While playing around in Lightroom editing the sketch I made after one of my Pilates sessions, I thought of that song, Dem bones, dem bones, those dry bones. Hunting for the lyrics on the internet, I got sidetracked. I found this super little movie Walt Disney produced in 1929. Skip the commercial and stay long enough to watch the skeletons dance 🙂
Put your tail up and fan it out like a peacock.
Put your throat back in your neck.
Milk your sits bones.
Think of your head as a balloon full of water. Wobble it.
Like a string of pearls, lay down your spine one vertebrae at a time
Open your collar bones. That’s right ! Make them smile.
Images like zip up or, think of an elevator that’s slowly lifted to first, second, third floors etc.
With prompts like these, how could you not have fun doing Pilates.
The white skeleton, sort of hanging, standing over there by the wall is between the reformer and the trapeze table. This guy has been getting my attention lately. Ok, OK, I’ll try to draw you. So after my session I did a quick sketch of him. (It has been determined that he is a young man.) The drawing is a bit abstract and I only sketched down to his knees. I didn’t plan very well – just started drawing. Now that my core is strong and I’m standing straight up, I’ll see if I can walk out of here and keep my good posture along with a good attitude while I get bombarded by life’s daily adventures.
