Bonus points if you can guess which song this is from!*
After my last post, I lost both my writing mojo and my knitting mojo, even though there has been plenty going on. Mom and I spent a four-day weekend with my aunt in Dover in September. We went to the exhibit of costumes from Downton Abbey and did an artists’ studio tour of Lewes, Delaware. I’ll probably do a post for each one of those so I can include lots of photos.
I started a tai chi class a few weeks ago. I’ve been wanting to learn tai chi for years, but never seemed to find a class that was reasonably close. I did learn a different form of it a long time ago, but always wanted to learn the type you see people doing in groups in the park. So I found a class at the Chesapeake Arts Center that started about five weeks. I knew it was going to be harder than just moving your arms around, but it’s harder than I thought. You do all the movements with your knees bent in a partial crouch, so you really need strong thigh muscles. There are some parts where I can get the legs right, or the hands right, but not both, but I’ll get the hang of it eventually.
In other news, the division of my company that I work in was sold to a large company, although the official public announcement hasn’t been made yet. We had our orientation last week, and although not much has changed so far, I’m sure there will be changes down the road. I’m actually kind of excited because working for such a big company will mean more opportunities for us tech writers. At orientation, I told one of the people from the new company that I would like to do more editing, and he said that there is lots of editing work, even some in our building. Woo hoo! And they have offices in North and South Carolina, which may come in handy in a couple years. More on that to come…
*Did you guess Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears?
