Time to start something new

For the past few days, I've been flipping through the Firenze Spettacolo looking for a new class to take. September is the month when everything seems to start up again, and somehow it feels inspiring to me to do something new. Alessandro and I feel like doing something new. We've talked about taking classes in Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, or Jujitsu.

We don't know enough to make a well-informed choice, so we want to check out the places that offer the classes. Luckily for us the ones we're interested in are close to our apartment. A few of them have a free prova (try) before signing up, but the times are not convenient for us both.

So much seems to be going on at this time of year. Friends want to meet up after the holidays, people suddenly want to get work done, and I have a few ideas I'd like to focus on myself.

Many of the locals have been away for the estate and had the chance to recharge their batteries, and now the city is on the verge of starting up again. I love the energy that September brings. I just hope I get some free time to explore our options and see what new class we can attend this year.
