I have been told by a dear friend that keeping a journal helps to keep things in perspective; allow us to review our thoughts at a later time after we have the benefit of hindsight.
I wonder why that is. I suppose I will find out. It makes sense, in a way. It's not as though you can corrupt a thought process already inked into paper. Although, I suppose a magician could, if they were so inclined. Perhaps it's difficult, if it can be done.
I'm getting away from myself. But, I am afraid that I have precious little to report.
Confessional was slow. Only the one speaker. It's to be expected. My people aren't religious as a rule. I'm an outlier, statistically. Even so, it is disheartening. I don't expect to have lines of people waiting to be heard. It would be the height of arrogance and unrealistic, to boot. Where would one find all the hours in the day to hear out so many people?
Perhaps I could also take it as a sign that my companions and comrades are mostly at peace with themselves. Or perhaps they see no point in confiding in me, a relative stranger (and a strange individual, from their perspective, to boot).
I shouldn't have such a grim outlook. It's not proper for a confessor.
I was asked to join an expedition to New Hearthglen by a paladin named Pierce. I respect his courage, and I do want to see Hearthglen...but I fear I will not have the time. There are things to which I must attend. I will expound on them next time...assuming they work as planned.
