This blog article entitled "Remember you are dust..."
is a collection of reminiscences from Donald Schnell, a reverend in San Francisco. Included in his memories are those of dojo friend Mary Stein whom he met on the mat thirty years ago. From the article:
"I'd been gone from the old dojo for more than a year when it finally closed. That's when my dojo-colleague Mary appeared at the new dojo. Mary's courage impressed me again, a slight woman, now approaching eighty joining this fast, vigorous practice. Her courage impressed me, but I was also a bit chagrinned when she, after joining the new dojo more than a year after me, completed successfully re-tested for black belt more than a year ahead of me."
