Going For Greatness!
This is just my little contribution to clogging up the space on the Internet! Hey, it's free space so why not take it while ya can?! I have several things of which I am proud to be affiliated. First and foremost would be theWindstar Foundation. In 1976, John Denver and Master Aikidoist, Thomas Crum founded the Windstar Foundation in Snowmass, Colorado. Windstar is a not-for-profit 501-c-3 environmental education organization which promotes a holistic approach to addressing environmental concerns. Windstar is an example that shows that all people are part of, and responsible for, the quality of life; and that which affects any one of us, thus affects all of us.
In the above paragraph I mentioned, master Aikidoist, Thomas Crum. He is my mentor and one of the brave who withstood my childhood years at Windstar! I started studying Aikido with Tom when I was in my early teens. He offered summer workshops at The Windstar Foundation called AIKI WEEKS. Man, OH man! The experiences I had during those spectacular weeks are among the fondest and most vivid memories of my childhood years.
Though I have left the "nest" I continue to use the techniques that I was taught and have found a dojo where I can practice Aikido.
Growing up atWindstar, I had the most incredible opportunities to spend time with it's other co-founder, John Denver.
A great place to go to learn about John Denver and the way that we are keeping his energy alive is by checking out
When it comes to entertainment, I tend to like the foreign actors and a lot of the time that means the foreign movies as well. My favourites are Christopher Lambert, Liam Neeson, and Brendan Gleeson. Christopher Lambert you may know as Connor MacLeod from the film, HIGHLANDER. Liam Neeson portrayed, Qui-Gon Jin in the recent film, Star Wars Episode I. Brendan Gleeson you have all seen in the film, Braveheart. Brendan has done a few other films that you may or may not regognise such as:
- Braveheart he played Hamish
- The General he played Martin Cahill
- Michael Collins he played Liam Tobin
- Far and Away he played the Social Club Policeman

This "Place" is called the SCA or the Society for Creative Anachronism Check out their site and let me know what ya think. It's really a great organisation and the people are AWESOME!
