Fffffencing!

We did OK into today’s match. There weren’t any obvious blowouts, 15-0 or 15-1 all through the day. WFC and RS fencers were pretty evenly distributed through the ranks. We took 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, and 20 out of 20. Not impossibly bad, actually. And even better than I thought — though It rankles me a little to realize that I myself only trained one of the two tied for #3, and the 9th, of the top ten. The others learned to fence elsewhere.

Oh, well. Room for improvement.

In other news, I’ve now seen the same owl three nights running. Friday he was sitting in the snow by the infirmary. Saturday night, as I was coming home from dinner, he was sitting in the tree by the fencing salle. Tonight, he was sitting on the rail of the stairway up to my front door from the back driveway. It’s a sign or symbol of something, but I’m not sure what, yet.

    How lovely!!! Totemically,Owl speaks of wisdom, heightened perception, discernment, female magick, messages to and from the dead. Individuals with this totem are private complex people and don’t like others to know what they are really thinking. This can sometimes lead to misunderstandings especially in the area of personal relationships. An owl’s hearing and sight are incredibly acute. Pay attention to your dreams  and feelings. Question your fears and act on your intuition. Focus on our intentions and move swiftly toward your goals and objectives. Be silent and conserve your energy until you are ready to act with undivided attention. If you are experiencing problems and uncertainty, take some time out to confront your fears and confusion.

    Further information would depend on the kind of owl that has flown into your life.
