It was wonderful getting to meet Duchess Lisebet Ashford, and even more so when she asked if I would like to have her as my patron. I'm deeply honored by her offer, and of course accepted it. I hope that the two of us may grow a supportive relationship, that may bloom into a friendship. I also had the pleasure of meeting her brother Ciaran, he seemed a nice gentlemen. Well educated, and very knowledgeable on some of the various Countries that surround us. I hope that perhaps I may have a chance to learn more about them from him, when he has the time. And I was most delighted to have gotten to see Lady Sunaia, it has been some time since we last saw one another. She is just as beautiful and delightful as I remember her.

I will get you an Ostrian kitten.

Then you can stop trying to thieve mine.

Small kitten clapping paws in the garden
It seeks the fluttering cloud of colors
This is how dreamers pursue their fantasy

This morning, I woke to sounds of panicked shrieking in the hall.

Thinking something was terribly wrong, I rushed out of my chambers to discover that our toddler had grabbed hold of and was trying to show her governess the half-eaten mouse which had been deposited outside the nursery door -- presumably by Tinsel -- as a 'present'.

To anyone else who is suddenly overcome with a desire to gift my children with unexpected pets, I feel I should warn you: I have a very large army, a Prodigal warlord for a husband, and little patience.

Relationship Note on Saya

I suggest taking the leap. If you want to know of a place to dive - and for a moment fly - I can recommend Pearlspre’s cliffs. There is nothing else like it.

Outside my home, modest as it is, stands the remains of a tree of sincerely large proprortions. This would be notable for it's girth alone. But it's been stripped of it's bark and upon it's surface it's been carved. I wonder how many hours it took for the artist to render the scene that's etched upon it.

I like to sit on my steps or look out the window and regard this piece of art. A battle totem I am told. Such change, and unasked for change, that the tree undertook. Transformation from something beautiful to something grand and inspiring of awe. How long has it been here and I just didn't see it till now?

Ouch, ow. Why did I ever agree to this outfit. No matter how carefully pinned or how skillful the tailor, when pieces are adjusted to fit, one or two of them seem to find their way to tender areas while removing the pinned garment to be sewn. At least this outfit will be ready for use for the concert. That skirt is certainly different from anything I have worn before. Wonder what the tailors call those sections that are too narrow to be flaps and too wide to be fringe, maybe just a lot of slits? The embroidery is so interesting.

I have never heard such a strange thing said about my family before!

Seems I've managed to misplace my weapons AND my armor. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for this.

I dreamt I was running the cliffs as a young one again. I dreamt of spreading my arms wide and running as fast as I could. I dreamt that I was flying every time I ran like this. I ran, and ran, and ran. I ran to the edge, and I wanted to jump over into the waters below, but my mother became hysterical and stopped me.

I wish I had dived. Dived into the waters deep and cold and full of freedom.

I love the Laurents but they all have scary eyes. Must be careful when around them even if everyone loves everyone. One of these days I'm going to end up dying from fright I think!

As a member of the Iron Guard, people take many things I say with weight I never meant it to carry. For instance, when I suggested we start calling the Cullers the Crullers in an effort to trick them into becoming bakers, I wasn't being serious. The idea was half-baked at best.

It is good to see a work complete at last. When I lay my hands upon the walls of the Rose of Solace, I think that, should all things proceed as they should, it will stand for long after I die. It will stand for long after my name is forgotten. Gods willing, it will stand so long until its own name is forgotten.

Further, it puts me in a mind to rebuild. Thinking about it and then Highhill reminds me that we are all always walking along the edge. I will take the things I have learned here with me as I go to reclaim that land, and prepare it so the tragedy of the Steelharts cannot happen again.

Absolutely thrilled to be hosting an event this week along with Tyche in recognition of the hard work that we've done. A good opportunity to meet and greet, but mostly simply a celebration of my own return to Arx!

My favorite part of planning the parties is working out all the little details where I tell people what to do.
