I've recieved a lot of emails from everyone lately. Very nice, very caring emails. I have not responded to them all but I have read many.
Some really stand out. Trey Woodford http://www.shoushuonline.com/users/tiger-dragon sent me an amazing email that was extremely insightful and helpful. David Spangler http://www.shoushuonline.com/users/gm-dave-spangler-ku-dan sent an email that made me realize that the things that Shifu Liz and I have been through have been played out by many others.
I appreciate all of you.
Today has been a tough day for me. But it is in these tough days that we grow.
I'm in the middle of a partnership breakup. This is not the first time. I've had partners go South on me before. Something just happens to people when businesses start making good money. I think they call it greed.
It's a tough experience. Years of work down the drain. Huge potential lost.
But that business is unrelated to this.
This site is beginning to take on a life of it's own. It's going places I never expected. A group of people I never even knew existed is forming.
I have to believe that this thing I am going through is just a redirection for me. Someone up there has knocked me back on course. That business was not my love. This is.
So despite the hardship I am thankful for it. This site I have treated like a hobby. But it is not a hobby. It is my passion.
Not only is it my passion but through it I have found that there are many people out there that think like me. That have seen and recognized what has happened in the martial world and like me they are sad for it.
And with knowing that these people exist I am hopeful. I am hopeful that we can bring something back to the world. Something precious.
I just got back from the park. I went through all my beast forms. I was so angry on my way there. I felt so good on my way back. Grateful that I have Shou' Shu'. Grateful that you are all on this Journey with me.
I think that this is the start of a new chapter. I'm not sure what that chapter will bring. But I know it will bring great things.
Thanks for coming along with me.
