Have a Happy Mother's Day!
"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was." Ernest Hemingway
Congratulations P. L. Parker! I think you've written a book that meets the qualifications of the above quote.
"Beyond Tomorrow," and "Into the Savage Dawn," are well worth your time readers, and I dare add that you will have a hard time putting them down. But those are the best kinds of books after all, the ones whose world you want to stay in - that you're sad to leave, yet remain a treasure to your heart.
May is music month in New Zealand. I like that. Here we celebrate the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival the last week-end in April, and the first week-end in May. And after all the talk of rain in April, it's still here, at least it was until this morning. Sunny skies are predicted for tomorrow, and unseasonably cool temperatures. That will be great for this week-end's festival...now if only the mud will dry by tomorrow morning. I hear the wind outside, and it reminds me of the "Little House on the Prairie" series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, "The Long Winter," in particular. If you are ever in De Smet, South Dakota it would be worth the time to see The Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant. You can find out more by going to the following URL: http://desmetpageant.org/
Have a good week. And in the spirit of New Zealanders why not enjoy your favorite music this month? Whether listening to a favorite CD or fitting in a concert, the sound of music is infectious.
