everybody's running so who're you gonna trust?

ACTUAL HANDSTAND, ladies and gentlemen and those of non-binary gender persuasions.

Twice, in fact. Against the wall, and I walked up a doorframe rather than kicking up--but the second time, I held it for ten seconds, and I managed to lower in the approved fashion rather than walking back down the door (tuck legs and roll down onto feet).

Result!

I can tell I'm going to be doing this at every opportunity for a couple of weeks, as I did when I first figured out the magic that is wheel pose. Maybe at the climbing gym I can practice kicking up. They have pads, so it's not so scary.

I also managed five seconds of crow pose and thirty seconds of elbow stand. My writhing biceps, I show you them. (Seriously, you should see the deltoids I am growing.)

if you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck ‘em.

One of my orchids bloomed while I wasn't looking! It's the Phalaenopsis, in all its spotty glory. There are still two or three bugs on the shoot, but odds are I won't get to see them, what with the Europe trip and all. Still, bloom! Only the second time since I bought it.

Today we choose faces do laundry. Also, I want to break out my guitar, which I haven't touched since I got back from Arizona. Renewed interest (rather than guilt) is another sign the brain fog is lifting.

Oh, what a job I have, that requires repeatedly pushing one's self to a state of mental exhaustion, and this is regarded as normal.

Other than that, it's looking at houses, walking the dog, and reading a book. Last day of time off: tomorrow I have to try to start getting my chicks in a row regarding the shorter of the two stories I must write in June.
