Contentment vs. Complacency

Contentment vs. Complacency

Pardon you

Pardon you

I’m out of shape

In the past month I’ve only taught two classes, and it’ll be at least another five weeks before our new studio opens. Meanwhile, it’s the holiday season, and the food— the delicious, plentiful food, and drink — is unrelenting, like a daily horn of plenty, but…
