      After talking with Norah again this morning, I can't help but get out the pencils and draw her. She seems so sad, stuck between worlds. We made the decision to start to try and look through the Grimoire to find the spell to restore her and Corax. But something tells me that nothing will work till we defeat Beira. I brought tons and tons of pictures this morning of Aidan and Jenn and the twins for her along with Richard and Gretchen's wedding photos. She was so happy to see her sons living the life she had imagined for them rather than one torn down by cruelty and tragedy. I told her about Aidan's recent behavior and that was the only downside this morning. At first she talked about taking Jenn to the other world to talk to her, like she did me before, but I stressed it was too dangerous. I promised to keep an eye on them and report any more odd behavior.
