Relationship Note on Valerius
This spring feels more like spring than all those which preceded it simply because my husband has returned to me just as the snows melted, just as the world turned green and bright again.

I did manage an excellent diving roll to dodge a charging horse that the servants all applauded though. I just I wish I could have saved Kevin. Rest in peace.

I haven't had the best luck so far. The patrons themselves have been great! They just have a way of /disappearing/. First there was Duke Leo, and he helped me with a lot of things; I even still have the coin he gave me. But he vanished. It took me most of a year before I broke the patronage and found a new patron. But Prince Talen offered funds and resources to help with my personal projects, so it was a good match. But now he's gone too, and it's silly of me to keep this patronage, just like before.
(What am I doing wrong? Is it Lycenes? Is that my mistake?)
Or maybe it's a chance to break with my past and walk a new path entirely. I've felt called to Jayus -- to the gods -- for years now. I've watched friends and family take their vows ever since I came to Arx. But there's always been some reason, some excuse, some fear of leaving things behind.
But what am I leaving behind? Being honest, it's unlikely I'll ever have children. I don't need wealth or possessions. I already spend most of my time outside of the shop at the Shrine of Jayus. I don't even know what holds me back any longer; is there some part of me that doesn't entirely want to let go of the Storied Blade? Even if I had to after taking vows, even if the store had to close, I'm certain I could find a workshop somewhere else to keep crafting.
But there's something in the back of my mind. Some fear, some thought I can't quite bring into focus, that makes me hesitate to take that step. I need to lure that fear out into the light, and see what it looks like.

The meeting went as according to plan and all parties are well informed.
I do hope, when he said he can make fires, he can. We'll need it.

I find myself less inclined to go to social events, since it feels like more a chore. Smiling behind my fan as my steward breaks down each man by his lands and ventures. Measuring their blood lines like prized thoroughbreds. Discussing their social standing and penchant for scandal. Smiling and laughing, trying to stay engaged when really all I can think about is my pinching slippers.
Maybe I'll just let my brothers find happy matrimony. Let one of their heirs take my seat. Then I can focus on my work. It's far more satisfying than matters of the heart.

Which is lovely because I am going to need a babysitter, I am certain. Maybe several, depending on how terrible my child is. I say that, because I've heard that a child is the opposite of its mother, and I was always a sweet natured and gentle baby.

Sometimes things need to be said. Sometimes things need to be challenged. Sometimes you can't do that in a very polite fashion. And sometimes it shouldn't be polite anyway. I think there's a balance that can be struck between fawning over someone and shouting over them.
I don't claim to have managed it, but I think it's possible.

The theme is The Thirteen, our gods and goddesses of the Pantheon. They need not be prayerful but inspired by in some way.
Of course, all poetry can fall under the auspice of Jayus, so all poetry is welcome, whether fitting the theme or not. Gods know I can never turn away an earnest effort at poetry. It makes my heart sing to hear it, whether novice or professional, rhyming or free verse, lyrical or narrative.
I hope to see new faces as well as the familiar.

Its spring, thank the GODS! I've set out upon the waters as often as I can lately to either conduct business from my ship or to take people out on a leisure cruise along the coast. Whoever reads this, let this be a standing invitation that should you wish to take a leisure cruise along the coast (I suggest at sunset) I am more than willing to take you and your party out, provided I do not have some pressing matters at the time.
