Last fall Jackie dug up this whole flowerbed and spread the bulbs, corms, and rhizomes out over double the space, so I’m hoping for an even more spectacular display this year than last. #lilycount 1
Sharing my lawn chair with a handsome jumping spider.
After days not running because of a sore foot and crappy weather, I got out today—and then back indoors just ahead of the rain. #PolarBeat
There was just a little bit of coffee left in the flask, so I got one of our really little cups to drink it out of. 📷 ☕️
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.
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.
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.
