As I was playing the few bars leading up to this section, my thought was "go wide." A succinct and distilled expression of AT inviting in a few precious moments of freedom from the mule of habits. I need to be alive within this animal that I am, open to freedom in the moment of doing, directing how I use myself to play my instrument. Certainly habits are useful, but awareness more so. And new more efficient habits can be created, directed, and put in place. But more important than any individual habit, is the need to continue to grow in awareness of how I am doing anything. As I have known for years, how I do one thing, is how I do everything. While new habits can manifest, this is not easy - practice, ongoing practice is the key.
