Inteachán – Book Five: The Tallest Tower Crane 5: 28 ‘no more doubt to declare!’


Gilly gulped. Iseult looks strained and shook her head slightly. Gilly spoke anyway.‘She is never coming back, dear friend.’Gilly paused.‘I know how much she meant to you but Inteachán is lost forever.’Iseult watched Mac, expecting him to crumple again like he did before. Gilly blushed, pained to have said such a thing to his closest friend. Mac smiled.‘Means to me,’ he replied. ‘Means to us. To the world.’Mac patted his friend on the knee.‘I doubted her once,’ he said. ‘I declared my doubt to the world and she still returned.’Mac turned to Iseult.‘I have no more doubt to declare!’Original link

Terror bites my stomach


If you can not see this chirbit, listen to it here https://chirb.it/DJ4ke1 I’ve taken my eyes off of the child for a mere moment, and now—he’s gone! Either that, or he’s hiding. I run frantically through the yard, all around the perimeter, then in and out of the back gate in search of him. I bend down this way and that to check if his legs can be seen behind the bushes, if the Disneyland logo of his t-shirt peeks out, by any chance, between the branches. All the while, I keep calling his name at the top of my lungs. “Ready or not, Timmy, here I come!”At last, “Okay, you win, Timmy!” I scream. “Where are you?”There is this sinking feeling—not in my heart exactly but somewhere lower, in my gut...

Accident or murder? The mysterious death of Leslie Howard


Leslie HowardLeslie Howard was a superstar actor of his day. The son of Jewish immigrants from Hungary he was born in London in 1893 and served during the First World War, he was mustered out of the army a few weeks before the Battle of the Somme began in 1916 as he was suffering from shell shock. It was actually his doctor who suggested acting as a therapy little knowing that Howard would go on to international fame, particularly for his roles in Pygmalion and Gone With The Wind. When the Second World War broke out the English actor gave up his lucrative Hollywood contract (including his share of the box-office takings for Gone With The Wind) and returned home to see what he could do to fur...

Inteachán – Book Five: The Tallest Tower Crane 5: 27 ‘so lost and so alone’


‘We worried too,’ said Iseult. ‘You were so lost and so alone and nothing we could do would make a difference.’‘But that is exactly it,’ said Mac excitedly. ‘There was nothing that either of you could do other than be here when I finally managed to escape myself.’The candle flickered slightly, as if listening.‘Imagine what would have happened had I come back to find that there was no one left waiting for me?’Mac stood up.‘That is what we now need to do for Inteachán. Rather than trying to find her, we just need to be ready for when she finds her way back to us.’Original link

Pride Month & Speaking with Love in Our Hearts

Hi everyone.  I hope everyone out there is safe given the predicaments we have found ourselves in during this year.  A Pandemic and then mass riots/racial tension is not what I think any of us had in mind for 2020.I have to say how sad I am to see such division in America.  It makes me sick.  Seeing national monuments being trashed by rioters is hard to stomach. I never thought I would live to see our country be torn apart like this.  I know my ancestors probably said the same thing, and they made it through.  However, with the invention of instant technologies, I think we are at a disadvantage.  While the internet and social media are a force for good a lot of the times, it has also become ...

The Murder Hobos – Episode 89 – Forever Family

The music followed Thia out to the balcony. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to celebrate Pan’s wedding to Eli. For now, though, everything overwhelmed her. All she wanted to do was breathe some of the cool night air and calm her mind.“So, Thia,” Jinnaari said from behind her, “how are things with you?”She laughed as she turned around. “Still up to your paladin mind tricks?”He shrugged, “What makes you think I ever stopped?” Moving closer, he sat down on one end of a stone bench. “We’re family, Thia. I know that face. Talk to me.”She sat down, facing the party. Pan danced with his husband in the center of the revelry. They looked beyond happy. “It’s over, isn’t it?” Her voice cracked a little....

Injuries, wounds and healing… information to aid your accuracy.

waiting
 This is far from my normal ‘Rambling’, but…After reading several books over the last few months I have realised the need for authors to portray far more realistic accounts of their victim’s injury and healing processes.Getting this wrong not only disrupts the believability flow of the story but often wrong-foots the reader’s perception regarding the course of the true timeline.How many times do we such inaccuracies represented in ‘blockbuster’ movies? One moment the protagonist is beaten to a pulp and cannot stand, the next he is running after the perpetrator of a crime with nothing more than a slight limp in his left leg… oh, now it’s his right leg… no left again.Of course, when our hero t...

China Isn’t Letting a Pandemic Go to Waste


Today, ForeignCorrespondent is reposting a commentary by Victor Davis Hanson, historian, columnist, and professor. In this post, he demonstrates how China is taking advantage of the global pandemic to further undermine democracy in Hong Kong, bully its Asian neighbors, and thumb its nose at the United States. No more nice-guy façade.By VICTOR DAVIS HANSONGeorge Floyd was killed in Minneapolis last week when a police officer used brutally excessive force to arrest him. It was the latest in a string of high-profile cases nationwide in which citizens, most of them African Americans, died from reckless police force. Once again, protests over police brutality turned violent and rioting ensued.The...

Inteachán – Book Five: The Tallest Tower Crane 5: 26 ‘no days left to endure’


Iseult smiled.‘I know what you mean, Gilly, but normal for every child now means living on the streets with or without their family and chipping away at a landmark all day with a broken chisel until it is time to collapse again like it was the day before and will be until there are no days left to endure.’Gilly nodded.Mac looked at his friends.‘I have made a life of doubting and disbelieving and my recent errors regarding these infernal beings have shaken me to my very core.’Mac looked worried.‘For a while there by the canal I feared that I was falling too far inside myself to ever make it back.’Original link
