I’ve decided to update my Kiai illustration. My social interaction is seriously affected by wearing a mask. I tend to be sarcastic and I joke a lot, but as long as you can see my smile, you know that I’m kidding. But now I need to be extra cautious with every word that comes out of my mouth… My smile, my necessary social lubricant is gone, hidden by a mask. I can’t go back on the mat yet but some in our dojo are back training with masks… I’m wondering what impact it might have on the way we interact and practice together.
