    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.

    My memory is getting better, and I won't trust this practice to memory. I shall set my phone to 1:45 p.m. tomorrow May 24th, 2020, then to begin 2:00 p.m.
