starting to cramp as they always seem to when I practice. However, about
30 minutes into it I started getting the feel of it. I'm now to the

It felt just like it did when I was little and Brenda took us to Crystal
Palace and I taught myself to roller skate. I basically did the same
thing as then - rolled around 'until I got the feeling of it. And, just
like then, stopping is the hard part. It was strangely gratifying. I
needed to feel some accomplishment after today (more later) I actually
had to make myself stop (got work in the morning - it's 2:45a now).

Listen to your body when it urges you to move.
Even if it tells you to move naked.
