The stoat no longer outranks me.

I think that may be why she is pouting at me and trying to eat my quills today.

Another night of useless violence, unneeded conflict and dick waving. I really hope it calms down, just for a day. One day...that's really all I want.

The finally payments have been made and thus the continued prosperity of our house grows. Both of them are grand ladies with good names and will serve House Farshaw well. Welcome to the Westrock merchant fleet, Lady Ivy and the Lady Elara.

Relationship Note on Luca

You were insufferable before, I'd imagine after winning that contest you'll be properly impossible to live with now.

I've several commissions on my docket but I've cleared up half. If you're interested in a commission feel free to send a missive, my recent focus has me feeling I've learned more in the last month than I have all year. Even when you're given the term 'master of trade', it's foolish to think you ever stop learning.

I'm curious about Aleksei Morgan's penance. Does this mean as he is supplicant at the mercy of the Gods, pious in his penance, will he have to relieve himself as he kneels? Be made to soil himself?


Why do you look at me that way, Scholar? I can't be curious about these things?

It will be cold too. He might freeze in place if he's made to be outside. Perhaps padding his clothing with dry moss? After the first day, which his fasting, it'll be easier if-

It IS TOO possible to love everyone all at once!

You can't tell me any different!

The real reason I don't often go to the Grotto is that it's very difficult not to walk by a bath, see someone stand up to bow or curtsy, then see everyone else in the bath stand up to do so because the first person did, then see everyone else in the other baths stand up to do so because the first bath did, and not feel like you've needlessly disrupted far too many people's personal relaxation time. I imagine that's like walking into a nursery and intentionally making loud noises to wake up all the babies; it feels morally incorrect on a deeply fundamental level.

That said, their wine selection is delightful and the indoor gardens are a wonderful way to recapture a bit of spring until the real one comes along, so I can't say I've never dropped in on a cold winter's day to warm up on the way from the Palace to the Bank or vice versa.

It appears that one can own an entire gem mine, and still not afford to buy class.

I went to the sip 'n spar at the Golden Hart today. It was good to catch up with friends and family, even in times of sadness and trouble. Maybe even more so during such times. The sparring was good to watch, though I think this is the first time there that I have seen so many people decide to fight without armour. It makes me wonder if this is the start of a trend. I am at the least completely certain that such fighting is not for me, which may well please my family. This does not mean that adventures are not for me; I think I still will have to go off and find things or learn things. Preferably both.

Book,

A joyous day, I cannot explain the rush of emotion that has overtaken me. Becoming a father has been the most amazing thing to ever happen to me, it is as if I thought I knew what love was, but then the first time I held him I really knew what love was.

How something so small and so helpless can bring me to my knees escapes me, my entire mindset altered in brief moments, suddenly I find myself being more concerned with my own choices, I must live the example I want my son to see, I must teach him the things a father should.

What a blessing the Gods have given me in both my beautiful wife and my amazing boy!

Today I was in the garden with a beautiful woman. It was cold as ever but we were sitting in the Grotto's warm garden. What is love, do you think? For me, it is a feeling, though for other's I do not know what it could be about. Perhaps for some, it is a feeling of warmth in the pit of one's stomach?
In all honesty I have not felt love in so long, at least not recipricated love, that I do not know what to call it. I have felt love, yes. I know the flutter of my stomach when someone I love walkes into a room, but there are different types of love, I think.
Perhaps this is just me being interspective and having a late night, but it is a thought. What is love to one person? What are the feelings one gets when confronting it?

Book,

This tour has done good for my mind, my body and my soul. It has given me some direction and let me see some of the needs of our people up close and personal. I have ideas now, plans even for what the military can do to help Thrax as a whole become a more favorable House than it even is, and plans for helping our lesser Houses rebuild and flourish.

In truth, being at sea where I feel my calling has been a great blessing and getting to take my wife along to let her see it all was a bonus.

I arrived in Arx a little over two weeks ago and to say that I was unprepared for the city was an understatement. But most, if not all of the people that I have met have been kind and warm in their welcomes. I've met nobility and commoner alike. Mostly Nobility and it's been very different than I've dealt with in the past. It's refreshing in a way. I know there will be those that are very stern with traditions. So I will be alert and always use the etiquette that I've learned. I'm just still getting used to my new home.

There's so much to be written, so much to be reflected upon, so many words that I could spread with this ink. But, instead of all that has been happening of late, I'll focus on something smaller. I've had a few successful client-students begin lessons with me at Whisper House. Getting back to this work, to that which I was raised to do, is to very rewarding. I thank the Gods for this opportunity.
