Today's equine experiential learning program went well. I had fun. My very accommodating guinea pigs/friends, B, M, and R, arrived on time and ready to engage; which I really appreciate. Some of the exercises are uncomfortable for me, but usually give me a new perspective and good information about myself. They were all great sports. And I think they all ultimately had fun. They gave me some helpful feedback about what worked and what didn't. One of the goals of this experience is to let people see how much of the world is their own projection of it. By understanding how much we bring to our interactions, we can change our experience of the world. On that note, I had a great time! I was prepared, dealt with the last-minute changes to plan (considering that it was a busy Sunday at the barn), and left the rest in the hands of fate and perception. A really nice day. Totally exhausted. I had to go to Berkeley to drop B off at his girlfriend's house. Traffic at College and Ashby is always hideous, but I was too tired to worry much, and luckily I enjoy talking to him. I feel a lot more comfortable with him now that he's started seriously dating someone. When he first started coming to LS, it seemed that every time I looked around the room, he was staring at me. I think that's just his way? (S's sponsor does that too. Used to freak me out and wonder what S had told him. I like him, though I've never talked to him in person. Just smiled at him and he smiled back. He has a nice smile.) Anyway, B reminded me a lot of G. Which immediately drew me to him and also made me want to run away. Now that I've spent some time with him, he doesn't remind me of G so much. He just seems like B. All in all, a busy, fun, full weekend. Now back to work. Must catch ferry into city in the morning for a meeting. Not a bad way to start the work week!
