How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
Oh, no biggie, but I disagree with not getting lessons. Find a starter group lesson at a local range. They are cheap and will help to prevent bad habits. The range by me normally does a series of 4 group lessons over a month for under $100 that includes all the balls you can hit. The net cost of the lessons is about $50. They are trying to build business and get you hooked. If you can find something like that out by you, IMO it is the way to go.
Also, do you have a video camera and a tripod? Tape yourself at the range. You will be amazed at what you think you are doing vs. what you really are doing.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
