The Many Lives of a Bibliophile

I have been Thea Philopater, praying to my mother, ruler of the heavens, to preserve my memoirs, my precious words, the record of my life. To protect them from falling into the hands of my rivals, and the very memory of me from becoming forever lost. I have swelled with pride, watching him with fire in his heart, join the rank of swift, skillful fighter strong, wise leader of the forest dwellers. He spread his valor, compassion, and bravery to all he encountered. I have cast spells and enchantments, mixed potions, rode dragons, and freed those who were innocent.

Unit 8, Archaeological Exercise 8

Option #2: Museum displays I visited the Rochester Museum and Science Center about thirty minutes away. It’s a one-building museum, but has four floors, including the basement/ground floor mezzanine cafe. The first floor has the Adventure Zone that has a simulation ride, a play tunnel system, weather simulator, small rock wall, amongst other things. The second floor contains the historical exhibits such as the Native Americans of New York and the ‘Underground Railroad’. It also has a section for a travelling exhibit. The third floor contains the more interactive and science exhibits such as the ‘Electricity Theatre&rsq

Never Give Up

Never Give Up

Love is far too special and rare to ever give up on. When it comes to love, there is no such thing as it being ‘too late’ for anything. Although I admit to feeling/thinking this way on many occasions. I am guilty of giving up on it in the past. As well as with certain friendships and I regret it deeply. Love is far too precious and is worth every risk it presents. It is not worth giving into the fear it presents. If you gave in and gave up, you could be giving up on a lifetime of true happiness for, not only yourself, but also the person you love. I understand if the person has moved on and is in love with another, but that is no

Prayer to the Great Goddess, Hestia

O, Mighty Hestia, daughter of the great Titans, Kronos and Rhea, sister of the Queen and King of the Gods, Zeus and Hera. Tender of the Hearth, nurturer of the familial flame, Great Goddess, who presides over family and home, look after the ones I treasure in my heart, their families and loved ones. Watch over the as the sleep, as they dream. Help them keep their families together, help them stay strong. Ease their pain in times of sorrow and misery. Allow hope to grow, joy to last. I ask nothing for myself, but for them, for the ones I hold most dear, even if we are not close, even if the feelings are not returned. Even if we never speak aga

Completely... Alone.

You can’t understand why I have trouble being optimistic? Let me list to you, the reasons why: In the beginning. Age 1-5: A loving father who dotes upon his newborn daughter and loves and cares for his wife more than anyone else? What I would give to have one like that. Mine threw me into chairs and emotionally abused both me and my mother and hardly attempted to be in my life. So off we went, my mother and I, to live with her parents. I was quite happy to be with them. Had great fun running all around the camp that they were and still are the caretakers of. Though they greatly attempted to expose me to their religion, I could never be

You Will Forever Be In My Heart

You Will Forever Be In My Heart

I search your face, for the slightest sign, the slightest whisper. I drink in every word you speak and stare into your beautiful eyes. Each moment is breath-taking. Each moment is heart-breaking. And I wonder, whatever happened? What happened to that love we once shared? Has it left you? Or is it still there, softly singing in your heart? You left. I cried. We both moved on. I found someone new, though I always wonder the true effect, upon that sweet heart beating in your chest, of your old love and good friend finding each other. Did you hurt? Did you wish it was you holding me in your arms again? Or were you unaffected

An Endangered Species

An Endangered Species

Highly endangered by countless amounts of ignorant humans, Who fear and destroy that which they do not know. Though there are a few grounded people in this world, Who wish to save one of Earth's treasured Spirits. People with wonderful hearts and strong spirits of their own, That will fight to protect what they love. We may not be able to fore-see the future, But let us hope we shall save these astounding creatures. Allow them to flourish and to live in peace with us humans. Protect the wolves, honour their Spirits!

Six Month Anniversary Poem

Half a year together now, On a supposedly unlucky day, Though a very lucky one for us. We've had many wonderful times together, And many more to look forward to. You mean the world to me, And I treasure each moment we have.

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!

‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt, Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart. The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there. Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones While visions of inspiration across all time zones Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be, At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree! When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter, I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter, “I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too. I don’t have my laptop, an

You May Say I'm An Artist...

Share  |  Archive By techgnotic (https://www.deviantart.com/techgnotic) I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today? “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, in the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…” ur own epoch is one of the tec

Navigating Uncharted Waters

Wandering the unknown sea, lost and alone. I know naught which way to turn, On this dark and dreary night. A left, or a right, or all ahead full? Shall we raise the sails, and fly our colours, And let the wind carry us under its wings? Aye Mateys! Prepare to sail onward. Let us see, what adventures await? We have been sailing for months now. Not a speck of land have we seen. Are we doomed to be forever lost, In this vast world of unpredictability? A world that is, one minute, as calm as a clam, The next, being a rising pool of cold and wet death. Wait! What is that the look-out shouts from above? "Land-ho, land-ho! Captain we a

Telling the Truth

Telling the Truth

I'm sick of people assuming that when someone tells the truth and doesn't sugarcoat things, that they are a bad person. Or when they lose their temper sometimes. No, it makes you human. Completely human. Nothing else. People hate hearing the truth, so they act ridiculous towards the people who speak it. Fear is ridiculously strong... I've had people sugarcoat things to me my whole life, and it's only on very rare occasions that they are direct and straightforward, so I know from experience how much less pain the later causes. Yeah, it can cut quicker and cause people to get pissed off, but that is only because it brings out their fears. Huma
