Thank you for reading my clippings about “Being”. The chemo tiredness is cumulative so I will be taking a break from Clippings for a few weeks. I will be back on 20th March blogging at Pure Haiku where I and my guest haiku writers will be exploring the theme of Music…

Feel very strange but peaceful. Spent most of yesterday writing down all my memories. But not in here. There was some paper on the desk in my bedroom and I’ve made a kind of envelope for my memories and sealed them inside. It’s weird knowing you live somewhere else but are really alive here.
I want to know where Tygar comes from! But I’ve just signed a contract to help Merlin find Sir Lancelot and put him back to sleep until Arthur returns. I still think that killing the Bad Dragons is the destiny Sama Conn talked about. Oh yes! Piera’s offered to accompany us to find Lancelot. I hope he doesn’t fancy me. It would be cruel to have to deter him as I did Agravaine!
Only a week till Yule apparently. Suppose I’d better write a letter to the parents and then perhaps see about some lunch. And after that I will go and visit Tygar – Piera has told me how to find the stables. I wish that horse could talk!
This is an excerpt from my novel Dragonscale Leggings

cobwebbed lungs, strands flutter in my throat triggering spasm of coughing, grey feeling netting my airways, restricting oxygen, leaching me of energy

I try the hind legs of the skin on for size. Just right as a pair of leggings. I slip the forearms on and feel the skin shrinking to fit my back. How about a dragonscale jacket? What about a dragonscale hat? No. I don’t think so. I try to take the head off but it’s stuck fast. Everything looks a little strange. I think the cave mouth has shrunk.
I breathe deeply and stretch my wings. My wings? I squint over my shoulder. Oh yes. I’ve got wings now. I can fly! Can I? I run a few steps and leap into the air beating my wings up and down. Shells! I’m flying! This is amazing. I’ve always wanted to do this. Up and down go my wings and I’m surging through the air. This is brilliant. I could go anywhere.
I glance down to see if I can find the path I followed yesterday. Bad move. Forgot I don’t like heights…
