Recent events have prevented me from writing in this journal, but I’m happy to finally return.
About a month ago, I decided to adopt a cat. I drove 90 miles across the unforgiving winter landscape of southcentral Alaska to bring home the being I have named Ponnuki, who has brought to my life all the livingness of Go.
Ponnuki is energetic, powerful, and sharp: a vital companion, all in a lethally efficient and aesthetically pleasing shape.
To honor my cat, I thought I’d consider on the role of ponnuki in a recent lesson with Lukas, commented below by me with some of Lukas’ suggestions and observations. I played white, and lost by resignation.
Some exciting interviews are coming up soon. Stay tuned.
