Improvisation

In an improvised world there are no mistakes!

Improvisation welcomes surprise.

Make a Choice

By not choosing I am choosing to not choose…
So then I choose to sit here still not choosing…
Chosen already!

Simple Enough?

If you can’t state it simply you don’t understand it!

I work hard…

I work so hard to know what I don’t know!

That will keep me busy for the rest of my life…. (The latter is inspired by Carrie Ann Hasley-Zamora)

Tango

Tango will change your world!
My world hasn’t changed because I teach tango,
I teach tango because tango changed my world…
…body, mind and spirit!

Serenity Prayer – Revised

Well I fixed an age old aphorismistic prayer. The Serenity Prayer has a flaw, it should read like this:

God, grant me the wisdom to know what I can change and what I can’t.
The serenity to accept the things I can’t change
And the courage to change the things I can.

Otherwise you are beating your head against the wall trying to accept something you don’t know it you can change or not. Then you are trying to change something you can’t change – mainly because you are very confused.

However…. If you ask for the wisdom to know the difference first, then you can ask for the serenity and then for the courage.

Deniability

Every rain drop in the flood denies responsibility for the breaking of the dam!

House Break Yourself

Even a cat can learn this one:
Never poop where you eat!

Micro-Manager

To reach beyond the boundary and organize another… the worlds greatest sin… or your life’s best friend?

Belief

Belief is like a bull whip,
When retracted at just the right moment
It breaks the speed of sound,
And that really smarts.

Teachers and Students

You must know what a student has been taught to help her learn.
The best instruction is given by exceptional students.
