I interrupt my regular silence for a brief post. A musical goodie--"Ballad of the White Seal Maid," written by Jane Yolen and set to music/performed by Lui Collins--reposes beneath the cut for your downloading pleasure, provided you hop to it within the next six days.



"Ballad of the White Seal Maid"



I uploaded the song for some friends following a conversation about selkies in general. Coincidentally, I'd also recently read this Prince of Tennis fanfic: "The Skin of a Seal" by [livejournal.com profile] kish_t_rethya. I recommend it for its wonderful job of capturing both the nature of the PoT characters and the wistful feeling of selkie mythology.

Not much to report about this summer--it's been up and down, busy and not. A few more fandoms have been added to my repertoire, though I haven't worked on fanfic (or other creative writing) in ages. I'm still at the same library branch. My cat continues lovely and marmalade-colored with smidgens of cream. My parents moved into a retirement community, meaning the house I (partly) grew up in has passed from our family. The singing group I'm part of has worked on some glorious songs lately, including an a cappella version of "Love is a Fearsome Thing" by Judy Small.

Lovely song! I'm very glad I did hop to it immediately. ^^

And it's good to hear from you again.

Hiya! Indeed it did. Yamada Tarou rocks. *g* Enjoyed the other things too. Thankee!

I may not make it to Zenkaikon, alas. Let me know, therefore, if you'd like to arrange a Banana Fish pickup sometime earlier than the next meetup!

I very much would, but it'll have to wait until after Zcon. I'll be too busy sewing ^_^;

Hi Sara!

I thought I'd leave a comment here because I wasn't sure whether to add you back or not, so that's why it probably looks funny that I'm writing this several days after replying to you on the other post :3

I realised you don't update your lj very often, so I'm adding you back but I didn't want you to feel obliged to comment/read all the time or anything ^__^

So yup XD That's it. And, rather belatedly, nice to meet you :3

I'm Miki :D
