Expect to drop
. If you are not dropping you are not pushing your limits and will not develop.
Laugh about your mistakes
and learn from them.
. Have definite ambitions on the frontier of your ability.
Enjoy the practice
. Don't be so focussed on your goals that you miss the all the
along the way.
. Don't compare yourself against others. The only meaningful comparison is with yourself, yesterday, last week and last year.
Stick with it
. Some days it'll come easy and some days nothing will work. Keep coming back and giving it your best shot.
Find your own
. Find the thing that you are good at and polish it up to bring out the natural shine.
Learn to pass
. The possibilities and fun multiply with the number of people involved. Teach others.
Look after your props
. Get the
best you can afford
treat them with respect
. When the time comes that you can find no more use for them, find someone who can and
pass them on
Don't take it all too seriously
. It's only a bit of fun and not important in the
grander scheme of things
I like it!

We chose to become meat
There's a silver lining through the dark cloud shining
An old coat
A hand making promises
(because this was always subconsciously the inspiration, even if I did not know it at the time, and I only realised it just now)
The boy stood on the burning deck
connect and disconnect
