Today's tea was a white tea, with lovely hints of delicate eastern fruits and berries. Delicious and refreshing.

I ponder on a lot of things as of late scholar. Am I leading my house in the right direction? Would my mother be proud of me? Even though I never really met her.... I guess one shouldn't dwell on the past, lest the present pass them by before they know it.

I wonder if I'm good enough
The words that ring in my ears
I know that I am tough
So says my peers

But am I really though
I wonder all the time
I guess it really does show
With these words of mine

Why is it that every time I attend a party, there has to be some Abyssal interruption which causes chaos and destruction?

The whole debacle cost the lives of many, one of which will be used as a rallying cry for years to come, with those facing such dangers finding themselves with "For Sir Frederico!" upon their lips.

I have come to realize that perhaps I may not be as useful in the treatment of such things as I may have anticipated. I will have to really learn how to fight, AFTER I order Tanith and Raymesin to take some time to enjoy themselves. Being stabbed puts things in perspective and turns on the Wheel are short enough as it is. [He asks as an aside to a passing Godsworn] I can do that, right?

im always thankful for those who are willing to take the time and effort to fill in the small blanks that prevent us from getting the full picture. So many people i think are ready to help, but dont know how to.

So, they do eat people. I always had a feeling, but... Well, I wish I didn't have confirmation.

It looked like cream swirling its way through a cup of coffee. Beautiful.

Relationship Note on Lyra

I was recently introduced to an entrepreneurial fellow who swears his allegiances to House Byrne. Though our meeting was only brief, he immediately made clear to me his prowess regarding trade, tariffs, and the competitive price points of imported goods via a detailed diatribe on the city market's available inventory. As I understand it, Messere Havmarke is Countess Byrne's minister of income. If true, I suspect that their financial affairs are in impeccable order. Her decision to entrust the man with such matters was nothing short of brilliant.

Ok, maybe people have a point about me making more time to unwind.

Damn. Tanith has a mean aim with her cheese flinging. I think this spot on my head bruised slightly.

The most interesting interactions happen when you have had a bit of haze. You become more loose in the lips and you discover things about yourself and your friends that you didn't know before. This is both a good thing and a bad thing.

Gods, it's nice to slow down. Today was a good day, with a great morning, and then I wound down the evening with a good pipe and some booze with friends in the Murder. -Off- duty. Even if cheese was flung and bad words were sad. Still a great day.

Relationship Note on Liara

I feel as though I ought to have a set of those chairs made and delivered to the Highlady. Never have I seen someone master them so quickly. Grayson, you are in exceptionally capable hands.

This time when I came home, the blood I was covered in was not mine. That did not seem to alarm Yasmine any less. Perhaps it is time to retire from a life of action...

Whisper Cesare, Princess Keely, and Lord Mattheu did a wonderful job teaching new dances. I learned a great deal. And I had the tremendous pleasure of co-teaching the Beaver Waltz with Princess Keely.

I am not the most-graceful dancer, but I get by. And that is enough.

Thank all that's holy, I had hoped Princess Keely's helpers meeting would be productive but I feared it would not be. Two matters I had been quite anxious about but not the energy, time, or idea how to begin to address are in most capable hands and now, perhaps, there is a place to air all those concerns the slip between the cracks. I think the last time I was this happy was when Her Grace gifted me with Requiem.

Relationship Note on Kastelon

Had some fun with Lord Kastelon at the obstacle course. The man may have one eye, but he's a force to be reckoned with. Glad he's on our side. The bugger nearly beat me.

I had a feeling Grimthog was going to be a problem.

The audience seemed to enjoy the show, at least. I knew from rehearsals that it would be entertaining, but the cast really outdid themselves for the premier. The actors turned in heartfelt performances and the music was flawless. They all have my deepest gratitude for turning the script I wrote into something magical and alive.

Many thanks to Princess Gwenna, Lady Mabelle, Lord Orland, Lord Savio, Gianna, Lord Mattheu, Lady Zoey, Auda, Lady Adalyn, the Bard's College choir, and of course, everyone who attended. I look forward to seeing the Thirteen Sorrows home to Artshall, where it all began.

Well, that was interesting, Scholar. Thought I'd drop by on my way back down to the Lowers and leave a note that it's a long bloody way up all those bloody steps, especially when you're carrying half a crate of cakes. Still, it's for the Archlector, so I don't mind too much, and it gave me a chance to say hello. Are we meeting for the usual pint tomorrow? Grand, I'll see you there.

What a wonderful thing it is to walk into the house and find someone there you haven't seen in a little while. Duty is important, but I do wish it could go hang a little more often - I'm sure I've found neatly-washed teacups over the last few months, but I think we've just kept missing each other.

Of course if Tanith wasn't out so much doing all the things she does as well as her midwifery duties - and if I wasn't out doing all the stuff I do as well as my midwifery duties - we'd see a lot more of each other. There are times I hate baby-catching season, but only when I'm left alone again.
