They say you cant teach old dogs new tricks but I just learned one and I'm old. So it's not true the saying I mean about old dogs. Funny that. I know other old dogs and I watch them and I don't see them learn even one new trick like I did so I must be a different kind of old dog. SIT UP someone kept saying and that's what I did that was the new trick even though it's silly but I don't say that. The other one even sillier is ROLL OVER. My god what do they take me for its so stupid. I fixed them though the one that kept saying ROLL OVER I mean when I said YOU GO FIRST. And what do you know the person who kept saying ROLL OVER stopped saying that to me and from then on the only trick I did was SIT UP because when I did I got something to eat and I like to eat even though I'm old and getting fat now. Goes to show you you're better off just doing what you want and saying to hell with the everything else especially when there's nothing in it for you after all.
Homework. It's boring, annoying and wastes our time-leading to procrastination. You might end up watching funny cat videos or on Instagram. Whatever happens make sure you're not falling behind on work. Everyone finds it irritating but if it's in a subject you love it should be fun. Stay organised, motivated and positive throughout this "education phase". I have learnt that procrastination not only stops you from finishing work soon, it also leads to irritation-why didn't I finish my work now? Anyway I get homework loads in Chinese class, I do it ASAP. I don't want to risk getting in trouble or failing the subject. Always stay on track with assignments. I know no one wants to but we all have to at some point. I procrastinate all the time but I try to do homework at the same time too...
Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Marie. She lived in her parents' cottage with her little sister called Anna. Marie loved hearing stories about the street the cottage was on-Sapphire Street. Before Marie went to school, she stayed home with Anna and played. Marie's mother never got tired of telling both children stories of the past. Marie and Anna learned lots-when the street was built, how their parents chose this house in their early 20s and many other things. Other than the stories, there were lots of antique/vintage dolls that were very pretty. Both girls owned a few rag dolls which they slept with. Marie and Anna were only 2 years apart so they made up their own stories which neither were too old or young to listen too. The End for now...
she is isn't she?
damn, let me start with what i was thinking.
she's a dancer!
practicalities aside and meaning and tieing it all up. she is a movement artist of some kind. she moves. she's aware of the body. and there is so much movement in this piece. of people yes; parkour, walking, climbing and feeling all those moments truly.
but the movement of the elements of the water first and foremost. the water's dance. a kind of graceful unknown. she moves and she knows how to and she is observant of your steps and posture. she wants you to go away with that same awareness. a kind of map of you, this place and it all meshed together.
but go easy on the cheese. yes, go easy and be vocal that the cheese is there for the taking.
And what is it about walking.
That to make it feel effortless your shoes must be good. But what about making an effort and taking note. Today I have worked on the outsides of the soles of my feet to avoid the new piece of rubber on my shoes that needs wearing in. It's sore you see. That part is sore. And so feet isn't all it's about. I've been walking with a heavy bag. Clearly I have been ill equipped to take walking to a level of pleasure today. It's been physical and tiresome. The walking is a drag. The main drag. That's what we need to think about here. Routes and pathways and threads and unexplored squeeze through avenues.
