Little Energy

Phew! It has been a busy couple of weeks (I was up at 4.10am unlocking my "new" and "real" second-hand Sidekick LX ... crazy but worth it) and I think all the hard work on the yoga mat has finally taken its toll. It's kind of strange. The left side of my body - neck, shoulder, hip, knee, leg - has gotten really weak/stiff in recent weeks ... I can no longer do the bind on the left hand side and my left knee (which had to be "drained" about half a year ago) never quite recovered from that trauma. I asked the perfect human specimen whether I was doing something wrong in class and he said no ... but advised me to seek medical help ... think I shall do that if things don't improve. In the meantime, I think I will scale down on the double-sessions ... I probably HAD over done it ~ a bit.

In the meantime, with my feet up, I've been looking through the Beautiful catalogue my friend brought back for me from the Caravaggio exhibition in Rome. Caravaggio has always been one of my favourite Old Masters ... without going all academic and theoretical, I appreciate his paintings for the richness in colours, the atmosphere, the shades, the drama, the expressions ... I can spend HOURS looking at just one work ...

The Supper At Emmaus (1606)

The Taking of Christ (1602)

... before I nod off ...
