Peace, Quiet, and February University

I am currently lying on our oh, so comfy couch. ballistabob has gone to bed, and El Brato has left to visit his brother. The cat has been fed, and I have the house all to myself.

Sometimes, I just like to listen to the silence and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes after a hectic day.

I have almost finished brushing up the handout for my class on "Zen, Fitness, and the Art of Defence," for this Saturday's University. I must say, there was a moment in which I had my doubts about signing up to teach it since I wasn't sure that there would be enough interest on it. True, I had taught this class once upon a time, a long time ago, and to this day people still approach me and tell me that they enjoyed it very much. However, since the description of this class and Domynik's "The Rapier Athlete" sound very similar, I was wondering if attendance for both classes would suffer.

It appears that my fears were unfounded, as both classes now have a good number of pre-registered people. And since both classes are intended to be treated as Part I and Part II of a series, going from the general to the particular, this means that we have a chance of having a very successful mini-track.

Plus the fact that people are interested in hearing what I have to say warms the cockles of my heart. What else can I say?

By the way, the handout will be posted to my website over the weekend. And if you are planning on attending my class, I would recommend that you also sign up for Dom's. It will be a lot of fun.

PS. I am also teaching a class on how to run a rapier authorization. Come as you are!

Yay handouts! The People Who Live Far Away (hmm... TPWLFA, sounds like some acronyms at work) are very very grateful for you website with handouts.

Speaking of handouts on your website, I found a picture of the shirt that Grace Gamble's pattern is based off of in the V&A. Is very cool.... :) And would be even cooler if I could manage period width linen for shirts.
