Imbolc Waxing Bloodroot Moon
Some of our front yard is visible! This is the first time in over 125 days, maybe more. A friendly patch of brown lawn and the base of a spruce, an amur maple and a pine tree. The bloodroot cannot be far behind.
Two tours today. A Japan tour that reminded me why I love the Asian art so much. Great kids. I prejudged them as potentially inattentive, non-talkers. Boy was I wrong. We barely got past the teahouse. A second, Titian tour, had about 30 folks. Again an engaged and interested group. The Titian exhibit has been a pleasure to tour, too. I love the Renaissance anyhow and these are great images. Love that Bassano and the Lotto, too.
Kate and I will hit our first Body Flow class tonight. I don’t know what to expect. It’s a combination of T’ai Ch’i, yoga and pilates. To music. When I found out it was set to music, I almost decided not to go. I’ve never done group exercise and doing it to current dance songs doesn’t seem to add much. But, we’ll see.
Japan. Hard to know what to say. As the big history guy I’ve been listening to off and on over the last couple of months keeps saying, our developed civilizations are so complex that they are very fragile. Japan is teaching that lesson in a too vivid, too painful way.
