I had a tough time with trampoline work because (as I could tell from the offset) I’m not very flexible. I also have been trying too hard to do things right, which is a common habit of mine. I just could not “let go.” The three instructors and all the other students were extremely helpful. Then, at the right moment in time, that is when I was beginning to feel like I’d had enough, Susan said “I think she’s had enough.” I must say, in this and other instances, Susan again showed that one of her main attributes is that she’s so perceptive.
As was now routine, I again rode Peter Parker. This was our best go-around yet. He walked and trotted with far less hesitation than previously. He still lowered his head and pulled at on the bit when asked to stand still. And he was at times reluctant to move forward when asked. However, he seemed to be a little more lively mentally, and had a bit more enthusiasm for the tasks at hand than he’d had the previous three days.
So, all n’ all, it was a good clinic day. Most of the others have now left. Tomorrow, after a private less, I’ll be heading in the direction of Washington State. Anita is going to give Susan and me a ride to the Sacramento airport. I’m not allowing myself to feel sad about this. I’ll be back here May 20, and then take on a routine that will be same, and yet different than before.
I also found myself coveting my neighbor’s trampoline. There it sits – the owner of the place and the trampoline is now in jail. What a waste – I could so easily put it to use here.
