got to camel I really focused on how I got into the posture.  When I put my hands on my "hips" I made sure my arms were not sticking out like chicken wings.  Then I took a deep breath, pushed my hips toward the mirror put my head all of the way back and eased into the backbend.  By the time I got to the part to put my hands on my heels, it was not a far reach by any means.  I breathed, pushed my hips toward the mirror more and pictured my spine being like a waterfall.  I suddenly realized I could see my own mat and towel!  I've been that deep before when I used to practice daily and do challenges, but it's been over a year since I've been able to get that far in.   I was so happy that I almost laughed out loud and when I came out of the posture I had a huge grin on my face that actually looked kind of comical.  Well, maybe even a bit creepy, since I was hanging upside down at the start of the smile.  I lay in savasana afterwards and the smile remained on my face.  I felt like I had found bliss!
