Well....Glad to see those crabs were wasted. Even if the smell near killed me. The Kennex pool party was, as always, enjoyable.

I feel they need a new pet however.

Relationship Note on Raimon

Were you at the Kennex party this past evening, and I didn't see you? It was indeed a lovely time, and a chance to meet members of the Kennex family I hadn't had the pleasure yet. The crab boil was divine.

Scholar Clive? Clint? whatever your name is...

A pondering for those in the city. If silver were to be placed upon a head, what would the weight of that piece be? And how many times could it be collected?

Relationship Note on Kiera

I realized recently that, though I have been acquainted with Lady Kiera Wyvernheart since my earliest days in the city, I do not know the woman half as well as I should. What I do know of her, however, is that her last name is truly fitting for one as brave and compassionate and willing to face a challenge as she is. I don't recall a time when I have ever seen her act out of anger, speak harshly of someone, or conduct herself in anything but a polite manner. But that doesn't mean there isn't strength beneath the softness. In fact, it takes a lot of strength to let yourself be soft in public. One shouldn't make the mistake of underestimating this brilliant woman.

The summer's heat is sweltering,
Humid, cloying, sometimes cruel.
House Kennex found the antidote:
-Throw- the party -- in a pool!

I held the competition for the fountains. It was a small, but lovely little event. I even wore silk! Shh. Don't tell anyone. Anyways, there were two entries. Both entries were very nice. So, I decided to keep both! Lord Valerian Kennex designed a fountain that had flowers in the base, so, I decided to use that one for the plaza itself. Samira made one of her praying. I was moved by the inspiration and decided to use it inside the library's main foyer. Wow. This vision has grown. I had originally only thought to make a small one-room building stuffed full of musty books. But, it is now becoming so much more!

Relationship Note on Michael

At the behest of my cousin, Duke Michael, I have finally arrived in Arx. This is not the same place I knew; it feels so much larger than it did when I was a child. One would think the opposite would be the case and yet here we are. I already long for the familiarity of Pridehall but am content enough to oblige Michael for the time, and remain here to serve the family as he sees fit. It is the least I could do.

Relationship Note on Khanne

While I'm not sure we can find anything to top how we celebrated our birthdays--much belatedly--last year, I feel it merits an attempt.

Let's find ourselves an adventure, my magnificent dawn. Let's begin our next decade well.

Scholar Clive, you've been away a while. I'm glad it's you who will take this journal for me.

I have recently been dealing with a situation in the northern Mourning Isles. Yes, the same my husband recently wrote of. There have been groups of Arvani who remain committed to the ideals of the late Ivan Helianthus setting up camps on the Isles of various Shav'arvani settlements. They fight under the banner of a red sun. These 'Ivanites' - of any stripe - are indiscriminate in their attacks. I have seen the horrible aftermath of their efforts to destroy both Shav'arvani and Prodigals. There is suspicion they may also be responsible for attacks on other noble houses which have not taken a more decisive stance against High Lord Victus.

These traitors hide behind symbols of the Faith, words of righteousness, and claim justification by tradition. Many such people were slain among the enemy at Pieros. It is clear that they have chosen to stand against the Compact. Their support of Ivan Helianthus and Waldo Bellerive has brought death to our very doors here in the city. The actions of their raiding parties disrupt trade coming from and going to the Isles. This cannot continue.

It would be good and just for the Compact to remember where Prodigals and neo-nobles have been in all of this - standing with the Compact against foreign and domestic foes, taking the lion's share of loss while enduring public prejudice, all without turning their backs or raising their arms or bolstering the ranks of the enemy against us. They should be lauded for their exemplary displays of honor and fidelity. Their blood has spilled the same in defense of all we hold dear.

In fact? Perhaps a good distraction from how little I can do while I recover from being nearly knocked unconscious and stolen away - presumably to collect a ransom - by an Ivanite would be reading stories of Prodigals and neo-nobles who did great things in the battle against the Skal'dajans. I invite anyone who reads this to write to me of what they saw, or what they did. Or come visit and tell me in person.

Relationship Note on Aisha

A Whispered Dance with Truth Herself,
Ideals held in close embrace!
To gaze within a silvered mirror . . .
Meet one's own -Self-, face-to-face.

Who knows the mysteries revealed
When all one's Masks are stripped away?
Who knows the secrets thence unsealed
regarded in the Light of Day?

The Stars alone bear witness to
the histories of all who live.
Shall not we stretch our arms aloft
to thus receive what Light they give?

Sometimes it seems like one can tell just how good a friend one is by the way they meet after a long absence apart. Some dive into talking and sharing lives, showing warmth and generosity of self like they were never parted while others are more distant, more aloof, like a nervous cat padding around something it has not made its mind up about just how wary to be.
