we didn't have class last week. but we are back on tonight. and i am not looking forward to it. Only because i feel so tired today. we have had lots of parties to attend this season. lots of late nights with the neighbors. cookies to bake. (and let's just say i am glad baking sugar cookies was not on the list of passions, cause i flipping HATE making those) full moon winter solstice eclipses to watch. wow. and i have a big christmas eve party coming up in a couple days, that i am just starting to get ready for. i think i spent 2 hours on the computer today looking for a good tamale recipe and a punch made with tequila to serve with them. not so productive. especially considering i didn't really find either.
so, i feel tired.
and i have a lot to accomplish...so drum class sorta feels like in the way today. and i haven't practiced. seems the drum i rented has turned into a kitchen side table for stacking my bag of leftover cookie ingredients. i should probably at least get it out and slap out a few rhythms before class tonight. maybe.
and maybe tonight's class will ignite that special drumming spark that i know lies hidden within.
and as for looking forward to next month, meditating. i got some CD's for learning to meditate by Pema Chodron. and i am going to also include a 30 day bikram yoga challenge, which is like a 90 minute moving meditation. there i said it. now it's out there and i have to follow through. i figure, after the holidays and the extra 10 pounds and liver damage, a kick start to the new year that will cleanse and get me back in touch with my body would be a good thing. and also because this is the one things that i feel like i truly loved during this year long adventure. i want to finish off with a testament to finding a passion.
now really, when January starts i will totally need good luck. :)
