I recently finished "The Princes of Ireland" by Edward Rutherford, the first of two volumes in "The Dublin Saga"---meticulously researched historical fiction.

At present, am almost to the end of "The Little Stranger" a novel by Sarah Waters. Setting is Britain in the 1940s, aristocratic houses, families crumbling, throw in some hauntings----she's very good at building suspense.

Next, for upcoming book club discussion, is "His Bloody Project" by Graeme Macrae Burnet---my first foray into reading a book on a Kindle! What's the world coming to~ hahaha

Ahhh...THE LAST CAB RIDE STORY posted long time ago by Me, myself and I.
Thinking on posting it in my profile.

True about the last thought of that story.

PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID.
BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.

So true. IMO we need to evaluate, why we feel how we feel. When we feel bad around a person, was it because we were called out on the truth- that we became uncomfortable, or because the caller out was inappropriate?

And when we feel good around a person, is it bec. the person was authentic to us, or were they just enabling us?

Penny Ante, I wish I could email you, but there are age restrictions in this site. I find you a person about growth and change.

Candy. They have allowed me to post my blog link before with my poetry. That will link you to a profile with an email contact. I wish the restrictions weren't here for age. I think the range is 14 or 17 years. I am not sure. Years ago you could contact woman or men and there wasn't any age restriction and did not have to be about sexual preference.

Here is my blog post with my poetry. Words Without Songs
http://voodoosevenfold.blogspot.com/

On TOPIC: I am currently reading a children's book:

The Trees Stand Shining
Poetry of the North American Indians
Selected by Hettie Jones
Paintings by Robert Andrew Parker

Most of the poems were songs passed down from ages and ages of ancestors of the Native Americans.
The book includes tribes from the East Coast across country to the West. Chippewa, Papago, Acoma, Cheyene, Sioux, Comanche, Apache and more.

one of the poems:

The eagle speaks

The sun's rays
Lie along my wings
And stretch beyond their tips

A little gray whirlwind
Is trying to catch me.
Across my path
It keeps whiling

Papago

going out on a limb and guess the above isn't a quote from: "How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack"

with the current environment i'm re-reading The Handmaid's Tale - who can't relate these days to speculative fiction

"a totalitarian theocracy which has overthrown the United States government, the dystopian novel explores themes of women in subjugation . . ."

^^^I read that book in 1985. I think it was when it was first published. I still remember some most disturbing passages when Offred her slave name meaning of Fred, belonging to him was taken by his wife who was barren and the horror of the rape scene as they used her as "the two legged womb". That book bothered me for months and months after I read it.
I was actually just thinking of the book because one of our Lenten songs at church is "There is a balm in Gilead". I won't say more as you are reading and I don't want to spoil any of it for you but 32 years later I remember that book like I read it last week.

I just read the Gingerbread man to a group of 15 three year old children. I have a collection of over 2000 children's books, collected over 20 plus years of teaching. I love the history of some of the fairy tales too.. although some of them are gruesome.
