      Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.~C.W.Eliot

Like my tastes in music, my reading tastes span the fields. I like SciFi, Fantasy, History, Science, Biography, Mystery, Poetry...and on and on and on...

Some authors that I enjoy: the Bible (especially Psalms and Proverbs), Tolkien, Marion Zimmer Bradley, J.D. Robb, David Weber, Kathleen O'Neal Gear & W.Michael Gear, Tony Hillerman, Sara Douglass, Patricia Briggs, Jules Watson, Sarah Addison Allen, Jim Butcher

Smileycons! She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear
their dwelling place.

And on that cheek,
and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win,
the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
~Lord Byron

Just a Thought:


The thing that is really hard, and really amazing,
is giving up on being perfect
and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

Two roads diverged in a wood,

"A Continuing Journey"

Smileycons!

      According to my mother I've an 'old soul'. That is something with which I have always been comfortable; it just feels right. Happily, this 'old soul' continues to make its journey with a 'young heart', and that makes for quite a trip no matter what turns, bumps, or potholes might be along the way.

Let's see...what else...

  I was born and raised in the Land of Enchantment, USA, and have spent most of my life here.

Very happily married with a son and daughter-in-law, two beautiful grand-daughters, and four 'little' ones - Murphy and her three pups: Mouse, Molly, & Mister.

      My better half is retired Air Force. He is now an Independent Service Technician, and really enjoys his wood shop.

Smileycons!

   I taught Special Education for several years; my greatest enjoyment was working with the severely emotionally disturbed/behavior-disordered.


Smileycons!

      I enjoy spending time with my husband, taking care of my family and home, having fun dabbling in a variety of hobbies, and exploring my spirituality.

I do consider myself to be more of a spiritual person rather than a religious person. I believe God is very much a part of my life and who I am.
I also believe I am a part of all that's around me, a bit of what's been, what is, and what's to come--a little bit of space and time and the universe. We are, after all, "star-stuff".
I welcome the opportunity to learn new things from those I meet, and hope that I offer something new to them.

God is infinite, so His universe must be, too.
Thus is the excellence of God magnified
and the greatness of His kingdom made manifest;
He is glorified not in one,
but in countless suns;
not in a single earth, a single world,
but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.


~Giordana Bruno, 1584, "On the Infinite Universe and Worlds"
[Executed by the Inquisition]

Extremely Angry:

Angry:

-people who believe the world owes them something
