On Friendship
 Kahlil Gibran
Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.

When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.

And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Hi, lovely Live Journal hive mind.
I need some suggestions and/or ideas.

A friend who is a SCAdian has a broken arm.  He will be in a forearm cast for at least 6 more weeks (and hopefully ONLY six more weeks).  His tunics won't fit over a cast.

Any suggestions on how to make something that would fit over a cast and be easy to put on/take off?    I think it might cheer him up immensely if there were some kind of reasonable plan so he could be able to go eventing.

haaaallllppp!  :)

 Been a while since I last posted.  Not sure what I have and haven't said, so here's a very quick life update in no particular order.

1)  Been working on wardrobe for Their Majesties Daman and Veronique.  Coronation and Crown Tourney outfits done plus will be working on Pennsic stuff.  Pics soon I promise!

2)  Moved to a new apartment.  Got in here and lost the will to unpack.

3)  Been making a TON of travel plans for this summer.  I have the best hubby ever who has been working his ass off at his job so I can have money for all these trips without him.

4)  Been spending a lot of time contemplating the meaning of friendship and how I implement that in my life.  Spending time with some people getting to know them better, spending some time with friends I have had for a while, and realizing that some people I thought were my friends don't spend nearly as much time and energy on me as I do on them, so I am wondering if they are really my friends or merely acquaintances.  Sometime I will look and see if I have posted a blog here about my bullseye theory as it applies to these things.  If I haven't posted about that I should.

5)  Trying to get a handle on the Kingdom Seneschal job.  Way more intense than I thought, but mostly going OK so far.

Back to my work project with me.  More later.

.....  to Little Miss Ziva Elizabeth Lee, born at 1:50pm on Thursday, January 15, 2009.  She weighed 6 pounds 6 oz., and is 20 inches long.  Mom, Dad, and Baby are all well and all of them are as cute as can be.  Big brother Q man met the baby today, and proclaimed her to be "really red."   She is less red now, and way way way adorable.
