I live in a community in the Sonoran Desert. It’s a place where “lawn” is defined by the shade of stone that covers your yard: Desert Gold, Apache Rose, Santa Fe Brown. Rain is seasonal and precious. And after the rains, an amazing thing happens … the desert turns green. Not in a lush temperate forest sort of way, but in a hushed and quiet sort of way. At first it’s barely noticeable. And th...

Mostly just an 80s nostalgia trip

I should have liked this novel more. After all, I still have first edition D&D manuals on my bookshelf and quite a few of the scifi and fantasy movies mentioned in my video collection. But for all that, I was an a

Ursula K. Le Guin
“It is no secret. All power is one in source and end, I think. Years and distances, stars and candles, water and wind and wizardry, the craft in a man's hand and the wisdom in a tree's root: they all arise together. My name, and yours, and the true name of the sun, or a spring of water, or an unborn child, all are syllables of the great word that is very slowly spoken by the shining of the stars. There is no other power. No other name.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

M.D. Lachlan
“There is a moment between waking and sleeping and between sleeping and waking when the mind seems to be in many places at once, when memories mingle with dreams, when what has been and what is yet to be exist side by side, and when the mind slips free of time and personality to wander in strange halls where the familiar and the strange become indistinguishable and ghosts and visions walk hand in hand. Aelis tumbled toward sleep and fell into this place, to the mind's borderlands, where magic is.”
M.D. Lachlan, Fenrir

Ted Hughes
“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”

Cottageunderhill Nice Pic!

Cottageunderhill I read both the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. I liked the stories, but not the writing, which I felt was condescen..."

Yeah, I agree. Though I thought the story for Angels and Demons was better than the Da Vinci Code. And well, that's the problem with writer's and their egos... I like when they explain stuff but not when the stuff they are explaining a kindergartener should know. ;)

I read both the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. I liked the stories, but not the writing, which I felt was condescending and pedantic :) Dan Brown wastes too much time telling the reader how smart he is.

Cottageunderhill I thought you didn't read the "Da Vinci Code"...

Cottageunderhill You need a pic! :D
