I think I'm gonna go to Aikido-Ai's annual Memorial Weekend Retreat at Mt. Baldy. It looks like a lot of fun.
Give my best to McGgouirk Sensei and his people. He is one of my favorites and they are some of the best to make you feel welcomed.
I always told him I would attend if he didn't do it on my wife's birthday. Even a Zen lunatic isn't that crazy.
Empty the mind, you will be filled.
