Hey Matt--

How is the jiu jitsu going? I have been away from it now for over a year, and really want to get back to it, but hate the idea of having my ass kicked for weeks just to get back in the routine. Any inspirational thoughts on this one?

Hey Matt,

Thanks for the friend request.

I'd like to talk more as well.  What your status now and did all that effect you later or influence your direction?

I noticed you've read healing the Masculine Soul. Did you like it or did it help?
