A Positive Note

November 27, 2011 at 9:24 AM

I made a couple of mistakes today. I spent each practice session without a watch, and every time, I ended up hashing on stuff until I got discouraged instead of quitting while I was still focused. Obviously, I went over my fifty minute window. You don't need a clock to tell you these things. Always quit on a positive note--if nothing else, so you can still feel good about yourself at the end of the day.

Secondly, I missed my little window of sunshine on an absolutely fairytale day. I would have had some very nice photos, but I only caught the fleeting pink in the tips of the trees. Thus, I will end this entry on that one little positive note, way up there.

I'm glad I got out in time to see that. The sun was fire through the trees. Today was a windy and brooding grey.
