Nora Roberts Nora Roberts's blog:

Not sure what it says about me that I still love April. It holds out its sweet g...

Bütün hayatı neredeyse masa başında geçen, yazmak dışında handiyse yaşamayan ve sosyalleşmeyen biri nasıl anlatılır? Entelektüel biyografi yazmaktan, yazarın yaşadığı dönemi, dönemdaşlarını ve kültürel-edebi bağlamı anlatan bir çalışmadan söz etmiyorum. Marquez gibi kelimelerle oynayan büyük bir...

I appreciate everything you've ever done for me.After our trip to Boston, I was torn between wanting to make every remaining day of Dave’s life an adventure and wanting to give up. Caring for him seemed overwhelming and unmanageable. He was like a man sized two-year-old. Despite the difficulty,... Read more of this blog post »

I've been doing a lot of crafting lately. I haven't shared it and then I asked myself, "Why the hell not?"

So, it's Sunday, and the day was free, and so I've decided to share the projects I have going right now.

First of all, I just finished another clutch. This one is for a friend. When I asked he... Read more of this blog post »

7_2_pillar_fireLord of the cloud and fire,

I am a stranger, with a stranger’s indifference;

My hands hold a pilgrim’s staff,

My march is Zionward,

My eyes are toward the coming of the Lord,

My heart is in Your hands without reserve.

You have created it,

redeemed it,

renewed it,

captured it,

conquered it.

I love You with s...

Mostly because the kid was staying at my sis-in-law’s, and the dog needed walking. (okay, he is in no way used to walking five miles a day, which is the to...

The show was announced at 8 AM and by 10, four hundred people were in line, including me. It wasn’t until almost noon that the press showed up and few cops. A nearb...
