We’re still snowed in here in Arkansas. So in the course of catching up on e-mail, I came across a post from Mary Debono on my FELDENKRAIS chat-list the other day. Mary writes of her work restoring awareness and movement for Chilee the Chihuahua, a little therapy-dog who kept company with people who’d suffered a stroke – until, irony of ironies, he himself suffered one.
The “words” in the title to this post is an homage to Mary’s ability to describe her hands-on work in a way that conveys her thinking and action in remarkably vivid detail. As a FELDENKRAIS practitioner myself, I could no more recreate any given session in words than I could fly. Not so for Mary, and she’s really done us a favor. Plus take a look at the “before” and “after” pictures. Amazing and inspiring.
Now, on our end, if Teresa can mush her way in without getting swallowed-up by Lake Australia, later today we’ll resume our Tellington work with Bugs. So until then, let me post pictures of the boy and follow up with the nature report. Bear with me for all this weather stuff. It’s just been too huge an event not to document it. Plus Eleanor has encouraged me this time.
