My Perfect Life

I sometimes catch myself wondering what my life would be like if I had discovered the Alexander Technique as a teenager. Would losing the ‘tallest kid’s stoop back then have led to more confidence? Would I have had the courage to audition for college chorus? Felt more articulate? Could those terrible back spasms in my 30’s been averted?

Tom Weiser, an Alexander Technique teacher from Boulder Colorado, tells a funny story on The Moth about alternate lives that had me chuckling… and thinking hmmm.

I think that the Alexander Technique has helped me to undo a lot of the awkward habits I learned back then. But I would be a different Holly if I time travelled back to nip them in the bud. If we met, me and she, what would our impression of each other be?
