Hi Friends,

It has been just a wonderful few weeks. I am so blessed by such a terrific network of family and friends (including online, from events and more). Thank you once more for all of your encouragement. Writing can often involve quite a bit of rejection, so your kind support is incredibly valued (probably more than you know).

I will try to be back to post before 2016, however, things do Read more of this blog post »

This book was wonderfully odd and engaging!

My Rating on a Five Star Scale: 5/5
(Multiple times while reading this, I was reminded of Labyrinth, the movie, in an awesome way...)

As I've mentioned before in my reviews, I like to touch on certain elements

“Delusional or not, maybe if I believe in a better world with enough conviction, and convince others to believe it as well, then it will be real.”
Emilyann Girdner, The Labyrinth Wall

“To imagine is to spark beauty in our thoughts.”
Emilyann Girdner

“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.”

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
