I have been
thinking
only about you

how when
you speak
the air slows

before
the music
of your voice and blows

gently
round

my head
then passes through.

Garrison Kelly Garrison Kelly's blog:
You’ve probably seen my posts for Devon Spirit Wolf and Constance Cable and are wondering why I have a fascination with female MMA referees. You’re already wondering if Cheryl Glenn will join the club and you’d be right in thinking so. Referees and females have something in common: they don’t get... Read more of this blog post »

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving — Enjoy the food, but enjoy the company of family and friends even more!

And, with Christmas just around the corner, it's time to start thinking of what to buy for those family members and friends.

So, somehow on the inside of the ebook, I accidentally copied the Designing the Love description. I didn't notice it when I got the book back from the formatter because it said Working On Love on top. Sorry about the confusion!

Also, I wrote the dedication and copied it onto an old version. So, h... Read more of this blog post »

பிள்ளைகளின் சீருடைகளை இஸ்திரிபோட்டுக் கொண்டிருக்கும்போது அருண்மொழி ஒரு நாளும் தவறாமல் கடுமையான கடமையுணர்ச்சியுடன் செய்யும் ஒரு செயல், சாம்பார் விட்ட இட்டிலித்தட்டுகளைக் கொண்டுவந்து அதே மேஜையில் சட்டைகள் படும் தூரத்தில் வைத்துவிட்டு புயலெனத் திரும்பிச்செல்வது.

ആറു കണ്ണുകൾ

രണ്ടു കണ്ണിലും കണ്ണുകൾ,
രണ്ടു കാതിലും കണ്ണുകൾ,
പിന്നിലും രണ്ടു കണ്ണുകൾ.

ആറു കണ്ണും തുറന്നിരിക്കും നാട്ടിൽ
ആറു കണ്ണന്മാരെന്ന അഹങ്കരിക്കും നാട്ടിൽ,
ഒരു നിമിഷം അടക്കണം ആ കണ്ണുകൾ,
ആറായിരം കണ്ണുകളിൻ കാഴ്ചകൾ കാണാൻ.

But the story is about much more than their friendship; the story is about other relationships as well. The families and friends of these characters are woven throughout the ta...

Andrey Kneller Andrey Kneller's blog:
In the soggy woods, a ray
Sows a cool and meager glow.
Sorrow, like a bird of gray,
Is in my heart, I'm walking slow.

Wounded bird, what’s in my power?
The deathly silent sky repels.
From the clouded bell-tower,
Someone’s taken down the bells.

And there it rises up - the height -
Orphaned, mute and in a d... Read more of this blog post »

From 1967 to 1980, Brazil grew at an average annual rate of 5.2 per cent. Few would have predicted, then, that for the next 22 years per capita income would grow at precisely zero.


That is from David Pilling at the FT, who considers China as well. And here is part of the first comment on the arti...

Things are heating up on Reign, as Francis' utter inability to do anything right begins to backfire on him, and Protestants take to the street after making a martyr out of a man Francis refused to make a martyr of.

Wolf’s Lady, After the Crash 6.5

No one can have missed by now that we are living through the centenary years of the Great War, 1914-1918. The production of the play Not About Heroes is timely, of course, but I love that it has also spent the past months touring so many places closely associated with Wilfred Owen: Edinburgh, whe...
