    Default Gonna Do It!

    But, probably not what you think. haha.


    If all goes according to plan, I will be opening my own kung fu school the first of the year. The two guys I train with are going into partnership with me as I will still have my day job and will have the school open in the afternoons through early evening hours. Because we live in a small town, and the interest in kung fu alone may not be enough to make it viable, we will offer classes in art and music as well a couple of days per week. Anyway, this is the dream, and I'm going for it.

    @Ene hmm, it sounds like you're not only a dreamer, but also an achiever.

    Personally, I tend to be much more of the former than the latter.

    Bruce Lee, the martial arts mastermind himself actually has a good quote on this subject:
    "Faith makes it possible to achieve that which man's mind can conceive and believe."

    Heck yeah, @Ene!

    Sounds like a great dream and I'm so happy I hear you're pursuing it! Congrats on owning your life, woman. Best of luck!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Thanks @RaptorWizard for the encouragement and for the quote. You know, Bruce Lee was a person after my own heart so to speak.

    It sounds like you're not only a dreamer, but also an achiever.
    I suppose that somewhere inside me is the notion that the purpose of having dreams is to either share them with someone else who will bring them to pass or to put legs on them and bring them to pass ourselves. I really like the notion of bringing about a positive change in the world, even if it's only my little place in the world.

    @nicolita thank you! Also, thanks @JAVO, my most favorite polar bear ever and @Jaguar.

    That's a hard step to make.

    Admiration is what I have for you taking it. I always wondered if I should take up a form of martial arts for fitness and calm, well if I ever find myself in your small town I'll definitely pop in.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
