Support efforts to protect our Atlantic Shores!
There is strong opposition to drilling for oil off the Atlantic Coast in the Outer Banks.
Dare County and some of its towns and other organizations tied to tourism have written resolutions opposed to the idea. On Monday, a record crowd turned out to comment on a federal proposal for oil and gas exploration while a group of opponents met nearby. Over four hours, 670 people attended the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management meeting - most of whom opposed drilling.
The Southern Environmental Law Center is opposing offshore drilling. You have until midnight today to submit your comments to the US government at

I have been working on my peacock yoga pose. This is a challenging pose for me. I enjoy teaching yoga classes and often have students come up to me after class asking me "how long will it take for me to learn this (blank) pose?" The answer is everything takes practice and patience. As I continue with my yoga journey, I realize that I will never master yoga. There are too many variations in asanas (poses) and there are always opportunities for improvement. So, enjoy the journey and know that the joy comes from the practice.
