What You Reading?

Freedom by Ambrose Bierce

I'm going to post this with very little comment from me other than to welcome you to this month's theme: FREEDOM. The reason for posting this should be fairly obvious. And by way of commentary, I shall simply give you a couple of definitions written by Ambrose Bierce himself: Freedom, n. Exemption from the stress of authority in a beggarly half dozen of restraint's infinite multitude of methods. A

Rain In Summer (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Keeping in April's theme being "Rainfall" and National Poetry Month, I'd like to share another rain-based poem. This time it's in the romantic tradition and one that is more just a celebration of the imagery of rain without any deeper meaning. Well, that's not fair there is a bit of a deeper theme that is introduced but it's fairly tame in my opinion. I prefer just reveling in the

What You reading? Roundup (2/08/21 thru 2/21/21)

I Love to Read. At any given time I am reading one or two books and any number of comics. When I was a kid whenever my grandfather saw me with a book in my hand he’s say, “Hey bud, what you reading?” And I’d tell him with childish gusto and enthusiasm. And then he’s tell me what he was reading as well. I want to share what I’m reading with you and maybe you will share what you’re reading with me.
