I am Carol J. Bell Cannon and I copycatalog books for the University of
California, Davis Library...and have for a long time.
I am also Grannia [any other part of my name will eventually find me,
but it hasn't yet <smile>, so I'm still sobriquetless]. Master Ioseph of
Locksley is instructing me in the arts, for which I am most grateful and
feel highly honored. We have only just begun, so I have a very long way
to go before I am called anything other than a dabbler in the arts. I
will attempt to learn anything Master Ioseph sets me to--and only he
knows what that may be. Being in such august company, I shall likely do more
reading than contributing, though I am not shy of expressing my opinions.
A good place to begin with that latter is: a 'bardic' path. We
already have such a path--the Laurel, which, IMHO, is sufficient. The
rest must come from inside one and no outward incentive is as motivating
to me as my own need to write/&c.
Well met. It is good to see such a gathering.--Grannia
