April 24, 2017: Duly Noted

This was the statement that I uttered this morning on Day Two of the update clinic. Today it is my motto. Plain and simple, we make things more complicated than they need to be. Plain is good, simple is best. We think too hard, create tension, hold tension, embrace tension, in time this is what makes us old and creaky. I have determined that I do not want to be this way, ever

There is no way in hell that I will remember everything that I learned today, even though I did take good notes. I won’t go back and look at my notes because I never do this. Rather, in writing, I partially internalize what at the time, is of most interest to me. I often wish that I’d taken shorthand in high school. Should have taken this instead of study hall.

This morning we talked as a group about breathing, the first basic, and how to use it, to be centered.
