After careful consideration, I have decided to take the class into hiatus for the month of June. It will give us all a chance to recharge our batteries, and regain some perspective.
I want to say that I have personally found great things in this art. It has been a source of strength in times of weakness, peace in times of turmoil, and provided me with friendship, truth, and perspective. I love this art.
When we reconvene in July, it will be without Sensei Jon Michael Boudreau. Jon will be leaving for his stint in the United States Navy. Personally, I feel like I am saying good bye to a trusted friend and confidant. I will miss him terribly. I hope he likes really tight enclosed places.
