unmistakable. I am ready for it! Apples are back in my local farmer's market. Figs are still a plenty.
The squirrels are busy in the pine and oak trees. My yard is littered with chewed pine cones. And soon they will start to bury acorns all over the yard, including my potted plants!
Fall is a transition from the expansive energy of summer to a more inward quiet time. According to my acupuncturist and TCM tradition, this season change is the most challenging for the body. This is a good time not to over do, particularly as we get older. Been there, done that, so I now approach fall more carefully using the time for nourishing the body. Happy to be back with Feldenkrais classes. This movement technique freshens my outlook with new discovery, and gently informs my yoga practice....along with my creative practice.
On another note, I had the good fortune to see the exhibit "Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line", a retrospective of his drawings, at the Getty Center. Superb! I love the rawness of the images, half finished, that catch the figure he was observing. Great opportunity to view so many wonderful drawings in one place, most that were new to me. He drew models everyday, and was a master draftsman, allowing those images to inspire his paintings. Watch this video about the exhibit.
My own work continues...new piece almost completed which I will soon show you. I have been working on flags for the Prayer Flag Project, too. Follow this link to learn more.
