Ordering a latteI got in line at my favorite cafe inside Barnes and Noble and looked at the menu board scanning for the day's special; the special always cost $3.00; but in my case, I always had to add $ .50 for soy and another $.50 for extra syrup. I was lucky my regular flavor was on the day's special, tall, soy, Double sweet, Hazelnut mocha. After I made my order I Scanned the crowd and I saw my old school mate Karlynn walk in from the rain she called me about a month ago to ask a favor, she wanted to show her art in my studio in Seattle, I told her that I had been trying to find her for the same reason. Therefore, we decided to meet up and go over her portfolio.
TattooMy first tattoo I got when I was 31 yrs old, my girlfriend at the time paid for it; only $100.00 bucks she gave a $20.00 tip. The artist was great he had a light-handed touch, when I went in for my consultation I was told to bring in the design I wanted along with ideas for colors that I and the size I wanted it to be. When the day of my appointment came, I was so nerviest I had goose bumps. I was almost late for my appointment When I got there I told the artist to choose the colors that he thought best the outline was done in black first
Greyhound bus stationHe said that he was coming into town, he just did not say how. After surviving, two helicopter crashes in the war I knew he would not want to travel by plane, which left traveling by bus or train Jonathan is my best and closest friend. Especially after I dragged him kicking and screaming out of a rut after his second wife left him for something she swore she did not want, life as a military wife. He went off the deep end trying to chase her back to him of course this was all before he joined the Army. As I said, I dragged him kicking and screaming back to his rational senses. Just as he did for me on too many occasions for me to count, he always saw me as the little sister he has always wanted; he was the second person in my life to show me unconditional love. I gave it right back tenfold. I have no clue how I ever would have gotten along in my life without him. Whenever
An answering machine messageThe phone was ringing when I reached in to my pocket for my keys to the apartment. By the time I got the key in the lock it stop ringing and the answering machine picked it up. The voice was masculine and had an accent that I could not recognize nor place, the name he gave was foreign yet familiar, as I dropped the stack of mail on to the counter and my purse on the back of the couch, I kicked off my shoes at the door.

I got another postcard from Zoëy today this one says she is in Rome, Italy. She said that the air is grand and clean and that the villa that she is staying in is beautiful. She said that she had seen the ruins of ages old and gone, like the Roman Coliseum as well as the leaning tower of Pisa, which is so much bigger than they make it to be. She says that she is having dinner at a winery tonight and hopes that she does not fall in love with the most expensive wine on the list.
I got another postcard from Zoëy today this one says she is in Dublin Ireland. She said that she saw and kissed the blarney stone, and saw our ancestral home as well as met some of our distant relatives.

High school 9th gradeEveryone hates the first day of school, & I'm no exception. The popularity contest starts the same day, no other guessing games start until the middle of the year, you know the ones; who's most likely to succeed, who's the class clown, who's the teacher's pet, and all the other ones which are too many to list. New friends are made, old friends moved on to different schools, new enemies made, old enemies forgotten. Anyway, my name is Zoey Elisabeth Bathorery, & I am 13 years old. Too young you say to be in high school! On the contrary, I have an IQ of 145, & I am a card-carrying member of MENSA (a high profile club for nerds). A child Prodigy & outcast of most educational institutions, I was home schooled most of my life, my mom, had tried public schools but they were too boring & I also had a hard time sitting still. I made many enemies of the teachers, for correcting them in front of the class & from some jealous fellow students. All the different things my mom makes me do or the hobb

CancerCancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is all about home. Those born under this sign are 'roots' kinds of people, and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Cancers are maternal, domestic and love to nurture others. More than likely, their family will be large, too -- the more, the merrier! Cancers will certainly be merry if their home life is serene and harmonious. Traditions are upheld with great zest in a Cancer's household, since these folks prize family history and love communal activities. They also tend to be patriotic, waving the flag whenever possible. A Cancer's good memory is the basis for stories told around the dinner table, and don't be surprised if these folks get emotional about things. Those born under this sign wear their heart on their sleeve, which is just fine by them.
The mascot of Cancer is the Crab, and much like this shelled little critter, Cancers are quick to retreat into their shells if it suits their mood. No wonder these folks are called c
"To a Skylark"
Scritta a Livorno nell'estate del 1820, dopo aver ascoltato il canto delle allodole durante una passeggiata serale con Mary. L'idea che il canto delle allodole rappresenti una forza spirituale la cui influenza si può espandere su tutta la terra ricorda in qualche modo il "Fedro" di Platone.
Salute a te, O Spirito di Gioia!
Tu che non fosti mai uccello, e dall'alto
del Cielo, o vicino, rovesci
la piena del tuo cuore in generose
melodie di un'arte non premeditata.
Hail to Thee, blithe Spirit!
Bird thou never wert,
that from Heaven, or near it,
pourest thy full heart
in profuse strains of unpremeditated art.
Sempre più in alto, più in alto, ti vedo
guizzare dalla terra, una nube di fuoco,
e percorri con l'ali l'infinito azzurro,
ti levi nell'aria cantando,
e librandoti alta ancora canti.
Higher, still and higher
from the earth thou springest
like a cloud of fire;
the blue deep thou wingest,
and singing still dost soar, and soaring ever s
the 5 elementsThe 5 Elements of the Wiccan Religion
By Brian Edner
The Wiccan religion is a modern pagan religion that was developed in the first half of the 20th century. There are many parts to it, and one of them is the principle of 5 elements. These elements are Water, Earth, Fire, Air, and Spirit. The pentagram is a 5 pointed star that is inside a circle, this represents the 5 elements. According to the religion, each element has a direction, color, season, time of day, symbols, and aspects associated to it. This next part I am saying only to prevent others from criticizing me later, THIS IS NOT DEVIL WORSHIP, there may be some similarity with the symbols, there are not the same.
The first Element is Earth, the element of plants, rocks, and soil. Earth has ties to the north, the colors green and brown, wintertime, and midnight. Earth is a very stable element, and it grounds energies, be it lightning or magic. This is also the element of birth, death, and fertility. Do not plants grow from the e
the DelayedTime in the universe is delayed by light.There is undoubtedly a hiatus between what actually happens in the universe and what we see happening.Science has always mastered predictions far in the universe.Proper science jumps in time,looking backward and forward in time.Time is cellular for the time being.Independent and interdependent.When it comes to relate time either positive and abstract with self entities you get a glimpse of a time network that grows relentlessly in your grasp.Time has matter when is confronted by it and emerges in temporal tissues as the organs that keep our bodies in life.Think of our neural circuits that speed up our perception on basis of electricity.Light up your brain for the storm to come.Do it in time or elsewhere you'll be delayed.There is only one possibility of having the exact time in the universe and it isn't given by a precise clock rather by presence.Your presence in the universe is time itself.You see now elsewhere around you only your image.If you
In no particular order here are 6 reasons why you. It will increase your value
If you’ve studied game or made an effort towards self-improvement you know that in order to be a more desirable or respected man you must add value to yourself. This can mean exhibiting the skills you know. By doing things that most men can’t do you offer more value versus a man that can’t perform the skills you can. In other words you are worth more than another being if you are more productive than someone else. This can apply to any skill but cooking can be another one on the list.
2. You will know more than the average western woman
It is no secret that most western women, specifically American women, have no feminine instinct. A traditional women cooks, cleans and take care of the house, women like this are almost extinct in the states (just imagine my generation in a couple years). By casually hinting about your cooking skills you will already rein superiority over her, if she is unable to cook.
The Illusion of ColourColour is one of light's greatest illusions. I am not saying it's just something we make up in our heads (like you can't suddenly decide that cows are pink or the sky is orange) but it's a clever trick of light. When light hits an object, some of the waves are absorbed and some are scattered. What we see is a combination of the wavelengths that are reflected.
The spectrum of colour is 6/7 colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple (indigo and violet). When something appears as 1 colour that's because all the other colours are absorbed and the ones that are reflected are the ones we see. When something is black it means all the colours were absorbed and when it's white all the colours were reflected. Essentially black is all colours and white is the absence of colour. Red, yellow and blue are the primary colours while orange, green and purple are secondary (like orange is made from red and yellow). All other colours are mixed from these 6 (+/- black and white).

The Better Story
“So, the clergyman went back to Rome and reported to the Pope…”
It was Christmas Eve, 2013, and my grandpa had been regaling my family and I with the Knanaya legend for the past hour. The Knanaya legend is the story of how “my people” migrated from Israel and came to live in southern India, specifically the state of Kerala.
“Don’t roll your eyes,” my mother said, poking me in the side.
“Mom, I’ve heard this story so many times, I can recite it in my sleep. Why can’t Grandpa tell me the real history of the Knanayas?” I queried while yawning. My grandpa continued to talk over us, his movements and voice grand and exaggerated.
“The legend is the real story of the Knanayas,” my dad piped in from my left. “There are some embellishments, of course, but the basic outline is true.”
“So we did migrate from the Middle East to India for the spice trade?” I asked incredulously.
Stephen King vs. Dean KoontzThe similarities are many and the differences between Stephen King and Dean Koontz are hard to find for some because they both write in the same genre, that being horror and suspense fantasy.
How popular are Stephen King and Dean Koontz? Each has had novels on the New York Times Best Sellers List, King having 28 on the Number One Best Sellers List, some of which are "The Dead Zone," "Misery" and "Dolores Claiborne." Koontz having 10 books in total, on the Number One Sellers List, some of which are "Hideaway," "Intensity" and "Midnight." Some of these books have spent up to 14 weeks or longer on the Number One Best Sellers List.
Both authors started out writing short stories for different men's magazines. Both have had movies based from some of their books; some have been made for either TV, like King's "IT," or Koontz's "Mr. Murder" or a mini-series like King's "Kingdom Hospital," or Koontz's "Frankenstein," or even for a major motion picture like King's "The Secret Window" or Koontz's
