Hello, Sunshine!

Everything you need to know about happenings at Amber Moon Studio, November 29-December 12 , 2021.

The first person that came for Massage: The Driveway series when it started July 2020 pointed out recently, as I was talking about what I needed to do to be ready to move it indoors, that we’ve been thru all FOUR seasons on the driveway/in the garage. We can handle whatever. I think this garage (Taylor) is better insulated, and I’ll be paying attention as the weather gets below 40 degrees to see if it stays warm enough, and at what temp would I need to cancel any sessions. And I’ll have to see how quickly it reheats after I open the garage door. Do I need to hang dividers so the heat stays in the massage area? Yes, the heating component on the table still works, and I think i know where the blankets are… So many questions to investigate the answers too.

And then for the Pilates, I’ll have the window fan going. Again, does the insulation around it keep the room warm enough? It’s always something.

Taylor Pilates & Massage

Openings for these 2 weeks, subject to change:

  • Thursday, 12/2, 130p & 330p
  • Monday, 12/6, 530p
  • Tuesday, 12/7, 1215p (30 min only), 330p

Austin Massage

The sessions are starting to get filled with regular clients – so grab your slot ASAP if you’re wanting one. The next 2 weeks, Austin sessions are booked. Subject to change.

I had said I was adding a 5p on Fridays in the last update. I changed my mind. By Friday, I don’t want to work that late.

Awesome Arms

I had someone not active on Facebook say they wanted to join Awesome Arms, so I’ve reformatted a little – you can join me via Zoom! Please be prompt, as once I get going, I’m rolling to the end. You’ll have to catch it on YouTube if you miss. I’ll figure out how to cast just me to FB, but be warned, you might be there with me while I’m learning!

A Glimpse of the Moon

Theme for this week is “Give you neck a little love” and on 12/7 then next level of my knee program, all over on Facebook.

Your input please – I’ve got these scheduled thru the end of year, and ask your input for January & beyond. What topics would you like to have me discuss, movements explained, previews of various classes, etc. Your input is requested. I’m doing these as an educational tool for YOU. Please email, text, PM, etc me with your thoughts.

T3: Taylor Track Time

Yes! We’re still on. As you prepare to be outside in colder weather, here are some tips:

  • Dress in layers.
  • Avoid turning the heat on in your car on your drive to the track. It’ll be a bigger temp differential, and you won’t enjoy getting out.
  • Bring lights. So others can see you. So I can keep track of you.
  • A hat & gloves help tremendously. Ear covers if you’re not a hat person
  • If you have exposed skin, put lotion on it before coming.

Hello, Sunshine!

Everything you need to know about happenings at Amber Moon Studio, November 15-28, 2021.

Things are definitely on the upswing. Studio is getting busier. I’m moving things indoors slowly. The house is coming along. Just in time for the holidays, and to be rocking the new year in.

As things get busier, I’m focusing on planning my stuff out better. Like food. I started tracking what I was eating – just to get the patterns, details – in mid-October. It’s been insightful, even with my food issues! Part of being an athlete is getting in the KIND of calories I need for training and for maintaining my intensity. Which means I need more carbs. Yet I’m grain-free, and a lot of the other carbs are also on my “Sharon unfriendly” list. So as you can imagine, it takes planning. And I’m learning. You’ve gotta start somewhere, and then make the small changes.

MapMyFitness (MMF) has improved significantly since I last used it. I like being able to barcode scan my foods, input my own recipes, and they’ve got more diversity in what foods are in their system. A huge improvement – it frustrated me in previous years cuz what I ate typically wasn’t listed. This is one win for technology.

What I have learned:

  • My calorie base is about 1800, and goes up with exercise.
  • I need to get in at least 1200-1300 calories by lunch, otherwise, I’m in trouble. Most my foods are low-calorie, so I gotta stay on task.
  • I had a hard time initially getting enough protein. I started planning it out, and am up to endurance athlete levels (1.2-1.4 g/kg BW). Most days.
  • I easily get enough fiber.
  • I get more fat than I need – it’s my replacement for carbs.
  • I get a lot of saturated fat but majority of it is vegetable based, as in coconut, avocado, olive oil. My meats are lean, so they add only a little. My registered dietitian says it’s ok, the body can break down veggie saturated fat better than animal. I’m still working on reducing it.
  • I need to be mindful to be able to get my carbs in, and watch my fat intake.
  • I feel better with veggies for breakfast.

While it’s a task to enter food into MMF daily, it really does keep me on target. It keeps me honest. I’m also learning how to tweak my recipes to improve nutrients.

And every now & then I DO try foods on my “Sharon unfriendly” list. It seems in small quantities, infrequently indulged, nuts are ok. The occasional (say 1x/month) grain is tolerated. Nightshades still out. Beans are still out.

Taylor Pilates, Massage, & all online sessions

For the week of Thanksgiving I’ve opened up 11/22 Monday morning from 1030a-1245p to make up for time off. These slots still open. I’ve set the sessions so I can get (2) 1-h sessions in. I may adjust appointments to maximize efficiency if shorter sessions are scheduled.

I’m officially opened for 30, 45 & 60 min in person Pilates, with a few COVID based rules:

  • masks must be worn unless face down
  • must be vaccinated for 45 & 60 min in-person sessions
  • online sessions still available

I’ll be adjusting my overall schedule slightly as my schedule fills. My “free” slots are getting fewer & fewer. #YAYME

Austin massage

Every other Friday that I’m in town – I’ve added a 5p slot since the other 2 have been filling up.

Openings at this moment (subject to change):

  • Wed, 11/16/21 – 315p (30 min) is open
  • Fri, 11/19/21, 5p is open (60 min only)
  • Mon, 11/22/21, currently full

Awesome Arms

It’s on Facebook, and I’ve uploaded them to their own YouTube playlist, where I’ve also listed the equipment, so if you have a preference, you can easily find the right workout for you! If you do them, leave me a comment, let me know what you think. I’d love feedback!

Go ahead and put these next 2 weeks on your calendar! If you’re on Facebook, I’ve also created events for this to help you remember AND prep you for the equipment needed. Please go for the Studio Events page & RSVP!

Livestreamed Tuesdays at 230p, I’ll be covering these topics this month:

  • 11/16/21 – The feet, the golf ball, and just a few minutes a day
  • 11/23/21 –  The misunderstood hamstrings
  • 11/30/21 – Minimal movements to benefit your spine

This Thursday – it’s the 3rd Thursday – so that means off the track! Meets at Bull Branch Park. Come play! Click here to register.

No session on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, or December 23, 28 & 30.

I’ll continue with the Thursday session on Jan 6 & 13, then I’m gonna take a break. Several athletes have events on the weekend of January 15th, I’m getting them thru that, then we’ll see. I may end up shifting that Thursday time for Studio clients.

Hello Sunshine! Hello November!

Everything you need to know about happenings at Amber Moon Studio

As the Studio goes into its next phase of existence, I look back on the past year plus. I’ve had lots of first that I never expected – being out on the driveway for massages, cancel appointments cuz it got too cold, having to cancel a track session because winds were dangerously strong. A year full of surprises, challenges & growth. I wouldn’t trade this anything.

As I transition to a Taylor and Austin studio, I would like to thank those of you that have stuck with me through COVID, those of you that are slowly returning, those not yet ready to, and those that have moved on to next. I hold space for you regardless of where you are, regardless what your relationship with the studio is. I frequently get asked how many clients I’ve lost due to the COVID pandemic. My answer: none. I have clients that have not yet returned, those that have moved away, & moved forward. But I’ve lost none. You all have helped make Amber Moon Studio what it is – you’re here, regardless.

Turkey Tracks

As part of my new program, Turkey Tracks, I am pledging a dollar a mile to South Texas Persian Rescue, where all 5 of my currently fluffyfluffys found me. Whatever mileage I accumulate this month, I am going to be donating $1/mile. If you would like to sponsor me, let me know. I have a fundraiser going on Facebook. (it’s pinned to the top of my page). Feel free to pledge per mile, or do a lump sum. Doesn’t have to be donated thru FB either – you can donate directly to them via PayPal.

If you’re ready to join the Turkey Tracks journey, please ask to join our private facebook group.

If you’re joining us for this November Journey, please consider creating your own fundraiser for a group/effort that is important to you.

Taylor Pilates & Massage

Pilates Studio is soooooo close to being done. Finally got the 2nd coat of Kilz on it, and it’s ready for COLOR! That should happen next weekend… oh the excitement.

I also spent this past weekend cleaning & re-organizing the garage, so the Driveway massages can move indoors. You’ll be surrounded by a lot of my plants on the days the weather gets chilly too. I’m hoping it’ll be quite tropical. My goal is to be able to be INSIDE inside by January – the new year. I got this.

Austin Massage

Openings for the next 2 weeks (at least as I’m typing it. Subject to change.)

  • Wed 11/3, 5p open
  • Fri 11/5, 2p open
  • Wed 11/10 – booked full at present.

I gotta say, the space is pretty darn nice.

Awesome Arms

Premiers TODAY at 5p! This week, you’ll need dumbbells, toning balls or such. Join me on Facebook LIVE! You’ve fot 5-10 min to spare to get those arms strong, right? When you join me, I’d love your feedback.

  • Mon 11/1, 5p
  • Fri, 11/5, 1215p

A Glimpse of the Moon

Ooo… the first “official” one is tomorrow, Tuesday, 11/2, 230p. I’ll be going over my knee program – the basics. You’ll need a ball/foam roller/wheeled chair, a band of some sort, and a step to be able to drop heels off.

T3: Taylor Track Time

Formerly the Walk-to-Run program & Tuesday Track (Taylor), with a name change, and location change for Tuesday, 11/2, Bull Branch Park. We’re adding a bit more variety on the 1st Tuesday & 3rd Thursdays. Please register to partake of all the fun.

A new phase of the Moon

Everything you need to know about upcoming Amber Moon Studio changes starting 11/1/21 (posted on 10/25/21)

AMS Turkey Tracks

In lieu of the Amber Moon Studio Turkey 10 miler this year, a new program: Turkey Tracks.

It’s a little movement based shin-ding from the comfort of wherever you are. The goal here is to get in 1 continuous mile per day for all of November. The activity needs to be weight bearing – walking, running, elliptical machine, etc. Let me help you move forward with your wellness journey.

Who? Anyone that wants: to start moving; to improve upon their current health/fitness/wellness; a community of healthy improving people as the holidays start; to spend more time moving; to learn healthy habits & make positive lifestyle changes.

Why? Because we like you! And because moving is good. It helps reduce stress. Weight bearing helps strengthen bones. It can be social – invite your friends. Because #walkingisnotcancelled. Starting something, or improving something, is easier when you have a community. Consistency is the key to success, as is keeping it manageable. If you’re not used to walking, 1 mile is gonna be enough. 

I can’t walk because of _____. Ok, then bike, a row, something cardio that you CAN do, but again, pick a minimum standard to do. Maybe it’s 20 min/day. Maybe it’s 10.

What’s the cost? Your smile, your commitment, your interaction in our exclusive facebook group. To get in (1) like Amber Moon Studio, and (2) ask to be added! Do it NOW 🙂

But wait, there’s MORE!!! I’ve got a great friend – Ryan Lanier of Organizing4Good that’ll be stopping by this group regularly to give you tips on how to work this into your day – in other words – how to take time for you. She’s awesome. I’ll be providing walking specific as well as general fitness tips throughout the month.

Holidays

Thanksgiving Holiday – closed from Wed 11/25 at 12n thru Tuesday 11/30 11a (that said, I WILL be doing Awesome Arms on Monday, 11/29/21).

  • I’ve added Monday 11/22 openings from 11a-1p in Taylor, 3-515p in Austin, since I’ll be starting the Thanksgiving Holiday after Viniyoga on Wed 11/25 (12n),

Christmas Holiday – closed from Fri 12/24 at 12n thru Tuesday 12/28 11a.

New Year’s Holiday does not affect my schedule.

Austin Massage – now indoors

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being on Audrey & Kathy’s driveways this year… while I’m sad to leave the outdoors, I’m hoping indoors allows for consistency w the weather (not that it’s been an issue since I moved), and will bring some of you that I haven’t seen since COVID started back.

Dates that I’m in Austin:

Fridays: 2p & 330p slots in most cases. From 10/29, 11/5, 11/19, 12/3, 17, & 31… every other week. Got it?

Wednedsays: 2-6p. From 11/3 onward. Weekly. Got it?

Since this is now a fixed location, I will no longer be posting dates like before. I may post if I have openings. Once we get to January, I’ll be able to schedule regular sessions from my end… so start figuring out when works for you now.

This week: Friday, 10/29, I’ve got 2p & 330p open.

Taylor massage – still the driveway series.

The plan is to get the garage organized the first weekend or 2 in November to be able to move in (and be surrounded by all my plants). Once indoor spaces are ready, you’ll get to move in.

In-person Pilates

I had a pre-COVID regular ask for in-person Pilates (she actually volunteered to help move the reformer out weekly – yeah, not a good idea, but if she wants it that bad…), so in-person Pilates sessions are now open. If I can alternate a massage & a Pilates, I don’t have to allow 30 min between sessions because the sessions are in different spaces – YAY. So, if you’re interested, LMK ASAP. I’ve got openings on Monday & Tuesday.

Pilates in-person – 30 & 60 min options now open. Depends on what’s around it – i have 15 min set as in between time; if I happen to get 2 pilates in person sessions back to back, the latter session will need to be adjusted to 30 min to allow for air change.


Pilates online –  also open, so you can start now. These are called “Online movement sessions”

New Stuff LIVE on Facebook

A Glimpse of the Moon

Premieres Tuesday, 11/2, at 230p, Live of FB. I know you might be working, but come back at catch it anytime (advantage: FB!).

November topics: 

  • 11/2/21 – Sharon’s Knee program – the basics
  • 11/9/21 – Virabhadrasana – primary/secondary intentions & release valves
  • 11/16/21 – The feet, the golf ball, and just a few minutes a day
  • 11/23/21 – The misunderstood hamstrings
  • 11/30/21 – Give your neck some love 

Awesome Arms

This is partly to hold myself accountable for getting it in. I do a lot of core & leg work in my other classes, but not so much specific to the arms & shoulders. Come join me LIVE on FB on Mondays at 5p and Fridays at 1215p. It’ll be short, quick & precise, 5-10 min max. Watch for posts in the Studio page to let you know what equipment you’ll need – I’ll be alternating dumbbells, bands, TRX… and anything else I have handy! If those times don’t work, you can always catch them later.

Hello, Sunshine

Your guide to everything happening under the moon, the Amber Moon, for week of 10/18/21.

Evolution. It’s been a big word for me lately. Lots of things are evolving over here – programs, the Studio, offerings. Me. I’m evolving too, and figuring out WHERE I want to go, WHAT I want to do.

First big update – at least for me, as it means I’ll be on the computer differently – is that this weekly snapshot is going to bi-monthly starting November 2021. One will come out the beginning of the month, the other mid-month. I’m needing to spend time elsewhere. If you enjoy my chit-chat, and want to stay more connected, please follow me on FB & IG. Lots of good stuff happening over there…. as I evolve, as my use of them evolves. I like being on the technology in smaller chunks. It works much better for my neck.

New stuff

Austin Massage moving indoors on Wednesdays & every other Friday as of 10/29/21

  • 30, 45 & 60 minute sessions available. It’s all open now online. Fridays in November will be the 5th & 19th and go on from there. It misses the holidays. I may add another Friday slot later. Unless you are family, I need 30 min between clients to totally change out the air.
  • 30 min sessions in Austin will only be available for the time being on Wednesdays.

On alternate Fridays – I’m either in Taylor, on a driveway by request, or off. Please check in with me if you’re wanting something that’s not showing for these days. And I’ll be implementing an outcall charge if I’m driving to you for a driveway session. Want to avoid that? Get a 2nd person to schedule. Details still being worked out. More next week.

Taylor Driveway massage is now open for 15, 30, 45 & 60 min sessions, currently on the driveway. Working on getting house projects moved along (much easier now that it’s cooler!), and will keep you apprised of when it comes indoors as well.

For November, I’ll have a few new programs rolling out – I’ll tell you about them next Monday.

Stuff that’s changing

A few things are shifting coming November 1:

  • Walk -to-Run program & Tuesday Track in Taylor are becoming Taylor Track Time. Inclusive of all things I do on the track. Still Tuesdays & Thursdays at 615p. Price is also increasing. We’ll also be doing First Tuesdays & Third Thursdays from a local City of Taylor park for variety.
  • Massage package rates. Because I am paying rent for the new massage space, I need to be more aware of my pricing. You can still get the package so you have sessions on account, but it will no longer be discounted. QUICK! Buy now.
  • Everything Under the Moon is shifting to a 5p start time. Still Tuesday & Thursday.
  • Wednesday Viniyoga will slide from 1030a to 1045a start time. 

Got a few things dropping off the calendar as of November 1:

  • Tues/Fri running in Austin. I’ve been coaching that program – partially thru the Y – for about 6-7 years now. It’s time for a change. My athletes need a change. I need a change. It’s going to evolve (there it is again!) into something. Time will tell what. I’m giving it the time it needs.
  • DIY Reformer. This is the last month for it. Schedule shifts & such are requiring me to take a look at how well things are doing, and as clients return, evolution happens. I need space for those coming back.
  • Yoga >> Meditation is finishing up THIS WEEK. It’s also saying goodbye for now. It may return. We shall see.

Hello, Sunshine

Your guide to everything under the Moon, the Amber Moon, for the week of 10/11/21

It’s Monday. Almost 5p. So you know this is gonna be short. I’ve been good busy. Shifting. Changing. Evolving. Improving.

It’s that time. To bring Austin massages indoor for the inclement weather we might be having. To give you the option of 1 hour. I’ll get more info to you next week, but just know – it’s coming in November. Yes, I found a place.

Taylor will follow suit once I’ve got my house updates a bit farther under way. Patience, Padawan.

Hello, Sunshine!

Your guide to everything under the Moon, the Amber Moon, for the week of 10/4/21

I’m finally beginning to get back in the swing of things. I feel so much better teaching – mentally I’m there. I didn’t realize how much I needed that vacation. Next break will be Thanksgiving (from 12:15p Wed 11/24 – Sunday 11/28/21), and then a few days around Christmas (12/24-27/21; Friday – Monday).

My knee continues to improve, and I post on it a few times a week on Facebook & Instagram. Come share my journey with me.

A Glimpse of the MoonFirst one is up – a small preview of Everything Under the Moon, as well as a knee rehab exercise. I’m gonna guess that it’ll happen a day other than Monday. Yeah, as little technology as possible on Monday is a good thing. It’s on Facebook only. This week will be a little glimpse of DIY reformer.

Pilates privates – return to in person, in Taylor

I’ve given myself a deadline – get the Pilates Studio set up & ready for in person sessions starting January 1. Yes – you’ll be able to get back on the reformer, use the Cadillac tower & chair, and all my other toys. If you can hardly wait – sign up now for regular online sessions to get either back in the swing of it, or to get the basics down – strength your Pilates knowledge, foundation, core & get a better understanding of the movements before adding the big toys. Thirty & 60 min online sessions are currently available, as well as a packages for 60 min and newly created (4) 30 min sessions.

Also, if you get started now, you reserve your in-person spot come January 1 – either at the same time, or different. Get your spot reserved while you can! Once we go to in-person, there will need to be 30 min in between each in-person session to turn over the air and clean the equipment for the next person. Timing may change. Lock your session time in now.

Massages are still going to be on the driveway/in the garage for the foreseeable future. I’ve got fewer Pilates clients, and there’s not the ‘very close proximity’ issue like a massage, so I’m going to ease myself in. Too much COVID around still. Whenever massage comes back inside, like Pilates, there will need to be 30 min between sessions for the air turn over. For now, I’ve got to prep my garage & clean up the other side to be ready for plants, a massage area, and get my car inside for winter.

Evening classes, anyone?

Checking in – anyone out there interested in evening classes? Monday & Wednesday are open. I’ve got Everything Under the Moon on Tuesday & Thursdays 445p, but you might need something later. Let me know. What format?

The Return of Speedrunner

While I was coaching thru the Y, I had a few months where I debuted a new program – Speedrunner. Designed specifically to get runners stronger, faster, more effective. Starting in November, it’ll be layered in to the Thursday Walk-to-Run program. Great for all levels. It incorporates strength, agility, balance, strength, and laughter. Gotta have laughter. I’ll bring out my toys – the speed ladder, cones, medicine balls, & more. Watch for more details to come!

Austin – Massage: The Driveway series

  • Oct 6: Rattan Creek neighborhood – 330p is open

Hello, Sunshine!

Your guide to everything under the Moon, the Amber Moon, for the week of 9/27/21

My personal walk-to-run program has taken the next step – actual walking! This was planned to coincide with vacation. About a month prior, my friend that’s helping me learn Star Magic, and using me as a guinea pig, the knee began to feel remarkably better. Instead of jumping in and starting running again, I took a month to really focus on strengthening the muscles involved – aka everything that crosses the knee. Daily specific exercises in addition to all the classes I teach, biking, and self myofascial release. So that by the time I got to vacation, the knee felt strong.

On the way up to South Dakota, we had lots of little walking breaks as we drove. We visited and did small hikes in 2 national parks. Each time we stopped, I focused on QUALITY walking: Where am I walking from? Is everything engaging that should be, and at the right time? Am I balanced right to left? Does it feel even? Are joints moving like they are supposed to? These questions and more ran thru my head each time I walked. The vacation started with lots of small walks adding up to 1mi (the minimum goal per day), and maxed out at about 4. The knee fatigued on the longer walks, but came back the next day feeling good. Uphills felt great, as long as my technique was good. Downhills were ok. The flats were the most challenging.

Now that I’m home, all the angles eel good. It was the gradual progression that the knee needed. I just still have to go slow and let my pace pick up gradually, and only have to stop and reset myself on occasion now. I’m still continuing my 1mi/day minimum, have resumed biking, and on Tuesday, all the Studio classes resume. I’ve registered for a 5k here in Taylor with my Walk-to-Run/Tuesday Track peeps – I’ll walk it. I want at least a month of ‘just’ walking before I start running. That said, I’ve also got a trail race I’m registered for in November – I won’t be running much by then. I’m ok with hiking it though. I need to build my endurance for the 6.2 miles I’ll need to cover.

And I’ll be using pics from my vacation for the Hello Sunshine background pic here for a bit. We all get to enjoy it!

New stuff coming – on Social Media

Once my brain got a break, I got new ideas churning – an these will be posted on Facebook and/or Instagram. These will be weekly things starting in the next few weeks:

  • Get a glimpse of the Moon (name still in process) – but the idea is a “sneak peak” or “dive deeper” into what all goes on here at Amber Moon Studio – classes, private sessions, my way of thinking, process, cool stuff I’ve learned. You get the gist? This will be a LIVE video – most likely on Mondays, but I’ll need to see how things go. It’ll also be at a random time as I figure it out. And it’ll depend on my mood. Do it before I go train, after lunch, before I start any evening clients? Who the heck knows. I’ll try to post on FB with an approx. time, but you can also catch it on the replay. Plans are it’ll get moved over to YouTube as well.
  • Evolution of an Athlete, and Evolution of a Coach – following a few of my athletes as they relive their journey with me, as well as my journey as a coach. You’ll get one post on FB & IG weekly.

Did you do YouTube classes while I was out?

Did you come up with any titles AND descriptions so you can get your $10 credit on your account? Email them to me along with the link to the video, and I’ll see if its a keeper!

Hello, Sunshine!

Your guide to everything under the moon, the Amber Moon, for the week of 9/13/21.

Just a reminder – the Studio is CLOSED this week after Tuesday. I need a real break. Not an “I’m moving to my new house” break. I’m gonna be off the grid. I’m disconnecting.

So, to keep you moving, I’ve created a YouTube playlist to keep you entertained while I’m out. While I try to balance out the viniyoga & Pilates on such playlists, it’s a little more viniyoga.

Want to get a $10 credit on your account? Watch one of the videos – it can be this playlist or any others on my YouTube channel, write a brief description, give it a title, send it to me. If I use it, you get $10 toward any future service.

Hello Sunshine

Your guide to everything under the moon, the Amber Moon, for the week of 9/6/21.

Firstly, Y E S! I’m getting this out early cuz I’m WORKING on LABOR DAY. It’s open on my calendar but you may need to email me to book your session if it doesn’t show up. Try booking on line first, please. I’m open from 2-6p, with 415 and later already filled. Taylor sessions only.

Studio updates

I’m working on Studio updates – and that includes small price increases. These changes will take effect 9/14/21. While I’m hesitant to do so in these COVID times, I need to be able to make ends meets better. Small changes – hopefully a big impact for me. Book your sessions NOW before the prices change; even if your session is after 9/14 as it’ll change once I change it in the system. Here’s a list of the price changes:

If it’s not listed above, it’s remaining the same.

Let’s make a deal

Remember I asked last week what it would take for you to come to classes? You’ve had a chance to think about it, so:

While I had been intending for an indoor Austin space for October, I’m gonna keep it on the driveway while our COVID cases stay up. Being inside is just not appealing at the moment. I’ll revisit once we are IN October.
