protest signs 2

It's not really "2" but i managed to figure out one way to embed the video in a post.

protest signs

Now i can't remember how to put videos on these posts... yikes as it been that long since i have done this?!?!?!

I've seen other montages like this but i really like this one.

My favourite are the "LOL" and "I'm with stupid" signs. I also really liked "Jesus had two dads. He turned out fine"

epi-motion

This is just really catchy and hilarious all at the same time! Plus it is set in San Francisco! I have yet to make it to that beach. Maybe in February or maybe March. . .



A better quality version can be found here.

running barefoot

I am busy getting ready to go to Canada tomorrow but I have found a moment between laundry, making cookies for Ami's school tomorrow, packing and making dinner to post this.

Here is the article that goes with it, I have been wondering about barefoot running for a while as my old neighbour spent most of his time in barefeet and he also did running barefoot with his wife. The problem with a barefooted neighbour is that it is hard to enforce the idea that shoe wearing for 4 year olds is sometimes mandatory...
My neighbour had Vibram Five Fingers shoes which made him look a bit gorilla-ish and yet cool!

dancing with any body

This article is about a guy named Gregg Mozgala who has cerebral palsy and transformed his movement abilities through working with a choreographer on a dance piece. The method the choreographer used was her own intuition but it sounds remarkably similar to the Anat Baniel Method- paying close attention to your own body, learning new ways to move with out using force etc etc. It is an inspiring story and adds to the growing proof that the adult brain has remarkable capacity to change and grow. Imagine what could be possible for so many people with limitations- either known or unknown! Most interesting.
To add to the 6 degrees (or less) of separation, my friend Martha knows the son of the doctor interviewed in the video clip!

I love this singer


Thanks to my friend Mireille who alerted me to this video I am now Tuva's biggest fan! Her voice is so pristine and honest and it sounds just so darn easy. I want some of that!! Plus can it get any better than Handel?

awesome fox

Feldenkrais at work

This is Moshe Feldenkrais at work on a woman with whiplash. It is remarkable for the work he does with the woman and also for the way he treats her - perhaps it wouldn't be tolerated today!!

A fascinating inside view of us. literally.
It certainly convinces me to move my body. How about you?!
