As I type this, Halloween is ending. It is a cold, rainy/snowy evening for the kids to Trick or Treat in. I am snug and warm in our apartment. Early in the year, we sold our house. It was a crazy 9 month selling process. Halloween (our favorite time of year) was not celebrated. We didn't do any of our traditions. This year I made a list. A list of what orchards to hit, where to get donuts..etc. I think we managed to get through 60% of the list.
My wife and I work at the same p
This is my favorite piece of artwork in the world. It was created by Dan dos Santos. He's a wonderful cover artist. He did all the covers to Firefly: leaves on the wind. The works of Patricia Briggs, Diana Rowland and Jim Butcher have all had covers he has provided. I want this as a Giclee. BUT, the price is $350.00! Ah! This was used as the cover to the newer paperback of Fires of Heaven. He needs a cheaper print. ?
It has been about a year since I have read any of these books. I left off on The Great Hunt. That's where I will continue from. Super-exciting time to be a fan of this series.
SO much has changed in the last year. We sold our house after a prolonged period of it on the market. It has been a challenge to adjust to a smaller place. We work a lot of hours. Any reading I do I cherish. We have a plant shutdown soon. Can't wait for a vacation. In less than a year we should be
I am really digging Dragonmount's new look. Well done, Jason! I hope to post more this year. I continue my belated re-read of the series.
Something has been bugging me...How many myrddraal are there running around Randland during The Great Hunt? Hope more information is revealed in the later books. How RJ used the use of rumor to spread information was really outstanding. The frustration the Amyrlin seat must have felt trying to decipher rumor from truth would be immense.
We all want to live in a democratic society. The value of this society is given by its citizens and their behavior. Students are a main part of a democratic society, being the ones who are preparing to be our leaders someday. Let’s see what values a democratic society wants to see in students.
Responsibility Maybe one of the most important values is responsibility. You have to be responsible for your own actions and behaviors. Take care of the environment, resolve opinion differences in a no
National Novel Writing Month has arrived! I tried, oh Light, I tried to do it again this year. But, I decided I am not a novelist. I think I can conjure up some decent imagery when I get running, but the long form escapes me. Investigative reporting is more my bag. I dig interviews and anecdotes on the creation of things. I have thought of writing a book about Robert Jordan. Daunting.
I am giving a New Spring a go. I am supposed to be reading The Great Hunt, it is a small diversion.

I hope that everyone stranded can be rescued in the next few hours and not days. I listen to a Legion of Superheroes comic book podcast called Legion of Substitute Podcasters and the guest host was saying that they have only received half of the rain exp
There are times when we have no choices. In these times, whether it is a job, or a location or a crazy relationship I find sanctuary in books. The pressure and stress can make me feel like a bear with its leg caught in a trap. I would not be able to write in this blog without books. Robert Jordan brought us together. I hope someone can find solace in his words. He writes much clearer and finer than I ever will. The limitations of talent are something I have come to terms with. There ma n
This summer has been pretty rough. Long long hours at work. Lately, I have felt crushed under the weight of it all. My reading has stalled. It is my own fault. I can't seem to focus on things for very long. Can't wait until the autumn is here. Pumpkins and cider. The crispness in the air and that aura of mystery that seems to fall upon even the most familiar places.
Have you found your strength in these stories? I know that I have. I look at Lan and feel inspired. Take the ordeal
Hello, I am Nyx. Well, that is my wolf name. Sorry but I refuse to leak out my actual name, so just call me that for now... Anyway I realized I was a demon wolfkin is when I started drawing the demon symbol on my hand and I started to howl at random times during the night. I got Nyx Eclipse for my name because, first, I love solar eclipses. They happen so fast for me. And so I made the connection that I am a fast runner, and solar eclipses are fast, so I got Eclipse for my last name. For Nyx, if
