DesertRose,

Have you read "Into the Wilderness" by Sara Donati? A friend of mine at work is a huge fan of Gabaldon and she said that Donati mentions Ian and Claire in her books. . . I thought you might find it interesting smile.gif

I'm reading two books and listening to a third book on audio tape right now. "Sacred Treason" by James Forrester (so far so good), "Sappho's Leap" (might not finish sad.gif ) and Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden (which is really hard to remember how to spell...)

1860: Lincoln nominated for Presidency
1783: The first United Empire Loyalists, known to American Patriots as Tories, arrive in Canada to take refuge under the British crown in Parrtown, Saint John, Nova Scotia (now New Brunswick), Canada. Most of the refugees came from New York, which had been under royal control throughout most of the War for Independence.
1861: Arkansas admitted to Confederate States of America

"Perhaps" The lady replied with a small smile. "I do not want to take away from the lovely pairings already dancing; you are all so nice together. But if the current musicians would like to dance, I would be more than happy to fill in for them." She continued to smile, but felt rather too tired to dance. It had been a long flight.
She bent her head to hear better the strings of the fiddle as she softly plucked each one to check the tuning.

The sound of jigs and stomping feet made the green dragon pause as she flew past the pub where she used to play tunes. Gosh, she thought to herself, my fiddle's still there! The dragon swerved from her route and dropped in front of the door. A green light illuminated the area.

The Green Lady walked into the pub and breathed in the old, yet familiar, smells. She smiled to herself as she watched the dancers briefly from the door, while wringing out her waist-length hair that had gotten soaked the few steps from the meadow outside to the door. She calmly drew her dark green cloak around her and stepped towards the bar. Hamm gave her a funny, do-I-know-you look, and she couldn't help but giggle as she asked, "Still have me fiddle?" He gestured below his bar. The Green Lady took the case, a drink and wandered to one of the back booths to see if the instrument was still good.

I just finished reading "The Virgin Queen's Daughter" - a debut, I believe, by Ella March Chase. It was a really good read, but now I'm starting on a non-fiction "The Letters of Arbella Stuart." I'm always surprised by how little people know about her since Queen Elizabeth was using her as a possible heir against King James of Scotland. smile.gif

Um, not really. It's not like I'm actually a serious poet or anything. I entered for English class. If it's serious that's great, if it isn't, I still don't plan to spend any money on the book, besides, I work in a book store and can easily view it when it comes out. So don't worry 'bout me, if it's serious, sweet, if it isn't, whatever.

One of the books that I re-read constantly is The Silver Wolf by Alice Borchardt. I love it..next to that....anything on my book shelf. It doesn't make it there unless it is re-readable. tongue.gif

One of my poems is going to be published in The International Library of Poetry coming out this spring!! I'm a semifinalist in their contest, which I entered for English. The poem is saying why blank verse is better than any stylized poetry, but the ironic thing is -- it's written in iambic pentameter! tongue.gif laugh.gif biggrin.gif laugh.gif rolleyes.gif smile.gif tongue.gif

It's called: A Tribute to Blank Verse

I plan on taking my brother to see Eragon. He's read both of the books. The lines delivered by the main character in the previews seem a little iffy to me...but the scenery and special effects look like they'll make up for that. Currently watching "Hamlet" in English..oh joy..and then we're watching "Much Ado About Nothing"...another Shakespeare creation....

Just wanted to add that this is a Petrarchan Sonnet. It rhymes ABBAABBACDECDE and 8 lines about one topic with a turn at the 9th line and then the last 6 lines. It is iambic pentameter or unstressed stressed with 10 syllables.

I wrote this for AP English, it's about Josh Groban and music:

Groban

A voice of silver ringing from the depths
Of feeling, wrought to bear the soul through scales
of chords and song. Emotions boil, life pales,
time slows–the crowd hangs on all of his breaths,
a ghostly hand of music stop their deaths
from lack of notes his voice entwines. Fresh tales
of love encompassed by his tone, it rails
against the norm, it drains emotive debts.
Yet tone alone does not entail desire,
the words evoke the feeling of delight,
of lyrics form with lines like, “Don’t give up”*
or, “Tears of hope run down my skin,”** conspire
to twist, enmesh the fans in feelings bright,
their hopes run high, he cries, “You raise me up.”***

* From the song “You are Loved (Don’t Give Up)”
** From the song “Remember When It Rained”
*** From the song “You Raise Me UP”

I know this is kinda late, but I was thinking of it and decided to see what you guys thought. I honestly have no problem with it. If they can separate tribes by sex and age, why not race? It's not like they forced them to speak a certain language, or dock points for race or anything. So what do you think?

I just saw Casino Royale today, and eventhough I am sick with a bad headache, it was still an amazing movie. Daniel Craig is amazing....there really is just no other way to describe his performance. I thought Eva Green did a good job as the Bond girl, but I have to admit...I ignored her whenever Craig was in the scene.... tongue.gif
