Nov. 27, 07

* reading my "Expressive Body" book and reading about just the kind of work I want to do - work that is body aware, relational, and with movement
* getting the art stuff put away
* talking with Farah at the end of the day
* having Lily and Piper over after school playing with my kids - I like a full house sometimes (often) and like watching Piper and Maeve play imaginatively

Nov. 26, 07

* hanging out with the kids in the morning colouring
* talking about combining relational psychotherapy and expressive arts with Lee
* feeling energized after my ISIS class
* a client who has expressed very little emotionally began to open up tonight for the first time
* finding out I can get graduate credit towards a PhD in somatic psychology from the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy training I've done
* getting the book "Expressive Body in Life, Art and Therapy by Daria Halprin" today in the mail! I can't wait to read it - I have an unlimited interest in combining body-centered work and psychotherapy and I LOVE books - I kissed it.

* talking about contact dance with shiatsu client: how easily the conversation flowed
* talking about growing through shiatsu with Andrea and feeling more connected to her
* writing a blog post about how my deepest need is to be fully available to love life and other people well, that that is what motivates me to grow
* Maeve meeting my eyes from the kitchen and saying she wants to be with me tonight, she misses me, and I feel connected to her (and Ted doesn't have reaction, he says I know you miss her)
