Hi, it's been a while, as usual. Lots has happened- the first that comes to mind is our trip to the US in March. Loma was worked on, mom was visited, Pepi was missed. We've been back for a month and I've been more focused on art and the Center lately. I'll be participating in a dorky event called "Dorset Art Weeks" in hopes I can sell some work and let people know I am here.
I also joined the local gym and enjoy it, partly because I feel so out of place there. I feel "in place" so much of the time it's a novel feeling to be out of it.
Since I don't know what I'm doing particularly, I just sort of wander around to different machines and rooms trying various things until I've hit the hour mark. Yesterday I discovered a static piece of equipment intended for pulling up one's legs to the chest repeatedly and I really liked that.
I went to the sauna with Tamsin this morning before heading to the Center and even swum a few laps in the chlorine pool. I'm craving the sea but haven't made it in for a swim in a bit- I'll be changing that soon.
Today I sawed a big board in half with a handsaw and painted it with chalkboard paint. My aim is to write a message each week for passers-by, so I'll have to start brainstorming.
