The Marcy Model #PL-43211
This little exercise beauty sits in my extra attached room, we call the room the cabana and use it for summer dinners, storage, encaustic studio and for the past three months, exercise room. She is a beauty, good comfy seat, a battery display of time, speed, distance and calories! Picked her up(the name really is Marcy) at a big exercise store and they put her together and delivered so she has been good to go!
Suki completed this tag and offered it to any one interested. "It is to list 5 things I do daily to keep my spirit happy and healthy"
1. I pray/meditate every day, mostly in the evening. I would add journaling as a spiritual way for me.
2. Hot tea and blogging every morning...good for me, learning, smiling, caring and connecting to other creative people.
3.Marcy, I take her for a spin each morning, I've worked up to over 20 min. and just under 5 miles. I play classical music , sometimes ride with my eyes closed , sometimes open, sometimes imagine myself biking down familiar roads.
4. Kiss, hug, affection that romantic stuff with Pablo! We are grateful to have one another and find it easy to be close. The laughing is a great spiritual benefit and I've heard good for one's health too!
5.Make-up, I have pale skin, light eyes and light hair...it's scary! I need a quick basic blush, shadow ,liner and lipstick....and then the day begins! When I am done I give myself a smile...all is well in the world or at least I'm now ready to face the world!
That's my five, so if anyone wants to take this subject on please do so. I have been working in the studio on my new work and have had a few false starts so this was a nice break. I've been wondering lately if I'm really an organized person (never saw myself that way) but now rather see myself as very disciplined. So I'll just keep going back into the studio until I can let my old ways die and allow new ways of art making show up....that's the journey.
