Quote of the Day


When the one arises who can make you laugh, solemn Ista, angry Ista,
iron Ista, then your heart will be healed.
You have not prayed for this:
it’s guerdon even the gods cannot give you.
We are limited to such simples as redemption from your sins.

-Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold

  2. I haven't read that of Bujold's. I did like the whole Miles series though...

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly, kid safe, and open to discussion, not criticism. This is my home. You can live in yours as you wish, but this is my place.
