Kie's Place

When Anastasia asked me to do this post, I was really honored. But, I'm just not sure what my favorite place would be to spend my free time.

My first instinct is to say the elite Headquarters. I love the stone building and our bunk. The team all together, talking (well aruging). But even the banter there makes me feel good and safe - everything is normal. The common room is comfy and cozy in dark, calming colors. Plenty to read and do at headquarters so I am never bored. Training, fighting, reading, etc.

But, I'm pretty sure you guys don't want to hear me ramble needlessly through this post about headquarters and why I love living there. As it is, we spend a lot of our free time there anyway, since we do live there, but I'm pretty sure that is not what Anastasia wants me to talk about.

So, besides headquarters, what is my favorite place to spend my free time?

After thinking about it a while, I'll have to stick with headquarters, but perhaps more specific - the archery range. No matter how bad I feel, I can always go there, fire a couple of shots, and instantly feel better. (Besides, more practice couldn't hurt right?) Even if it's windy or raining, I enjoy being outside with my bow and the targets as my only company. The quiet - no people, no commands, no mission - just me with my thoughts. It calms me like nothing else. I love it.


  1. Sounds like a great place to me. Wish I had an archery range to go to more than once every 5 years. And nothing wrong with telling us about the headquarters if that is where you spend your time and you really do enjoy it. :-)

  2. I do enjoy it! But you know Anastasia, so finicky about these posts. Anastasia loves archery too but hasn't been able to be at a range in many years. So, she lives vicariously through me I guess! *laugh*


  3. I too wish I had an archery range near by! I'd take lessons. Something about bows and arrows... I don't know. It's just so much cooler to fire and arrow than a gun. LOL.

  4. I'm not the best, but I can hit the side of a barn. :D You're one talented, Kie.

  5. Kie: Thanks ladies! I love archery. There is something graceful and almost artistic about it. Poetic. I wish I could give you all lessons! It would great fun.
