A rosy-fingered dawn greeted the PAX who gathered for a beatdown set to 90s music, freshly imported from actual compact discs that were listened to in the 1990s.
Warmorama: Sidestraddle hops during Live’s “I Alone” with a burpee for “I Alone.” Arm circles, Daisy pickers and calf stretches.
The Thang: PAX choose two cards from the dexicon, do the exercise (number card = 30+, royal = 50, Ace + 100). After two cards completed, sprint to goal post, job 75% to the chair placed half way, jog the rest of the way. Repeat. The 90s glory kept drawing the runners back to the deck.
Moleskin: F3 talks about “the Warrior” (mentioned previously), so we discussed “the King” from Rohr’s From Wild Man to Wise Man:
The calm king sitting on his throne is the archetype of centeredness and security within himself. He is, therefore, a symbol of fertility and creativity within himself. To be in the king’s good graces is to be at the core. The king in a man is secure neough to recognize, affirm and bless goodness when he sees it inn others. he is not threatened by the growth or maturity of others, because he knows and loves who he himself is. You cannot threaten the king because he does not need you, or even need your admiration. He is the principle of healthy autonomy and very clear boundaries. the greater the king, the bigger the realm he is able to hold together. Some are kings for their own limited racial group, some hold together a “rainbow coalition,” others preside over the whole domain and hold it together in unity. Thus Christians rightly speak of Jesus as “King of kings” because his universal rain “falls on the good and bad, the just and the unjust.”
COT: Cooper, mothers, FIA sister group, Dr. Phil’s boro, Saga’s friend, Big Mac’s students.
NOR: (can anyone tell me what NOR means? I think it means people who showed): FNG: @Draper, @Banks, @SAGA, @Banks, @Beaker, @BigMac, @Katniss, @Shiplap, @Tortuga, @Panhandle, @Jolly, @DaVinci Q
Bonus: Summary of coffeteria discussion: We discussed the extreme stress of football coaching culture (and American work culture in general), the cost to families, and the sacrifices necessary for “greatness,” sacrifices that are often not worth it. Better a whole person perhaps than to give it all to exceed in one area.
