A happy and fulfilling 2011 to you.

For the rest of January I’ll be in Guanajuato, Mexico. I’ll be studying Spanish at a language school there, and I’ll be living with a local family. I am quite excited.

I imagine my brain cells will be quivering after being immersed in a language and a culture I do not know. Wow. I’ll write some kind of Tenacity Notes from Guanajuato, but with a quivering brain, who knows what I’ll have to say? Maybe just Hola Amigos! (amigos y amigas? ya’ll?)

In the meantime, I’m thinking about resistance. I’m thinking about resistance (to life, to me, to my own potential, to being open and vulnerable) and how it shows up in my body. I’m thinking about resistance and the opposite of resistance — allowing. Allowing life. Allowing others to be who they are. Allowing me to be who I am. Allowing the unknown. I’m thinking about allowing, and how allowing shows up in my body.
