My main blog: Ramblings generally focuses on telling a story via photography and words. These stories generally center around family, nature, and church although sometimes just about life in general. I also have a blog entitled Fingerprints. I post less frequently in Fingerprints. It serves as a catch all of anything that does not go in my Ramblings blog including memes, quizzes, and reports on books and movies.

The road awaits
Time doesn't
The road beckons
Time steps forward

Will we move
In step with time?
Will we step forward
Shaping our time?

Will we take time
To see the present?
Will we explore the past
And understand our heritage?

Will we laugh?
Will we wonder?
Will we touch?
Will we feel?

Time flies on
We have choices
Shall we go fast?
Shall we go slow?

We shall go forward
But we will choose the pace
We may dance with all our heart
Or bathe ourselves in a setting sun

Cartomancy, Book 2 of The Age of Discovery

Tonight, I finished reading Cartomancy by Michael A. Stackpole. It is Book 2 of The Age of Discovery series. It is a complex story - one in which initially I had a hard time keeping track of all the characters. But I have not read A Secret Atlas which is Book 1 in the series and that may have contributed to this situation. However, by the time I got into the second half of the book and the closer I got towards the end, the more entwined and fascinated I became by the story. It is a novel of the fantasy genre and at least to me shows some of the futility of excessive ambition and wars.

Hi, san nakji. I often enjoy fantasy and science fiction. But I don't read broadly in that field. I like to read a variety of types of literature including historical fiction, biographies, and some adventure/mystery novels.
