My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK
My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK - August 17, 2020
Let’s get started. My Lions Gate BREAK members are part of a special club. I think this is our theme song.
Please email me if you have another idea for a theme song for us.
Let’s start the day today with some exercise. Here is some gentle chair yoga following the principles of www.dementiability.com. All you will need is a comfortable chair that is stable and lets you sit upright (like a dining room chair).
Lunch topic of conversation: “What three words best describe you and can you explain why you chose those words?” I would love to hear from you what those words are and why you chose them. Please email me if you would like to share them with me.
Have you had some time outside today? If you live in North Vancouver, perhaps you could walk to your nearest community garden and see what is planted. Look at this really interesting video about incredible community gardens across Canada:
Have you travelled to Rome? I haven’t but St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (an enclave in Rome) would be an amazing place to visit. St. Peter’s Basilica was begun by Pope Julius II in 1506 and completed in 1615 under Paul V. It is designed as a three-aisled Latin cross with a dome at the crossing, directly above the high altar, which covers the comrine of St. Peter the Apostle. The edifice - the church of the popes - is a major pilgrimage site. I have included a link to some history and pictures here.
Here’s a walking tour of St. Peter’s Basilica:
As you know I am a big fan of laughter. I found this “Animals Go to the Vet” video very funny and I hope you will also. (Note: If you like this just let it play and you will see funny dog videos). Enjoy!
Anyone like musicals? Here is The Music Man which I first saw as a young girl and loved it. The music and lyrics are by Meredith Willson, based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey. The plot concerns conman Harold Hill, who poses as a boys' band organizer and leader and sells band instruments and uniforms to naïve Midwestern townsfolk, promising to train the members of the new band. Harold is no musician, however, and plans to skip town without giving any music lessons. Prim librarian and piano teacher Marian sees through him, but when Harold helps her younger brother overcome his lisp and social awkwardness, Marian begins to fall in love. Harold risks being caught to win her.
Here is the entire musical for your evening entertainment.
I hope you had a great day.
Please send me your comments, suggestions for future 'days' or let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
Please send me your feedback. It will help me build a better program for YOU.
