Shattered one of my best teacups upon an Oathlander within an attempt to ride a horse. The horse is back to pulling the cart for market hauls.
Still confused by something said about the shop having been burned to the ground.
What exactly happened as I was away?

Relationship Note on Caspian

I have known Caspian since I first came to the city, it feels like forever and a day ago now.
I had many things going on when I came to the city and never got to truely sit down to get to know him and in that I do have regrets about. But here recently it seems that we have found the time to sit and talk and I am thankful for it. I have found a friend that I did not know I had. Every time I sit and speak with him, he truly amazes me.

Soon spring will be upon us.

I will miss the snow.

I will miss the ice.

I will miss the cold.

I don't mind spring too much. It is at least bearable.

It is summer though that becomes unbearable to me. One can only shed so many clothes off before it becomes indecent.

At least with winter you can bundle to be warm. Find a warm body, fire or drink.

Maybe I need to look at the seasons coming more critically.

Will one of the bovine lovers open a bar called "The Tipsy Cow" already?
And put a cattle bell over the door?
And serve cocktails based on milk?
And cover the seats with cow hide?
There. Pitched to the realm.

I'd open a dog lover bar but I'm already committed to bees.

Two lovely dinners amid friends and allies the last few days were heartwarming and worth the effort of trudging through the snow to attend them.

I plan to host more dinners as the months pass so that we can be aware of what is going on in the fealty chain and to remind them that we are always here if they need us.

I recently sent out a message that I was looking for patronage, particularly from someone able to raise funds so that I may travel out into the world to classify all manner of plant-life: herbs, flowers, shrubs, trees, mosses, even mushrooms. This is not merely an effort to increase my and the rest of Avrum's collective understanding of botany, but one I hope will produce tangible benefits: better remedies to heal the ill, new spices to flavour our food, plants grown for no other purpose than their sheer beauty, and plants that offer recreational properties when imbibed or inhaled. The list is practically endless.

Both Archlector Felix Meadson and Lady Marli Zaffria reached out to me, offering to guide me as my patrons. After conversing at length with both, I am now formally and officially one of Lady Zaffria's proteges. I truly hope the future will be bright for both of us.

Relationship Note on Talwyn

We got through the months of morning sickness undetected. At least Talwyn was home at Saik Tower then. We got through the mid months where strategic use of shawls, loose garments, bulky armor with cross body belts, pouches and the like concealed the growing belly, or so I think no one really noticed. So much is happening to occupy attention of others. Then there was need for one of us to return to Saikland and Talwyn left. I miss my husband. There is no hiding that there will soon be another Saik infant though. I took a little tumble on an icy patch in the snow and the midwife had to check me over a few times. All is well and Tally will soon be a father to another child.. or two if this turns out to be twins again. Wonder what shall we name him or her or them?

It's common for people to have "falling" dreams, common enough for ridiculous superstitions to spring up around them, like the one where if you hit the ground in the dream you die for real (even if this were true, and it's not, how would anyone *know*?). I've been having jumping dreams. There's always a cliff, or a rooftop, or a tree. Sometimes I'm running. Sometimes I'm just bracing on the edge. Sometimes I can see where I want to land, and sometimes I can't see anything at all. Every time, though, every time I make the leap, because every time I know I *have* to get to wherever I'm trying to go. It's an eternity in the air, waiting and second guessing well after it's too late for second guesses.

The dream never lasts long enough for me to be able to tell how it works out.

...So I guess I admit that I've yet to have one where I actually hit the ground.

I cannot believe how fast Lily is growing, she is almost five now and she knows how to give me troubles. How do you tell a child that now understands you're going away that it's okay and you will be back. But she knows, somehow, she knows how serious this trip back home is, she has been having nightmares at night and they been long nights staying up with her. How do you tell her or denie her when she asks you to stay.

I've had some thought-provoking conversations since I last saw you, Scholar, as well as some conversations that weren't so thought-provoking. But I did get to demonstrate to someone just how you take down someone wielding a greataxe with just a knife, so that was nice. There's a technique to taking on people with longer weapons, and I can teach how it's done if you're interested. Eh? No, I have to make a living somehow, there's no 'Lord' in front of my name, and most of the silks are probably quite relieved about that.

Relationship Note on Dagon

You will see no sadness or regrets expressed here regarding the death of the former Duke of house Tyde, in spite of the fact that I got along with him well enough in the past. Perhaps if he'd tried to exert his claim before he sat back and allowed division to run rampant through the Mourning Isles for years, I'd have been among those to follow him. With the way that things shook out, however, the only thing his death brings me is relief. Perhaps now those who were following him will see sense so that we can turn our attention to the true enemies we have.

It is my distinct honor to have the opportunity to ride and travel with the Knights of Solace. For those who enjoy an opportunity to range out and see the world, all while performing an honorable duty to your fellows? It's hard to beat.

A delight to host something once more in the city here. Truly the Baroness Natalia did excel, I was there as supporting act, but it certainly has got me planning.

At least something to take the edge off.
