I’ve been going places lately. Flight to New England; road trip to Austin; road trip to New Orleans; quick trips into Houston. And it’s starting to feel fairly normal.
And nice. Nice because I’m connecting—in person—with people I really care about. I’ve seen friends and mentors, children and grandchildren, cousins and clients, and people I’ve never met before. I wouldn’t consider myself an extrovert, but it sure has been nice to get out and see real people, live and in person.
We shared good food, special moments, and ordinary moments. My son’s rock band got back together and did a show to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their latest album—and the release of that same album on vinyl. I saw two of my granddaughters head off to their dance class—looking very cute in their dance clothes. We celebrated someone’s birthday with brunch at a classic New Orleans restaurant. I heard Louisiana accents, and a jazz trio. I received a fabulous Feldenkrais lesson from one of my absolutely favorite Feldenkrais practitioners.
I’m feeling very lucky. And especially lucky because there are so many interesting, kind, fun people in my life. Life is rich.
For those of you who celebrate, L’shana Tova. May you be inscribed for a good year. And if you don’t celebrate Rosh Hashanah, it still could be a nice time to reflect on resolving old “stuff” and looking toward new beginnings. May you enjoy the richness of life, and have a happy new year.
By the way, last time I checked, there are still spots available in tomorrow’s These Feet Are Made for Walking online or in person at the Jung Center of Houston.
Our Tuesday midday online Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement is also happening tomorrow.
I’m going more places soon, so no classes or private sessions from Wednesday, October 5 through Sunday, October 16.
