I had all the supplies I needed to start the first few lessons. So I figured there was no time like the present.
The first exercise wasn’t as bad as I’d expected. I’d have thought it would be much worse given my motor function issues. The requirement is that you draw from the shoulder. And it gets progressively worse as my shoulder pain increases.
By the time I got to the last line on the 2nd page I couldn’t take the pain anymore. So I took a break, meditated and had a cup of coffee.
This bit was really disappointing. For most of these I either hesitated, came up short or overshot. I was having a little trouble controlling my arm. Maybe I overused it. Time will tell I suppose.
I find myself wondering if you can combine these lessons with a traditional course.
