Looking For A Home Now

(the cat)
was instructed by me to stop by the house early this morning
so that I could take him to a safe and wonderful place:
Santa Fe Humane Society

First; he stopped by (our bedroom window) at 4:30 a.m.

Then; he came back at 7:30 a.m.

He does not wear a watch, so I can't be too mad...

After a loud and yowlie car ride,
Bob is enjoying life at the Humane Society.

The next five days will be spent
checking for ID chips,
checking reports of lost cats,
enjoying a bubble bath,
visiting with Dr. Vet for shots,
seeing if he has a cold, or flu, or fleas
and to be "tutored" (OK - it only RHYMES with "tutored"),
and after five days Bob will go out and meet the public.

Let me know if you want to be first on the list.

Bob survives
without a bed
(for the most part) without people
without regular meals.

He has learned that every day
he must protect himself
from fierce opponents.
He is probably less than a year old.
Weighs less than 10 pounds.

But he has a big heart,
and a nice singing voice.
I hope to convince him to come with me
to the local Humane Society.
Unless you can help?

Challenge of the Day

Sit on the floor
cross your legs
interlace your right toes to your left toes
or your right hand to your right foot,
or right hand to right foot and left hand to left foot;
thumb between big and second toe and on from there...

now try to move from sitting
to laying on your side
to laying on your back
to sitting again,
(without using your arms?)
and do not unlace what you have woven
during the transitions.

Another day of Feldenkrais training

Fingers and Hands

Imagine moving your hand/hands in the pattern of a jellyfish
or imagine grasping the shape of a hand-sized bell;
over and over,
focusing only on that move
while on your back
or your side
or lying on your front
or standing
or walking
for 5-6 hours
feeling the movements around that movement
the lengthening of the fingers
but not touching each other
curving around an imagined shape
sensing the bend of the wrist
the movement around the elbow
like a breath,
all day
rolling from one position to another
with focus on your hand/hands
and repeating
only that movement.

Welcome to Feldenkrais.

Another two week Feldenkrais Training Session has begun.
