History Behind Love on the Border

In Love on the Border, I combined two major historical facts into the backstory of our hero, John Miller.

Adding examples to my books

When I wrote Learning Spanish Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics , I intentionally omitted examples for the headwords, so that the book remains compact and each headword entry looks short and clean.

Anche dimenticare fa di noi
gli esseri umani che siamo.
Ci danno la sensazione di possedere il centro
dolore rabbia amore compassione
metamorfosi del divenire.
Ci pensiamo sul ramo del passato
come frutti maturi
in cui urge la linfa del futuro.

Doar dragostea mai poate să rimeze
Când zilele se-ntorc din timp
În curse lungi pe-un contratimp
De griji ciobind în metereze.

Când zori se prind în hore – dor
Cu șoaptele luminii – cânt
Iar seri dansează pe pământ
Speranțe pentr-un viitor.

Când stele cad și ruga-n noi
Ne arde gândurile-n taină,
