Progress Towards Keiko Hajime

Shoumen is built! Now I need to do some sanding and slap some stain on there and/or varnish.

Calligraphy... needs practice. I haven't picked up a brush since 1996. "Rusty" is an understatement, but it's coming back slowly.

Mats are a work in progress. I found a local set online to purchase and am waiting to hear from the seller. Otherwise there is a set we can borrow. Either way, we should have something to roll around on for Keiko Hajime on Friday.

I paid us up for November and picked up the key to the space last night. Unfortunately I didn't snap any pics, but I'll get some Thursday for sure when we do a test run with whatever mats we end up acquiring.

Keiko is fast approaching; see you on the mat very soon!
