Last week, a friend of mine gave a clinic at our place, mostly for the people who come over to train and have some problems that are over my head.  So I took the opportunity to get some advice too, and it helped me get some things straight.  I hope it sticks :)

Since this was just a clinic, and not a trial, I was able to get outside help when I found myself in a tricky spot:

I'm sorry the picture is so big.  Facebook is acting up and I can't change it there

Clinics are also a time for reflection and for profound thought:

That's all the wisdom I could handle for the day :)  .  But Tomek is coming back for another clinic (I kind of like the idea of watching someone else work themselves silly) soon, so maybe there will be more :) .

 

It was a very nice clinic, since Tomek and I have known each other for a long time, and I managed to surprise him by having Darinka do her trademark silent OLF.
