I've been off that mat for a couple of weeks. Work has piled up and taken over my evenings, and I've had some things to do on the weekends, conflicting with the class I usually teach on Saturdays.
I'm really looking forward to getting back on the mat ... about 45 hours from now.
I've also started doing CrossFit training, so I'm sore in ways I haven't felt in decades, and I'm really craving the movements in Aikido. I plan to run the class in such a way that I can participate through most of it.
That's it. Just sharing my joy.
