quick notes

I’m sitting at my desk on a Sunday (which isn’t too bad). I’m prepping for a business trip to Atlanta tomorrow and trying to catch up on some back work. Yesterday I started to learn the Chinese Broadsword (which rocks). I also just got a key to the new school and I can’t say how excited I am about that. Basically I can go and train whenever! I keep coming back to how important the Martial Arts are for me. It really struck me while working slow sparring with Sifu Mark that they are such a total expression of body, mind and soul. Sometimes it really feels like I’m playing chess (with the exception that I’m both the conrolling force and the peice itself).
