Raven Story Pt. 1
The village of Vandoren is quiet, the citizens are in their homes and the local roughians are in Moyer's tavern, in their usual drunken stupors.  The road through town is completely empty, as rats and snakes scurry and slither across the open field behind the shops and other places business on the main road.  The field glows a golden brown that sings in the sunlight, of the days of old when it was luscious and green, giving it an ancient beauty.  A large blue lake is on the opposite side of the tavern completely surrounded by forest except for the small village.  The icy wind blowing from the north frosts the tips of the golden blades of grass, and the normal spring sun melts the frost away in a seemingly endless cycle.  The birds bring the village alive with their harmonious singing, as the snakes make feeble attempts at climbing the trees in hopes of getting an early lunch.  
Like clockwork, Moyer's tavern doors fly open as

Part of a part of 'Raven'
The dirt road emerging from the forest of Souls was deafly quiet.  The dust began rising from the plains from the light breeze.  None of this could alleviate the pain that the boy had been subject to.  Nothing would help in this case.  No amount of mischief or humor would prove useful to him now.  His longsword dragging on the ground forming a cut line, it seemed too large for his small form to wield.  Yet, it was bloodied, and worn.  Who, then, had used it?  Could this child possibly have had enough strength to cut a person?  His hair looking as if it had been soaked the previous day, then drying in the place it was, draped over his eyes.  His jaw was firmly set, and he had a small trail of dry blood from the right corner of his mouth to his chin.  His leather boots and black pants caked in dry mud.  His cloak slightly shredded was trailing behind him.  He

I'm not looking to reinvent myself or turn my life around. I am looking to rejuvenate my creativity and energy. These aren't New Year goals or resolutions, these are lifelong guidelines I'm trying to stick to and form into habit.

By that I mean, don't simply sit there and do nothing. If I am watching tv or simply bored pull out some paper and pencils and sketch something... anything. I saw a notebook at Barnes and Noble last week that I thought was a good idea and may steal the premise: it gives you a word, you sketch something related to that word.
Or just pull up to the computer and write something... Anything. OR program something or learn something or... Anything. Just don't sit there.

Relaxation is fine. However, there is no need to be inactive to relax. Ride the bike, take up archery, work on your car, clean your computer, take a walk through a park, have a conversation. I've wasted too much time doing nothing over the last 10 years. I'd like to do things. Biking is very relaxing for me. I use a mountain bike for road and trail. My wife, a friend, and I recently started archery.

This is pretty self explanatory. I cut out soda and most sweets. Looking to get my portions down. I lhave imited my fast food consumption, but I can do better.

Oooooh, the bit R! Responsibility. I'm old enough to know what I should be doing, and young enough to think it's not important... But wise enough to know that's wrong. DMV? Gotta do that... Bank business? Gotta do that... Health Insurance? Need that. Birthdays, anniversaries, important dates? Need to remember those, or at least keep track of them.

Alright, I'm done for now. I know the first two seem like repeats, but I think they are separate. I'm not trying to tell anyone to do these things, this is for me.

Also: it's been a long time and "Hi everybody!"
