When it comes to clothing, I'm a believer that multi-tasking is great. For instance, while studying abroad in college, I bought a piece of fabric in Kenya. First, I hung it on the wall in my dorm room, then I wore it as a sarong. Next, it became a tablecloth, and, finally, a scarf. Snicker all you like about a gal who wants to wear a tablecloth around town, but I call it being "resourceful." (Shhhh, if you're quiet you can almost hear the exasperated sigh of Om Mama).
It was an added layer of warmth, as a skirt, while climbing Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire.
Then, it came in handy as a disguise when I had to run from authorities. Kidding . . . It was a useful hood to block the wind at the top of the mountain.
Naturally, it makes a nice scarf.
It also works as a vest, which Om Gal intern Megan thought was pretty nifty. (She took this photo).
For those who get chilly in sivasana (body temperature tends to drop during meditation), it's a cozy, light blanket.
Or a meditation shawl.
What do you think, OGs [om guys and gals]? Which function is your favorite? When is multi-tasking good? When is bad, very bad?
