I love the diversity of the blogs on Aiki Web and I haven't even gotten to many of them. Several of you mention music, here and in the forums.

Just a few random thoughts in general (and it is the name of this category)

Several of you have mentioned cleaning, it is interesting to note what happens to me when someone suggests having music on the radio when I clean. My mind goes, like, Oh No! Music gets to me so I can't concentrate on anything else.

My grandmother had the same thing, a piece of music would go thru her head for days. So today mine is Message in a Bottle, I think it's by Sting, I love music by Sting, the Police, Men at Work etc. and I'm not even sure of most of the words, the music just gets to me, it's really great.

But today it refers to my feelings about Aiki Web. No I'm not beached upon some shore, but if I were, there's maybe not a million bottles with messages, but there are so many to read all over the columns, forums and blogs that it's hard to keep up.

But maybe this quirk of my grandmother's applies to Aikido too, the techniques. Even if you haven't really practiced for years they are still there and if someone mentions it you can almost see it again.

What more can I say? These things will always be part of us, thanks for the messages, the techniques are coming back to me too.

Niall, thanks for supplying some of the words I forgot from that classic (80's?) tune. I have been thinking about your blog and forum topic about Tatemae, it is fascinating, and I'll write a comment or post on it later....

wow great messages, and I didn't even have to go to the seashore to find them. Responding late due to unprecedented snow levels here, ice storm today, etc. but the season has its own beauty. I wanted to respond to each. Thank you so much, friends.

Who can forget Jim Croce's nostalgic "Time in a bottle", where wishes have a chance, perchance, to become reality. Perhaps the "message" here is that we must do our utmost on a daily basis to deliver such important transmissions directly, and not depend on the vagaries of waves and the fragility of glass.
