I had another testing dream last night. It was just the beginning of the test and the floor was crowded with testers. I almost forgot I was supposed to line up because I’m so used to just being a helper. I had a little trouble getting my socks and shoes on. I was wearing my favorite sweater, which I know is going to be awfully hot.
The test starts and I’m called out before the board. Sifu asks me what is it that causes constriction when a piece of clothing is too tight. At first I couldn’t think of the answer and was about to say that I didn’t know. Then I remembered: tension in the body.
This is my reminder to myself to relax.
