Just a few photos from our evening at Villanova U. for the beginning of aikido summer camp. We needed this 'dry run' as now I know that I have to take a different entrance ramp to the turnpike to get there for Saturday's test, since there is construction going on at the one that I tried to take today.
Here is a quietly taken photo, as photographs are generally discouraged...I set my camera on the bench next to me and hoped for the best. Only a portion of the people who will come for the weekend show up on Thursday night...I assume it's easier to take off work on a Friday than on Thursday for most people.
While George and Mike watched the class, I took a walk around the campus and got some decent photos. Here are two for now....
I'm feeling so wiped-out tonight...it may be the humidity, but also, when I have to ignore my own natural rhythms and keep going when I need to take time to do other things or just 'be', it takes a toll on me. It's like my mind and my energy are telling me to go one way, and I am fighting against it in order to do what has to be done. It's not always easy to find a balance in these things.
I'll feel better when I catch up with myself ;-).
Maybe I'll put up some more photos when I have a chance to play with them a bit.
