Slack

28 08 2012

I’ve been rather slack with my blog this past week, but in life I have managed to walk nearly 3 miles a day, do daily yoga, and get some housework done- as well as find all of the girl’s dance supplies for around 50 bucks (brand new we would have been looking at close to 200) thanks to eBay, and have begun the flow of the school week. Alden and I are working on art, letters, counting, doing some reading and games- and trying to fit in some blogging time as well. This week’s priorities are: remaining eBay auctions listed, more blogging, tarot and morning ritual meditation habit, daily yoga/dance as well as continued walks to school, Todd’s birthday (planing a special day for him, he’s turning 43!) and hopefully, some art time as well. My best friend had her baby last night (as well as another friend from high school!) at home, breech!! I’m so proud of her! I hope the storm dissipates in the Gulf, but lots of safe thoughts to my friends evacuating New Orleans right now, and protection to my favorite city!

Today was filled with green smoothies, rain soaked in sunshine, aquamarine playdough and some further research in chinese medicine and macrobiotics. Since I slowly started eating more raw, vegan and macrobiotic and have nearly eliminated all caffeine, sugar and tobacco, I have felt a calm awareness that I forgot existed. I’m taking each day in strides with the growing heaps of projects, and with everyday that I am loving my body and mind deeper, I am less intimidated by all that lies ahead. Projects galore! I have just been offered a position as an apprentice dance instructor at an aerial and pole art studio. This will include intensive training over the next few weeks to begin teaching two one hour classes a day monday through friday within the next four to six weeks. I will also be constructing a fusion class combining what I am learning with what I already know. I get access to the studio for choreography, which I have been longing and lusting for immensely for quite some time now! There are some guerrilla playground children’s theater projects in the works, more on that later, though I will say: revamping and presentation of the ten principles in a suitable manner, cross culturally, through performances for children. Clown Cleanup Crew (C cubed) will follow each performance with a MOOP sweep of the playground area. But I digress, instead of listing all my projects I will just say that I am very proud of myself for not losing the patience or faith in the process, and for doing what I need for myself to keep on track and not feel intimidated. This is an interesting new chapter, and I am enjoying every moment. And now, kiddies, it’s that time again for the nearly five o’clock kid time and dinner prep, so I will end this with:
