Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Good Morning!!! One of my best friends recently went to massage school, something she had wanted to do for years. She gave up a teaching career to do so and found herself in unchartered, choppy waters; subbing for $$$$ and working very hard. She's a single mom, is super-bright (she got me through geometry with Sr. Mary Amelia) and struggles with bouts of depression. This sounds perfect for her to contemplate and try. Thank you. I, personally, would like to try pilates to lengthen and strengthen my muscles.

Just wanted to say I've found Feldenkrais to be really helpful. I got to the point about 6 years ago where I was having really bad lower back pains, and the fact I was doing a desk job at the time wasn't helping. I found Feldenkrais a really powerful method. Cured my back problems, and beyond that I just move in a much better way since doing both Awareness Through Movement classes and Functional Integration sessions. You can just feel the weight of your body resting on your skeletal structure, instead of having to be supported by straining muscles.

I'll keep the new course you mentioned in mind if I think of anyone who might be interested.

I've been studying tai chi chuan for the past five years and from what I know of both systems, Feldenkrais makes use of similar fundamental principles in an original and valuable way. I'm sticking with what I have, but under different circumstances I'd certainly investigate Feldenkrais -- especially because of your recommendation.

Hi! I'm a fellow Feldy with a blog and have included a link to your blog. Thanks for putting out the word on this amazing, most definitely life-changing practice.

Hope your own is continuing to evolve and thrive,
