I just want to take a few minutes to say thanks. I figured it was fitting being Thanksgiving and all. I Thank all of my friends, family, strangers, and enemies who have supported, subscribed, read, and spread this blog over the past 11 months. I know, a lot of you I promised bribes to if you read it, and I’m sorry I haven’t delivered, but… you’re still reading it, aren’t you? In all seriousness, thank you. Writing this blog has changed my life, and I won’t get all deep and cranberry saucey right here on ya, but please know, I appreciate all of your kind words of support. A lot of you have joined the conversation here at Aiki Living, and that’s great. I hope you’ve gotten as much out of it as I have. To all of my Aikido friends, I couldn’t be more thankful for a crazier group of aiki freaks than you. You’re the best, and it’s been wonderful growing with you on our journey through this great art. To all of my non-Aikido friends, well, you’re crazy too and I love ya. Here’s to a great Thanksgiving.
