Sharing Time : 8 Brocades Qigong Practice

I’ve been needing a little time in my day to clear my mind, my mind is always racing, and I just thought I’d share this little video I found. I took a short Qigong class in Fernie in 2010, and graduated with honours (or did I just get wave goodbye and a friendly “thanks for coming”…) Every so often I’ll whip out (so slowly) some Qigong moves that I remember and it helps. It really does.

Side note, I think that’s what I most appreciate about mobiles. I’ve been all about mobiles for a long time and now I’m trying to design mobiles with a friend….where was I, when I came home from a bike ride one night last week I looked up at the simple rock and stick mobile in our carport and I watched it as it slowly rotated around. In that moment, I felt so relaxed and at peace.

Alright. Just in case you were wondering “How does she survive?” This is how. Also, if you do watch the video, the guy who pokes his head around the corner is my favourite. He makes me laugh every time.

Blue Toque Take Over

I think I worded that wrong. I’m not taking over The Blue Toque but my illustrations are going to be looking over your shoulder as you eat your awesome breakfast/lunch at The Blue Toque! Get in there and buy one, if you want to continue the over-the-shoulder creeping from home. And you might! They are all originals and all signed by me.
