Ashes and Dirt
I see her shoulders tense, then one hand releases as the other arm swings out and round. Ashes form a plume on the wind.
“He’s gone, Darion. Free at last.” Essa blinks back tears as she smiles at me. There’s a release in her eyes, a relief and a parting. The peace she so desperately sought has finally found her.
She watches as I think, my reply lost in the churn of memories. The man she mourns had my back across thirty worlds and ninety campaigns. We held the line at Rokuna and were part of the rearguard at the retreat from Sebastien. I held him up after he lost a leg to Blemenase Marauders off Shiristan, forming a three-legged fire team those brutal, poetic bastards still sing myth-songs about. Barely a year later he carried me from the ruins of Depnu, leaving my arms behind.
Powered prosthetics with shield generators became our trademark. On Talkinur we went from military service to mercenary elite without a blink. That’s where we were when an air condit

Personal Quote: Better to ask for forgivness later than for permission first.
Soooo holy crap, its been about a year since I last did anything on here. This year has certainly been a year of change. I can't say its been all good or all bad, just...change. And I'm not really a fan of change. I did get a new car this last May. Bought it myself. Yay. Car payments. I think I'm officially an adult now. I'll see if I can dig up a good picture I took when I first got it. I licked it. Its mine.

I realized doing the photos for this year's Christmas Keychains that I seriously need to just buckle down and buy a new camera. My phone (which is what I'm currently using to take picture) is not the greatest in the first place and now its trying to die on me.

Speaking of Christmas Keychains and year of change...I learned a new chain maille weave this year! for me. I finally figured out the Full Persian 6-1 weave. Its a weave that I had been struggling to learn for the last five years or so and I finally figured it out right around Thanksgiving. It is, I think, my new favorite weave. Other projects are still in the works. Kinda got burned out from my big project last year, which I know, I still haven't gotten pictures of it up. I have come to the realization that its entirely possible pictures of it may never go up. But the end result of the burnout was that I really didn't pick up pliers again until about June this year. I needed a break and my creative/design muse went on vacation so I wasn't really motivated at all.

I have this habit of telling designs that don't cooperate to just sit there and think about what they've done. I had one such project actually do that. I put the project aside mid to late last year and about October, while I was in the middle of work, the design pops up with a "hey, will this work?" in my head. Of COURSE that will work. It took you 8 months to freaking think about this? Gah! Anywho, that project is now well on its way to being completed and will probably be done sometime after the first of the year. Assuming I don't procrastinate on it anymore than I already have. Holidays. They are either the motivators or killers of projects.

Here's to hoping that next year will be a little more active. Now that I have experienced enough frustration over my phone camera, a new camera is probably very close in the near future. Which should help with being more active.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas (if that's your thing, if not, have a wonderful what ever you choose to celebrate) and a fantastic New Year.
