All my practices seem to be going well these days…adding more strength and power, as well as overall fitness, to my T’ai-Chi practice, without losing softness and flexibility and staying injury free…adding more exposure to cold temperatures, mostly in the form of cold showers and the occasional cold plunge…eating better…working on songs for this year’s recording project with 5 done so far…working on relaxing and enjoying myself when I perform regardless of the level of attentiveness from the audience…working on new and better levels of connection in my marriage and friendships...spending time in Nature with more of a sense of immersion and surrender…and enjoying all of the above as much as I can. I turn 60 this year and am more aware of my mortality than ever. My mom calls the 60’s “the youth of old age” and I agree with her. The 70’s are the middle age of old age and the 80’s are just…well…the old age of old age. So you know…Carpé life.
The only rules of this Hack Circle:
1. You’ve got to use your feet to keep the sack in the air and off the ground. No hands! (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
2. If you miss or otherwise screw up, you can’t say, “I’m Sorry.” (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
3. No serving to yourself. (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
4. No hotdogging. Meaning this is not about how many tricks you can do before the sack hits the ground, and it’s not about working obsessively on tricks. Tricks are fine but in general, we want to keep the hack going as a friendly group and keep everyone involved.
See you at Caldera rain or shine. The overpass provides shelter from the rain and once the circle gets going, you’ll be plenty warm regardless of the weather.
