On September 29, 2009, I joined forces with His Dark Side to write for this blog. It’s now time to say goodbye and move on to something else.
I still have memories of when http://www.darkwingchun.com used to point to a comic-style website with an invitation to email the owner – responses on an ad-hoc basis. If my memory serves me correctly, it was a forum post with a link that probably brought me there. I really liked what the guy had to say. His opinions were sound and yet, unlike most, he wasn’t selling anything.
What grew out of that chance website-encounter will be greater than anyone could ever imagine. I’ve grown by leaps and bounds over the years and have developed a friendship closer than I ever thought possible.
I’ve always been terribly upset when visiting a blog and finding it defunct, but now I understand why it has to be done. Blogs are their own little entities in the stratosphere of the internet. Very much like a band that tours year after year, eventually looking across the studio, they say: I think we’re done here – some “We came. We saw. We conquered.” -type sh*t.
Perhaps this isn’t goodbye. Perhaps it will remain an open-ended project in some regards.
I will start a new project that will continue on the lines of ‘Dark’ Wing Chun – just more personal than what I’ve been building here. Perhaps I’ll come back to this post and leave a cookie crumb when it has started for those interested.
So. Without further ado:
May you find your own path.
