Most people didn't realize it was my last day, which is fine, cuz I hate big goodbye scenes. But one woman brought me a card, which made me cry when I read it on the subway.
I have mixed emotions about not teaching at the center, but I'm looking forward to ITT. I know that asana practice and the teaching thereof is not the end of the line for me, but before I'm ready to give it up or go beyond it, I want to transcend some of the difficulties I've had with teaching.
One resistance I've encountered all along is the use of hands-on corrections. My physical corrections lack conviction, and I don't carry my authority in my body as much as I would like. i'm hoping I can get beyond this in ITT.
Another related roadblock is my ignorance of human anatomy. I get bored and restless when I read about anatomy, or take a fussy Iyengar-type class that focuses on skeletal or muscular minutiae ...and I want to get over that. It's good to know anatomy so that you can serve people.
In book news, I confess that I didn't wait to finish Silas Marner before I started my next mystery, A is for Alibi.
(I want to write a mystery set in the mid-90s indie scene and call it A is for Albini).
Silas is good, but I hit a dry patch with it. And then there was Natalie G's book which I'm still enjoying...
