I was just reading over some of last year's faire entries, and I am suddenly aching - and I do mean there is a physical pain round about my heart - to be jousting. And fighting. And just - there.

I want my Oso. I want my friends from whom I am now so remote, geographically. (I love my house, but...) I want to hang at the tack house after a hard day's rehearsal, talking training with the guys. I even want to be worrying over whether I'm strong enough, good enough, skilled enough to do this. I want summer. I want heat and the dust of the field clogging my nostrils. I want sudden cloudbursts. I want to walk the list until it feels as if my arms will fall off from holding that damned car door shield and heavy lance. I want to feel strong. Skilled. Smart.

I want fireflies dancing over the chessboard at dusk. I want the prickly sensation of sweat drying on the back of my neck and arms. I want to watch the horses rolling in the paddock after their baths. I want a decided LACK OF GOAT while this happens. I want the scent of leather cleaner and the glint of polished metal.

I want heroes. I want magic. I want...
I feel: nostalgicnostalgic

No 'poor Huzzah.' If you've ever had his horns jammed into your nether regions, or the back of your knee, or had him rear up at you as you, oh, I don't know, tried to tack your horse or get to your car.... well, you'd be feeling very little sympathy.

I'm just sayin'.

Hehe I was being facetious...

Bet Lars doesn't miss chasing his flower-chewing arse all over the shire.

Ah, You know, time goes by pretty fast really. And in no time at all there will be meetings, then auditions and then rehearsals.
You'll see.....

hmmm... so does all this missing....
mean that mayhaps the evil rumours of your "retirement" will not live up to their potential??

A spark of hope for your loving audience is a great thing :)
