Even the best of memories becomes obscured and fragmented.
The photo was of me breaking roofing tiles with my hand (a knifehand strike).
When I was grading to black belt, at the age of 60.
(Yes, that's old, 18 years ago, and the memories become fuzzy.)
It feels like a bit of a shame, having lived a joyful and eventful life, that I can remember so little of it.
I won't call it a waste because it was/is a great joy.
But the memories are drifting away.

Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand
