    .... wait! He learned sharpening from Japanese craftsmen, that's very true. But where's the recognition for my translation?

    Through listening to craftsmen and Jon, I have a good sense of what I'm supposed to do, and now I really need to do it and get muscle memory as well. Part of the reason why I think it might be challenging is that I "know" what I'm supposed to do, but it doesn't mean I can physically recreate that "right" image for sharpening.

    I couldn't make time today, so my sharpening will probably take a place on Friday...


    nervous.

    I must admit, the one moment I felt fear at WCG was when Jon announced that we should all give Sara sharpening advice.

    Oh, I missed that! Good thing too because that question to me would have probably been met with silence since you were there - I would have just deferred to you.

    Haha. Yeah, I didn't want any part of that one. Jon can take his own lumps, thank you very much.

    ... it's happening today, I think. My nails are relatively short and I don't have ridiculous sized rings on me today. Off to a good start.

    Wish me luck
