Subj: A tale by the fireside

Salutations to all those who have ears of any shape and/or size.
I write warmly to everyone who wishes to listen- as I recant a tale that comes to mind.

A very long time ago, I- as well as others- were graced to have friends within Elvandar- And those there had friends in us.

It was a beautiful thing. There were no demands placed upon each other. We helped out of a desire to help rather than duty- and as such, no resentment was expressed. Many times, I was surprised and pleased to see our friends appear- We did not need to ask- and in a desire to express our gratitude, we would do the same.

You need not have an alliance to have a friend; merely the time to listen without making judgments upon differences of opinions. You do not need paper to lend a hand; nor is that which is written with spite in mind liable to benefit its writer or audience in the long term.

I am just now dreaming of a fire, with friends and food gathered about it. Perhaps there are others that might share in it. I will make that fire one day. You will be welcome to join me.
