One of the great things about the school is that teachers are encouraged to join in the learning; what better example for kids on the value of lifelong learning. I've been able to dabble in art class, discuss the reign of the Borgias while sitting in a grade 12 history class, have a published author critque my efforts in the writers club, and attempt to slow down and relax while meditating in yoga class.

I bailed on yoga though. I always find that the moment I slow down and relax is precisely the time that life will sneak up behind me and kick me in the ass hard enough to leave a big fucking bruise.

But tonight I think I found something I could really get into - tonight was the first boxing class.

It sucked hugely to have any last illusions of fitness stripped away. It's hard to keep convincing myself that I'm not "in too bad a shape" when I can't do certain maneuvers because my belly is in the way and I'm sweating already after only 5 jumping jacks.

Ah but the boxing..... POW! BIFF! BAM! The sound of the glove smacking against the punch mitt is as musical to my ears as the sound of ice clattering against the metal sides of a martini shaker.

I like it. I like it a lot.

But it's gonna hurt like hell tomorrow.

    Yoga is great for the mind and soul. My former fiancee boxed and had a black belt in Tai Kwan DO. I used to spar with him (put the gloves on and throw punches as he dodged and weaved) and it was a great workout and yes.. It really feels great to hit something.
