Snowflakes and Swordplay

How’s your Christmas week been? Hope you had a good one! Not very yule like here in Georgia. Storms raging outside, rain drenching fields, lightning blazing silver through the gloom. Booming thunder, pets scurrying nervously under the bed. Ouch. A touch unseasonal, but hey – define normal during these tumultuous times. Here’s a whimsical moment to lift you away from the hectic holidays whirl. A dr

“You can never have enough sharp things in this world”
J.W. Webb

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
