I just thought that this was a pretty cool pic. So for your enjoyment, here it is. I give you The Maestro = Urban, and GMstr. Frank Ruiz. Circa 1988 in Florida, at The Daniel San DoJo of Sensei, Danny Lemus. May they both rest in peace. Thanks to Hanshi Roldan, and Sensei Lemus for the pic.

Relationships, affiliationships, belongings, or should I say supposed belongings.
Freedom comes from detachment from the bondage of the self created ties, chains, and prison cells that we bring upon our own co dependant selves.
Flogging the dead horse, so to speak, is a definite form of self imprisonment.
Someone that we all knew, was once told that he = a man of his persuasion, could never achieve an original thought.
To this, I say that from Today = Now, the original thinking, based on lessons learned from the past, are far more important, and productive, than living in, basking in, and shunting with, that which was.
Daddy's shoes are worn and tattered. Like baby shoes, they should be bronzed, and not stepped into.
It is one thing, to walk in the footsteps of the father, and another, to blindly walk into a mine field. Read into that one, like a zen koan .....................................
The definition of insanity, is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a diffent result.
Like David Miller says: That's my opinion, and I could be wrong..........................
