Re: Half a Tatami
Thank you Francis and Billy. Francis' comments about riding the waves juxtaposed with Billy's comment about the north of Japan reminded me of once when I was by the sea in Miyagi. It was a cold day and the sea was a little wild but there was one surfer. Paddling out and coming in. Paddling out and coming in. I've never surfed but I like the parallel of aikido and surfing. Not fighting nature - respecting it. Not using the sea - embracing it and becoming one with it. Hey maybe I should start...
