Onegaishimasu. So Dalen, the thread is about your first aikido memory. I think you've posted three times now; surely you have discovered beginner's mind! But the thing is, our first aikido memory is what it is. We may remember something else later on, but that something else can't be first.
You have a point for sure Mark - and my apologies going down memory lane.
One memory of the ripped pants came first, but as strong was the one of the 2nd Kyu becoming tired of me not getting the gist of how to move in the beginning.
One was my right brains first memory, and the other was my left brains.
Just in case you were serious about being concerned about my 3 post...the third one was replying to someone else.
You know, conversation, being nostalgic together...having fun in the forum. (Didnt take it as a strict, solemn ceremony.)
