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."

Force transferred upward from the ground -- that's totally tai chi.I hope I remember to try Feldenkrais when I get old.


Why wait? It could only enhance your Tai chi practice. I started to discover new subtleties in karate (and have more stamina) after I got into Feldenkrais.

There are 6 practitioners in your town. Just type the city in here.


I have got to check this out more thoroughly. I remember in the 1960's Dr. Glen Doman used the same principle in his treatment of Joseph Kennedy after his stroke. He mcalled it "Patterning". The practice was learned and picked up by the fledgling UCP and we used to take turns travelling to people's homes to perform it on CP kids. It was visibly successful over time. Of course this was before the times of certified PT practices, etc. Still, the principle lives, right?


"... all in one graceful, integrated intention --"

Like a prayer.


To the person who wrote above about Dr. Doman - do you know why patterning fell out of vogue?


Pediatric Physical Therapy

I'm very interested, where can I learn about that metod?
