Though the Full Sturgeon Moon is officially today, she was sure shining bright yesterday! I think she must have also been beaming down some inspiration because I think she and I (hehe) have finally decided on a format for my Year of Dreams course. Last year I hosted it live but next year I hope to be offering it in a brand new e-way, complete with gorgeous meditations and reminders to make your dreamboard.
There are so many amazing Olympic moments each day it's hard to pick on to share. Moments of glory, insights and even some crazy challenges (like the freaking pommel horse) or scandals (a badminton scandal... seriously!). The one that that I was most looking forward to was the Men's All Around Gymnastics and it had me glued to the screen with amazing performance for hours, butit was this particular moment in Men's Weightlifting that took me by storm: a 204kg clean & jerk by LU Xiaojun of China. Unbelievable. That's 449.743 lbs. Above the head. Amazing what people can do.
Despite having another terrible headache, I was determined to get out my camcorder and figure out how to upload a video to my computer. I just did a short test video of my altar and still, could not figure out how to upload it. Turns out Canon does not make software that is compatible with Mac (argh!) so I have to plug my camera with the adaptor, turn it on, go to a particular screen on the camera for it to download. How did I find that out? I called tech support. I will eventually learn how to do this wireless but for now, this is good enough.
I tend to avoid my new toys after I buy them. I get intimidated or something and this is totally new tech to me. So I was avoiding it even more. Now that I know I can do a basic shoot and upload, I'm good. I have no qualms about being on video but apparently taking video and dealing with tech freaks me out. Glad I took this first step.
