A little update

I haven't posted much lately. I feel an explanation is in order.
Couple reasons. One, I suck at this. Never been able to keep a diary, never kept an updated website. I'm learning. It's a process.
Two... life is a bit nuts right now. For those who don't know, I work in a public library. Our director has resigned, and it has been a very stressful time. She will not be replaced until September, so a staff already shorthanded due to budget cuts is having to pick up slack.

Still playing SCA. Having a good time, getting ready for Pennsic. I have pre-registered and ordered our new tent. Money is VERY short right now, so I will not be making many events between now and then. I was hoping to do Panteria or Roses, but that is out. We will be hitting Coldwood and War Camp. That's it. Such is life. I look forward to seeing those of you that I can at those events.

I am actually feeling pretty good about my fighting right now. Been working with one of my House with axe, and it's actually helping some things click for me, as I break them down for me. Showing him how the angles and mechanics is showing me how they work again, and I'm finding new angles and techniques. Watching more videos, tossing in some Jeu de la Hache, and feeling the pieces slide into place. It's odd, but I feel like my fighting is right at the edge of something right now. Hopefully it's not the edge of a plateau. :)
