Onegaishimasu. What a sad time for you! Perhaps it is because you were still early into your aikido journey, and had not gotten yet to the place where aikido becomes more than what you do, where it becomes what you are. That particular gift of aikido is always there waiting. Learning to do sitting and standing bows help us build bridges that help us cross deep places, dark places, and find some courage to fit aikido into our life, our life into aikido. I would hope that you will please go on from here, even as you are carried.
