Subject: QOTD for Saturday 27 January 2024

I had to end the week with a little bit of J&C intimacy:

The following quote is from Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 131, “Thunderstorms On the Ridge,’ Copyright 2021 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“I wasn’t sure whether the adrenaline of battle just didn’t diffuse immediately, the recent nearness of death inducing a strong need to reproduce – or whether the desire for sex merely expressed a need to reassure oneself that one was still alive and in reasonable working order. Regardless, I had to admit that it had a settling effect.
I shook and patted myself back into some sort of order, looked at my reflection in the glass, then shook my head, and wound my hair up into a makeshift bun, precariously fastened by a couple of quills stolen from Jamie’s desk as I passed the study, I could hear voices in the kitchen, and one of them was Ian’s, which lifted my heart.
He and Totis were sitting at the table, eating bread and honey, conversing with Fanny and Agnes in a mélange of languages: I recognized English, Gaelic, and what I assumed to be Mohawk, plus a few words of French and a certain amount of sign language regarding food.

I love all the blended family interactions in Bees. Happy Weekend and I'll see you again next week!
