Read some Canguilhem - friend of the French Resistance and thesis advisor to Michel Foucault. Threw away the introduction and understood some Canguilhem. Cheered at the constant reference to Alexandre Koyré, another historian of science who wrote a great book called, From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe. Wish I had been in this position this morning as I toiled fruitlessly and then ran off to a yoga class that was afterall cancelled.

Oh I missed him too.

I'm pretty sure that kind of breathing is proper yogic practice, it's just something I refuse to do. I like it when my body is silent. I also liked my yoga clothes and been looking forward to some mirror time, alas.
