August 20, 2012


Okay, somethings are just plain cool. Justin and I spent Saturday night in a Casa Loma carriage house learning archery! Seriously. This was a really amazing experience on so many levels. First off, it's just plain cool! Second it was absolutely compelling. Right away I could feel how hungry my body was for learning. The mental aspect reminded me a lot of what I'm learning about meditation and it was amazing how much being in an environment like this reflects you back to you. This is definitely something that we both want more of. I'm looking forward to more archery adventures.


Reg and I were doing some treasure hunting for his costume at a flea market this weekend and I could not believe it! I got Tank Girl for $5! And Sucker Punch for $5 too. And Reg picked up a piece for his costume (that I was starting to believe didn't exist) for only 50 cents!

Jamie, I absolutely love that you and Justin went to do archery at Casa Loma! That has to be one of the coolest things I have ever heard and Reg is right, your form is perfect in the photo. I can really understand what you mean about the body aching to be so engaged in so many ways. I am glad you are considering doing it again, you are Sagittarius after all!

Awesome picture Jamie! I love that you guys when to do archery, what fun and great learning that it's something that your body likes to do!

and OMG Suzie! What amazing deals! $5 for Tank Girl and Sucker Punch? That's awesome -and would be quite the interesting double bill. And fabulous to get a hard-to-find piece for Reg's costume! It's going to be so awesome !

It really was amazing. We're both already aching to do more. I've emailed the teacher so that we can look at taking another class! Woot!

And thanks about the form. It felt really good in my body. It's cool to see pictures because then I can see that back elbow could come down ;)

And Suzie I am so glad that you finally have Tank Girl - yay - and for $5!! That's the best. I'm glad you guys had a successful time treasure-hunting!
