10 MINUTE REFLECTION

It is 7 degrees this morning and hard to type.

I am not going to warm up with a run (a fast waddle along the quay to the opera house steps).

I won’t walk across the pier to have a shower at Sydney Dance Company.

“Did you have a good shower?” I asked.

She replied with a blank stare: of course.

I know those taps where the water runs hot then cold, then hot, then cold and then hot and cold again. Some would say that this is good for the body and the mind. It tightens and releases your muscles and wakes you up. Today I want to be cared for not woken up.

Also, sometimes it is hard to shower with ballerinas’ when you’re not one yourself.
