a halfling's journal

I've plenty of time to stop and think. I was sitting beneath an oak
this morning, and I had a conversation with my spirit. As I sent forth
a smoke ring I realized that there is work to be done. My spirit felt
that too much was out of wack in the world. I did not quite understand,
my spirit spoke of misuses of power, education and knowledge. I feel
frustration even trying to wrap my mind around the problems of the
spirit world, it sounds at once both a horrible and very wonderful
thought dawned on me that I may have to devote more time to my spirit.
It is a thought and not much else, I find it difficult to focus on a
spirit so confused and frustrated.
I will sleep on it for a bit and see what I can gather from friends at a council of rootbeer.
G'nite and sleep well.

Just got back from a walk around East Forest, did I hear it called Oakwood? Hmm, must ask again.
court case commentary this evening. Babajaga vs Wangah Rah, the gist
was one was with holding information the other felt was important for
everyone. I do not believe anyone was punished. I was only half
listening to the conversation through my sunstone, but I think this may
be a topic that deserves some research. Maybe it is not...
my beginning searches of East Forest have turned up very little. Mostly
a confirmation that it is teaming with life, teeth claws and all. Must
ppersist for a while with the tree inspections.

First night in my new home, I'd like to thank Sabbit for making sure I
got in safely. I sit here wrapped in my cloak, more for comfort than to
ward off chill. Seems strange to be alone, but I like the quiet. I can
see the stars through the bows overhead. I shall have to ask Wystii the
names of some of these constellations.
grove is safe, but I wonder about its weather-fastness. Come winter I
may call on the las who sold me this staff if I could possibly stay
warm in her dwelling. I'd have to get to know her first, dont want to
bust in all uninvited and asking for things she may be uncomfortable
Purchased a quarterstaff today, works well! Tried Sabbit's rapier as well and its quite nice.
Not much else to say. I shall try to get some sleep, and hopefully dream.

Ah, once again it takes me a bit to return to journal and quill.
most recent news is that Tan has held it Guiding Heart elections, for
those of you who do not know it is an event held every two years. This
election gave us: Karkras, Tas, Alayn, Drenn, and myself. I am proud to
be chosen for this position and continue the work lain before me.
was elected both Hunt and Expedition Leader, wahoo! Its a good choice.
Tas is also the Clan Treasurer and Luna has been offered the position
of Meeting Coordinator.
Now that this event has come, I have
finalized my plans and arrived at my decision. I am to leave town on
the 3rd day of Summer 543, I leave with the new moon. During this time
I will concentrate on strengthening both mind and body, so I will be
studying Mentus and Hardia.
The little grove I picked out is
ready and I've made it a tad more cozy, though it's nothing like the 3•
healer lounge. All are welcome to visit.
I must go, still much to do before I leave.

Well it seems a while since I set pen to paper, and in that time I have
been honored by Winds of Dawn by being included in their collection of
scrolls. My thanks to you if you are reading this message.
a bit has indeed happened, and if I return in good patience I shall try
to set it down. For now I am taking a walk, and will maybe learn a
thing or two of the Drake with a fondness for Halflings.

Last night a meeting was held and Diablo was inducted into the Clan. We
also discussed the dissolution of Sausage. That in turn broke down to a
bit of an argument as tempers began to rise, not unjustly so, but it
changed the mood some.
I joined Thalion on a short jaunt to Centaur Island, made some money
hunting and had a pretty fun trip. I travelled there, to the forest,
only once before in my early exile. I was glad to not have to depart.
I does my heart good to see Thalion out and about. I hope his healing has started.
Good night all.

With a heavy heart I bid Sausage farewell from the clan. He quits just
as I ran into the Clan Hall to stop him, but alas I was too late. He
has issues that may need to be addressed with the clan.
dont know what to say...it and some of the behavior of fellow Tans in
the NE field during a Nox, more at Lilit ritual from what I gather, has
cast a dark shadow over a previously bright start. I made it through my
studies with Marsh Hermit, the old fellow told me I kept him on his
Well, I must go, there is much to think about.
I pray for my fellow exiles, may the Seasons keep them safe from harm, and in some cases, themselves.
