Has there been any updates at all today? I really wish I lived closer so that I could go pay her a visit. She has my continued prayers.

Healing thoughts are being sent out for Jasta. I am glad to hear she had company today and that KK visited her last week. Tell her we are thinking of her.

Wow, Shiral! That is fantastic. Love the east end and the side additions. I can not wait to see it with the roof additions.

Hi all!

a friend visited with Sharon this afternoon. And is reporting that she is doing okay and is rather bored. She ate some dinner tonight as well as having Ensure (strawberry is her preferred flavor) & regular lemonade (not at the same time.)

She would love company and she said it was okay to let people know on FB etc that is is in hospital.

Also Wednesday is Sharon's doctor appt - The nurses & they said it if Sharon says it is ok, then non family can attend the meeting.

More Cathedral Progress, today. I added the lower walls along the sides and the eastern end, and the five semi-circular chapels. Next phase will be roofing.
The Chronicles of the Deryni / Re: Hamilton and Randolph- Working for Morgan

I agree with all Laurna has said.

In addition I don't really believe Morgan in what he tells Derry. I get the impression that he really wants Derry to work for him, but wants it to be because he is a man Derry wants to be with not because it is an easy job or just a way of improving the financial position of Derry's earldom. I think that Derry is the young brother Morgan never had, or perhaps the cousin he lost when Duncan went into the priesthood. Quite clearly there is genuine affection between the two and a lot of stories that had probably better not be told once Morgan meets Richenda.

I agree with Laurna that Morgan's people hold him in genuine respect and love- the scene when Richard (not Robert btw) FitzWilliam dies in Morgan's arms aboard ship is testimony to that and utterly heart wrenching. They after all know what he is really like to set against the picture painted by the church. The crops have not failed, nor people died in horrible ways any more than is usual and he is a good and kindly Lord. Even the rebel soldier whom Morgan and Duncan heal at the beginning of HD is a rather reluctant critic.

The hostility to Richenda in Coroth is not because she is the wife of a traitor but because it is feared she will use Brendan to supplant Morgan's rightful heirs - exacerbated when her first child with Morgan is a girl. We are not told whether folk in Coroth know that Richenda is Deryni - if they don't it is even greater evidence for their support for Morgan as Brendan would be assumed to be human and might be supposed to be a welcome end to the Deryni rule in Corwyn.

Great topic Wren.

I really like your thoughts on this subject. Yes, I sincerely believe that Morgan's men in Coroth love their duke.

Some of these positions are hereditary positions, which means the families have been taking care of Corwyn for decades, maybe centuries. Corwyn has always been held by a Deryni Duke, ever since the very first Festil became King. Even before that, the duchy was half of the ancient Mooryn Kingdom which was also ruled by a Deryni family. These positions of city stewards and clerks would have been taught father to son and the loyalties and tolerances of Deryni would have been endowed from father to son over the generations; the same as Kenneth Morgan's loyalties to the Haldanes were passed down to Alaric. These men were also Alaric's regents after his father had passed away and I believe that they were very protective of Alaric from the beginning. It had been two generations since Corwyn had seen a male heir.  In that day and age that was something to be proud of.

As for the Moderate pay, well, I question how moderate it really was. Corwyn was the wealthiest duchy in the kingdom. It is a major port perfectly situated in the center of the eleven kingdoms. A huge trading center. The duchy was able to hold its own as a neutral province for 100 years after the fall of the Festils and the restoration of the Haldanes. It was during the battle of Rengarth that Corwyn was forced to choose a side between Torenth and Gwynedd. Even then, Corwyn held some of its independence. Only at the battle of Killingford did the Deryni Dukes of Corwyn prove their full loyalty to the Haldanes. If and when KK writes the Road to Killingford, I am hopeful that we shall see just how Gwynedd gains this wealthy Deryni duchy's loyalty.

As for Randolph, I like to think that he and Alaric are best friends, able to work well together. Because Alaric is such a loyal, compassionate Duke it is easy to  see where his physician and his immediate employees are very loyal to him in return.
Alaric's trouble with people seems to stem mostly from Rhemuth. For that I would place blame on the queen and on the Archbishops for their hatred of Deryni and their blindness to seeing who Alaric really is.
