after two weeks of slogging it out developing aiki, i'll take a relatively short flight to Toronto, where i'll meet yet another martial giant--Vladimir Vasiliev. i'm not sure my mind, body, or spirit, would be able to absorb so much experience from two very [seemingly] distinct worlds in such a short space of time, but i'm certainly getting moist thinking about it!
one way or the other--for better of for worse, this trip is going to be a game changer for me, i feel. perhaps i'm willing it to be so; to make some sort of decisive determination of where i go from here. even if i return to status quo, then i will do so with a quiet mind--not one wrestling with doubts and questions. well, is that necessarily a bad thing? ahh--there it goes again. let's see what happens over the coming weeks, and what happens. no point presupposing too much at this time. what will be will be.
