I'm now alternating between the Chichester area of Sussex (both in the present day and during WW2), and also Venice.

Pi-Ramesses in ancient Egypt dealing with a pesky Hebrew named Ahmoses. Also taking on a WPA writing assignment in a small town in West Virginia. I'm a busy girl. ;)

12th century England.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}
