I caught the sword.
My relief made me giddy.
Now I'm free to concentrate on a few other things, like a book launch party, wrapping up revisions on my other manuscript and clearing a path through the Back 40 so I can cross country ski this winter without getting snagged on branches and dead trees. My desk is buried in paperwork, the boys have play dates planned, there are dentist appointments and haircuts to orchestrate. I've also asked Mr. K, XMA Guru, to teach me the rest of the sword form because I'm feeling up to the challenge. Maybe the sword is my weapon.
I will post a video of the catch as soon as I can get my hands on one, pinky-promise.
Meanwhile, spill it, reader. What's making you giddy this morning?
