Finding Memories
For as long as she could remember, the heavy wooden trunk had been sitting at the foot of her mother's bed. As a child, she had watched as her mother carefully sorted through the trunk, putting things up and taking them out as the seasons demanded. As a teenager, she had studiously avoided snooping through the trunk as if it were a sacred space… and in a way, it was.
The time came when she had to sort through her mother's things. She took a long time to leaf through the stacks of papers, half-empty bottles of inks, old quills, little jars of salves and poultices. A neatly folded stack of blankets that had warded off the chill of the wind through the window that her mother had mostly kept open in the last few weeks.
She saved the trunk for last.
When she opened it, it was with held breath. She did not know what she expected to find. So much of it was, at first glance, ordinary. Her mother's working clothes – the plain gown and riding leathers. A stack of handkerchiefs. Fresh paper.

Operating System: Coffee
Long time since I updated this!

I haven't taken any pictures, really, since like October. ;__;  I mean to correct this soon!

In other news, my main journal has moved and can now be found at DreamWidth: &nb… are mirrored at LiveJournal still; replies are acceptable at either location.

I am also currently taking an online novel course that is designed to last two years.  TWO YEARS.  Probably, this is madness, but if you'd like to know more you can find out about that here:

Feel free to follow along either place!  If I get anything of substance, I will try to remember to update here, too.

  • Drinking: coffee!

Oh, and I set mine to watch yours! :)

Not at all! Perhaps I should post something so that you actually have something to watch!
