More than a week later. My wife has been working long hours and I'm still scared to bring my 7 year old to practice. I don't want to hear the "Daddy, I'm bored!" routine in the middle of class.

I'm very glad I went tonight. As usual we had a great class. There was one technique (no, I can't remember the names) that I just couldn't get and just couldn't get and then, all of a sudden, a light bulb turning on in my head and I could do it right just about every time! That was a very cool feeling. I really enjoy how sensei teaches. We start with a very basic move and then we add more and more things to it. Tonight we ended on a very graceful and beautiful technique. I need to start learning the names of these things.

Driving home is always trippy. I have pretty bad astigmatism and I wear contacts during aikido practice. Apparently I have dry eyes, and when I'm driving home, my eyes are dry. This makes the astigmatism halo around every light source really exagerated. It's like I've been eating magic 'shrooms - visually at least. Combined with the endorphines from practice, they must be some GOOD 'shrooms.
