I'm a strange person that never quite fit in, and still does not. I've stumbled into wins and fallen into losses, both of which have shaped my path.
The Food of Summer
Without a doubt, the perfect food of summer is the veggie burger; it’s just the thing when the casual picnics of spring give way to the sizzling cookouts of summer. This change in seasons means hot nights, cool swimming in the family pool, coconut-scented sunscreen, weekend that feel like they go on for months, and all watched over by the scorching sun, tempered by a gentle breeze pushing the windchimes, smell of cut grass hanging in the air.
The Hunter of Treagough
There weren't always dragons in the Valley. Legend tells that the first of them came with the Morbock raiders. In the last thousand years, they had completely overtaken the fertile lands below the Graumsturn Mountains, which stood like sentinels above the plains of wheat and sorghum; once a blockade against the horrors of the wide world beyond, they now served as an obstacle, a reminder that any attempt to leave the Valley of Treagough would surely end in failure. It was in these mountains that the dragons nested and passing through them meant certain death.
