A letter from Kafka, the amphibious secretary at Trail of Lights,
To Esteemed Faithful Readers,
(and to whom it may interest),
Greetings! I trust this letter finds you all in slimy good health. If you have been perusing this blog regularly, you may have noticed there has been an absence of posts in the last week or so. This was due to a number of circumstances which befell the senior editor of Trail of Lights, our own Shannon Elisabeth Morris. Briefly, these circumstances included:
A Bake Sale
Exams and Presentations in College
A funeral for an Aunt who will be dearly missed
Shannon apologizes for her absence, but trusts the faithful remnant of readers will understand.
In the meantime, she asked me, in her stead, to share some of the news and goings on in her life which have so occupied her the past couple weeks. So here follows a much condensed account of happenings in the life of S.M.:
#1 A Haircut
As promised, photos have been provided to the public.
#2 Three Birthdays, respectively
Danny Symes – Shannon’s youngest cousin. He has reached the age of 4 years
Michael Morris- Shannon’s brother- he will reach the age of twenty one on Friday
Shannon Morris – she will reach her birthday on Wednesday, April 26th.
Of course, a family dinner was in order, and birthday cake.
#3 Exams and presentations
Nothing miraculous here. Just a persuasive speech on why humans should eat breakfast, an informative speech on Krav Maga, a biology exam, a sociology exam, and a biology presentation on the properties of Life.
I told Shannon she is doing tolerably. She’s no Sophocles or Aristotle, but she’s doing well for a blonde.
#4 Krav Maga Seminar
Shannon returned home with bruises on her knees, sore muscles that she didn’t even know existed, and a greater knowledge of how to beat up people who try to beat up her. Greetings, fellow Kravs!
#5 A Bake Sale.
That’s all we have to say about the Bake Sale. Shannon never wants to dip a cake ball in chocolate again.
#6 A Funeral for my Aunt
We do not grieve as those who have no hope.
#7 A quiet sunset in the grocery store parking lot
As for Conrad and myself, we have been making use of our vacation time by resting in various ways. We read aloud from Plato’s Republic and Virgil’s Aenid, debated various philosophies, and attempted the modern culture’s method of relaxation – namely, eating junk food and binge watching episodes from Star Trek:
Posts should resume with a Sunday Blues Buster this Saturday, so, to quote Shannon’s quaint colloquialism, ‘stay tuned’.
