Tough, but Good Call ED.

I had been computerless for a few days, and was unaware of Alba's detention. It is not surprising, since it came on the heels of his banishment from the DF (the same time he appeared here).

My post to Alba was intended to help. Upon his response, I knew that he was not going to learn, thus, I chose to not reply further. I do not believe that he will have grown even after the month's end.

The most beautiful part of the dance is often found in between the steps... and in the movement within the stillness.

me neither - but as I see it, my job is to give everyone their own chance to negate the 'benefit of the doubt'

Really?  Several people seemed to think he was.  However, its easy to get it wrong since there is really no way to find out - if you are not a mod that is.

I suppose you have to be way worse than him to get banned Roll Eyes
Actually this discussion belongs in the topic in PDO discussions please...

with a bit of experience and attention, that quickly becomes obvious. Wink

but i don't see any problem in that. such is life... everything is an exchange of energy. that is what commerce is. Smiley

Yes, I would agree on that. I often tell my students to think of it as them being business partners owning and running a factory.

My teacher made it very clear to us that we needed to think of our dancing as a business and that it didn't really matter whether we were amateurs or professionals.

Oh, if that was the context then I stand corrected.
Or rather I sit doing it, hard to stand after my day ... Shocked (and not even dancing)

that our conscious brain has no clue how to use the knee joint without damaging it.

that it's virtually impossible to work from a lower potential (physical) to a higher potential (mental) because our brains and bodies aren't hard-wired that way.

that good footwork doesn't come from concentrating on footwork.
