Shannon’s Recent Updates

Wisdom's Daughter by India Edghill
"
Edghill really wanted to showcase the world of Solomon and Bilqis, and her choice to do so was to give us so, so, so many Point-Of-View characters, first and third person.

It is rather headache inducing to jump from one courtier to the next, one w..." Read more of this review »

Hannah Greendale added a status update: I just posted a new Book Haul video on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. It has a little bit of everything, from a science fiction technothriller about space pirates to a folkloric tale of a cartographer's daughter taking on a legendary demon.

Mark Twain
“Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”
Mark Twain

Martin Luther King Jr.
“When I took up the cross I recognized it's meaning. The cross is something that you bear, and ultimately, that you die on.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr.
“The first principle of value that we need to rediscover is this: that all reality hinges on moral foundations. In other words, that this is a moral universe, and that there are moral laws of the universe just as abiding as the physical laws. (from "Rediscovering Lost Values")”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pablo Neruda
“Amor"

So many days, oh so many days
seeing you so tangible and so close,
how do I pay, with what do I pay?

The bloodthirsty spring
has awakened in the woods.
The foxes start from their earths,
the serpents drink the dew,
and I go with you in the leaves
between the pines and the silence,
asking myself how and when
I will have to pay for my luck.

Of everything I have seen,
it's you I want to go on seeing:
of everything I've touched,
it's your flesh I want to go on touching.
I love your orange laughter.
I am moved by the sight of you sleeping.

What am I to do, love, loved one?
I don't know how others love
or how people loved in the past.
I live, watching you, loving you.
Being in love is my nature.

You please me more each afternoon.

Where is she? I keep on asking
if your eyes disappear.
How long she's taking! I think, and I'm hurt.
I feel poor, foolish and sad,
and you arrive and you are lightning
glancing off the peach trees.

That's why I love you and yet not why.
There are so many reasons, and yet so few,
for love has to be so,
involving and general,
particular and terrifying,
joyful and grieving,
flowering like the stars,
and measureless as a kiss.

That's why I love you and yet not why.

Pablo Neruda, Intimacies: Poems of Love

Pablo Neruda
“And I, infinitesima­l being,
drunk with the great starry
void,
likeness, image of
mystery,
I felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
