Journal of Khalis Imieran entry 30

I have now spent several weeks recovering since suffering the deep wound in the campaign with those of Bar En Vanimar in the Misty Mountains. Imladris now has returned to its usual routine the inhabitants feeling all the more secure now both companies are back in the vale.

I have spent 2 hours or more each day working through the sword and shield patterns taught to me long ago by my first weapons master. My strength returns but there is only one true test and that is the test of the dance in battle against multiple adversaries. I intend to speak with Hiril Elisbeth to seek permission to do so.

In the moments of true focus when performing the patterns of the dance I have felt as though I am not alone even though there is just myself, the circle and the adversaries conjured in my minds eye. A feeling I cannot put into words very well, but something which has been there for as long as I remember which until now I did not comprehend.
