Granmoun blan isit la. Ozetazini ak Kanada, pa janm mande yo nalang angle oswa franse. Pafwa an Frans, paske mwen gen yon aksan ibrid. Mwen toujou mande, si kirye, depi mwen se yon xenofil.
Old white man here. In the US and Canada, never get asked in English or French. Sometimes in France, because I have a hybrid accent. I always ask, if curious, since I’m a xenophile.

At the door of the dojo a fellow aikidoka, who bears the name lf an ancient Persian king, offered me New Year’s greetings. I replied:
- نوروز مبارک, adding, غم انگیز است, it’s sad.
– “Why?” he asked: .چرا؟
- به خاطر همه مرده های جوان, because of all the dead young.
– “It will take time, he said. Not as long, I hope, as aikido takes.
