Funny bones...


Friday, January 04, 2013

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

God seldom delivers virtues all wrapped in a package and ready for
use. Rather He puts us in situations where by His help we can develop
those virtues.

C. R. Findley

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

We had the first day of clown workshiop yesterday - I learned a lot! That some people have "funny bones" it is really easy for them to appear funny, while others have a hard time. I also learned that I have to find my own clown, I cannot just be the avergae clown, I have to be myself with a clown twist... or something.

I donīt wish to be an actor ...I think. I wish to be me, with extra everything to use on stage.

Daughter participated in group exercises but did not dare to stand alone in front of us. That is ok, she is twelve and really scared that we would think she was bad. I canīt see where she gets that idea from but I know that had it been a group of twelveyears olds she would have dared. It is the feeling that we are all grownups and "Know-it-all" that makes her unsure and it is only a queastion about being consistant and let her do it at her own pace... and maybe find a group that she feels more at ease with although clowngroups does not grow on trees.

What virtues did I develope? I felt comfortable, did not feel scared of not being good enoug, in fact I did not feel much of judgement at all, I was just playing with the tools our leader gave us and trying to understand how to work them to get the best result.

On day left, I am sooo looking forward to it!

    So glad it was a worthwhile experience and you are looking forward to more! I think you do so well with your daughter; a wealth of experiences and no pressure to perform. You have good insights.

    Like so many talents, for some people it is also a discipline. I think finding the clown part of yourself is like an art, with practice to support it. My MIL was a clown. She was a very kind, loving person, but not naturally humorous. She had to develop routines. Cool of her, really.

    Looking at that one pic in your photo gallery with the funny face, you seem to be quite a clown already!
How did your daughter like the hairdresser and the perm?
