Those activities form some of my fondest memories and are things I shared with most of my friends. The bonds formed in our teenage years have continued to this day. In fact, I'm now writing books with some of those friends. It still brings back those same feelings I experienced when first reading Dragonlance for the first time or Shannara.(less)

Noaman Hogira الفراشة رغم جمالها تبقى حشرة ...
و الصبار رغم قسوته ..زهرة
فلا تحكم على الناس من اشكالهم
بل احكم عليهم بما تحتوى قلوبهم


message 11: by Noaman

Noaman Hogira إن الأوطان كما هي محتاجة لقوة وعنفوان الشباب فهي أيضاً أكثر حاجة لحكمة وخبرة الشيوخ (وتعجل الشباب في استخدام القوة قد تكون سبب هلاك الأمة بدون حكمة الشيوخ)وعلى الشباب أن لا يتسرعوا باستخدام القوة دون الرجوع إلى العقلاء من أبناء الأمة فهم أصحاب الحل والعقد فلا يمكن تغافلهم

message 10: by Noaman

Noaman Hogira إن الشباب طاقة وقوة لا يستهان به , وهو بنفس الوقت سلاح ذو حدين , فإذا وجهته التوجيه السليم وغرس في نفسهم الفضيلة وحب الدين والوطن فإنهم لا شك سوف يكونوا عماد وسند الأمة , أما إذا تركته تتلاطم به الأهواء والملذات فقد يُستقطب ويكون ذراع للعدو يضرب الوطن من الداخل (وهنا يكون خطره أكبر من خطر العوا الظاهر)

Daniel Russell It's odd when you meet a 'character' from one of your books! Enter Brian Rathbone, hero of Samhane and the short story formerly titled Brian Rathbone: Seed of Evil.

Nice to meet you!
