I have been working steady at the city job now for a couple of few weeks. It is not that hard, but not easy starting a totally physical job at this age. I am looking at it as “Fu” training as everything is that anyway. This is my upper body training paid workout time. I am only doing it two days a week. It helps survival protocol 1.
Meaning most of our, my work has been “bush” clearing on overgrown land. The Sempai cut with power saws, I rake, and gather, then load on truck. After the Sempai have done with their cutting, then I get some help. One would think, oh ,just bushes… This gets heavy fast with a lot of them. Additionally a lot of this work has been on a hillside of some sort. Sometimes Holes, glass bottles, trash. The other day a sempai said something to me. It took me a long time and being shown a dead one on a stick, that he was talking about snakes.
Everything is training, the world is our Dojo. Makes things more interesting, less boring. It really is a meditation practice. This fork, this groups of bushes, lifting this load.
