As I was washing the dojo windows today I relished the breeze that cooled my face and the dappled sunlight dancing on the blue cheer floor that covers our dojo floor.

Soon the dojo will be filled with aikidoka rolling, falling, smiling, doing kata with and without weapons.

Rhythmic mat slapping and quiet shuffle of bare feet will again sooth our souls.

All month I have been doing my ki exercises, weapons work and stretching in the peaceful early morning air. Now I am ready for everyone to come back. Aikido is a shared experience. The exchange of energy and roles even us out. The consistent meeting of body and mat beat the truth into us. We leave class clear and refreshed ready to meet the world for another day.
