This blog is a place for students of Berkshire Hills Aikido to post their thoughts.

I got sliding snowshoes for Jesus’ birthday. We have had
about 3 inches of snow since October. Today I was out on my skis on about a
half inch of granulated ice that was quite slippery. The sun was setting and a
3 quarter moon had already risen giving the world a soft glow. The air was cold
but I quickly shed my hood as I scattered around the yard mostly keeping my balance.
I have never taken lessons so my skiing is not too graceful yet. My Aikido
training helps me stay centered and keep my weight off my feet. When I let go
of positive mind….when I think about falling, sure enough there I go. Good that I know how to fall and good that I
prayed and the universe helped me get up. Good that I can laugh at myself and
be out in the woods on my new skis at 54 years young.
