I enjoyed the company of the pictured dragonfly throughout my entire yoga practice on Lake Placid this morning. He (or she) was so still I was certain this prehistoric survivor had taken the name of our final pose, Savasana or corpse pose, literally. When I reached out to touch him however, he calmly lifted off the dock and lit on a nearby post, clearly wishing to be left alone to enjoy the view.
