The message from the stars was finally decoded:
"Where are you? We miss you."
After a long debate, we sent a reply.
"Are you talking to us?"
After years of waiting, a response came.
"No."
Our hearts sank. Then, after a week, another message.
"Do you want to talk?"
Then:
"Please?"

After the sword drawn from the stone broke, Merlin brought the young king to a nearby lake.
"Take this boat and row out to the middle."
As Arthur did so, a woman's arm, clad in pure shimmering samite, broke the surface.
The hand held a pen.
"Try using that instead," Merlin said.

Two days ago I got my booster dose; after two Pfizer shots I opted for a Moderna one.

The injection point began to feel slightly sore after 12 hours, and remained that way for 24 hours (Pfizer - 4 hrs after the shot and for 24 hours as well). The sore area was double in diameter (cca 10 cm) but about half in intensity compared to the Pfizer shots.

Overall, I'm one happy camper.*

* Well, apart from the fact that I'm still waiting to get that 5G everybody's been raving about. :)

Went to spend Christmas with my parents and, after a long time, we finally had a white Christmas - it was foggy the whole day. :) Damp and wet also...

Dabin released a new album - Between Broken - two days ago and I just listened through it.

The standout track for me is named Komorebi, a name that perfectly suites it.

Komorebi is an untranslatable japanese word that captures the effects of the sunlight streaming throught the trees, the dance of the shadows on the ground - the beautiful interplay of light and dark caused by the sun, wind and trees.

"You have won the release of her soul," the God of Death said. "I will give her a hale body, clothes and provisions. Where should I say she can find you, should she wish to?"
"What? She must come with me."
"Why?"
"I did this for her!"
"That was your choice. Her choices are hers."
