Happiness is Just a Contusion

The older I get, the more I enjoy the things that leave marks.

Tae Kwon Do sparring, SCA heavy fighting, board and brick breaks, bo and quarterstaff work, and, of course, dive rolls.


Aren't I afraid of betting hurt?


Because I know I will get bumps and bruises and scrapes and cuts and splinters and all the rest.

Anyone can live a quiet life, I've just got things to do and executing a perfect dive roll brings a brightness to my day.

And executing a less than perfect dive roll, well, skin grows back.
