After seeing people reblog my old Taiko pics and video.
I have this intense nostalgia. I miss being active in the group and having that thrill from performing. But I know things have run its course, so I will endure until I finish out my “term”.
At this point, I would much rather be a spectator and learn that way. Because who am I kidding? The last time I was taught a song from start to finish was a year or two ago.
I love Taiko. But I’ve realized, for quite some time, that what I wish to learn will not be found from this group.
There. I said it.
It was during the first spin after the “Soku Sai Enmei” part. It always felt awkward because I would step with my right first instead of my left, but it wasn’t until I had other experienced members demonstrate that I realized I was doing it wrong.
How sad that after two senseis and 10+ active members, nobody corrected me. I would have remembered if someone did because I am a perfectionist, and I make sure to correct mistakes so it sticks.
