Dear Patrons,

I first have to apologize for the tardiness for this update. There had been plenty of challenges that had afflicted yours truly this past month of which the main issue is of an unexpected bout with a virus that set me back a while, not to mention, not being able to dwell in that headspace of storytelling right now due to the fatigue of managing this all. From being utterly discouraged upon finding out that a large stash of my hard work had been pirated, the current more fractious state of affairs in the world which does affect business, to the affects of having not yet recovered from being deplatformed/censored by Tw*tter, P*ypal & P*treon and the clunky aftermath of the manner of how I update with suck a lot of manpower from me, all these tribulations had made a strong effort to push my endeavours and almost enough to make me think of hanging up my pen and seek another career path which is why more than ever I rely on you, my current subscribers, the Discord community, you're helping me hang on to this very unexpected hobby turned small industry.

I am not a fan of complaining, but these problems are real. The dark machinations of Ahriman and Lucifer are indeed in full swing. That cozy corner of diving into these stories does feel like a faraway kingdom and I now know how authors feel when they are constantly pulled back into the real world instead of cultivating their garden of stories of the world they built.

On another news, I may start phasing out the $8 per month ACOLYTE level soon and just focus on the DISCIPLE tiers and above as the membership at this level isn't many and it's taking up more time than it's worth maintaining. Just wanted to give members a heads up on this.

I'll keep on going as best that I can as hopefully matter will improve in the future, find that sweet spot where I can work on these stories again with my usual vigor but for now, again, apologies as today's update is mostly art for now based on a loose theme, which is the art of "carrying" as I continue to "carry on". Bon appétit!
