Snap Out of It Ma!

Enough with the hand-wringing!  You know what day it is.  March 4th! 

March forth!

Time to play rumble.

Scene:  Bugs reclines in East Bed, peacefully contemplating the Meaning of Bird Feeder On Snow in Morning Sunshine. 

Enter Barney.

Note to Stage Manager:  East Bed can only carry a twenty-pound load.  Barney alone is close to that.  Multiply by additional ground-forces when inevitable play rumble begins.  This is no time to stop with the hand-wringing.  Hand-wringing re-commences.

birthday-gifBugs to Barney:  I have had about enough of your nonsense.

birthday 010-cropBugs to The World, including Bird Feeder:  I am leaving now.  (Exits stage left.)

birthday 013-cropBarney to Adult Supervisor:  This was not my fault.

birthday 014-cropBarney to Adult Supervisor:  You know you love me.

birthday 019Barney to Adult Supervisor:  Bring me Shoelace.  (Brings Shoelace.)  Thank you.

birthday 026-cropBarney to Adult Supervisor:  This is what Shoelace is for.

birthday 030-cropBarney to Adult Supervisor:  Take it away.  You may leave now.  I must rest.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.
