“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.” ― Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

This is my 700th post.  I’m glad it’s about love and from one of Neil Gaiman’s points of view. That’s the beauty of being a writer.  You get to have, with absolute passion and conviction, so many different points of view — one or more for each character created.   I hope to have 700 or more posts (and at least that many points of view).  *smile*

Cheers to a great weekend!

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ―Robert Fulghum

=) SURPRISE! (=

Happy Saturday!  In case you are surprised to see a Gem today, please visit our new page ÉOWYN.  Every day for four weeks, from October 14 to November 10, we’ll be creating new pages for the journey from Bag End to Rivendell made by Frodo and companions in J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved trilogy, The Lord of the Rings.  For the first three of these weeks, this will coincide with a walking challenge, walking through Earth and tracking miles on Middle Earth, being hosted on Kindspring.org from October 14 to November 3.  All welcome.   This began in on under1000skies in September 2015 and was meant to be at least a yearly event but life got in the way as it does sometimes.  Once this current journey and all the milestones are finished, we’ll do this at least once a year until all 18 walks through Middle Earth (17 official and one I’m winging completely) are finished.
