Doesn’t everyone wish he could fence?.....It is violence refined into beauty, it has associations with love, honor and suicidal pride. We think of great fencers-unlike great footballers or junk-bond salesman-as superior beings: air and fire, rather than earth and water. We think of Cyrano, Zorro and the Three Musketeers.

Today I gained another coach. In a way she has coached me before, I was just slow and did not put it together.
This time I will attempt to follow her advice.

Thanks Coach. I mean that sincerely. I will try to follow your instructions.
