Description: "Tales, unlike stories, never lie. You see, a tale is an account of things in their due order, often divulged secretly, or as gossip. Would you like to hear one?" —Lord Autumn Uncle Ebb was so good at telling his tales of the Moon Realm that sometimes it sounded like he’d been there himself. As children, Lily and Jasper listened raptly to his bedtime tales of a place where nine moons swirled around one another, each inhabited by strange and wondrous beings: magical lunamancers; undersea merfolk; wise birds; winged dragons; and Lily’s favorite, the heroic, leonine Rinn. There was only one rule: don’t tell a soul. But now, years later, Uncle Ebb is missing. Lily has learned the secret behind the tales, and soon Jasper will too. But there’s one big problem. You see, something terrible has happened in the Moon Realm. . . . Featuring twenty-two stunning full-color illustrations by Carolyn Arcabascio. Volume One of the fantasy adventure series The Moon Realm.

Diann Shaddox Hi Richard, I'm introducing my new book, A Faded Cottage, a SC love story.Quaid Witherspoon is a man turning fifty, a man with success and money, a world acclaimed artist, but a simple feat of holding a paintbrush turns Quaid’s life upside down
when fate steps in. I'm spreading the word about Essential Tremors and for each book sold a donation will be given back to the IETF. Thanks A Faded Cottage by Diann Shaddox


message 20: by Jalil

Jalil Although dividing the life to separated parts seems to be irrational and

unscientific, to understand the problem I have to do this. We always are

experiencing two different state of life: living or understanding. In this

essay, I’m going to write about different degrees of tendency for living and

understanding.



As far as I concern, the most important purpose of living

things is surviving. During billions years, we developed different behaviors

for surviving, followed by mating and reproduction. These behaviors

including war, collecting or saving money or food, forming family, fear,

avoiding dangerous situations, etc warranty our survive and consequently

our eternal development and evolution. I call this process “living”.



Another important point is “Understanding” which means personal

development. Every living thing has a special purpose in life and has been

planning to reach them as well as some plans for improving or renovating

him/herself.



Since “Living” is almost reachable in our developed and secure world, I

suggest we should emphasize on the personal aspects of life or

“Understanding”. Life consists of different experiences from pleasure to pain

to sadness or happiness which all of them are transitory. But our knowledge

and understanding about our self and universe are more considerable and

powerful. Consequently, I always emphasize on the pleasure of

understanding through science and knowledge which is the most beautiful

pleasure. Moreover, if you look into statistics of quarrel and violence, family

problems, addictions, alcoholism, etc you will realize most of involved

people aren’t educated enough.



Overall I believe that science and knowledge make us more aware and

intelligent and consequently more strong and powerful .In addition, they

are the most important sources of understanding human existence, nature

and the universe instead of traditional lifestyle, efforts, beliefs or assumptions
