I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.

See has called his project Physical Mindfulness of Painting, where he explores an appreciation and enhancement of the awareness of mindfulness of movement and the physical act of painting. His objective is to enhance the awareness and mindfulness of his movements by painting with weights attached to his body. As an artist in residence, he creates landscapes representing the Mundaring landscape.

As an artist, See incorporates his unique style of paint and sculpture, weaving narratives and symbolism with a love for nature. A background in manufacturing and industrial design gives him additional resources to draw on.

Mindfulness? I couldn't find an entry in the dictionary, let alone "physical mindfulness". After a search of the web, I found the following website,
The cultivation of mindfulness has roots in Buddhism and is the practice of purposely focusing your attention on the present moment - and accepting it without judgment has been found to be a key element in stress reduction and overall happiness.
