Waking up

This morning I woke up and was still in a dream...remembering it...trying to make it last...holding on to the experience.
Haven't had that in a while...waking up...ready to make the most of the day...thinking about this day and every day as one moment day...each one it's own group of individual moments. Each day, one day. This life, one life. One chance to learn as much as possible. Remembering how much fun it is to be a student...the joy of learning just to learn.

Some days...

Everyday is a different and new day. When you wake up, it's another chance for you to make choices and have individual and unique moments in your life that only exist for you :)

It just sucks when you wake up feeling like crap :0
Well, at least it's unique and individual crap ;)

Common Sense

If you are reading this and don't have health insurance, you need to get health insurance. Go do it now. Blue Cross, Kaiser, Aetna, blah blah...whatever. You just need to have something. If you don't think you can afford it, how do you think you can afford a 5, 10, or 20 thousand dollar hospital/doctor bill?

Back on the horse...

I hear from a lot of people that they have to stop training for a while for whatever reason: money, injury, frustration, life...etc. Sometimes the hardest thing is going back...taking that first step to get back on the mat knowing that it's not only going to be somewhat difficult and painful (to both the body and the mind) but also that it can signify some sort of (re)-commitment to something bigger than just going to a jiu-jitsu class.
And so it is with me and this blog. I transferred it over and posted training tips for a while on But after a while, didn't really feel like I had much to say. So that eventually turned into an internet hiatus. I'm not sure that I have much to say now either, but here I am, back on the "mat" after some time off. Will I just be back for a few classes/posts and disappear again? Or am I back for a while?
Any questions, comments, thoughts, etc. are all welcome. The dialogue has begun.
Let's see where it takes us...
