Massage Substitute

Some days, I could use a nice massage, especially on the top of my head and around my ears.

For some reason, I haven’t been able to talk anyone into giving me a massage.

The closest substitute I’ve found is to rub by head on this wall.

Tiger Yoga Pose

The only thing I like about yoga is the stretching.

I’ve adapted some of the poses to fit my style.

Here I’m combining a downward dog and upward dog to make my own pose.

I call it the Arching Tiger.

Eye of the Tiger

What is it about the eye of the tiger?

Do you stop moving because the eyes hypnotize you or does fear immobilize you?

The eyes draw me in so that I have trouble breaking my gaze.

Grooming

It’s interesting to look through my camera lens and see animals grooming.

I think about how fortunate humans are to have tools such as brushes and combs.

Fine Art of Complaining

Have you ever thought about the way you complain? Are there things you can do to get your point across more effectively? Here are a couple of tips.

  1. Know what you want to achieve. It does not help to complain without an idea of what would be a satisfactory solution to the issue.
  2. Be polite. Rudeness will not help you communicate clearly.

Pondering Tiger

I’ve been wondering a lot. 

Trying to think of a plot. 

Do I really need on though?

Maybe I’ll just come and go. 

To ponder may be all I’ve got.
