My attention keeps being caught by roots lately. Thick roots anchoring ancient trees to the ground. Spindly roots tenaciously clinging to life along the roadside. Knotted roots that might trip a boot or sturdy roots dangling low to provide a helpful handhold.

At the docks there are ships with towering masts; trees without roots. What might it be like to be so rootless, cast to the whims of waves and wind? I spread the wings of my imagination and try to see-- but I am too entangled by my own roots to soar.

Yes, if you touch the flame it will burn you.

But, how else does one learn how to walk through the fire?

Touching you I catch midnight.
as moon fires set in my throat
I love you flesh into blossom.
I made you.
and take you made.
into me.

I have a bruise on my back that serves as proof otherwise.

Relationship Note on Dacian

I find myself reconnecting with people as of late, once such person is Merchant Dacian Krosse.
I find his skills at finding things you are looking for to be excellent, he takes his trade very seriously.
I sujest if you are in need of a merchant and looking for something seek out Merchant Dacian.

Stories are powerful things. I was told one recently that has stuck with me so tightly that I have caught myself longing for the stars as one would an old friend. It may sound silly, but I enjoy remembering their faces, all those people I have lost along the way.

Have decided to turn my attention to learning to be the best General possible. Deciding that was the easy part. Now the rub is figuring out HOW. First step: studying Generals before me. Both bad and good.

Relationship Note on Dacian

Oh I am very pleased. Very pleased indeed. I have a protege!

I discussed many things with Master Dacian and we came to agreement that we are sharing this path in our lives. Nothing could please me more. I am excited for things to come.

Bear cubs are not pets.
Even if they are small like your dog.
And fluffy.
And suffering.
And really cute and you just want to help them.

All the singing going on around brought a song from the olden days to mind;

"The time has come in many ways,
To press for better days,
For strength and hope and fam'ly dear
To hold for many years.

But slaver's bonds do heavy clang
And darkness overhang,
While secrets keep the masses still
And knowledge-keepers kill.

Beware the three that threaten all,
And light and dark recall,
Prepare for battles large and small,
Lest humans fin'ly fall."

Of course I didn't mean you, dear. Bless your heart. In a city of pebbles, you're a nugget of gold.

I am back in this fetid city. Every minute spent here still feels like a waste. Arx is where the noble houses send their insipid to minimize the amount of damage they can do. I think it was Bert Dill who first said that. So, this is my self-imposed exile. Let them try to [mess] with me. What doesn't kill me here will only make me stronger.

Hello again it's me. / Your shoulder's where I sit. / The half nobody sees of a silent partnership. (Basia, New Day For You)

And here we are.

I've reached the peak of this foothill. Now to climb the mountain... and in time to the stars.

I didn't realize how much I missed being a true Redrain. Never did I imagine I would be back to my beginnings. My roots. Princess.

Let me apologize in advance if you see my beloved daughter Raya announcing to any who will listen that she is Princess. Best not take that title from her now or tell her anything different.

I am amused.

It is so good to be home once again.

Yes, yes. I am still an Inquisitor and advisor to the Iron Guards. I just happen to be wearing one more hat or should I say crown now?
