Old age is catching up to Humphrey and his friends. He feels it in his bones and with his son and heir having reached the prime of his life, it could very well be time to pass the baton of rule to Daniel. With the Valley Kingdom of Torahn at Peace, that would not be a terrible thing to do. Though breaking his decision to his wife Gwendolyn, the Queen, might be the hardest battle that he ever would fight.
Even as the life of retirement looks to be attractive and possi-ble, however, the Valley Kingdom is beset again. Not Goblins, Trolls, Giants or Men, this time. No. That Humphrey knew would be far too easy. Those obstacles had been overcome be-fore and the problems they presented had solutions that the army of Torahn was trained to deal with.
No, of all the creatures that came forth from Teantellen that they had beaten, the one they had never faced now came forth. Dragons!
Who in the realm knew how to fight these mythical beasts? Was there even away to do so? Now Humphrey who had thought to spend the remainder of his days quietly writing his memoirs and drinking, was faced with the greatest challenge he had ever known.

This is great. I'm only new at blogging and I've only got two comments so far, one just yesterday from someone who is regarded somewhat of a master in the copywriting world. It really did make me feel great to be noticed by someone I look up to. I foten don't comment because I feel I have little to offer, but after having read this, I can see a value that I didn't know existed. So thank you for some great tips. I learnt something new today! :)

Good article, but you have to be careful who you hang out with.
If you hang out with people who are too negative, whilst you may grow spiritually (i.e. learning how to practice midfulness near them so they don't infulence you too much), you won't be growing too much as a person, as some of your energy is being sucked away (in my experience).
But I do agree that some contrast in personalities is useful for general growth and learning to appreciate differences.
Thanks for posting

In relation to measuring other people with the standards by which we measure ourselves, this is something I am learning to change. I actually did the Myers-Briggs personality test and came up INFJ, and realised that my own take on the world is indeed a very unique one. This was a great read, thank you.

It was. I learned a lot about vegan food... and why it is the way it is. I found out what I don't like .. and since I won't give up meat... (or eggs or cheese), I know what works for me. They did have good meals. I would suggest to someone who likes meat and animal products to be willing to zip up the flavor with salsa and spaghetti sauce.

I had this problem with one of mine. The other would never take shoes off. His doc wrote a prescription for all doctor's visits so the nurses didn't try to make him remove his shoes at the weigh ins.
