Catching Up

A couple of weeks ago I started a Yoga Teacher Training that focuses on working with people who have Cancer and who are recovering from Western Cancer Treatment. The program runs through May concluding with a weekend intensive Memorial Day weekend in New York. Looking forward to being there for an extended weekend to see old friends and absorb some culture. For now, I’m in Dallas the month of April helping a friend who is recovering from Western Medicine Cancer Treatment.

I’m grateful to be learning something new that is useful both professionally and personally.

In addition to the coursework, I’ve been working on a few creative projects. Finished the first round of beeswax wraps made from old pillow cases and the first of many cradled wood panels for future art making. The beeswax wraps vary in size. I used organic wax pellets and organic jojoba oil. I like that they aren’t too stiff. I am going to look into using resin in addition to the other ingredients for the next round.

This week I plan to glue together some cutting boards and make more panels. Stay tuned.
