A certain king had a beautiful garden, and in the garden stood a tree which bore golden apples. These apples were always counted, and about the time when they began to grow ripe it was found that... More > every night one of them was gone. The king became very angry at this, and ordered the gardener to keep watch all night under the tree. The gardener set his eldest son to watch; but about twelve o'clock he fell asleep, and in the morning another of the apples was missing. Then the second son was ordered to watch; and at midnight he too fell asleep, and in the morning another apple was gone.

Think of moments, including birth, as memories rippling through our bodies. My mind is only one of millions,like the stars. Imagine one moment as all there is, to be in an upturned coffee table,... More > sailing the Horn of Africa in a storm, masts quivering, sails snapping, ropes stretching,wood creaking, water blowing, the full moment's movement all you feel, thrilling and real. I began to wonder if our images are real just because we think them. And lost, gone forever, if we forget. I wondered if we disappear as easily. I began (as we do) with a mind open to the ocean of innocence and experience, but my thoughts were squeezed by ancient bands of beliefs formed from chemical memories, tightening and tilting and coloring my world. This is my way of defining how the circle of experience spirals and widens; how my egg of a mind began its fertilization, its quest to know itself. Ultimately, the mind always succeeds. With love, we grow up. There is infinity to remember once we begin.< Less

“Where did you come from?” he snapped quietly. “I hardly think this is the time!” I hissed back. “I heard the shots and saw you pinned down.” “I was not... More > ‘pinned down’!” he retorted quietly, pulling me back into the shelter of the boulders. “So you knew that brave was sneaking up on you?” I gestured to where I’d made my first shot and he scowled again. “No, I reckon I owe you for that,” “We can discuss life favors later.” I whispered. It was far too quiet out there for my liking. “My cabin is over that rise, tucked in the valley, and if we can make it we’ll be safe,” “Can you ride?” he asked, noting my limp. “Can you shoot?” I retorted. He cracked a dry grin and gestured to the horses. “After you ma’am, I’ll keep you covered.”< Less
The Framing of Mrs. Devlin By Rory d'Eon
eBook (ePub): $7.99
The Framing of Mrs. Devlin: Everything has gone wrong. Mrs. Devlin is crushed, “snapped out” of reality, and has retreated into her own world, certain that no one understands her,... More > certain that she’s a failure. Though deeply troubled by her actions, all is not lost. Roderick flourishes despite her, she finds a listener in Agnes, and Father Penner becomes an ally. Even her husband reaches out to her, though in an unexpected and stirring fashion. Peace returns. But it’s short-lived. Monsignor’s plans threaten to destroy her and her family. And the underlying issues are still there, haunting her every step. Once and for all, Mrs. Devlin must preserve what’s most precious to her and her loved ones. Note: This novel relies on the reader being very familiar with The Unspooling of Mrs. Devlin (available at Lulu). Without that knowledge many passages in this book will not make sense. In addition, the overall picture, Mrs. Devlin’s journey, and those of other characters, will be lost.< Less
