Blending. I'm feeling sooo stupid and very inadequate right now.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.

That instant of contact; how to genuinly connect center to center, maintain it without struggle and be sensitive to the shifting en/yo cycle, the sometimes soft, sometimes forceful dynamic occuring naturally in the moment.

My main focus is being thankful that I am still learning and continuing to get on the mat and then find my way home again.

Cool short list

1. Stay flexible.

2. Remember all ken and jo kata and aiki-ken and aiki-jo movements.

3. Remain cool when students who show up once a month complain that they're not improving.

To get physically better so I can drive to and from practice.

Not to rip and tear the muscles and tendons of my partners because I am using my muscles instead of gaging the muscle tension in my partners.

Generally, keeping the room from spinning like an airplane spiraling into a devastaing crash while I take ukemi.

Waking up each day to know I have the chance to try to practice Aikido either with my friends in class, or study on my own.

Everything after that ... is easy.

I've been working on having more fun, not criticizing myself in the moment.

Show up, relax, breathe, and enjoy myself. The rest is just doing whatever Sensei tells me to do.

Until again,

Been focusing a lot lately on more precise footwork, as well as centering and moving from my hips. That and

zanshin.
