Ides of September -- Day 252

Walk: Mindful Body +
Distance: 1 mile and teach yoga class

After class today a student who hadn't been there for a (long) while came up and said "That was a truly amazing class!"  And therein is the good news and the bad news.  Good: Teaching ability keeps growing.  Bad: Unpredictability of student turnout.  Drives me (and virtually all yoga teachers I'm willing to bet) craaazzzy.  You just can't help but take it personally plus there are other stresses all amounting to lack of control which is known to be the primary human stressor.

So, what to do? Travel?  Live in the country (where?)? I don't know, Angie.... Fall is traditionally the beginning of the school year whether or not I'm in school, so it's decision time again.
