My youngest daughter will soon be giving birth to my youngest grandson. I am practicing being in the now. In class this morning we were extending ki with unbendable arm from kosa katate tori so uke lost balance very easily.
Taking my mind out of the now to imagine snuggling with little Vinnie distracts me from this day. Vinnie will be here soon enough. In the meantime Shannon and I have been enjoying pedicures every two weeks to celebrate his preparation and her growing inability to reach her toes.
My mind can run to good and bad imaginings around Vinnie’s birth…both take my balance easily. I need to stay in this moment on this day.
When Vinnie arrives it will be another moment.
