I am also sorry for any hurt feelings I may have caused you. That was never my intent. I was very intrigued with your mental imagery and I wanted to it explore it further. Perhaps I should have done this privately but I felt the discussion of mushin, zanshin, etc. was interesting to many others. I admire you for your tenacity, loyalty and dedication to Uechi. One day I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you in person, so we can "beat the crap out of each other" and share a beer :-) How does that sound?
Why do you feel the need to "bow out of the forums". I, for one, appreciate your knowledge and experience. Please reconsider.
All the best,
