Whirling Brain…

Wow, my 200th post.

So, as I heal, I draw. Ideas are pouring out of my little pencil and onto paper. Soon, there will be a new assortment of inspired designs. And, some pole arms and hunting spears, and the beginning of an assortment of ritual short swords.

Thank you Arta for a new, and very PATIENT, post-mistress.

And if the spring pruning around town happens AFTER I’m healed, perhaps a bow or two. I miss bowery. Already gearing up for a black-powder cartridge pistol, and then gunsmithing will be underway!

Almost done…

I feel the fire in my brain alive again – and I can honestly say it’s nice to have it back. Now to get over the new scars I’ve collected recently… Sigh.
