In General Coming Back After a Holiday Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #58 New 11-30-2009 11:44 PM
Our dojo is closed over major holiday weekends. Over the Thanksgiving break there were no classes Thursday through Sunday.

I went to class Wednesday night (unusual, for me), and tonight (I would normally have waited until Tuesday). Still, 4 days away seems like an awfully long time.

I noticed something interesting in both of the classes tonight, I think. We were having fun, and laughing like we always do, but there seemed to be a little different intensity and concentration. It was quieter than usual. During some exercises it sounded like a library (with soft falling, of course).

It reminded me of the silence one hears just after a group of hungry friends sets down to dinner.

Porhaps if you guys were concnected you reached for that moment were Onsanay was trying to get peoiple to be. My sissay siad that Akdio is more abotu forgeting how to act then lurning new htings. Thats why kids are often better , they go with the flow more. Or you guys were more distracted ndc none of you reliized it and relly werent there and were sleep praticing.

I noticed something similar myself. We only missed the class on Thursday. But then we only have three classes a week anyway. I definitely noticed a difference in myself. While still focused the intensity level was muted. A quieter mind maybe...
