Here it goes. And so far it doesn’t seem quite real. Over the last two years, even longer really, it’s been quite a process in order to train here at the YMAA (Yang’s Martial Arts Association) Retreat Center for the 5 year program; which as you’ll have it begins now! So even though, for the most part, all of us have arrived, Dr. Yang, the senior students, and the junior students (including myself) there is something not quite apparent. I am in a place I will possibly call home for the next 5 years, but it hasn’t sunk into my bones yet.

After training here for the month of March earlier this year, there is somewhat nostalgic feeling of familiarity coming back to the center. An experience like the one I had tends to get somewhat burnt into your memory. In March, it was nearing the end of the rainy season, and everything was shades of brown, tan and shadowy grays. But here in the last days of August, fall hasn’t quite struck the way it does in Colorado. The plants are still lush and bright green. Our organic gardens are producing some fantastic stock including tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce, kale, and a great deal more. That cold morning bite, which says you need to put on a sweat shirt, and reminds you that winter isn’t far off hasn’t arrived. It sounds like that will be around mid to late October.

I will be regularly posting various tid-bits about what it is that we’re up to. Right now, I am keeping the blog basic in manners of design and content; that is anyway, until I discover what this should really be about.

This first blog is dedicated to all those who have gotten me here. Thank you for all of your effort, patience, and support. You made it easy for me, you gave me the structure, and all I had to do was say “yes, I will do that.”  Thank you.
