I sat on the padded floor, the back of my newly-trimmed hair fluffy with sweat and my body sore from the exercise.

As I sat there, I watched the aikido master with his students, and contemplated my story and my characters.  

All at once I realized that this would be perfect.  Aikido would be how She would find peace.

It would be how her journey to normality would begin.

Yesterday after work, a friend of mine invited me to join her at a free Aikido class being held at a local church.  I’ve been wanting to go for some time, but have always forgotten; by the time I’m done with a work day, usually I am thinking all in pictures:








But yesterday, my friend texted me and reminded me of Aikido!  That seemed much more appealing than simply going home and doing nothing, so I went along with her.

I was not disappointed!  Though I’m sore this morning, I felt like it can become a GREAT addition to my lifestyle.

Now, if I can only remember to GO on Monday and Wednesday evenings!

*Regardless, this is how I felt last night:

Question:  Have you ever tried any form of martial arts?  What did you like about it?  What did you hate?  


Refers to the tripping while standing there, and absolutely nothing else in the clip. (:46 to :51 .)
