Man’s Role in Life – The Garden

My husband and I like to take walks, and our favorite place to go is Banner Forest, very near our home. There are so many lovely wild trails. I go to the woods for inspiration, and this morning, with the cool Pacific Northwest breeze chilling my face, the mist coating the air with a musty scent, and the subtle green of the fir trees, I got to thinking.

There are two kinds of gardens in this wo

Love the sea. I really do need to start updating my book shelf. Some of the more recent books I read are missing.

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Hi! Thanks for the add! Nice shelf, books! Will be glad to share some recommendations, tips, etc in the future! Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (as my water dragons' hunters would greet - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).


Dianne Thank you!

Hazel West Well, I can't live without writing ;) Historical fantasy is kind of a new favorite genre of mine. I'm working on a steampunk novel at the moment which I guess is more alternate history than fantasy, but still really fun.


Dianne Ditto here! I've wanted to delve into historical fantasy. I actually have a fantasy novel written inspired by a historical event. It won't be published until 2013, but it's one of my favorite stories that I've written. Anyway, I'd love to talk to you about it. You have a lot of work out! Impressive!

Hazel West Thanks for the friend invite! I look forward to exchanging recommendations and stuff with you =)
