Learning a language can get a bit addictive, when the learning method is so much fun 🙂
Too busy for, distracted from drawing/painting these days (a family project), I thought this is a useful way to spend some lost moments and it could also come in handy when I (hopefully get to) travel to Italy to see and study art.
Then this post came on my Facebook wall, which makes Italy even more interesting. If you haven’t seen this yet, you’ll be amazed:
This was on the cover of an art magazine and I decided to copy it with my new set of chalks. A few colours were right there, so this was a nice practice. I remember working in the garage, it was cold, but that was kind of nice. It was one of those times that you really enjoy the work and forget about everything. And I love Macke.
Since January 2013, at the age of 58,5 I started with Ashtanga yoga. The first few months learning about the Primary Series as much as I could, practicing every day depending on my energy levels and building it up to Half Primary for 4 to 6 times a week. There are great instruction dvd’s and youtube videos that enable you to learn the series without risk for injuries – if you inform yourself well. This practice now became part of my healing path (from ulcerative colitis) and I believe it helps tremendously. After a bad relapse early last month (due to adding certain foods too soon) I’m back to Half Primary today. It was a nice coincidence, that I found this post on twitter yesterday, so I followed this class this morning:
There aren’t many vids with just the Half Primary series; enjoy! 🙂
