Happy Sunday to you all. I will be heading into school this week to begin helping in the classroom and organizing the library. Summer has passed by quickly but I feel well rested and have accomplished many of the things on my to-do list. I really can’t wait to see the children. They can change so much over the summer and they just love to tell stories about their summer activities.
I have spent a good part of this week at “summer camp”. There is a method of somatic education work called Feldenkrais. I started taking lessons in the 90’s and somehow fell away from it. Last year, when I injured my knee, a friend suggested I see a colleague of her’s for some body work. It turned out she is a Feldenkrais practioner. I had one of those “aha” moments. Why hadn’t I thought of that?
Anyway, LeeAnn helped me with my injury and I started going to Awareness Through Movement classes again. This last week we had five days of intensive work with a master teacher. Fantastic! If you have issues with pain and/or injury or you practice Yoga, Tai Chi or martial arts I would suggest you check it out.
As for books, I picked up a large stack from the library and am working on a Library Loot post. I also added several books to my to-be-read list including By The Sea by Veronique Olmi thanks to chasing bawa and Mosquito by Roma Tearne thanks to Eva. Right now I am reading Kings of the Earth by Jon Clinch and The Passage by Justin Cronin. How about you? What are you reading today? What do you plan on reading this week?
