In an earlier entry I esposed my need for demonstrating patience. So, fully planning on attentding my second class last night, I put on the breaks and accepted the fact that my shoulder wasn't quite ready to re-enter the dojo. This was hard as I'm really raring to go, and as my multiple entries in this journal will illustrate after only one class. Stepping back, however, I reflected that to re-aggivate my injury would only result in further classes missed and, with the Christmas break on the horizon, I'd be better off holding off until the new year. In the meantime, lots of reading, breathing and exercises to increase the flexibility of mind and body.
