The qualitative dimension of victory
I was watching a basketball game last night.  I've taken to basketball with enthusiasm due to the remarkable overlap that I see between it and karate.  Before I get to the thought that I wanted to discuss I'll outline that overlap, as I see it, thusly: 1) B...

Not entirely sure if I'm just another pathetic victim-basher...I guess it takes courage to suggest something unpleasant.
Just a simple thought for you all, because I'm only partially invested in this recent issue. I've never watched or listened to Jian Ghomeshi – always found him kind of goofy in that same hipster/poser/"CBC-approved-edginess" light that I consider George Stroumboulopoulos.

"It shouldn’t be easier to get past the front desk of our seat of national government than enter a suburban fitness club."

This was a quaint takeaway from my visit to Parliament as well.

A true warrior is concerned with one thing: fighting battles.  But they are just one small part in the cycle between conflict and community.  Why don't people also aspire to be peacemakers?

"To live will be an awfully big adventure..." - Robin Williams as Peter Pan in 'Hook' God, that quote is something, isn't it? The line from the book is "To die would be an awfully big adventure." Peter says it to suggest that even a greater adventure lies ahead. At the end of the play and the ...

To my Grandchildren...
Grandtots, Here goes. *** She sits there. She sits there like a Vulcan with Bendii syndrome. I sit near enough to be close and far enough to see her completely. At a distance I can feel the maelstrom, the turmoil, the bubbling broth of her emotion. Fear. Anguish. Worry. Her face scrunches up and ...

This should be inspirational. Instead I feel lazy and weak.

These insights into the difference between mass karate teaching and a true apprenticeship in karate are essential.  To some people, you teach karate.  But to others, you teach so that they'll be able to teach karate. Those two different types of people should be treated very differently.

Mr. Jewell, I'm not expecting a response. I appreciate your efforts to act as an apologist for the police profession – they clearly do more good than harm. The fact that they do so much good is what makes these perceived lapses so difficult to fathom. With respect to your statement above, ...

What do I want to be when I grow up? I want to be ready...
Introduction
I think. I practise. I fight.  But I am not violent.  I stop fights. I think about fighting.   I think about keeping people safe.  I think about how to stop fights. I think about what is worth fighting for.  I think about how to fight for what is worth fighting for.  I think about dying.  I think about what is worth dying for. I practice what I think. And then I write.

The process above is known as karate.  I am committed to this process.

Delicious. Mouth is still tingling. Good food isn't rocket science. Super fast service; piping hot food that is spicy and flavorful...and all effortlessly done. A new gem discovered in my backyard.
