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.

I screwed up my elbow on my weapon arm again. I need to bite the bullet and and go to the doctor.
I am not sure if I will be able to compete on Sunday. I worry about things like this taking me out of fencing. I want to fence so very much.
