My great friend Lyssa Medana returned from a family holiday yesterday with a gift for me - a rather splendid mug sporting a rather splendid raven. She knows I have a fondness for corvidae.
If anyone reading this hasn't checked out Lyssa's blog yet, they really should. She's a fantastic writer with a great take on the fantastic and magical, yet always managing to ground things in realistic and well observed characters. The link to her blog is here so treat yourself and go take a look.
