Just some bits and pieces

I can now do a partial headstand! (It’s the “tripod”.) [link broken]

I have bought a sewing machine. Before long I hope I will be able to stop complaining so much about how I don’t have enough clothes and nothing fits me. And maybe have some rockin’ homemade clothes too.

Dr Elyn R Saks’s memoir, The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness is an amazing and eye-opening read. Saks is a law professor at USC, and has been coping (sometimes very well, sometimes extremely poorly) with schizophrenia since she was a college student. She’s been through so many trials in her life, and yet managed to become an extremely distinguished professional with a rich personal life. I highly recommend this book.
