|Who has inspired or taught you?||

|Do you make your own sets? Can you describe what kind you make?||

The truest help we have to give, is given by simply being ourselves.

Try to practice several times a week, even if it is only for 10 minutes at a time. It really does help to flag and then sleep on it.
