Spent a good deal of time hibernating on weekends – mostly recovering from a
flurry of activities at work and outside of work. Perhaps that’s the reason for the bear subject appearing in my fanart drawings recently. Another word that popped up today, hellion. I first thought that word would aptly describe the character Jaime in A Song of Ice and Fire but the more I thought about it, how we learned more about his character thru his POV in later books, the more I changed my mind.
