|When traveling, stretch your spine!! How often? Every chance you get, darlin!|
I'm here. At the USC campus for a quick visit with GianPaolo before heading to Florida for another John Lennon art show. I am writing this post just outside the buildings of the School of Cinematic Arts and all around me are tones teeming with creativity. I just love it!
|Lucky kid! I will reap some of his education by asking a whole lot of questions.|
Background: musical scales on a trumpet and a soprano voice sings an obscure tune just around the corner. Bicycles whiz past me, their spoked wheels beating time to the melodies filling the spit shined, blueness atop the buildings. I pretend to be one of the students; just a regular gal in a world of genius. No biggie. Yeah, I can pull this off.
|Just a regular old building here.|
On the predawn flight down here, I snap a shot of me performing a perfunctory stretch. Lady across the aisle looks at me like I'm twisted.
|I call this my "number 4" stretch. I do it constantly during flights. (Sorry neighbor!)|
As I wait in "ground transportation" at LAX for Eugene, our favorite cab driver, (retired engineer with two USC grads to his credit) to pick up my Starbucked body and deliver it to the campus, I release my tight hamstrings by putting one foot up on the bench and leaning into my outstretched leg. Oh my, I am tight today.
|All you need is a bench. Maybe a few dips? Nahhh..|
My neck has been kind of crunchy, pinchy so I resort to my old faithful; open my chest, lean back without arching my low back and take a deep breath. The exhaust almost chokes me, but my thoracic spine feels looser. (See photo above, taken last summer.)
I elevate my legs for a few moments, people watching. We are all so different. I love it!
|Ahhh, I am alone and nobody knows me! Yes, use your luggage for an ottoman!|
