When I take a look at some of the themes in my work, one that seems to keep coming up (as in spin into view repeatedly) is that of motion. I never like myself in photos. Why? Because I am not moving. Juggling...Doing..Trying...Learning..Being: as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, artist, friend.

Well, now I am spinning in yet another context: exercise! The bicylcle spinning class I take stresses posture and core strength rather than speed. It forces me to focus on my body mechanics, breathing and internal zone at the same time. (This is all very exciting after my big surgery 5 years back.) I like to do things that allow me to move. Are we back at that again? My body freezes up if I sit for too long. So does my brain.
