Penguins on lava

I am playing hockey with work folks this week. I went on skates for the first time this week since age 10. I didn’t do too badly. I think it’s good to do something new. I saw Tom Deater skate around the rink like a pro, and I hope that’s how I look in a kayak. Humility should be your first lesson as a teacher. I’ve been dunking Tom for about two weeks, and I feel a failure as a teacher to instruct rolling. He is getting closer, but I can’t tell if it is my fault/help that is getting him there.
