Relationship Note on Neilda
Just after the whirlpool disappeared, we slipped away with a small group to Nilanza, the surprise purpose of which was to catch her an octopus. We were rather successful and pretty much all of us wound up with one as pet (I still haven't named mine). She now has two! I would chase down a hundred octopuses - octopi? - to make her happy. She deserves it. My sister has been working hard for our family, and for me, and I would pluck every octopus from the ocean and every star from the sky if I thought either would adequately make up for everything she has done and will continue to do. She doesn't get nearly enough credit for what she does, for her talents, for her goodness. So, let me commit to the historical record: Lady Neilda Saik is phenomenal and I am one very lucky sister.

Don't look at me like that scholar, I once heard a story from a local fishermen who said there was a pod of rare white whales known to make appearances. What did -you- think I was talking about?

Plus, I almost got challenged to a duel over unadvised bee puns and revealing the truth of velvet being literal bee fur! A buzzing good time!

Was uneventful. Which for us lately, is a great thing!

Long roads and rivers that wind, an ocean that stretched out forever. A coast and a path and the pull of divine, the eyes of someone I recognized.
I Dreamed of a face, someone I knew. She Inspired and smiled and I knew I was safe.
In my dream there was tea, because, there is always tea. And we spoke of things to come. I told her of the world and she told me of hers, and we mused over topics dear to us.
She touched me and it was like lightning, a shock to my soul! Bright and sudden and it came to me:
A voice, and it said, "Listen to the people; the praise of Jayus is not always in those that toil in shop and shelter. Sometimes it is in the strangest of places He inspires devotees, and we must not forget them either!
"The soul can flourish, the heart can grow without ever holding a brush. You can build without hammers, carve without stone, and leave an impression on generations without sewing a single stitch.
"Songs to be written, poetry to write, there are plays to create and perform; there are dances to sway, graces to beguile, and other ways we can't comprehend.
"Make a home for those who create from the heart, with only memory to mark what they've made, stories and songs, actors who know their lines by heart, painters who paint only for themselves."
Her voice in my ear, I woke with a jolt, still on the ship that anchored by a shore I didn't know. The journey was real, the scent of her too, so perhaps there is real wisdom to be learned from Dreams?

I will keep this in my thoughts for the next few days as I reflect in the morning and evening prayers and ask the gods to help me focus on the details that might be diamonds in the rough which will be important for the future, and not distracted by what seems to be glittering gold. To let my mind and heart be open to receiving.
And as I promised many years ago, I will remain vigilant.

I do not want to think about the negatives, so I will simply assume the couriers failed to deliver, or receive. Or they've moved on. Both are far more preferable to the alternatives.
I curse my melancholic humours.

There's not much that I can add since my arrival to Arx once more. It has been a month and yet it feels as if I've only ever truly arrived but yesterday. The sheltering solitude of my room, the rare draft of cold that seeps through its window, it's a somnolent companion but the only I've wanted to cherish since the happenings in the East. Food has felt bland for some time now, compromise with the responsibilities of life unbearable, and meaning in it all hard to come by. Friends tell me it's but a phase from the duty faced there, in Elune. A recollection of emotions suppressed, trying to come out, but I know not if this is true.
Perhaps I shall linger here some time longer, awaiting that soon merciful oblivion that comes for us all. Morbid, isn't it? I suppose that, in that regard, I've never failed to deliver. Do not be disappointed, for there's much to ponder on, regrets to look back upon, dark truths to internalize from. I like to think inside such morbidity lies a fraction of truth, and the Queen will be laughing still, at the end of all my failings and remorses...
Either way, it is good to come back to you yet again. The journals help, and so does reading that of others, a reminder of life's stream flowing regardless of our successes and failings.
That is it for today, Custodian.

But cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.

And thank you to everyone that came out to celebrate with me last night. Probably Triton too. In spirit. He's probably in Stormheart, drinking and saying the same.
Please note that the scholars may take some time preparing your journal for others to read.
