Dennis was my aikido teacher.
Which is an intimate way
to not know somebody....
I hugged him.
I held on long as I could.
I said that I loved him.
And then I let him go.
Many thoughts and feelings race through my own mind and heart on reading your post, Paul...dim memories of Dennis, the few times I met him, and vivid ones of my own late teacher...all I can say is thank you for writing/posting this.
