It should go without saying, but sometimes we are moved to speak, from our own feelings. My opinion is only that, and while it may not amount to much, I can firmly say that I found this article to be most excellent. One of the best things I've read on Budo. Many thanks.

Thanks AJ....thanks for reminding to stay awake. I often see what I expect to see instead of what I could see if I really looked and listened,
