Scribe's note: please disregard previous update "Family Portraits." 

It is my privilege to introduce my family to you. The woman on my left in this portrait is my wife Elizabeth, and to her left is our daughter Abigail, who recently turned fourteen and is considering an apprenticeship with me. Off to our right is my son Joel, who disappeared four years ago and has not been seen since. We know he is not dead, but his rose has turned grey; I fear he has fallen into darkness.

Four-Formed Note

Thorn and petal
the breath rises, falls--gasps!
second voice unfolds
now exhale
--direct transcription of traditional Roni'ith song

Sharps and flats
The songs bends and twists
Tune the instrument
before the song begins
--culturally-accurate translation

Change is the tuning-string before the performance
--Roni'ith proverb

Scribe's note
Between classes today,  I've pruned certain elements from my story. The town of Naveyl is undergoing time alteration and Micah is experiencing incompatible memory disorder. With an open weekend ahead, I hope to clarify the situation by Monday.
