Wounded War­rior Project – Arti­san Dice
A few months back I was con­tacted by a gen­tle­man with a unique request. A friend of his had been seri­ously wounded in Afghanistan. This gen­tle­man had a broke piece of Antique Ivory that belonged to his grand­fa­ther and wanted to know if I could use it to make a cou­ple of twenty sided dice …

Impossible Things – 6.13.14


1. Death by hug­ging. Though some might wish for death…
2. Being impaled by a piece of licorice.

  1. A Moon with self-​​esteem issues. (via +Crys­tal Black )

  2. Road paved with chocolate¹.

5. Synchronized swim­ming butterflys

  1. Aster­oids that stare long­ingly at comets.

¹ You know, for some­one that doesn’t like choco­late, I men­tion it a lot. ;)

Impossible Things – 6.10.14


1. Hive build­ing, honey pro­duc­ing, pollen steal­ing, rab­bits.

2. Pre­ci­sion march­ing cen­tipedes.

3. Choco­late fla­vored moon beams.¹

4. Cater­pil­lar rac­ing events.

5. Sesame fla­vored  naval wes­sels.

7. Sta­tis­ti­cally invalid drag­ons. Because one dragon is sta­tis­ti­cally valid. Espe­cially when he or she is pissed. Or guard­ing gold. Two things that aren't always dis­tin­guish­able from each other.


¹ I'm not a fan of choco­late. I wouldn't say I hate it, but I def­i­nitely keep my eye out for it. That way I can know where it is in order to avoid it.


I came across this snip­pet while dig­ging through notes. For­got about it: Kenan stood with his hands clasped behind his back, the white robe that sig­ni­fied his sta­tus as a Mas­ter flut­ter­ing gen­tly in the slight breeze. “How many totems do you have with you today?” asked Kenan. “I have four, two for Earth, one each for Air and Water,” replied Alisa. “No Fire?” “Sorry Mas­ter,” Alisa looked away, “I’m still not ready to work with fire again.” “Under­stand­able. How are you heal­ing?” Alisa pulled up her left sleeve, rev­el­ing a road map of scars that started just above the wrist and con­tinue up passed the raised sleeve. Kenan walked over and exam­ined her arm, his hand hov­er­ing just above the skin, “You will even­tu­ally have to prac­tice with fire again, you know this cor­rect?” “Yes,” she replied as she low­ered her eyes. “It’s okay Alisa. There is noth­ing to be ashamed of. It was an acci­dent, noth­ing more. Granted you were try­ing some­thing beyond your abil­ity, but that is how we grow and learn. How­ever you must promise me to never try some­thing like that with­out me again. Espe­cially with Fire, it is extremely dan­ger­ous.” “I promise.” “Good,” smiled Kenan as he stepped back and sat on a stump, “Now, what would you like to prac­tice today? Lev­i­ta­tion per­haps?” Alisa couldn’t pre­vent the grin that erupted across her face, “Oh yes please!” Kenan crossed his legs under his robe, care­fully arrang­ing the folds so that his san­daled feet shown below the flow­ing white hem, “Very well. Please take out one of your Earth totems.” Alisa paused, “Earth? Why wouldn’t I use Air?” Kenan smiled again, “I assume you are plan­ning to attempt to make your­self lighter than air?” he asked as Alisa nod­ded, “You know that is impos­si­ble. Have you been study­ing your sci­ences?” “Yes sir,” Alisa replied. “Then you know that since you have weight and mass, and that nei­ther can be reduced to near zero you can­not make your­self lighter than air.” “But Nessi was able to lev­i­tate using her Air totem.” “I imag­ine she was. It is pos­si­ble to gain some height but using Earth will give you more and allow you more con­trol. Now, take hold of the Earth and Air totems. Using Earth ‘push’ your­self away from the ground.” Alisa reached into her satchel and took out 2 of the objects within, plac­ing one in each hand. She uncon­sciously rubbed each with her thumbs think­ing about the power held within. Her totems were wood, the sim­plest and least power of the totemic objects. They were also the cheap­est. She dreamed occa­sion­ally of own­ing a glass of metal totem. How­ever she wasn’t any­where near ready for that. As it was she was only able to use a small per­cent­age of her totems stor­age capac­ity. Clos­ing her eyes she con­cen­trated on push­ing her­self away from the earth. At first the idea evaded her, how did one ‘push’ them self away from the ground? Then she imag­ined her­self jump­ing with­out actu­ally flex­ing her legs and she began to rise. She raised her arms out to her size to help bal­ance as she rose higher. “Very good,” clapped Kenan, “very good indeed!” Alisa opened her eyes and saw Kenan stand­ing and clap­ping slowly while smil­ing. She was grate­ful, not for the first time, that her teacher was an Ini­ti­ate, that he had under­gone the graft­ing process and was a now a nat­ural user of magic. He made his lessons more mean­ing­ful. It was true that totemic magic was the more nat­ural way of using the power but the basic under­stand­ing of how it all worked wasn’t there. It had to be learned through trial and error. A process that had given her the scars that wove their way up her left arm. Scars that would even­tu­ally heal on the out­side, but might never heal on the inside, no mat­ter how much she, or Mas­ter Kenan, wanted them to.
