  1. I am interested that we are going back to where we were when we told stories around the fire, surrounded by wild beasts. Pre-script. We are so educated we have educated ourselves out of symbols and into the spoken word!
  2. Heirophant? Septenary? Interregnum? My vocabulary received a huge boost today! And I am finished recording The Wisdom of the Egyptians! Final edits to be done and by the end of the week I'll upload it.
  3. I'm enjoying this! Found 'disaggregate' though it is not new to me. Shoenus is an ancient unit of measurement. Like a cubit.
  4. How about Sidereal? Can you tell I'm reading an ancient Egyptian manuscript translated in the 1920's? Just came across caduceus ....
  5. Pellucid Her pellucid intellect pierced his torpour. Your turn!
  6. Remind me not to dabble in those! But I'll keep them in mind for my characters. In my Leoshine books, she is drugged by her brother to make her seem magical and prophetic. Like the Oracle of Delphi. This information will help me explain her side effects. When she is given an antidote, the chemical acts like a chelating agent, binding to hard metals in her blood and creating a poison that her physicians have to race to her death. Thanks Alley, again!
  7. The fantasy and Sci-fi people get more words because they need to build worlds, but they still have to do it artfully. Thanks for this, Alley! It does help!
  8. I adore the Book of Job. The poetry is rich enough in English, I know it is mindblowing in Hebrew. I suggest you lift yourself above the semantics, the push and pull between heaven and earth, the details of who, what, when and how, (why is also miserably dangerous). Lift yourself into the Grace of God, listening to the mortals meander in the mud and still loving them. Listen to Job pushing through the mud into exalted prophesy : 23Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! 24That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! 25For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 26And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: 27Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg7aXEvCeXY Lift yourself into God's Throne Room when He says, (I have trouble choosing. Read all of 38-40!) 7 Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous? I often hear echos of The "Friends'" speeches in modern earthly platitudes. They have not grown old, nor have they gained any wisdom. They think without God. They try to think around God. God did not breathe every word of Scripture as advice. In fact, more of it is warning, or examples of misguidedness, than direction into rightness.
  9. Hanna Heath Writes what scares her
  10. "I will drown! No one shall save me!"
  11. Rules? Thou hast stilled my tongue and confused my thoughts. Mayhap, 'tis late of the clock and mine head dost a-nod. Gratitude unhindered be to thee for opening this playground. We shall invite and inveigle our friends to come and play herein!
  12. "I'm going to reach for that milk in the refrigerator. I'm going to pour it into the glass and see the refreshment dribble over the rim as I dream of my baseball team. They are going to win the championship and I am going to be carried on their shoulders." That became muddled very quickly! What is the future tense for the future?
