Here are two routines that a dear friend Mario Lam recently transfered from VHS (ha remember that). Thank you so much for doing that and sharing these wonderful memories (for those of us from that time when not everything ended up on the internet – well I suppose it does now!).
Here’s my ball routine:
And rope (can you count the miscues… there’s a few mistakes but I suppose these things happen!)
Fear is defined as an unpleasant often strong emotion. We resist unpleasant feelings, and yet these are often the times where much growth, learning and development happen. Here’s a video of a young boy overcoming his fears to much celebration. I think we would commend not only his talent but foremost his strength and courage. We admire it so much in others… so the next time you are fearing an activity perhaps instead of thinking of the unpleasant outcome recognize that you may be inspiring those around you.
Don’t let your fears stand in the way of your dreams.
As December quickly approaches, the joy of the season fills the air and Christmas spirit is all around. I am enjoying the All Christmas Music radio station (in small doses mind you but I am none the less), and have already taken in a few Holiday Movies. So I thought I would share some “oldies but goodies” to help kick start your Christmas fun!
My brother and I loved this one when we were kids. It may come under the category of ‘you can’t go back’ rather than classic, but it’s at least slightly amusing! Besides my brother got his classic line “I’ll have one with extra butter” from it! Enjoy a Claymation Christmas!!! (please click on the link. I didn’t find the whole thing on Youtube so I thought I would attach it this way to make it easier to view!)
I also came across The Snowman. I don’t believe I’ve seen it before, however it is a lovely little fantasy about a young boy’s creation coming to life. I love how music describes the conversations and drama unfolding throughout their adventure.
What are your Holiday favourites? Songs, movies or specials? I’d love to share in the spirit that makes this season so much fun!
They say humour is one of the hardest things to pull off. I have to agree. But I also have to say that when someone is able to combine talent AND not take themselves too seriously it’s often a winning combination. I came across this today and it made me smile. I just wish I had some children to sing to…
(The performance begins around 1:30 if you’re in a rush…)
As an athlete and an artist, it’s wonderful to see my passions unite. This sculpture was created by Eleanor Candozo. If you’re arriving to Heathrow Terminal 5, you’ll see the tribute she has made to Welsch gymnast Frankie Jones!
Speaking of departing I must return to packing – my least favourite activity 😉
