What a wonderful article! It has been a treat to hear about your trip over the last couple of months, and everyone in the dojo is still working on the new things you and Ryan have brought from Okazaki...but I really appreciate reading this new perspective. Thanks for sharing.

See you soon!

Thanks mj, Chuck, and Jonathan. I felt a little concern that this article may have ranged too far afield from aikido. I'm glad to know you read it and enjoyed it.

It reminded me of, and deepened my appreciation of, several members of my family.

Absolutely beautiful article, and in my opinion, everything to do with Aikido.

May I add my thanks and appreciation to those already expressed.

Thank you very much for that great column.

Thank you, Anton. I think this is my favorite of my aikido stories even if it's not really so much about aikido.
