un control



This summer, presuming it doesn't land in my holding-yard of unfinished projects, I'm learning to shoot. It's been on the "at some point" list, and the opportunity has come up.

So that interested parties don't freak, it should be understood that I don't feel any particular personal lack of control about this. . . it's simply the matter of understanding violence, and understanding the tools of violence.

Which are implicitly not in control--implicitly deserving of caution, of understanding, of competence. That's the attempt. That's my attempt.
