I haven't read :Linda Holliday's book yet, but I am grateful to Sojourner's posting such a great recommendation on my last entry. When I have an opportunity I will grab it...
Grab as in Seize the Day. I'm not sure what today will bring but I did get up early and start some organizing around the house. As far as my husband is concerned, and my former student if they decide to work together on the painting and repair job nearby, I am grateful to Linda Eskin for her piece in Columns for July. She is one of the writers of the group "The Mirror" who take turns from month to month.
I like the once a month conferences a student has with the sensei at the dojo where she trains that lasts an hour if I remember correctly, and I think this can have positive implications in a person's job and home life, even if one is not training in a dojo at the moment.
I am not currently training, but I was for about twenty years, so some of my reading is reminiscing and some of it is applicable in the here and now. I find Linda Eskin's observations will be a great help to me at this point in my life as there are a plethora of people I have to deal with in addition to my husband and his friends working on projects here.
So if any of this rings a bell with any of you, please read something by either of the Lindas, or both!
