Arx Hereticus

Welcome to the ramblings of a merry heretic, an ex-pat (Tex-pat?) American living in Maryland after having spent six years in Germany. Arx Hereticus is part travelogue, part cooking, part budo, part socio-political commentary and mostly just me BSing.

Miscellania ... Home-making

Hedgewitch has seen a sudden upswing in interest in her practice since the Frederick News-Post article. She's almost-famous again!

I've made connections with a rheumatologist and GP, getting set up for a 50K check-up (over-50 physical).

Household is mostly unpacked and we've held a yardsale to divest ourselves of lots of junk.
Getting ramped up to go to Detroit to visit friends and review the Shinto Hatakage Ryu iai kata; and in mid-September, we'll start an 8-week course in Shinto Muso Ryu jodo.

Still no firm plans or possibilities for local dojo space, but I'm pretty happy studying something else for a while, despite HW's gentle pushes to nudge me into starting my own dojo again.

Work's a bit quieter (for now), and I'm still trying to decide if I like it here or not ...
