Working on not missing so many sunrises. 📷
Jackie suggested that I make these sourdough cinnamon rolls instead of having her bake me an apple pie. So I did. But I’ll want an apple pie soon enough anyway.
Oak trees are gettin’ busy. # pollen
I’m torn. It’s finally dry enough that I could probably go out on the patio and squeeze in a jump rope workout. Or I could just have another beer.
Did a good job at the distancing thing. When anybody looked like they might get close, I ran away. #PolarBeat
The arboretum doesn’t have a formal geezer hour the way grocery stores do, but we figured it wouldn’t be too crowded early in the morning, which turned out to be correct. I posted 6 other photos, but this one is by far the best.
Sitting on the patio with my sweetie @jackieLbrewer. And, of course, beer.
Here I am, wearing one of the facemasks Jackie made, ready to go to the grocery store, or the mail room, or the laundry, or whatever.
Because no one much wants to read about my exercise/movement practice, I’ve been doing a lot of my writing about it in Esperanto (so no one much can read about it). Here’s the latest: https://esperanto.philipbrewer.net/2020/04/ekzerco-dum-pandemio/
I was talking to my brother about how I might best serve my students during the emergency, and the topic of on-line classes came up (as it has for everyone who teaches some sort of movement-based activity), and my brother pointed out that I should have been turning my study into a studio suitable for producing and streaming on-line classes.
(I meant to mention this in my previous post, but forgot.)
Sadly, I have not done so. If I were to try to stream classes from here, they’d mostly consist of pictures of the vast amount of clutter in my study, so they’d look like this:
I’ll spare you that for the time being.
But, if the emergency continues, I suppose it’s possible that I’ll get my act together to tidy up my study to the point where it could sort-of be a studio.
Watch this space!
In the meantime, there are a variety of videos of me and other people doing taiji and qi gong at communitytaichi.org (a few recent videos are here). If you want to see videos of me in particular, there are few taken by a couple of my students here.
