This year I decided to help out rather than run. I zoomed over to help with distribution of race kits immediately after work. I got my course assignment for the 10km (I was helping to marshal the race and spent 3 hours helping to hand out race k... Read more

The science of every day.

I tend to be the one who does home work with “Little Bug”. He is challenged when it comes to reading and writing. He is quite bright but his little brain seems to get ahead of his fingers for writing. Each week he has a homework assignment. We s... Read more

As I was browsing through my emails this am I came across a link post by a friend that suggested sometimes we tend to over think things. This idea found itself tucked nicely in with the idea that the same friends parents had screwed up so badly ... Read more

We held the memorial for my nephew yesterday (Easter Saturday). It was very nice and went very well. Organizing and preparing have require quite a bit if time and I think been a useful diversion and activity for my brother and his wife. There is... Read more

I did not sleep much last night; well, even less than normal. I had to put some images into video file for the memorial for my brother’s son. My brother, his wife and their daughter are coming to town this weekend for a memorial service here (m... Read more

Hope no one will mind but today I am reposting to past blog. Never sure if the forth wise man is a Christmas or Easter story, but it was in my thoughts today as I did my "Post Standing" and seemed to want to come out so I will let it. We al... Read more

Moving through changes

Saturday, March 29, 2014      3 comments

This week’s major digression from my normal everyday life has been to assist my brother and sister in law with organizing a memorial. Many people on both sides of their family live in the Ottawa area so it make sense to hold a memorial here. The... Read more

As some of you will know I took up the practice of Taijiquan and Gramie took up yoga. There are many common elements and many differences in these two disciplines. Each work on your balance, physical fitness, focused attention and vital energy. ... Read more

The Comfortable Spot

Thursday, September 19, 2013      4 comments

In Taijiquan we focus our movement from our Dantian or centre. This is easy to understand, but difficult to do. This week I am working specifically on walking on thin ice. That is, stepping so that the stepping leg comes down empty, without weig... Read more
