    Inside the Heart of Darkness

    As we move into the darkest time of the year, the human mind takes an inevitable turn towards more negative thoughts and emotions. One of the biggest myths of today’s society is depression. An entire society is forced to ignore their own needs and desires and trade them in for soul crushing indentured servitude; our very thoughts imprisoned by various belief systems. A legal system that imprisons a human being for doing with their own bodies what they will. A society of brainwashed sheep trained to trample any hint of free thinking. All of life has become a prison, where every man, woman and child is reduced to a mere…

    Peeking in the Shadows: Crafting a Book of Shadows and Light

    This month I want to offer something a little different. We have had stressful and draining experience since the beginning of the COVI-D-19 Pandemic. I would like us to stand in the light of the Summer Solstice; anticipating this longest day and the hope that this light will bring. This is a writing that I return to again and again as I call to the Sun’s brilliance and the hope that it brings. Perhaps this is something you would like to add to your BOS. Rework, rephrase, rewrite it in any way that speaks to you. (Photo by Adrian Pelletier on Unsplash) Mother’s Flowering- The Summer Solstice The night is…

    Book Review – Five Dark Fates by Kendare Blake

    Book Review Five Dark Fates by Kendare Blake 464 Pages     We are here, the last book in this series! I have to say that this series was an actual adventure. The most difficult task in reviewing them for you is not giving away too much, and still holding your, (the readers) interest. Our story starts out right where Two Dark Reigns leaves us. At this time, you will know that Jules Malone the Legion Queen of Sunpool is in a very, very bad way.Her legion curse is unbound and she is losing her mind. In no way, shape, or form able to rule anything, let alone a rebellion.…

    Book Review – Two Dark Reigns (Book 3) by Kendare Blake

    Book Review Two Dark Reigns (Book 3) by Kendare Blake 464 Pages     Here we go! On to Book Three, Two Dark Reigns. This book has a couple of pages before the story starts, reminding you who belongs to what family, as well as a map of “their world”, so to speak. I did find it helpful and referred to it as needed. I suggest you use it as well, as it makes the picture clearer for the reader and allows for you to connect to them. Interestingly enough, this book starts in the past-400 years before our girls’ story begins, and I found myself initially feeling like, why?…
