Good Morning, Book Loving Friends... Image

“Living well is an art that can be developed:
a love of life and ability to take great pleasure from small offerings
and assurance that the world owes you nothing
and that every gift is exactly that, a gift.”

~ Maya Angelo



Image




"A walk in nature
walks the soul back home."

~ Mary Davis




Image



“We bless the life around us far more than we realize.
Many simple, ordinary things that we do can affect those around us in profound ways:
the unexpected phone call, the brief touch, the willingness to listen generously,
the warm smile or wink of recognition.
We can even bless total strangers and be blessed by them.
Big messages come in small packages.”

~ Rachel Naomi Remen M.D., My Grandfather’s Blessings: Stories of Strength, Refuge and Belonging

“A very little key will open a very heavy door.”

~ Charles Dickens

WHAT’S UP WITH “E.G.” AND “I.E.”?

There are four important points to clear up regarding e.g. and i.e.

Image

They are not the same thing, nor can they be used interchangeably.
You should never add “etc.” after either one.
They don’t need to be italicized.
You should put a comma after e.g. and i.e.


Image

Image

In case you’re wondering, e.g. is short for exempli gratia, and i.e. is short for id est. They’re both from Latin.

And here’s the fourth point:

Oh, yeah, alright
Ooh (yeah)

Everyone knows all about my direction
And in my heart somewhere I wanna go there
Still I don't go there

Everybody says "say something"
Say something, say something
Then say something, say something, then say something

I don't wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can't help myself, no, I can't help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can't help myself, no I can't help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have

Everyone knows all about my transgressions
Still in my heart somewhere, there's melody and harmony
For you and me, tonight (whoa)

I hear them call my name
Everybody says "say something"
Then say something, say something
Then say something, say something then say something

I don't want to get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can't help myself, no I can't help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can't help myself, no I can't help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)

Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing

But I can't help myself, no I can't help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can't help myself, no I can't help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)
Maybe I'm looking for something I can't have (maybe I'm looking for something I can't have)

Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing

"A truck loaded with thousands of copies of Roget's Thesaurus crashed yesterday losing its entire load. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, confused, shocked, rattled, paralysed, dazed, bewildered, mixed up, surprised, awed, dumbfounded, nonplussed, flabbergasted, astounded, amazed, confounded, astonished, overwhelmed, horrified, numbed, speechless, and perplexed." [default_biggrin.png] tlol tlol tlol

* For those who are not familiar with Roget's Thesaurus, it is a book in which you can find alternative words (synonyms), i.e.,
repeating the same word throughout your writing can become repetitive to a reader, and you could use a thesaurus to get a synonym of the word.

Roget's Thesaurus is a widely used English-language thesaurus, created in 1805 by Peter Mark Roget (1779–1869), British physician, natural theologian and lexicographer. It was released to the public on 29 April 1852. The original edition had 15,000 words, and each new edition has been larger.

There have been more than 40 million Roget's Thesauruses sold!

It's a must-have for any student and/or writer. tfeelthelove

"Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself.
When you are carried away with your worries, fears,
cravings, anger, and desire,
you run away from yourself and you lose yourself.
The practice is always to go back to oneself."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

"Make your own Holy Book.
Select and collect all the words and sentences that
in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

in the distance.
The wise grows it under
his feet."

you are just one story walking among millions."

"I conquered my fear! YES!"
and calmly walk away.
I was inspired.”

“Last year, a teacher brought balloons to school and asked his students to blow them up.
Then he had each of them write his/her name on one of the balloons.

Once they wrote their names on the balloons, they tossed them into the hallway
where they were mixed up from one end to the other.

The teacher then gave them five minutes to find their balloon with their name on it.
The students frantically ran around looking, but as time ran out, nobody found their own balloon.

Next, the teacher told them to take the balloon closest to them and give it to the person whose name was on it.

In less than two minutes everyone had his or her own balloon.

Finally, the teacher said, "Balloons are like happiness.
No one will find it looking for theirs only.
Instead, if everyone cares about each other, they will find theirs as quickly as possible."

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when He is silent.
I believe through any trial,
there is always a way
But sometimes in this suffering
and hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter,
to know someone’s there
But a voice rises within me, saying hold on
my child, I’ll give you strength,
I’ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.
I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there
But I believe in God
even when he is silent
I believe through any trial
there is always a way.
May there someday be sunshine
May there someday be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace….”
― Unknown (Written during WW2, on the wall of a cell by a Jewish prisoner in the Cologne concentration camp)

Srečko Kosovel (1904-1926), known as Slovenian Rimbaud

A FACE BY THE WINDOW

I love you, the grey face in the grey
window of the coffee house - the face
with expectations.-
In the age of broken spears, ships,
masts - the heart full of
arrows - grey apathy in the eyes,
you would know: It spills
over us like a cascade of light
from the sky.

We will be able to look at
the swaying of the green seas
and see terrifying whirlpools,
sailors on masts,
without nervousnes.

OUR EYES

Our eyes were flooded
with burning lava.
And the grey dust
of cement towers
burnt our lips.
Like burning trees
we leaned
into a new day.

A SUICIDE IN FRONT OF A MIRROR

A suicide in front of a mirror.
A frightened soul.
The wind moans in the black woods.
The night's tempest tears my heart from my chest.

My spirit, you are the Flying Dutchman,
always returning to the primal darkness,
getting drunk on the blowing of the wind!
A policeman blowing his whistle.

It is frightening to be a brother to the storm!
Frightening to be a brother to the silver sun.
Stay broken and slain, my spirit,
do not look to the dead slopes for salvation.

I walk through the woods. The tree trunks are black.
Two go leaning towards each other.
The black chasm of the universe above me.
I am leaning into it
and listening.

I walk through the woods. The tree trunks are black.
Two go leaning towards each other.
The black chasm of the universe above me.
I am leaning into it
and listening.

Translation: Katarina Jerin

 I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;I lift my lids and all is born again. (I think I made you up inside my head.)                                                                                                                                                        Mad Girl's Love Song" - Sylvia Plath

Bittersweet thing, could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain, tall shot of pain
Pour a little out now for the love that we've made

I feel it the morning, you're still here in the morning
I see you, but you're gone, telephone the doctor, I'm not okay
The bottom of the bottle to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don't change the truth, I dive in, but I can't


I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim, I’ve tried all of their friends
But I can't drink you away
All of these rocks, I can't swim outta this skin, I'm livin' in


Say, now tell me baby, don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?
Tell me baby, now don't they make a medicine for heartbreak?


Got that poundin' on my brain, so I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow, you can find me doin' the same
'Cause I just can't forget, the way we turned out this bad
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

ADVICE FROM OLD BOOKS

How to Cure a Werewolf, 6th century

Image

Those who are afflicted by the disease cynanthropy or lycanthropy go out at night… and imitate wolves or dogs in every way and hang around tombs until daylight. These are the symptoms that allow you to recognize sufferers: they are pale, their gaze is listless, they have dry eyes, and they cannot produce tears. Their eyes are sunken and their tongue is dry. They are thirsty and their shins are covered in wounds from falling continuously and being bitten by dogs…

You can treat it when it manifests by opening a vein and draining the blood until the point of fainting, then feed the patient with nourishing food. The patient should be given a sweet bath. After rubbing him with the whey of milk for three days, apply wild gourd salve… After the cleansing, anoint him with the antidote for viper bites…

When evening comes and the disease manifests, apply soporific lotion to the head and rub the nostrils with scents and opium. Sometimes you should provide sleep-inducing drinks as well.

Aëtius of Amida, Libri medicinales

* Finally, an intensive spa treatment designed for werewolves.

~ ELIZABETH ARCHIBALD, PhD.
