Heard on my Pandora station this morning: “I feel like I’m walking a tightrope without a circus act.” Eminem, “Rock Bottom,” The Slim Shady LP
The good news: I had an extraordinary day climbing yesterday, cruising up a couple of walls that would have defeated my utterly when I took it back up again last month. On the advice of my much more experienced climbing partner, I’ve confined myself to relatively easy walls for the last couple of weeks so that I could focus on technique. That helped immensely. It’s natural to improve in bursts rather than steadily, but it still felt strange to find myself moving with such decision and ease.
Neutral news: Today I’ll be doing my interim review at work. I’m a bit anxious, of course, but I always like having an opportunity to get feedback on my performance.
