Hi. My name is Katherine and I am clumsy.

Hi Katherine.

No, this is not a 12-step meeting at all, but I feel like that when I admit to you that I am clumsy. Getting on and off boats, in and out of airplanes, playing any sport (my first drive on a par 3 golf course ... I banged the ball into the pro shop!), ... I bumble along. It doesn't stop me from doing things, but I know that I provide comedic relief to those who watch!

Maybe that's what makes me especially curious and attentive to those who are graceful with their bodies. Like this guy on the dock. He moved on the tilting dock as if it were still. Even as I watched and sketched him, I envied him just a bit, too.

Last weekend I got to see Cirque du Soleil's "Kooza" show. Top notch athletes, every one of them! These contortionists were the most amazing of all!

I like that painting--of the dock guy...and I don't think you are clumsy whatsoever!

Hey I think the dock guy has a great persona. You've been workin' hard - I think it's paying off.

Clumsy???? I wish I was half as clumsy as you and could produce such art as you do. I mentioned you in my blog today yesterday you along with others made me sing.

Amazing, and they're always smiling! I had the opportunity to see Mystere last spring. They are all amazing athletes.
