New friend.

Hello friends :-)


Sorry I haven't written lately, but I have been busy with a new comer.

He left his village in search of an adventure and maybe a new life. He showed up in ours about a week ago. He is a very nice male only a few years older then myself. All the single females want him to be them. My Mother said I should try and get his attention. At first I didn't want too because I'm not ready to settle down with a mate. But he found me in the woods, and wanted to know what I was doing. Well we got to talking and he seemed interested in the fact I know how to write and speak basic. He asked me to teach him, so I agreed. Now we are good friends.

We spend all the day light hours together. And I think all the females are jealous because of this. I keep on telling them we are only frinds and that I'm not intrested in him in that way. Plus he told me he too is not ready to settle down. He likes the adventureous life.

Here is a picture of us.




I hope you all understand if I don't write that much. I'll try and write when ever I have time. But I am busy with my new friend.

A heart to heart with my mother.

Hello friends :-)

Well, my Mother LOVED the present I made for her. She said she is never going to take it off. And I think she is starting to like the idea of me being really smart.

She had asked me how I learned to make such a beautiful necklace. I told her I learned from a book. At first she just laughed, so I showed her the book.

After that we had a really long talk. I told her how much I wanted to see other planets. But she is worried that if I leave something bad might happen to me. I told her not all outsiders are mean, most are friendly. She understands my dreams, she says I'm a lot like my father. He was full of adventure and wanted to experience new stuff. This is why she fell in love with him, but it was also this adventurous spirit that got him killed.

She knows she won't be able to stop me if I wanted to leave. She then started to cry. That made me sad, so I promised her wouldn't leave any time soon. But we did make an agreement. She is going to cut my chores, giving me more time to my studies. She wants to know what I do everyday, and she promises she will be understanding of it. I promised her I'll stay home, at least until she is ready to let go. I also have to make her more jewelry.

I really like the idea of being able to talk to her now. Before I was to afraid to tell her of my accomplishments. Now when I show her she is happy and or impressed. It is nice to have a Mother who cares, now.

Ohhhhh by the way. The party was really great. Or at least from what I can remember. Apparently I had a little to much to drink and passed out while dancing. And lets just say I wasn't feeling real good the following couple of day...... But it was still a lot of fun.

A special present.

Hello friends :-)


My Mother's birthday is coming up in a couple days. And we have been getting ready for the party. You see it is tradition in Ewok society that when it is someone's birthday, we hold a village wide celebration. These celebrations are a lot of fun. There is a lot of good food, and music to dance to. We stay up late and listen to the elders tell stories of their youth. This is the one time I enjoy being here.

It is also tradition that each member of the village gives her/him something. It can be anything from fruits or dried meats, that will be eaten that night, to small tokens, like a colorful rock or shell.

I have been working really hard on a special present for her:






I have worked really hard on it. I spent weeks looking for special stones and other small trinkets to add to it. I even carved a few stones to resemble the animals that live here in the forest and river.

Do you think she will like it?

I'm happy

Hello outsiders :-)
I am so happy, I have finally made contact with the outsiders. And to my surprise there seems to be a lot of different types. A lot more then I knew about.

I told my Mother about this and she was not happy with me. She keeps on telling me that I don't belong out there, I belong here. Here in the village with my friends and family.

First of all I had to remind her that I didn't really have any friends here in the village. She said it was because I always have my head in books and stuff. Then I asked her about Uncle Kip. He is the only one that supports me and my studies. My Mother said Kip has been crazy ever since he fell out of a tree and banged his head. I don't think he is...... He always tell me to reach for my dreams, and to not let others pull me back.

My dream is to be the first Ewok to explore the galaxy. And that is a very far reach for someone my size.




Well I better be heading back home. It will be getting dark soon and I have to be home before dark....... It is the only rule I follow with out a complaint.

Hello

Hello there outside world:-)

My name is Emma, and yes I am an Ewok.





I live in a village in the forest.



It's not a bad place to live. But I don't seem to fit in here. I've never been into the gathering that us females have to do while the males are out hunting. And I really hate getting my fur dirty.

When I was younger I would look up at the stars and wonder if there was anything else out there. Then when I got older I seen my first outsider. At first I was scared, thinking it was a monster. I mean they looked a lot like the huge monsters in white armor that would come around and make terrible noises. I fear those creatures to this day. But these outsiders are different, they are quite and never bother us. I sit up in the trees and watch them and listen to their stories. I long to go with them when they leave in their flying ships.

It was through these outsiders I learned to read, speak the basic language, and most important I learned that there is a whole galaxy full of planets. Planets with huge cities, and oceans, and mountains.

*sigh*

I would give anything to see these sites in real life and not in a picture in some book.

But hey I'm an Ewok..... and as my friends and family say I should get my head out of the stars and start acting like a Ewok.
