Not just because I've gained six pounds since early spring (someone remind me to post about overtraining, stress, exhaustion . . . and setting boundaries for recuperation).
Not just because I've missed fresh adult conversation for the last three months. ("Why are you leaving me here alone with the kids all night?" "Because I have to work," I say, sounding very important.)
I miss the music. I miss the dancing. I miss that stretch in my low back that I can only get from a Maya or a vertical hip lift. I miss shoulders loosened by snake arms. I miss the adrenaline rush from riding the waves of rhythm. And I miss being in a room full of women laughing.
I'm looking forward to next Tuesday . Come join me. We'll have a good time. (But tell those other people you are working, too!)
