Hi Aubrey - this is your Laurel. I have immense confidence in your research.
The other matter is between you and Maggie.
To all our friends in Bryn Gwlad, Sir Galen and I have decided that
discretion is the better part of valor and will be staying at home this
weekend. Regrets to all; I'm sure it would have been great.
As to the awards/recognition for research: I got my Laurel for research,
albeit in another kingdom. In a perfect world, every arts award would be at
least partially for research, because in recreation activities, research is a
very basic component.
When I am attempting to evaluate a candidate (and please note that I am
speaking for myself only, not "the Laurels"), I find that I can't evaluate
someone's work without at least partially considering their research. By way
of example, even a technically excellent seamstress will not "get it right"
if she has not done research into how a garment was actually constructed or
cannot at least present an educated guess.
While "research" and "authenticity" are not the same things, they do have a
Everyone be safe this weekend.
