This is my arrangement from today's Ikebana class. I wish that I could've stayed longer so that the teacher, Akiko Bourland, grandmaster of the Ohara School of Ikebana, could've corrected it. If you are adept at Ikebana, I'm sure you're laughing--I'm pretty sure I inverted my arrangement among other things, but it was fun anyway. Below is a photo I took of the new Ikebana arrangement that just arrived in my room today. This is how it's supposed to look.
The week is coming to a close soon, and while I'm a little sad it will be over on Sunday, it's been great! We had a morning hike near a little lake this morning, it was so peaceful. I also had my second Tai Chi class today--which I'm loving. I had a facial and a massage this afternoon and am taking it easy until a quick meditation class before dinner.
