Re: Feel the Finesse

In relationships it's the same way. It's not only about showing up on assigned holidays with the appropriate gift and card, but about showing up everyday and making sure the other person is okay and knows they are accepted, appreciated, and loved.
You put into words something that has been on my mind for a very long time. So hard to find people in the world who truly think, and more importantly act, this way.

Finesse cannot be seen because it is fluid and effortless. Finesse cannot be explained because it is illusive and subtle. Finesse can only be felt, and what is felt is best described in what is not felt.
I know this feel because I have it as an equestrian. I look forward to the day I find the beginning of it in aikido as well.

Very nice article. Thank you.
