liesl’s high school education continues to be oddly wonderful. today, she starts, for four consecutive monday afternoons, learning kendo from the top kendo (artist? practitioner? performer?) in san diego. they say it’s all about respect and harmony and self-control and all kinds of other really good stuff. but, still, it’s samurai sword fighting!
btw, her class had an overnight metalsmithing field trip this past week. she came home with a couple minor burns, but learned how to forge iron.
