    At the end of the discussion, I went home realizing the parallels to what they spoke of about mhsic
    compared to what I have learned with dance. Misdirection is not an easy technique to pull if practiced
    poorly. That’s where I try too work on it, certainly, and I try
    to respond instead of react.
