Got out of the city for a bit. Away from the snow. With my closest friends. Came home with an octopus. Yes. I caught that. I dove for that.

Then I came home to news of---well lets just say my house will be busy for a bit.

With the good news pouring in of the whirlpool's abrupt departure and the mix of news from the Oathlands, I am called to Artshall to do what I was entrusted to. I love my work for the most part, I enjoy it and it gives me a sense of satisfaction but now I have a sense of dread, hoping I will succeed in finding the needed balance.

Went on a little vacation from the snow. The sisters found their octopus, and I met a strong warrior that snatched their own octopus. Amusing that they only see me drinking, versus catching the stonefish.

Ohmygosh! The whirlpool is gone! How?! Someone please tell me how! In the meantime, adventures to be planned!

I keep imagining Lord Michael Bisland riding a bull, and the mental image just seems so very right, somehow.

I spent a fascinating evening with my nose in a book tonight. Not as fascinating as it was however to be granted the opportunity to speak properly with Lord Martino Malvici. He was able to help me with some research that I'm doing on my family; it's a huge responsibility being entrusted with keeping accurate records of our history, though I'm happy that that task has fallen to me. I'm never happier than when surrounded with books.

He indicated that he'll be happy to help me further should I have further questions, and for that I'm relieved.

The whirlpool is gone. Thank Mangatta! And you know, whomever else maybe had a hand. I don't know....Now if only winter would hurry on out, so I can take out the ship.

These mornings,
the sun fights the wind to rise
its light catching the frost
swept from naked branches
and painting dawn over the snow.
At the window, I hold my breath
but not my heart.

Sometimes in life, if people do things for you; a thank you is appreciated.

Once again my cousin has brought a project to fruition to the great benefit of Artshall in the form of the Dire Bee Lounge. I haven't been able to stop in yet but I hope to remedy that soon. I heard they have ham.

Well it's back to business now I suppose.

If you're looking to ship, we've got the best fleet in town!

A hilarious quote by an old friend at the Golden Hart: "Well. Given up alcohol, what's next, join the Valardins? This is madness." I so laughed aloud!

I swear the number of people who live in a city by the sea who cannot identify a ship or a boat is mindnumbing.

Its been a rather entertaining few weeks! The legacy of bovine athletics continues, and I was given the chance to see how long I could stay on a bull.

I must confess this has been one of my favorite winters in Arx; eventhough, I have not done very much. I would hire a bard to describe my feelings if I didn't think that most people would find it mundane. Is there such a thing as boring drinking song?

Relationship Note on Michael

Did I hear correctly that you rode a bull and won a competition to do so?

Where in the world would you ride a bull?

Though it is a while since I have been in the Capital city of the Compact, my time among the people of the compact is teaching much. A final trip made to Ischia and I return a new woman, ready to dedicate myself as a whole to the Compact and all of its ideals. I hope I'm able to speak as well as I write soon, but at least the customs are getting easier.

The Softest Whisper Anisha was very kind, spoke with a warmth and was very welcoming of me into their ranks as an apprentice. This is only a single step in a much longer journey but with luck, the city will never forget me this time. I will make an impression that is not forgotten any time soon.

P.S. The scholars have informed me that my last line sounds "very sinister" and warned me it may send bad impressions. I guess I am just clarifying I mean that I will be doing good things. Like whisper work, or doing business. I am also going to be visiting your shrines to try to understand your gods. I am told that writing in journals is pleasing to Vellichor, so I have already taken the first steps!

These past days I have been spending with the Count Blanchard in his lands have been quite edifying. Though Highhill is small at the moment, it is best to be prepared to manage the needs of baronies as well as one own's seat before the troubles begin to come.

A few drinks and time spent with friends was a necessary respite from troubles, worries, and distractions.

Can you believe Ripley is back in town, too? I don't think Arx is ready for all of us.

Please note that the scholars may take some time preparing your journal for others to read.
