Llandi's Story - BeginningsLlandi showed promise at a young age, a natural attunement to the way of things and a desperate desire to help others. As was the way of her tribe, she was sadly but proudly given over to the Shamans to begin her training. And so she journeyed with her Master Gilnar; travelling the lands He showed her the secret places of power, taught her of the songs and how to channel the power of Kairos; to aid her people and strike at their enemies. Despite being of an unusually young age when she was inducted into the fold of Shamans she progressed through her training with impressive speed; eager to learn anything and everything that could be of use one day to her people.
In the fullness of time Gilnar returned with Llandi to their tribe, where he continued to train her. One day she would replace him as head Shaman; not that he ever let this intention be known.

Snow-BlindIts that cold terror, the one that sits behind the eyes drawing a vale over all thoughts:
Burying the mind in a blanket of thick white, the weight of it bearing down on head and shoulders, like supporting the ceiling on your crown.
Rendered mute, immobile from the pressure, blinded by the blizzard inside:
Holding onI feel the hard edge of my sanity,
Grip it and hold on with all my might,
At the border of lost and found,
Hands reach over the precipice,
Holding me in place,
The only thing slowing my decent,
Reaching out over formless connection.
I can hear the call,
From both sides of the divide,
To rise or to fall...
I must let go,
Trust the right side take me,
Before I am beyond reach.

Split in two
Neither half is my former self
Nor will they be again
Like a hatchling shell
Split open to void
No germ of potential
No seed of life inside
Forced to piece back together
The jigsaw of being
With misshapen pieces
And mismatched shards
That never were a part of me
Until we split.
