All right- after the Immersion, Kelly and I walked on the greenbelt, which was great because after being inside in a slightly warm room all day I definitely needed some fresh air. We came home and made dinner and I fell asleep early. All in all a good day although Kelly and I got in a talk about all the changes we have made since we left Arizona and I realized how many things I miss about being there. It is an interesting thing because I also love so many things about here. So it is one of those cases of "both", I think. Missing a place, missing my friends and endeavors there sits right along with the fact that I like what I am doing here. So there is, in the missing, no impetus to try to recreate what was, just an acknowledgement of a certain time -a lot of which I really loved- having passed and feeling the feeling associated with that.
One thing I really miss is having my own studio. I work for great studios here so I do not miss it because I am not involved in great things now. I am involved in really great things here. It is just something I really enjoyed that I am not doing now. Truly, I am gone way to much to run a studio as a sole proprietor in the way I did before- as we know, I can barely teach my 4 public classes a week as it is, much less 10-15 classes on a weekly schedule with advertising, marketing, cleaning, managing teachers and so forth- so it is not really a practical consideration either.
Anyway, those are today's musings from Christina Sell. I am looking forward to a nice long practice today and perhaps a walk before I do some work to get ready for my upcoming trip. I will be gone from January 21-31 on a personal retreat and so I have some things to get ready to go before I head out. I will be teaching my regularly scheduled classes at Castle Hill on Tuesday (4:30 Level 2-4) and Wednesday (9:30-11 Focus on Form and 6-7:30 level 2-4) so please come and join me this week or I won't see you till February which would be sad!
Have a great day.
