It was a totally crappy Mari D, BUT STILL! I was so surprised! I was just moving through seated and thought, I wonder how far my hands are these days? I actually shouted in surprise when my fingers touched. Sophie rushed over and snapped a couple of super blurry documentary photos for proof….
Look! Actual finger to finger contact!
Now, I know I’m hunched over something terrible, and my arm is barely hooked on my knee, and oh, my god, please ignore the mess on the floor behind me.
But fingers! Are touching!
For comparison, here is beautiful example of Mari d, not me, obviously…
I would never have thought it possible that I could be in this pretzel shape. Ever. Never. My fingers have made a 4.5 year journey to get around my back to each other. There is still a ways to go before the pose actually looks good, and I can only do one side…but, but, I did a freaking Mari D!
Maybe my plateau isn’t as completely plateau-y as I thought.

Kino’s arm balance class. I can barely lift my arms now. I think they’re broken.

Tried another Kino video, the third, the “leg opener” practice. Not bad. Kind of miss regular primary though.
March 11, 2014 | 4:11 pm
Kino video on “core strength.” Just about killed me. Have discovered I have no core.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
