In response to and support of GottaGoPractice’s Fauré efforts of the same ilk, I was posting “relaxed Dvorak” videos over on YouTube. This one ran longer than 10 minutes due to one particularly hammy cat whose name begins with an L and ends with “ucy”. So in lieu of busting out the ol’ Final Cut or iMovie, I’m just sticking it here until I have the willpower to edit it into two separate videos. My favorite part is out of the frame: Lucy rubs her face on my glasses when I pick her up. Aww. Makes all the Dvorak worth it. I know it’s a theme here, but really: it’s so useful to have to articulate this stuff. I work on being relaxed all the time. It’s key to my rehab and also part of preventing a new injury. Having to sit in front of a camera and talk about it is an edifying exercise for me, and I thank you for the opportunity and inspiration.
PS: I say “first to fourth” position when I mean “fourth to first” towards the beginning. Sorry! 🙂
