With writing comes reading. I like to read all kinds of stuff. I write about some of the books I read for different reasons, I suppose. Sometimes it’s about reflection, other times analysis and practice, but mostly it’s about learning. I’m a storyteller, too, and I learn something every time I read another’s work.

Sometimes my reviews are critical, and I don’t love the 5-star system for ratings, but even the books I seem to speak of harshly have given me a gift and I am forever grateful to the superhero who’s sat down alone for days and weeks and years to write a story to tell me. That is a

Almost: the most dangerous word in the English language

At traveling fairs in the nineteenth century, “if you missed the prize at a carnival game, the carnie folk would shout, ‘Close! But no cigar!’”  They used to give out cigars as prizes, so I assume the games weren’t always for kids. Not sure when that changed but I remember my first carnie game —Continue reading "Almost: the most dangerous word in the English language" Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by K.P. Ambroziak  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“She waited barefoot beneath the great reflector for the Kyprian to come and take her to the outer sands. She didn’t scream when they came, she didn’t cry, she simply faded away in silence. I woke to the eye shining through the lattice of my shanty. I could hear Bendo gnawing on the blades of grass outside. Minosh had told me she was sure many more species existed before the Kyprian arrived but only a few survived the induction of gold.”
K.P. Ambroziak, El and Onine

“I’d like to call him Bitner,” she said, as though she’d contemplated it long and hard. “Bitner?” “I read it in one of your books.” She continued to gaze at our son, her cheeks reddening with her angst. She’d already anticipated my departure. “He’ll grow up to be wise like his father, and loyal like his kin.” “I love it. Bitner Bijarnarson.” I stepped forward, admiring the first boy born to us. I wondered if there’d be another. Netta”
K.P. Ambroziak, Grief For Heart

“I thought creators were supposed to tell their younglings they were special. I didn’t know mine meant something more when she told me. I could’ve never known what she’d seen in the water. My future was a secret she kept bound up inside her.”
K.P. Ambroziak, El and Onine

“A picture held us captive. And we could not get outside it, for it lay in our language and language seemed to repeat it to us inexorably.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations

“We are made of stardust; why not take a few moments to look up at the family album?”
Natalie Angier, The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science

“Even when you have doubts, take that step. Take chances. Mistakes are never a failure—they can be turned into wisdom.”

April Wood Huh? I'm confused... We weren't already Goodreads friends? Do you have another account? I don't know how I missed that either! Glad you noticed! :)
