From Journal Entry One - http://intothenanten.com/entry-1

"Twenty years ago Salisir disappeared. Twenty years have passed since he was sent on a mission that would only ever be given to someone in disgrace. Someone the Tetrarch would rather see dead than in its service. And now I am to follow in his footsteps. To my death, I am sent to find him.

This is my punishment. But if nowhere else, I may plead my own case in ink, even as I approach a certain death. I hope against all odds to explain these things to you in person one day. I won’t hold it against you if you have turned your back on me as all others have. But if I am never to see you again, I hope that these words find you. I hope that as I fill out this journal you discover that I died as honorably as I once lived."

There's just too much adorable madness to pass on sharing more of these. Go Cougs!

Also an animation of me in North Dakota and a photo from Ontario looking back at Minnesota - because you know, I'm really confused as to where I've been lately (7 states in 11 days + Canada twice = new personal interstate record).

There are so many random gifs like this in my autoawesome folder that it has truly earned its name.

A seven minute start?! Turns out taking rest days really makes a difference. I'm almost fast.

If you're looking for something fun to read in the #fantasy  genre, feel #free  to do so here (it's totally free, thus the hashtag). With lots of amazing #fantasyillustrations  by +Nimit Malavia and even more words by yours truly.

This is the journal of Marceles na Tetrarch, a warrior currently exiled to the Nanten – a jungle so hostile that to enter it willingly is considered suicide. It is updated in real time (EST) – when he finishes an entry or illustration it appears here in our world, on this blog. He writes almost every evening. If this is your first visit to Marceles’ journal we suggest you start from the beginning, with his first entry, and follow along until you have caught up.

I love digging through Google's auto awesome to see what madness has occurred since I last checked. How about the Tyler Zoo?

I know I'm lucky to be able to just drop in and spend a Saturday with friends on the way through Paris as I return to the States from the Congo. Thankful too.

Fresh into Boston I needed a cut, and this looked like the most popular place around, according to the reviews. They didn't lie. Rocco was friendly and fast, he made me feel truly welcome and shared the story of how his father had been cutting hair in that very space for the past 30 years. It shows, they're great. Don't hesutate to get your hair cut here, I'm 100% satisfied with mine. (they even let me take their photo - on Instagram @jayswanson) It's cash only, just FYI
