Hmm, mythology. Handstanding must be from the realm of Hermes the trickster. Hermes is one of the few gods who moves in both the above world and the below world. He invented the lyre and it symbolizes an instrument that allows us to express the moving power of soul. As scholar David Tacey notes, "Hermes awards Apollo the lyre which will bring a universe of lyricism, poetry and rhythm into the psychic domain of this solar and upright God." Stuffy Apollo even calls upon the brilliance of inversions when he beats Marsyas in a contest of musicianship. By turning his lyre upside down and playing a tune just as masterfully, Apollo demonstrates a prowess that is simply beyond this upright world. This brings to mind the antics of Jimi Hendrix, another master performer who could play his instrument upside down.

Eugene Ahn says | Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 1:15AM
This is near the back garden, behind the ampitheatre. I think this view offers a good comparison of the two styles of wall panel surfacing on this unconventional building. The wall on the right side of the photo features panels with a polished, reflective finish. The wall on the left side of the picture has panels that are brushed down to a dull matte finish. When the concert hall first opened in 2003, the entire building looked more like the mirror-like wall on the right. But neighbors complained about sunlight being reflected into their windows. The mirrored walls were overheating nearby offices and apartments, and blinding the people who occupied them. So the walls had to be refinished to something less reflective, like the way it is on the left wall.

Her destination was Seoul. I would be finding a connecting flight in Incheon and continuing on to Ho Chi Minh City. We had a short, cordial chat before boarding the plane, and she agreed to take a picture of me doing a handstand. She seemed a little skeptical about the whole thing, but I managed to stick a good long handstand on the first and only try, and she took just one shot before becoming bored with it all.

The street outside this fort hosts an interesting craft market every Saturday. Definitely worth checking out if you find yourself in Maputo with some free time on the weekend. Make sure to negotiate all prices. The merchants expect haggling.

It was really challenging finding balance while wearing snowboarding boots. I was also probably on the tired side. It was at the end of a full day on the mountain. Carey and I were waiting for the others. The mammoth statue was our meeting place. Turned out I had plenty of time to find ways to accommodate the extra weight on the feet.

My down time in Narita was only a few hours. Too short to head into the city. And too long to just sit and wait. So for a while I practiced doing handstands in the departure terminal. No one seemed to mind.

Nice, the tree flows up and out from your toes. The floating roots of the Tree Man get really connected with the Earth, with some help from the goddess of the downward-facing tree.

Leave it to an engineer to figure out how to do a handstand without having the hands touch the ground. It looks as if you might float away from dear mother earth at any moment!

What better way to recognize Cinco de Mayo in Shanghai than with some yoga? I caught a Yogic Arts basics class over on the west side of city center with celebrity yoga master Duncan Wong. It was a fascinating practice. Lively, unexpected, entertaining, challenging, and very different from his ultra-slick DVD that I reviewed for Yogi Times magazine last year. The class atmosphere was part love nest, part boot camp, and part culture clash mash-up. The practice left me feeling extremely in touch with my body. Testament to that: lifting up into handstand in the chill-out lounge after class happened seemingly without any thought or effort at all.

Chasing storms again. Fresh powder in the mountains along the central valley. This was my first time taking Highway 41 from Kettleman City to get to Sierra Summit. Just before entering the Fresno area, we stopped at this gas station to switch drivers.

Southern California winters are kind of like this. Sunny days, blue skies. A balmy warm feeling even though there might be snow on the ground. I spent three hours the day before inverting at a yoga workshop. This morning, I woke up, did a handstand, spent forty-five minutes trying to find a way past the L.A. Marathon, another forty-five to get the the mountain. Less than the time of a typical commute. Top of the mountain on a beautiful day. Desert on one side, urban grid on the other.
