I know that life has been extremely busy for me of late and that it seems as if I don’t have time to write as often as I would like, however, duty calls on you to leave the personal things to the side and attend to the things at hand. Can’t say that I am overly fond of the thought of ignoring my family and it is something that I rarely do – just as the Pandaren say, what do you fight for? I am still of the mind that I am fighting for my family, my home and then, for my faction. Family will always come first to me due to my upbringing and how things could have been so different if I hadn’t had the opportunity to grow up with a family that loved me.
I know that I am as guilty as the next man for not thinking before I act sometimes, however, I have learned over the years through my own experience that actions, no matter how trivial, will always have consequences. I know that I have had my hands full with my duties of late and fighting with demons for most of my waking moments, however, there are times when one must call a halt to all that and try to give your life some attention.
Oh, Amyn and I are doing fine, and we are finding time to spend with one another even in the Broken Isles and we aren’t taking as many risks in being exposed as we might have taken when we were younger. We’re both older now and more cautious since we have both of our families to consider and our own children. My eldest son, Kaldor, is here in the Broken Isles as well and I do have some concern for him because he does have the rashness of his Mother and myself that might lead him astray from time to time. Of course, Amyn and I can’t expect to spend as much time with him as we would like which is understandable since he is still acting as Scout for the Sentinels as is his duty – I know he must be missing Kaelendra because she is back in Draenor attending to her duties there.
I will have to admit that I was in hopes that Kal and Kae would have taken their vows already, however, Kal seems to be a bit hesitant with that aspect of his life. He loves the girl and there is no doubt in my mind in that regard, however, he is just biding his time with the formality of it. I’ll be honest, Amyn and I would love to have a grandchild some day soon – there are no guarantees that our bloodline will continue with these constant wars that seem to happen in Azeroth.
With the rumors that are floating around these days, I almost feel like history is going to be repeating itself yet again. I felt like we had finally made some kind of compromise with the Alliance while Varian was still alive, however, with Anduin taking his Father’s place after his untimely demise – I’m not so sure that the uneasy truce we had will last, not with Greymane bending the young fellow’s ear every chance he gets – the hatred that he feels for our current Warchief is not going to be easily appeased. I can understand some of the things that are going on, however, I do wonder if our diplomats aren’t a bit off point with some of the actions that are starting to rear their ugly heads again.
The only peaceful time that I can recall was when I bought the house in Dalaran and lived there for few years. Of course, we had to still fight the scourge and we still had to deal with all the things that were going on in Northrend at the time. The Lich King’s demise couldn’t have happened at a better time as far as I am concerned. Not only were the Death Knights freed from his control, I was freed from my military obligations for a while and that’s when I started my business. Dawnglory and I both spent a great deal of time getting the business going and Amyn did her part as well. It was a time of peace for all of us – not long lasting, mind you, however, it was a peace that we had never known. Looking at how things have turned out, I was in the right place at the right time to build my alternative lifestyle with my love and with my business.
I know that Dawnglory is happy to have his family back with him and I know the rest of us are relieved. I don’t think that I have ever seen the poor fellow so devastated during the whole time they were missing. Yes, everyone that knew him was worried that he might not make it if we couldn’t find his family. I know exactly how he feels too because I’ve experienced similar things and I sometimes wondered if life was worth living without my loved ones.
Ah well, I suppose I ought to just stop here for a while and get back to the business at hand and start getting back into a routine of sorts. These demons are slowly dwindling down, and I wonder if we will ever be able to cleanse Azeroth of them.
