Slow down

Slow down

The world at large is still in fear, Of the passing times and the rolling years. We never know what the next might bring. It's a lovely day, simply wasted away By the fast moving people and their quick moving pace. Why do we choose to neglect, instead of taking time to respect the world at large? Would it be so bad to slow it down? Get back to our roots, somewhere in the small town. Take the time to get to know, the world as it moves on. We should all stop.... to smell a rose. The sky is always blue, where the neighbors smile. It's great to belong to a place. That not only knows your name, but knows your face. Everytime
See all

S'Barinth: 2 :Training

Skirmishers. When it absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt must be destroyed, you send in skirmishers. They wear light armor, and wield dual or single light weapons. They are eagle-eyed masters of long range archery. Their horsemanship is unsurpassed, but their true calling is a style of attack so devastating, it can crush units and morale with equal ease-the hit and run. Like any other military skill, though, it takes time and hard training to develop these powerful attacks. The Skirmishers' training is more strenuous than any other unit, more than the heavy infantry, more than the cavalry. Skirmishers must be able to perform any role on

S'Barinth: 1 :Introduction

The most fearsome thing for a parent is to see their child in danger; however, in order to test the mettle of some individuals it is necessary for their lives to be endangered. In the case of the S'Barinth recruits, this is done to judge their reaction to certain high-tension situations. Saeban was a recruit, Saeban was being tested, and Saeban was in deep trouble. The minotaur had already made two passes, which Saeban had only narrowly dodged. He gripped the hilt of his sword a little tighter and then relaxed his hands as the words of his trainers ran through his head. "A tight grip, the sword hilt will slip!" If he gripped it too tight

Mirrors

The mirrors have two sides The one we show The other we hide We let the world try and define While we just sit and enjoy the ride The time on Earth is fleeting fast and we hide in shadows and watch it pass Afraid to peak or look at the lights of the lives we see passing by And in the shadows and in the dark we hide away the parts of our hearts no one can see the other side and the mirror is a trap behind which we lie Reflections show what we want to be And it all seems so easy but to make a change we must start from inside and open up and show what we hide and lay our souls to bare. We have only this time here Best

Any Other Way

When I wake up all I want is your arms around me. When I go to sleep You're the last thing I want to see. I'd love to have you Forever beside me. And baby I wouldn't have it any other way. There's a hole there Whenever you're gone. It hurts me so baby until you come home. I love you so much I don't know what to do.... and baby I wouldn't have it any other way There's a cold, cruel world waiting on the other side, but I'm safe here with you, basking in your loving light And no matter what I do and no matter where we go as long as I'm with you I wouldn't have it any other way. No I wouldn't have it any other way. From h

Sleep

Dark swirls intertwined with red All the bad colors in my head and they spiral down until everything is gone I try as I can and I try as I might but I just can't seem to get this right and it's all just a wash anyways And we cling for dear life until our dying days And everything that's here will all just dissappear as the clouds gather overhead and we realize it's all done and we sleep...as the dead. I've seen the hotels of the gone I've seen the rest stops of those gone on... and I long to find out what's on the other side... but is it fear that drives on or a morbid desire? And everything that's here will all just d

Hold

Hold on to what you need Find strength in what you believe Love like there's no tomorrow and try to shed off sorrow. There will be time for troubles and there will be time for woes But hold fast to what you know until the bad times go. There's always a place for you Don't forget to give your due And thanks from those will come like a river flown forth to you. In all the times you see, both good and bad please be a humble person for the gifts laid at your door. And all this I do pray that each and every day My heart that dwells in you receive the love it's due And all this I do pray that each and every day My love that I

Costume crafting

Costume crafting

So, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Steampunk and Victorian era costumes. So much so that I have decided to start making my first costume. I'm giving myself a year, and hopefully I can pull it off. Especially since I'm not much of a tailor, nor do I know REALLY how to start. I have some ideas, and I'll be putting them on paper and hopefully they'll take off. For now, what I'd like is to commission folks, if not immediately REALLY soon to help me out with it. I don't have many watchers, but a lot of you may know people who can either make leather, or other costume pieces. Here it goes, will you wonderful people help me put together my fi

So, we've seen some positive changes from the new president already, and we've seen some things that give us pause. With Daschle withdrawing his nomination, which I completely agree with, we have to look at the Health care sector and wonder what's going to happen. Was there a contigency plan? I've watched more news in the past two weeks than I've ever seen. I'm finally growing up for once. That aside, let's move on to me. Already lost nearly 10 pounds. I figured I'd lose the first ten pretty quickly. I'm on pace as it is to lose about 2 pounds a week. I'm eating when I'm hungry, I have a light snack in between and I'm not going back for seco

One More Test/Biscuit Poisoning.

So, we have one more run of tests for Little Man. The good news is that so far everything has come back in the normal range. That means a good possibility of no more chances of a stroke, at least that is until he gets much, much older. As for me, well I decided I'd best be seeing a doctor too. It has been a long time since I've had a check up, but I went specifically for a couple of problems. Snoring, and my weight. The two are related, which I knew, and I'm overweight. Congratulations, I already knew that. So, the doc and I had a conversation about ways to curb my weight and get it under control. Things I already knew about, but knowing and
