A friend posted about how frustrating it is when your partner decides to teach you, regardless of what the teacher is doing.
So I’ve been thinking. What do I want to teach? How do I understand my partner’s needs?
The title is, of course, a spoiler.
On good days, my focus is on each moment of interaction. No, that’s not right. On good days, I’m open. How you move is a delight. I meet you and laugh (internally) as the thing I was turns into a joint presentation.
On days which are not so spontaneous nor so beautiful, my concerns consume me, and I (gently, I hope) complete technique in a way the teacher opened for me.
In other days, we are lost. I try to express how we can meet, and incorporate technique.
On bad days, I drop you on your head, and laugh.
I hate bad days.
