We're not going to ignore the pandemic, but it does feel like the right time to get back to planning confidently for the future and welcoming anyone who's vaccinated and wants to train.
People that we care about are under attack, and I think it's vital that we make clear our support for trans youth and adults at Sun Dragon. Whether it's legally binding or not, it's still an attack that labels people as undesirable and unwelcome and stokes fear and anxiety among many of our friends and students. Please know that you are always welcome at Sun Dragon.
Sun Dragon will be celebrating our 33rd anniversary this summer. It's hard to believe. As I was thinking this morning about what I wanted to write about today, the themes that kept running through my head were community, safe spaces, and sacrifice.
There is joy and peace in movement. I was that kid who would stand in the driveway and throw a tennis ball against the wall over and over again, trying to hit the spot. I sometimes wonder if that makes me better at teaching kids or worse.
I hit it yesterday. It's that wall that you hit after you've been keeping it together the best you can for a while and you see the hope coming, you relax a little bit, and it all crashes in on you.
