That teacher is not here to defend herself.

So, why do you bring this up?: You may personally have some guesses and uninformed prejudices of how things are in formal practice circles, and you're probably all wrong. Do the 20-plus years yourself which you speak of, and make a presentation here, or elsewhere, that's what I suggest which makes any sense at all. Or, drop this going-nowhere theme.

Joe, when someone and then another indicates that there might be flies on the rice cakes and then another suggests that that might be the case which might make the rice cakes less inviting, I'm not so sure that translates into people with no experience calling for change- And yet ..

Defensiveness is a form of congestion, too ..

Teresa, if you have something explicit and exacting on-topic to say that is based on experience of yours, then let's please hear it when and if you want to share it. Otherwise, this vague talk of yours of flies and rice cakes is really pretty dumb. Going nowhere, as noted.

Try to think of a fave theme or topic, start a thread on it, and try to engage people here that way.

I'll repeat it again, gently: Defensiveness is a form of congestion- :)

Sour-stomach is a form of digestion. It's cast in the form of your psycho-babble. Try TUMS?

psycho - as in don't know .. babble - as in the sound of the flow of water over stone ..

:heya: - pronounced heya, as in the sound of one hand clapping ..

:dance: - pronounced dance, as in the sound of two feet meeting and leaving the earth repeatedly usually to the sound of music ..
