P. A. Duncan is a retired bureaucrat but one with an overactive imagination--at least that's what everyone has told her since she first started making up stories in elementary school, prompted by her weekly list of spelling words.

Frank Herbert
“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.

Frank Herbert, Dune

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Airman's Odyssey
