Mix of Regulars and Drop Ins.
We have had fire out here and you stop breathing when there is a fire. You get all tight and become anxious. Today, we woke up with a wind change and the air was clear, so took advantage of it to twist and open up the lung space again. I also wanted to continue the twisting balance theme that arose on Wednesday. Still feels Rough, but like where it seems to be going. Ran out of time today.
