The Mercies have helped me clear my lungs out enough to do some work- Hopefully soon I can begin to entertain guests again! Dergus has been a huge help getting things into the shop, I'll have to remember to buy him some extra rounds next time we breeze into Traders.

Sometimes when we sleep, we dream. And sometimes we even remember these dreams. Sometimes they feel so real. You wake, and you're certain you can still smell the muddy field that you stood upon, and yet it is fading. You try to hold onto the scent, but it's no longer in your nose. The colors in your mind are fading, and even if you close your eyes tightly, you cannot grab onto the dream. It lingers just out of reach, and you try to piece together all the parts of it, try to remember the vividness of it all.

You think, this would make a great story, and you start writing it down. And what you recall, it's got its own logic, its own coherence. It's not necessarily coherent as a story. And perhaps no one else might enjoy the tale, but it is meaningful to you.

So you keep it. Tuck it away to find again in some time when you've forgotten it entirely. And when you read it again, you puzzle at yourself. Could this really have been so beautiful at the time that I felt compelled to write it down?

But it was, and you keep doing it.

Spring has arrived in Arx and with it the promise of new life.

Gardens across the city are being to slowly wake as the icy white blankets of snow are drawn back to reveal rich dark earth and hints of lush greenery. The leaves on the trees are beginning to bud and blossoms are lifting their heads to shyly smile at the sky. The scent in the air is good and green and all seems well.

Even in the gloom that wrapped itself around the city today in the form of dark ominous skies that seem to have stolen the sun away cannot fully hide that promise of all that spring brings.

I am not sure why such weather brings to mind bad omens. I do not think disastrous or horrible happenings truly have a preference for weather. Nor do I think that a sunny day will ease the awful one might experience when thing go awry.

Perhaps it is just that such unpleasant weather echoes the climate in our own minds. I suppose it's just another reminder for all of us to embrace the good things of the day and to make hay while the sun shines.

Hello! No. Get me that other one. The one that the scary leathers lady! HELLO CLIVE!
Why? Stop running away. Yes. Write this down!
Look. Cane! Ha!

Right. First. Randoms - Flew again, yadda ya ya. Made a bit of a hole. I thinks we got things sorted out there.
Next. I found there's these stones they want to be next to each other, or can send each other flying away. I have an idea for them, but need to find someone that has the smarties to help sort out what they do. Only everyone keeps running away. Like you do!
You know you wouldn't need to sit down as much if you didn't keep running away. Fine. Yes. I'll untie you.

The pot landed inside my patrons house and they had seemed to like cleaning a lot. They would have made Zoya jealous with all the cleaning they were getting to do. I don't have anyway to control the direction that the pot goes, though I have sorted out that it goes in mostly a straight line, or an arc. a very high arc from my last set of calculations. Which is why its hard to track, though if I point it in a general direction before it takes off I can get a better idea of where its going to come back down. Maybe if I tie a thin rope to it?

Don't think I don't see you shaking your head at me. I know that I am way off from where this first started. Though just think! It could make all the difference. Yes, I am testing if I can get it to float. No. I won't say why.

There. All done. and you're untied. Say hi to the leathers lady eh?

Relationship Note on Vincenzo

I am almost unreasonably pleased at his return to the city! I've already secured his services for a rather large project, but more than that, I was able to renew an old friendship that was sorely missed.

Welcome back, Vincenzo Villente!

Winter storms give way to spring thaw, and the winds of war will blow anew.

Relationship Note on Evaristo

Master Evaristo was kind enough to fulfill a commission for me and it is absolutely some of the most stunning work that I've had the pleasure of seeing. I wish that I was keeping it.

Relationship Note on Zara

I spent a solid chunk of this morning in the Valardin Manor going over research documents with Princess Zara. I have to say that I don't know how Rupert does this for a living, it's very tedious.

I went camping in the forest for a few days, simply to clear my head. Sometimes things here feel so overwhelming. Like I can't breathe. Like Im caged. I don't know, I just know I had to get away for and now Im back. Feeling a lot more clear headed than I was. And that's never a bad thing! Now to make my visits!

I started writing my plans out. What I wanted to do for Stormheart. There's so much I want to do, to help with. My people deserve so much and my family and I worked awfully hard to get where we are, it's time to continue the hard work. Make our ancestors proud.

Relationship Note on Ian

I received a...particularly interesting wedding gift from Lord Ian, scholar. Several if you count box, after, cage, after rope. Im missing some items, I assure you. One even exploded confetti at me. In the end, which did take a while--as one bag smelled just as bad his scarf. You've never smelled his scarf? How fortunate for you! Anyway, the end of the gift!

The calling of the Sea: Salacious Adventures of a Kennex Man and Woman.

That was at the end. A story. Move over baker. There's a new story in the city!

Also, retaliation is going to be painful. Sorry Kennex.

Harlan and I spent an evening out at the Dancing Feather, a place I'd not been to previously. We met Raven, Blackheart of Pravus there, which was quite entertaining as she spins quite a good tale.

And we danced and danced, until I was dizzy from dancing.

While I do know that things are very serious and war is as ever on the horizon, sometimes it is needed to go do something that we love, to remind us what it is that we are fighting for.

Relationship Note on Gwenna

My cousin Gwenna is one of the most brilliant and patient people I know, which is a boon when working with someone as... restless as me. Most people wouldn't put up with it, but she does so with such a warmth and grace that makes my hasty thoughts and concerns feel heard and validated. Our methods may be opposite, but we have always wanted the same things: the safety and prosperity of our people, and me away from trying to figure out the numbers ledgers. I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue the adventures of our youth into the present, even if that must mean less tree climbing. Not none-- just less. You heard me.

Relationship Note on Darren

When we were kids growing up in Farhaven, I never fathomed that we'd ever be separated. (Except for that three minute head start he had, but whatever. The world is better off because I let him go first.) Darren had the brains and charm, I got the brawn and better hair-- yes, that's a fact, don't even bother fighting me on that one. We were going to have grand adventures until it was his time to rule, but that time arrived way too quickly. Darren was fully ready and capable to lead, but I just wasn't ready to lose our father as abruptly and painfully as we did. It's been so long since that happened, and I still don't know how to cope with it. What I -do- know is that he would be so proud of all the good that Darren has done, and the steadfast manner he has cared for his people while carrying the weight of so much. I consider it an excellent and productive day when I can make Darren laugh like our father.

We were a team then, and we're a team now. I missed you more than I can ever say. Thank you for bringing me home.

I went to Lady Thea and Lord Drake Wyvenheart's marriage party to clebrate their union. They made a radiant couple, and the knife-throwing contest was surprisingly fun, even if I will now require a slipper to replace the one that I damaged. I left with confetti in my hair and clay dust on my silks, but also with a smile on my face.

As much as I enjoy the winter, I love to see the spring. I have been so productive, making things for The Grotto, as well as finishing Lord Drake's wedding band... I can't wait for everyone to see what's in store for my shops in the future! I think that I may rebrand The Silver Lining, and focus on The Grotto a bit more.

The children and I got out into the garden today. They did not come with me to the back gardens where we have the finest, rarest blooms, but they enjoyed tromping around in the garden with the wooden ponies and swords that Princess Damiana gave them. They don't look as comical now using them which is a bit sad for me but it's still rather cute.
