I have always liked this quote from Lazarus Long. In fact ( though not on purpose/ or knowingly ) I have to some degree based my life on this.
Last night at foil, I found that I might be better off as an insect and just stay with epee.
I lead with my gut. I don't even extend....the whole thing does not work correctly in my mind.
I use to beat myself up over the fact that I could not fence this weapon. Now a days, it make me curious as to why.
I am going to dabble in it for a while.
