Hi, just forwarded this to a friend on Long Island. She might be able to attend and would possibly bring me along. It sounds like a great program you have listed.

If anyone is coming to Las Vegas, my wife Genie will be along this time and we intend to do some dancing at the Reo on Saturday night after dinner. I intend to have a seriously good time and invite everyone to come along.

Unfortunately Mary and I were able to attend only the Friday night class. Thanks to Marc for hosting the event and to George whose personable teaching style made me feel right at home even when some of his exercises took me decidedly out of my comfort zone. Thirteen people on the mat for Friday night made for lots of personal attention from George which I greatly appreciated.

While I attended the class with the attitude of a total beginner, it was nevertheless evident where our approaches to connection converged and diverged. I left we-do-it-this-way at home and consequently was able to really concentrate on performing the exercises as demonstrated by George.

Thanks again Marc, you have a warm and hospitable space in which to practice and George for your selfless dedication to sharing your knowledge.

Best,

Ron

Hi Ron,

You comment above just begs the question for more detail on the convergence and divergence - can you elaborate?

Thanks

Hi Greg -

I plan to elaborate further in my blog. I need time to process the information in George's presentation relative to what we're doing. George covered a wide range of topics in two hours, mostly in overview format. He planned to go further in depth over the weekend. Anyway, I'll get something posted as soon as I unscramble my brain.

Best,

Ron

Understood - my brain has been scrambled on many occasions :)

And as a product of the 60's, I even had my brain fried a few times as well :D

Hi Ron,
It was really wonderful that you and Mary took all the trouble to drive all that way just for Friday night. It was a pleasure to have you both in the class. Everyone had a great time working with you both. I look forward to more opportunities to play. Thanks again!
