It's not often I find myself asking the age old question, "Which line will move faster?" In addition to giving up rushing a long time ago, I now live in a tiny town and rarely experience what I would call a crowd.

The other day I went down to the big city to run some errands. I found myself in a particularly busy coffee shop wanting to buy a coffee and use the bathroom. The queues leading up to the counter and the restroom were both super long, and I struggled to decide which line to choose and when. After choosing the long line of ladies leading to The Ladies, I was grateful to realize all of a sudden that being in line is actually a lot like being on a yoga mat.

Once you're in the line, there's nothing to do. Being in the line is what you're doing. As my teacher Peter would say, "There's actually no such thing as waiting; there's only awareness of each moment."
