Um, it’s a pear.
The new year is a time when people take stock of their routines. They make (and break) resolutions, many of them having to do with diet and exercise. Come to tai chi class. Flowing Dragon Tai Chi. If tai chi class isn’t an option for you, find another way to stretch and strengthen your muscles and joints. Swimming is a good low impact exercise, and (if you have the right partner) so is dancing. Go outside. Walk. Hug a tree. Hug a person. Whatever you do, I wish you health and happiness in 2016.
Better late than never (I guess) 2015’s Halloween video offers my take on the classic creepy doll theme.
I am not a fan of musical theater. The only time I want someone singing dialog at me is in an opera being sung in a language I don’t understand. That way the human voice becomes another musical instrument, and I don’t have to try to process the cringe-worthy lyrics. However, I saw the very smart and funny The Story Of A Story last night. You want to go to there!
Walking along the lakefront on a nice fall day, I saw the TSNY Chicago school at Belmont Harbor and couldn’t resist. Thanks to excellent instruction from Birgit, Annie and Jason, I managed to eke out a back flip and a catch and release (yeah, like a fish) at the first class. High-flyin’ fun!
My one and only scifi story, “The Wind,” is in the latest issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly.
