daze away

I've still got a few weeks till school starts and I'm using every minute of my time studying. OK, so this might sound obsessive, I don't care. I just want to enter my classes with some information so that I'm not just grabbing at bits as they fly by. It's fun work.

I've got a good schedule for the moment. Road riding to campus, I've got work study now, for about an hour and twenty minutes, spinning a 36 to 17 gear feels good and warms me up for the day. After working at campus, I'm so grateful to be on campus now, being part of the system and the flow of the place, and of all schools I've ever been to this one the community feel at ease. There's laughter. Man, how many schools have I been at where the laughter was not joyous, but something else, something ill at ease. And every one reaching out to help. I've got to admit the hearing Collen Phelan's Laugh just make my day.

Speaking of making my day, yesterday while getting water, the woman behind the counter said to me, "Your so luck to be outside today. It's a beautiful day." Wow. She was, is my guru in my mind. It's so great when even when everything is going well someone can wake up and take you higher. Thank you. Namaste, my friends.

Back to School

Back to school. That where I'm going. Right now I'm just getting in some advanced study of anatomy. Maybe it would help to say what I'm going to study. I'm begining to learn massage therapy. It's hard to say all that this will intail since I'm just starting out, but the for starters the focus will be more Swedish/Trigger point. And even that, well, I'm not sure what it will be. I'm really interested in where this will go.

After spending the morning studying, I headed out for an afternoon ride. There's a storm that's coming up from Baja so It hasn't been to hot lately. Still, I took it easy. Over Gates Pass and to the Tucson Mountain Park West and then up lower Golden Gate, dancing on the rocks, and finally back over Gates. In the last fifteen minutes the clouds that were building dumped a nice rain on me. Guess I don't need a bath tonight.

Time to make some beans and get back to the books.
