Nostradamus & The Islamic Invasion of Europe – David Montaigne

If there was ever a book you need to read, right this minute, it is this one! With all the terrorist attacks going on in recent days, weeks, and months, this book is literally hot-off-the-press and could probably not be more relative than it is now.

Mr. Montaigne is very straightforward in his writing. It is full of facts, historical information, and details that most others would never take the time to look for. I learn a host of new facts with every book or blog post of his that I read.

As this book was just edited in the last two months, and released a mere couple of weeks ago, the information you are going to get may very well shock you. Most of us are watching 24 hour news channels, surfing the web, and using local news sources to keep up with everything that is going on.

If you like History, if you are concerned with the increase of terrorist attacks in the past two decades, if you are concerned about where our world is headed; you have to get this book in your hands as soon as possible. I cannot emphasize this enough. David Montaigne is honest enough to tell you from the start that he does not always get it right, but he gives you facts that are backed up by historical documentation and data. It is up to you what you want to do with this information.

In all fairness, I could have come up with about 100 of these questions. I figured I would start with this, and I cannot wait to see what your thoughts are! Let’s all play nice, as we really do not have to choose one or the other; Thank Goodness!!

Magic Realized: and Other Poems on the Human Spirit – Louis Alan Swartz

 

As someone who is not a huge fan of poetry, I once again found much joy, comfort, and peace in the poetry of Louis Alan Swartz. There is something here for everyone; and by everyone, I truly mean everyone. This is volume two to the book of poems titled Constructed of Magic. You can find that book here: Constructed of Magic paperback book

On to Magic Realized, and look at this beautiful cover!

As no two people will read the same poem in the same way, or take away the same meaning, it can be difficult to express what these poems mean to me. Surely they will mean something different to you? Of course they will; your experiences are different than mine! That is what makes poetry so meaningful, and important.

Some of my favorites?

He Loves. The things a man sees and experiences at different points throughout a day, and how they bring him joy, and love.

When We Played with Wooden Toys. A reminder of times much simpler, more than they could ever be now. Don’t we all want to go back, just one more time?

Street Scene. The bare honesty that we can only truly get from a child.

He Never Began to Live. Relatable. Seen this more times than I care to remember.

Drawing Out the Magnificence. Everyone should be required to read this. A little understanding and empathy goes a long way.

Creations. This poem made me feel warmth; I could picture, smell, and feel every description as if I were experiencing it right at that moment.

There are so many beautiful poems here, on life, love, living, family, and relationships. How to love, live, and let go when necessary.

Do you write or read poetry? Who is your favorite?

So About That Day My Library Flooded 😳

Yeah…. move into a house that someone flipped quick, you better check everything!


So my pipe to drain the bathtub came unhooked. Did not know it when I took a shower. But I certainly heard it when my daughter was draining her bath…

Thank goodness the huge area rug took up the water. I would have lost my brand new furniture; more books than the 40 I threw out; and my first edition Wizard of Oz books were down here; along with many autographed books.

I lost shoes, clothes, and precious books I loved to read.

Lesson learned!
