So my mystery is who my birth parents are and why they gave me up for adoption. In effect, I want their story of who they were when I was born. (less)

The complexities of fathers day


I've been thinking a lot about fathers lately. Not just about the wonderful man who raised me and who I said goodbye to for the final time four years ago, but also about the word father and its multiple meanings.
While the noun versions of both father and mother denote the people who raise a child, the verb forms hold quite different connotations:  To mother is to nurture. To father is to contr... Read more of this blog post »

"A fitting conclusion to the series!

A rollicking spy story all the way through, vray. There is quite the ballet of character movements as the plot pulls us along at a steady pace -- active but not rushed -- all the way to the end, with just enough..." Read more of this review »

“Ro counted to three, waiting for the station's tired AI to parse her request and decide to give her access. The round door irised in silence. Daedalus didn't even bother to acknowledge her. Wiggling her middle finger at the recessed ocular, she stepped through the opening into the central nexus. She needed to get as far away from her quarters and her father as she could despite the confines of the station.”
L.J. Cohen, Derelict

“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Winston S. Churchill

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
