Candace was my friend, Aikido training partner, and an incredible positive spirit. She died today, too young, too soon, of breast cancer.

This was from a few years ago, during her test for 1st Kyu in Aikido- she sits calm and centered, and tosses me in a circle around her. Candace didn’t let being legally blind stop her from earning black belts in two martial arts.

Her sincere joyous and positive outlook even in the face of many setbacks and losses continues to be a source of inspiration for me.

Tonight, I remember Candace.
