Zen Fly Fishing
by Karin Miller
I was recently asked by someone I had just met, "What do you do?" I paused before responding because that was a loaded question. Where do I start? What don't I do? How to answer this question? A list of optional responses flashed in my mind in that microsecond of a moment. I function as the glue that holds my family together. I'm a mother and do all that motherly stuff - even with a college student. I'm a wife, and although that's completely different from being a mother, there' s a nurturing, loving piece that's kind of similar. I do education with 3, 4 and 5 year olds with special needs and delays. I also do a fly fishing gear company.
Finally I responded, "I do yoga and fly fishing." Yoga and fly fishing are not what I've always done. In the past I would have answered that question with "I run."
