Cancel the Dance of the Knives

Image hosted by
Good evening everyone

Gracious, I must appologize for my absence the last day.  Salish and I were just settling in to our room at the Hermatige when a carrier pigeon flew in the window and deposited a note on the desk.  It was from my son Connor begging me to perform my famous "Dance of the Knives" for the Queen.

I did pack my knives and my costume (made up of no less than seventy veils in all sorts of bright jewel tones).  Now how shall I explain this?  Well bother, I may as well jump right in and be honest with you all.   I do have some stage fright, and I was so terribly excited to perform for the the queen that when I was practising in front of Salish (and I had all 9 knives in the air) I tripped over three of my seventy veils!  I went flying, the knives went flying, and, well, you can see what happened to poor Salish.  Frankly, he came out of it better than I did.

I have decided that it is best if I play it safe and perform one of my favorite poems told to me as a child by my mother instead.

Welcome Bobbi - I can tell right away you need a soothing hot soak - those knives! Amazing story you have told one and all. That man at the Bathhouse knows just how to deal with this kind of thing from back in the olden days...enjoy the sights and diversions, and some solitude if you prefer....Hermit.

Hi Bobbi,

Welcome to you and Salish. I've missed you at the Abbey. Hope things are doing better at home. I'm glad you made the second tour--you're going to be exhausted but you'll love it!

LOL Heather, that you for the award. Poor Salish and I what a mess we are!

Believer! It is so very good to see you again. It has been a difficult time lately but I have found my chin and raised it up a notch.

I am so glad to be apart of this wonderful adventure and I am back in the abbey working on my next piece.
much love & hugs,

This is brilliant - I do hope you are both feeling better now. I always feel it's best not to mix knives and veils, there are bound to be tears before bedtime
