After spending the day with 29 (the number grows bigger each day) basic trainees it's really a relief to come home and sit quietly out back. Reflecting on what worked & what didn't. Thinking of how to do better tomorrow. Having a much larger class creates a buzzing humming beehive of a class. Fueled by junk food, video games, constant stimulation, noise and not enough sleep they present problems. Riddles for my higher self to solve. A monkey whisperer spends many hours of contemplation in the beginning of the year. Especially the beginning. Working out ways to use stillness, slowness, calmness and repetition. You'd be wrong if you think I have it mastered. I do not.
Coming home to my brand spanking new fence calms me. I walk through the yard admiring each picket. so happy!
A gate will go across the walkway between the 2 posts. You know more fence updates are coming. You just know they are. And in the meantime how about a couple more Budapest photos. Both involving water.
Szechenyi Baths, where art thou when I need you?
