I’ve entered a period of hibernation (of some sorts).

I stared sadly at my shinai bag and wiped off a speck of dust from the handle. I feel rusty. If it is not because of the persistent pain in my left shoulder that has been haunting me for the past 2 months, I would have picked up the shinai and train my suburi rigorously. I want my injury to heal completely before I start any rigorous training. I suspect the pain could be due to a severe strain (from an archery practice); possibly a muscle tear. I remembered I did accidentally knocked on a car door and I have been in pain since. Frankly, I do not know what was the real cause behind the dull pain on my left shoulder for the past two months!

I went to see one traditional physician and she mentioned something about ‘dislocated’ (I couldn’t quite catch the chinese words she used), but she didn’t rectify that problem. Instead, she was busy examining every inch of my body to search for clues to other possible illnesses I might have (which have nothing to do with the painful shoulder) and suggested some kind of treatment (which requires more $$$ obviously). I’m still in the quest for finding a good chiropractor within the vicinity of my city. If my problem persists and I still could not find a good treatment, then I guess I’ll have to fly elsewhere to search for the remedy.

Seems like I won’t be able to bring out the Rurouni Kenshin in me anytime soon. Oh well, I still can fill up my time by reading books, paint, sew garments and meditate.

I got that key chain from a tiny souvenir shop in Singapore

I purchased that key chain from a small souvenir shop in Singapore. The shop was selling 3 key chains for S$10. The other two designs I selected were an Unicorn and an elephant. I gave the elephant key chain to my spouse. The unicorn hangs majestically beside my wardrobe mirror. Meanwhile, I am sure you know what dragon fly symbolizes in Japan :) 

Truthfully, I miss wielding my shinai.

Am I baring my soul?

Am I baring my soul?

Dear shoulder, please get well soon, so I could get back to the dojo and practice with my fellow Kendoka. I miss the training. I miss my friends too.

The sword is the soul of its wielder?

They are not toys. I treat them as if they are the real thing
