Heading back to Saikland for a few weeks. My presence is required to prepare for some expeditions that I shall be going on soon to uncover the secrets of the Lyceum (a never ending task!). While there I also hope to teach at the Bard's College at the newly established branch in Saikland. It will be nice to see how the faculty is shaping up, and to scout out any potential artists who might one day come to the City to display their skills.

I've met a handful of interesting peers and even was given helpful suggestions on turning over a more lady like brother. Now to figure out this business of being a house sword.

It is nice to meet new people and learn just how very many people that both know. It makes them seem not so distant.

The path to take may be our choice, but it's in our best interests to seek directions from the Pantheon.

Spending a lot of time with the children lately. It's good for me, I think. It helps to put things into perspective.

I am so used to Lycene events..
I feel it a victory that no one was found dead or poisoned...
Perhaps I'm optimistic

We took Atramentous to his favorite place and buried him. He was getting so old that his muzzle was mostly white. But he never let things stop him. He was my constant shadow in these last handful of years. I still remember when Seth gifted him to me. He was just a huge puppy and I loved him.

Raring to go and finish the work my cousin sets me to. Faster I finish, faster I can return and enjoy myself and content myself knowing that it's one step closer to peace.

One finds the warmth of friendship and creating joint plans to improve the economy of holdings is as comforting as an old familiar song beside a cozy fire on cold autumn evenings. It signals hope for the future, that one is not standing alone, and helps ensure continuation if things go wrong.

The winds find another and carry their song upon them, leading their joy and the love which they shared with so many to the farthest reaches to be allowed a breath upon another's lips and cheeks. Always to be missed, always to be seen within those that are here and available to dance, laugh, and enjoy in who they were.
The bells ring for their loss, their joy, their love, the love shared, and most importantly, for those of us who will carry them with us in everything we do moving forwards.
I might have been indifferent at first. Though the love they shared, and helped within our family will forever be remembered.
The only one to be able to get a cookie from Amelia without sneaking.
A man that I am proud to call brother.

You build your legacies on the traditions of swords and a sword only serves one purpose.
So you have to assume that as long as the foundation for things is built on top of this, on sharpened steel, war will endure.
Which is fine for me. I am what the world has made me. I flourish in acres of blood.
But what they say, about living by the sword and dying by it, is true. True enough, anyway, for people.
True enough for nations then, I'd reckon.

It's difficult to have to let go of a dream. It happens to all of us, I'm told, but that doesn't make it any less difficult. Perhaps it is just part of growing up, but it still leaves a tinge of sadness and regret.
I suppose I will adjust over time and make do. As we all must.

In this city, it is easy to give away one's body in sexual lust and passion. It is not a surprise that around any corner, willing encounters are only but an ask away. What is harder, is the heart. After so many years in trying to find someone compatible with me, I thought there was hope. However, it seems that more is appealing than the comfort of one. And so I am single, again. Or maybe I always was. Less is more, as they say. Less is more.
Until we're talking about gold and silver, then more is always more. And that is where I shall be putting my focus towards.
The Krosse Bank is open for business. Or I suppose, I called it the Estroch Trading Company and Investment Brokerage. But it is. A. Bank.

I really need to cease mooning about in my rooms, you'd think I'd learn a lesson, but no sooner than I make progress, I stumble into my cousin hosting a dinner party while singing a song best not heard in polite company. I'd have thought it had been a horrible dream, but Rohran wasn't around, I was clothed, and I did have a saving grace. Now if only I could find out why Princess Keely was looking so smug.

What happens when you die? Your body returns to from the dirt that made it and your soul to the wheel, to await their turn at a second go at it?

A joust with more than two participants feels awfully foolish. Maybe even dangerous!

It's been nice to step out and...socialize a little.

Time for catch up. I'll bring the kids and you bring yourself. We have missed you.

I understand I missed quite the enjoyable ride. It's unfortunate and I hope there's another in the future.

The winter ride at the Clements was such a pleasure. I think the horses and the dogs enjoyed it as much as we did. Lord Vitalis and Baron Norwood had the kindness to host drake and i for a pleasant ride on an interesting course and a wonderful dinner afterwood. I don't think they realized it was the first time I spent a relaxing evening with my brother in quite some time. We've both been busy and running in different directions lately. my only regret was that Thea was at home recovering from injuries and unable to join us.
