      Takanofuji dono,
      I have a tendancy to work my yunde too tightly, griping the yumi
      instead of balancing it, thus I tend to throw ya to the right. I still
      have to work with relaxing the left hand, although if I could stop
      worring it...it might relax on its own... I too, have too many corners.
      People now-a-days buy video cards for their computers that render
      x-million triangles per second so their video games function with the
      smoothest graphics...then they need to buy more video memory so they
      can render more triangles...perhaps triangles are not the way to go, eh?
      Funny how life imitates art imitates life...
      Shi wa bla bla...
      (time to go shooting...the rain clouds are waiting for me...I dare not
      make them wait too long...)
