Friday third of June in the sunshine next to the pin, after the rain because the ground is wet, the grass is wet, the parts of the bark of the pine that are towards the west are wet ,too. Obviously the wind comes from southwest and the rain has been hitting the trunk from that side. Also, that's the side where the branches don't reach that low so they're not protecting. But I mean, the point doesn't need protection from the rain on the contrary. There are lots of people in the park, small kids from the kindergarten having some sort of running competition with some plastic markers along the paths but a lot of youngsters, too. And of course the ordinary, normal people walking their dogs or jogging. There are moments on wind like now, which seems like changing direction or maybe I'm imagining. I thought about, while practicing today, especially when balancing with my arms raised, I thought about what Magdalena Zamorska asked me a few days ago, namely how I do relate to the pine, what role does the pine have? Or what is the relationship? And I immediately replied that the pine is my teacher. Yes, I remember already in Örö, I made a video called The Pine's Apprentice. But of course this idea of the pine as a teacher, then I should be able to explain what am I learning from the pine. So, of course, purely technically you could say that in the first part with the Tai Chi pose I learn grounding, or taking my power from the ground, be earth bound. And in the second practice, the becoming tree or the tree pose, the yoga pose, I'm learning to reach up towards the sky, to balance, to yeah, to stretch up and especially balance. And then the third practice which is actually not really a practice at all, holding on to the cold, damp branch of the pine and looking out from between its needles, I maybe learn appreciation or just contact with others unlike myself. But maybe, strictly speaking, the main thing I learn with the pine tree is of course the act of returning to the pine, the stamina or stubbornness or persistence needed in repeating the practice. But that is something that I somehow think I already know a little bit about already. So maybe I should think more of, instead of keeping learning what I already know, or practicing that, what new skills should I try to learn from the pine or from some other pine? What, yeah, what would I need a teacher for? That's something to think about. But enough for today. I'm hurrying to the island, still, three more days. So I'll see you tomorrow. Bye bye.
