    Rep thanks! I took a break from rowing this week...it seems that "filter" between your brain and your mouth (you know, the one that I always left at home when I worked MICU in the city) got washed down the drain at the beginning of the week and I haven't gotten out to get a new one. lol!

    Oh, joy. I think there are some that ought to take them more often, or better still, ought not practice at all. (Others are great and I hold in high regard.)
    It is nice to hear from you again! =^_^=

    Thanks. I would really appreciate any criticism you'd care to give. It's the only way I'd improve my writing, and I'd love to hear what you think.

    It's been hot here. I could use some rain. I haven't been to the beach all that much either, but overall, it's been fun.

    I posted earlier, but it borked. So I am, uh, posting again.
    I know what you mean about the not-your-crowd... only I didn't really think that... grown-ups... had to deal with that. Hmmm...
    I hope it turns out better then you figure. =^_^=

Rebuilding...

by dharmaqueen on 04-10-2013 at 09:44 PM
I can safely say I am out of my Reno funk. I am acquiring new skills and putting them to use more often and not always falling back to my panic responses. I think I am fencing calmer and I hope to bring that to every tournament. I really wish there was a chill pill that could razor focus the adrenaline for when I need it and not have that sloppy fear fencing get me messed up in the pools...especially with people I am expected to defeat.

I like the idea of having a variety of options

Reno

by dharmaqueen on 03-20-2013 at 07:40 PM
Was humbled by the experience and realize I need to step up my game. I also need to stop fencing underestimating myself and do the actions I have been taught..but clearly are not confident in. I fence better when I have a goal in mind and have to learn not to space out on the strip.

Happily I was doing well with my physical self and can safely say that I could have fenced many more DEs then I was given the opportunity to.

I got a chance to bond with and watch some amazing

Happy Place

by dharmaqueen on 03-09-2013 at 09:11 PM
I am really quite pleased with the growth of my current clubs epee program. Today's class had 10 people even with two regulars out for the day. It was just great to share the weapon with others either culled from their foil or saber classes or just new to the sport. It was also nice to have some women for a change.

I had to work hard to stay calm and be patient. It is hard to keep that raging adrenaline at bay to do your bidding when you want it. I am much more successful when calm

They like me!!

You would think that with this heading that I had no friends. Indeed I have plenty but rare female friends...but thanks to fencing I have a whole cadre of vet women fencers of all ages and weapons whom I cherish.

The icing on this cake was being asked to join a Vet team for Summer Nationals. Unlike my prom where the guy actually said to me that since 2 other girls said no to him, would I go with him. I said "yes" of course but hated that I was a third choice for anyone!! So when this

Plan of Attack/Defense

by dharmaqueen on 02-07-2013 at 10:58 PM
I am newly invigorated for the weeks ahead. I had an amazing day of open bouting where I actually had a chance to practice tasks from a prior lesson and score touches with a new move. Granted, not all the time but that is what practice is for.
Then later that same day at lesson, learned an even cooler new move to make me unstoppable!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA (evil scientist laugh)...should I perfect it of course (the move, not the laugh). But somehow, actually learning to do this and knowing I am
