Today I did a stretching class. It is called "dynamic stretch" and seems to include combinations from different "disciplines". The breathing is pilates, some of the moves are Feldenkreis (however you spell that), others pilates, maybe even some yoga. It was not exactly easy but I could see getting onto the moves and getting better. Definitely easier than yoga for me. I met a woman I had met in the aqua class on my way out. Next
time I see her I am going to tell her my name!

I did five minutes on a lifecycle before joining the stretch class. I had forgotten how much I enjoy those cycles. They are spread around the gym, in at least three different locations, and often with televisions you can look at if you like. I figure if I can't get into a class that works for me I can do a bike thing sometimes.

Afterwards I went to the Pismo Starbucks. I sat in a comfy chair with my coffee and my notebook and wrote and observed. I kept myself there for more than a half hour, watching, noting, jotting down. Lots of different people came through. And now I am home again. I listened to Mozart piano concerti both coming and going. I have had that CD going for the past several days yet it still gets to me.

I think it's time for me to stop taking new classes and start doing the same ones again. I am feeling some kind of information overload here, because my body does not assimilate new moves all that quickly. I don't think it ever has.
