What’s interesting, is that when searching for the phrase datsusara or datsu-sara in America, the only thing that comes up are oodles of references to an MMA-related organization. I actually love MMA, UFC, World Cagefighting, etc., but this is a pretty extreme way to escape the drudgery of the daily commute and office (can anyone say “fight club”?). I did not long ago try my hand at Taekwondo, but prefer to actually exercise at my own speed, focused on running and sometime in the future, more swimming and biking – yes, renewing the triathlon experiences I’ve had in the past. There is a focus, right now, building for entering a road race next Summer – great motivation for winter-time exercise!
Perhaps this blog can be the datsusara in America, datsusara in the US and of course datsusara in DC escape the salaryman forum that’s missing.
Separately, my wife announced last week that we haven’t had sex for over a year now…in retrospect, it’s unsurprising, given the stress of the day and night jobs, growing kids staying up later, no sleep and of course the daily/weekly irritations associated with a crappy job downtown…but that has to change.
