I finished the items for Princess Alarissa's upcoming auction. I have been learning a new art the last few months and the culmination are these stained glass windows. Packing them to move them over to her was quite the undertaking, but they stayed whole, much to my relief.

Elora has come back home, after some weeks in Hawkhold. Though the house is never empty, with two boys, three dogs and now also a calf (thank you Lord Michael Bisland for the fluffy little bull named Buckley, he is sometimes walking right into our cottage), it is never quite the same without her. Or her bird, or her dog.

We might want to look into a larger cottage soon, or expand the one we have. It's getting crowded.

Relationship Note on Shae

I owe you for saving my life.
That dog is soon to be spoiled rotten, as if I needed new excuses to spoil dogs.

We find ourselves a pile in red,
Crumbled all around
Mark that every piece is cracked,
And cast careless to the ground.
I wonder what we find this day?
What was left, what was its stead?
Now humped up in this mound.
What form was torn, twisted, wracked?
Till it tumbled, battered, cast away.

Relationship Note on Clover

Her absence has stretched too long to be anything other than worrisome given her propensity for clumsiness. With all the projects I have planned for Farshaw, I am in want of the wise council of my wife. I know I get too focused on the mercantile aspect and need reining in, she does it best. Farshaw needs her back at my side.

I also miss her continual smiles. In days of sinister tales and hard work, her attitude is sorely needed. I find myself too gloomy at times of late.

If she doesn't sent notice or return in a few weeks, it'll be time to send a party to search for her.

Also, I love her. Ivy needs her mother, if nothing else, lest she turn out into a trade-centric head like me.

I should remain in the sea.

Things on land are complicated.

Relationship Note on Ashur

Though tears come in many forms and for many reasons, you never cease to amuse me.

Gods know I've needed to laugh, and it's been some time since I've laughed as much as I do with you, Lord Ashur Sanna.

May you be blessed, in due time, with children who bring you laughter, joy and love.

If anyone does, you deserve it.

An afterthought: Though I can't be sure, I couldn't help but wonder if the wolf spider was taking vengeance for the tease. Either that, or you disturbed his home. You may wish to be more careful of spider's webs.

I'll have to ask for updated maps. Last I heard of Stormheart, it stood in a valley among mountain peaks. Now it has a shipyard.

The wonders of the continent.

I rather dislike having quite so much time to spend with my own thoughts.

Not to say that this means I dislike thinking, but perhaps it's better said that I dislike standing still for too long. I can feel myself stagnating, and that feeling can be hard to banish. I've taken to dispelling that feeling by frequenting the Training Center as often as the bars - even if I'm not out making a name for myself, I can at least work at improving myself, or finding those who are fighting the same fight that I am - one against stillness, and inaction.

I get to witness a fine variety of combat forms, to test myself in ways that I'm not always able to out in the streets, and I like to think that I come away better for it.

Where else can one watch a barmaid square off against a champion duelist?

...Speaking of barmaids, some enterprising person should offer to sell spirits in the Training Center. They'd make good coin.

Relationship Note on Ras

I don't trust him. This fellow is odd and has odd ideas. He opens his mouth and speaks dangerous things. I have my eye upon him.

The best part of loosing a fight is learning. You learn a bit about your opponent. You learn a bit about yourself. You learn that you need to get better. I am thankful to have good friends that are on my side. I am thankful for the training to get better. I still feel that I have much to learn, but I will get there.

Relationship Note on Leola

I'm so glad I was able to have a chance to catch up with Dame Leola and speak with her. It had been far to long since I had done so. As always, the conversation was full of things to share with one another. And I deeply appreciate her helping me with furthering my knowledge of farming and the like.

I'm starting to wonder if some people are bad luck, or maybe certain animals. Perhaps a combination of them together in the same place?

Whether that holds any weight or not, it seems there are some pirates that need to hunt down, and the docks at Port Authierre will need to be rebuilt some. I don't think they are completely destroyed, thankfully.

Also, Sheila is a truly nice cow.

Relationship Note on Elgana

As usual, my cousin Princess Elgana threw the most wonderful dinner event! The food, drinks, and decor were beyond elegant, and perfectly Northlands. The company? I could go on for paragraphs about the wonderful conversations. Between catching up with old friends and making new acquaintances, the seeds of various endeavors were planted and discussed, which I am greatly looking forward to. There were those who were missing, due to duties or other necessary commitments, and all were quite missed. Thankfully, the success of this dinner surely means there will be more to come.

I have a nice list of possible projects to begin for Brighthold, as well as projects of others to help with too. Staying busy is good, I enjoy having work to do, and knowing I am helping others in achieving the goals they wish to put into action.

It was wonderful getting to meet Duchess Lisebet Ashford, and even more so when she asked if I would like to have her as my patron. I'm deeply honored by her offer, and of course accepted it. I hope that the two of us may grow a supportive relationship, that may bloom into a friendship. I also had the pleasure of meeting her brother Ciaran, he seemed a nice gentlemen. Well educated, and very knowledgeable on some of the various Countries that surround us. I hope that perhaps I may have a chance to learn more about them from him, when he has the time. And I was most delighted to have gotten to see Lady Sunaia, it has been some time since we last saw one another. She is just as beautiful and delightful as I remember her.

Small kitten clapping paws in the garden
It seeks the fluttering cloud of colors
This is how dreamers pursue their fantasy
