My good friends Kjartan Clausen (who maintains the wonderful AikidoFAQ (http://www.aikodofaq.com) site and Maria (aka AikiDance) were recently married on July 7th, 2002. I've known these two for years now and have had the opportunity to train with both of them (and even made it to Maria's shodan exam a few years back). Kjartan's amazing FAQ site (http://www.aikidofaq.com) was one of my impetuses to start this site as well. I'm sure a countless number of people have visited his site and been helped with the wealth of information on there. Maria's dojo is starting to put up video clips (http://www.directmind.com/maria_kjartan.htm) on their site which is a great touch. In any case, I wish the two of them all the happiness in the world for many, many years to come. Congratulations!

Congradulations! The true spirit of harmony is in entering and blending with another. The journey is meant to be shared.

Until again,
