Update, 28 Sept. 2014: I found this entry again thanks to a comment from Tara Crow, and I inserted a link back to the passage from the Orien Fragments I wrote so long ago. Damn that was a good entry. Go read about the nominations for the office of the Eye of Alba, and the horrors uncovered when the nominations were put forward.

  1. Guided here, as always, by strangers poking at my blog and what I found was this:

    Part of a story written long ago. Entry date and time as follows: 30 September 2005, 10:33am.

    Syncs are in over drive, dear friend. Take care of yourself. Love to you and yours.
