Lindsay Periera, REDIFF.COM (INDIA) Pick of the Weekend "One major area of difficulty in the electronic book area of publishing has been bibliographic control. The Muses The Muses "[The Muses] are all of one mind, their hearts are set upon song and their spirit is free from care. He is happy whom the Muses love. For though a man has sorrow and grief in his soul, yet when the servant of the Muses sings, at once he forgets his dark thoughts and remembers not his troubles. Such is the holy gift of the Muses to men." ~Hesiod~
Superstitions Old Wives Tales Beliefs & Misconceptions A-L Superstitions: old wives tales, folklore, bizarre beliefs, taboos, omens, lucky & unlucky things Superstitions A - L recommended: Cassell's Dictionary of Superstitions 101 American Superstitions : Understanding Language and Culture through Superstitions Morrigan by Honor Johnson This article is about the Goddess Morrigan, whom archaeological evidence now tells us, dates back beyond the Copper age, and was the dominant Goddess of Europe called the Great Goddess. When I read the material about Morrigan, I suspected that there was more to her story, and that she was a transporter between life and death; a birth Goddess and a death Goddess in that she moved the soul through these cycles. Later writing seems to concentrate on her connection to death, but comes to view her, as warrior societies often do, in a way connected to their own needs (power, energy, enchantment and warfare). Some writing of course does not, she is seen as a healer, the protector of the land and the person who brings Arthur to power. I went through literary accounts of her to give a fuller picture of her, one that is I think more meaningful to many people, including myself.

I was so concerned with his feelings... Perhaps I was afraid of upsetting him. I guess I didn't know what to make of my feelings.

The Little Prince Antoine de Saint-Exupery Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Illustrated by author To Léon Werth I ask the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grown-up. I have a serious reason: he is the best friend I have in the world. I have another reason: this grown-up understands everything, even books about children.

Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde He did not wear his scarlet coat, For blood and wine are red, And blood and wine were on his hands When they found him with the dead, The poor dead woman whom he loved, And murdered in her bed. He walked amongst the Trial Men In a suit of shabby grey; A cricket cap was on his head, And his step seemed light and gay; But I never saw a man who looked So wistfully at the day. I never saw a man who looked With such a wistful eye Upon that little tent of blue Which prisoners call the sky, And at every drifting cloud that went With sails of silver by.
