And on a happier note . . .
The countdown begins!
Just four more days until Jerusalem's newly-improved fencing club opens for the new school year.
Unlike last year, you no longer need to bring your own equipment. Beginners are very much welcome. Of course, I am not a beginner (though I have never fenced epee; in New York I fenced foil, but here I'll have to switch to epee since that's all they do). However, it means I can bring friends along some time if they (you?) want to try it. I'm big into "fencing kiruv." It's great exercise, lots of fun, and the people tend to be good sports.
I'm so excited! I haven't fenced for almost 2 years and can't wait to go back. En guarde!
