Blog Article: "Remember you are dust..."
Posted 3/16/2012 5:02pm [from Jun Akiyama]

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: "Iíd been gone from the old dojo for more than a year when it finally closed. Thatís when my dojo-colleague Mary appeared at the new dojo. Maryís 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."
