Hi friend, your latest entry from G'Quan was moving, but also pretty dark, so I just wanted to check in. Hope you're doing all right. Let us know if you need anything, okay? *virtual hugs*
I have always believed that the cure for the Darkness is the light of those who care. I appreciate these *virtual hugs* that you offer in the spirit in which they are given.
I admit the memory of that cell still can fill me with sense of dread and claustrophobia. It was a time of deep despair. Few look upon the certainty of their own death as a joyous event.
Yet it also made me understand that when you die, all you have is the life that you have lived. To be able to look back at your life and realize the sublime beauty of existence. Of eating a beautiful meal with those you love. To feel the touch of a lover. The sweetness of a child’s kiss. Of laughing with your friends. Even fighting a just fight with honor. The resolve that is the aftermath of defeat. The comfort of friends. The opportunity to give succor.
Basking in the beauty of Nar’Shal itself. The sun as it rises over the mountains. The cool touch of rain on your face. The perfection of a flower.
There are so many moments that make up a life. It is the moments that we regret that always come to mind when death is certain. Hopefully in that final moment my thoughts will dwell on my happiest times. The sincere joyous universe. Otherwise I am in a dark cage of my own making. I assure you one dark cage is enough for any lifetime.
This entry in my book was approximately 700 years ago and I assure you that I am quite whole. Thank you for your consideration, dear grammarian.
