I was recently chatting with my one of my Aikido buddies on the other side of the country, Mark Harrington. We've been checking in from time to time as we both progress through our respective ranks in different organizations. Mark is a bit ahead of me. Anyway, we got to talking about holiday gift giving (or not). If I recall correctly, I promised him a solstice haiku. So here it is, on the first day of Winter. Enjoy.
"Hey! How's it going?"
We call across the distance.
Friends on the same path.
