It had often been said, and was indeed true… Hende was not the strongest figure to look, but her strength came from her heart. To watch over that which was most important to her gave a sureness to the aim of any blows from the staff which she carried as she protected the forest. … More Warrior
There’s something truly gorgeous about a beautifully-tied ribbon bow, I think. Someone with a few over-sensitive ideas about neatness, like myself, can spend a ridiculous amount of time fussing over keeping the loops of a bow equal, and making it look as pretty as it can. I LOVE the ribbons on these shoes, but … More Attachments
There is something… life-giving about standing in rain. We have had little chance to escape it here the past few days, but I do love the music that it brings when each drop hammers onto an umbrella, or splatters onto the flatness of leaves. There’s such a freshness to the air in contrast to how … More Coffee And Rain
The hissing jumble of snakes intertwined in her hair should be all the disclaimer warning that any unsuspecting soul should need. Burdened with a curse to turn all to stone who set eyes upon her, she wanders the land alone, save for the constant disapproving cacophony of her serpentine companions.

The assassin stood at what he felt was a safe distance. He had heard whisper that this might be where she was to be found, but had scarce believed it.

SL, a place you can live a…. second… life? I used to spend so much of my time in SL roleplaying, mainly on fantasy or medieval fantasy SIMs. Talk about pure escapism! I started out RPing a human, albeit much younger than my real self was at that time… somewhere in my early twenties, … More Pretty in pink!
It’s no secret to those who know me, that I often find social media too… noisy… too shouty….and oftentimes too emotionally demanding. I am old. I find it nicer to simply have a simple conversation with someone rather than shouting out to all the world in one fell swoop, leaving my words typed on a … More Pull up a seat!
I recently found a message from WordPress drawing my attention to the fact that I had been blogging with them since 2015. It surprised me, but it shouldn’t have because time seems to fly these days, and what I think was ‘only a year ago’ or so turns out to be many more. Many people … More A life lived in words
I wish there were a way to simply pack away all the parts of my personality that I am not proud of… and keep them hidden away. I have never claimed to be perfect, and mistrust those who profess themselves to be. That doesn’t mean I want to show my insecurities and flaws to everyone. … More Wistful Wanderings
