    Hi all, I promised Debi I would submit a piece after the show. Turns out my grandmother is very ill (with staph, no less) at 95 years old. She and I spent a few years together when I was very little and we’ve always been real close. Point is, between driving to Sacramento, work & school I haven’t taken the time to write a good piece. What I’d like to do, and what feels most real is to share with you a letter I wrote to my six year old daughter on the plane home.

    “November 7, 2004

    Dear Dia,

    We are on our way home from a spectacular night of fights. The girls were awesome. I was supposed to fight the #1 ranked fighter in the world but I got sick. Luckily, I was able to be the corner-woman for my replacement. Roxanne stunned everybody. She was a great listener and she never quit trying. By the end of the third round most of the crowd’s hollaring ‘go Jen, show her who’s boss’ turned in to quiet amazement. She suprised everyone. Maybe even herself.
    I know you’ll grow up to be strong in so many ways.
    Never quit dreaming.
    Be cautious but NOT afraid.
    Never give up.
    And you really can do anything you want to do.
    Anyway, I can’t wait to come home and give you a great big hug.
    I love you!
    Love Always,
    MOM”

    So, cheesy, I know – but it’s from my heart. I was inspired.
    I’m proud to be in a circle of such fiercly passionate women.

    More on the fights later when I’m not thinkin’ about my granny.

    Love to all, the big softy,

    Heather

    Things like that are very nice to read.

    It was really good of you to offer to corner Roxy.

    She asked and I felt very honored.
    Hey, you never answered my PM. I’m from AZ. What are you doing in Tucson? Any chance in HELL you know a guy named Steve Purkiss?

    Hey, it’s worth a shot for an old friend…

    Aren’t you home with your daughter? Why did you write her a letter?

    I didn’t respond to your PM??
    I’m sorry. I thought I did.

    I don’t know Steve Purkiss. The only person I’ve trained with in Tucson is Daton Larsh, who teaches Muay Thai and no-gi grappling (he’s a purple belt BJJ).

    It’s been a while since I trained there, but I’m looking to head back there soon. I’m craving some training.

    I’ve been in Tucson for almost 2 years now. I was planning on moving to Cali in 2005, but I have a new girlfriend, and that changes many things 😉
    So it looks like I’ll be in Tucson for a while longer than anticipated.
