Yep, still redundant

Over the next month I am seeing a couple of different cardiologists to see if anything can be done for me. Most of the time I am able to walk. Exercise has been problematic of late though. Shortness of breath.

People tell me I can still teach and have something to contribute. I don't know anymore. But things have changed. I'm no longer asked to teach. Yeah it hurts.

I've come to grips with my mortality. Many days I'm just ready to go and not be sick anymore. But I'm still here. SO yeah, last yeah for WMA.

  1. No longer needed or useful; superfluous.
  2. (of words or data) Able to be omitted without loss of meaning or function.
superfluous - unnecessary - needless - excessive - spare

I'm redundant. There I've said it. Because of a number of factors, one being bad health, I have become redundant. I can't really open fence anymore and others have moved into the spots that I used to occupy as an instructor and someone to be looked to for information. I believe this will be my last year (possibly two years depending on translation time) in the wma community. I am finishing up edits on the new edition of Arte of Defence and have translations of two manuscripts that are new that only a handful of people have seen. Once these are done I'll be in the history books for WMA. At least I hope I will.
