O'siyo,
~ Well from another Forum, Dreamer inadvertently sparked my interest in a book that I continue to pick up from tyme to tyme, The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews by Scott Cunningham..it's a 'cookbook' of sorts that teaches and allows plenty of room for experimentation and personalization while working with herbs..thats just one factor of the book tongue.gif It's really interesting for any of you that are wanting to find out about brews and herbs and how to use them for their fullest potential..

I am reading an incredible book called "A City of Bells" by Elizabeth Goudge. Her style of writing is just superb. She describes things in a way that stirs my soul, and brings tears to my eyes - kind of the way I have always seen them, and yet was unable to vocalize.

Very cool. The edition I have only says 1936, so I am unsure whether that was the original published date. But I have been getting into the classics, and older books, so this one is a goodie if anyone else is looking into books of that category smile.gif

At the moment I'm reading "SEVEV ARROWS" by Hyemoyohsts Storm. This book is about the Medicine Wheel and Native American Spirituality and to my mind probably the best example for the oral tradition put in a narrative prose. It's ...awesome!

A few, actually. I'm just about finished with It's Not About the Bike by Lance Armstrong, I'm a few chapter into Holy Blood, Holy Grail, and I'm 4 chapters into The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Kemma da har a hoolidoonia?

How is everyone out there? Greetings from the byootiful Boyne River in Manitoba. I am currently reading two books - No Great Mischief by Canada's Alaistair McLeod. A Great book and I am reading it for the second time. Love the Gaelic in that book. Does anyone on this list know any great Gaelic online teaching resources? There used to be one by Eileen MacKenzie of Strathpeffer but it looks like the archived lessons have been taken off line. I would love to have that resource again.

I am also reading "Dead Man Walking".

Do let me know anyone if you know of Gaelic resources on the net.

I will give you an example which I have often puzzled over. The spider dances her web without knowing there are flies who will get caught in it. The fly, dancing nonchalantly on a sunbeam, gets caught without knowing what lies in store. But through both of them "It" dances and inside and outside are united in this dance. So too, the Archer hits the target without having aimed - more I cannot say.

Seadreamer! Welcome! There is a language forum on the site here with some Irish or Scots Gaelic to learn. Danann is in charge of that. Just go to the bottom here and scroll to Gaelic languages and click on that and you should find some help! Have fun!

There are two great series of books. One is from J. Ardian Lee about a young man from Tenn. who goes back to 18th century Scotland. There are 4 books in this series. The first is "Son of the Sword". Very good books, I've read them three times.
The second series is by Juliet Marillier called the "Sevenwaters Trilogy". Its set in Ireland. The first of this series is called "Daughter of the Forest". If anyone has read them, I'd love to hear what you think of them. If no one has read them, you may want to give them a go. Enjoy!

I read the "Sevenwaters Triology" and absolutely loved them. I read them this past summer and couldnt put them down. I think I started to read them out of order but still loved them and was like what happened what happened.

Currently I am between books but I just finished reading Green Grass, Running Water by Thomas King and have recently ordered some J. D. Robb books through my library at home to read over vacation.

Right now I read again the Heralds of Valdemar Trilogy.

Finished yesterday Arrows of the Queen and I am halfway through Arrow's Flight and hope by tomorrow will be half way through Arrow's Fall again.

After that I probably will get through my new collection of classics.

I got a 6 books Romance Classic Collection Box with books from Jane Austen and others.

But not sure what I will feel like. Might just get through some other books!

It's time for Christmas - I need a fresh book supply!
