Somebody has a lot of free time.

I have this tight pain in my chest. It's an energy blockage: a bunch of fear and anxiety and anger all compressed and hardened into a little ball. I don't know what it's about, if anything; I do feel like I'm up against something in my head, and I'm remembering that the solution is something beyond conflict...going around, blending, connecting. O-Sensei said:

There are no contests in the Art of Peace. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing. Defeat means to defeat the mind of contention that we harbor within.
So a head-to-head fight isn't the answer. Understanding and letting go.

I could ramble about work and stuff, but that's not really why I write, now, is it?

I will say that I finished reading Watchmen today, a brilliant, brilliant graphic novel by British comic writer Alan Moore. It's an incredible story, and I highly recommend it to anyone.
