pandemic practices

i love that bruce lee quote: “Under duress, we do not rise to our expectations – we fall to the level of our training.”

another similiar quote from lee: “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

and earlier this week, bernice shared with me this quote from sujin lee (which came to her as a result of practice with the legendary strategist, norma wong).


in these pandemic days i am infinitely curious about people’s practices. lama rod owens and rev. angel kyodo williams often cite the classic buddhist principle: all we have is our practice.

yesterday, i had a lovely phone call with my dear friend (and friend of many), rachel plattus. while both walking many states apart, we talked about what practices had been holding us and here are a few that have been holding me lately:

what are you practicing these days?

ps - i am also interested in practices that people are moving with in formations/organizations. if you see/hear anything interesting (including if you are the one leading it), let me know!
