november project, day 3: learning how to unicycle
I signed my daughter Lucy up for a unicycle class on Thursdays through November. When we got to the gym on the first day, I found out that the class was open to adults, so I joined. I am so excited! This photo is from last night, our second class. Lucy and I both started going short distances with no hands. I cannot wait to go down our street, which just got newly blacktopped last summer, and roll around the neighborhood with Lucy on our unicycles.
I love learning new things, filling my creative well with little adventures along my way. It keeps my brain fresh, my body awake. Unicycling makes me sweat with the effort of moving my body a new way. I love it.
Life has taught me that I can’t dwell in a routine too long or I feel like I’m on a hamster wheel and I get depressed. I guess this speaks to the dance of balance–knowing when the dance is stale and needs new breath.
