So tonight is the my first night at Aikido of Plano. I observed a class last week, and decided to try it. I did Aikido for about a month, 16 years ago. At the time my work schedule and some other issues just didn’t allow me to continue. So now, older and in worse shape, I’m going to give it a whirl. I’ve never lost interest, but now it is very convenient. Hopefully skateboarding has helped preserve my physical condition. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to it, and looking forward to being a total beginner at something. I’m trying to empty my mind of preconceptions so I’ll be totally open to the teaching.

I’ll probably be really sore tomorrow.
