|Someone's front yard flower garden|
It was cloudy to start, but it has now become mostly sunny out there, and I'm filled with satisfaction at having my walk done and a whole day of enjoyment ahead. Yesterday I finished the book I was reading, A Tale for the Time Being, and I was actually bereft because it was done. Although I struggled to get into the book, by the time I finished Part I, the characters and story had come alive for me. That link is to a New York Times book review that will tell you about it.
Many people I've talked to weren't able to get into the book, and I understand why. But if you do read it all the way through, I don't see how you could fail to fall in love with it. But that's just me. I guess you either love it or hate it.

GENTLE YOGA/BACKCARE is for people with back, neck, knee or shoulder problems, are plus-sized, elderly, or weak and need a slow paced class.And Level I might not give me the chance to put my leg behind my head (Laifong teaches more advanced classes, too, obviously) but this level is designed to provide a balanced program of flexibility, core strength, postural alignment, breathing, relaxation and awareness. This coming semester I will take one Gentle II class and Laifong's Level I. Maybe I'll regain the flexibility I had when I was younger. It's amazing what the body can do, even when it's got some mileage on it!
GENTLE YOGA II is for students who have “graduated” from the gentle yoga/backcare class, but still need gentle exercises due to old injuries or physical restrictions.
