New worlds open
With each page perused.
A welcome holiday
The cares of life left behind,
Imagination paints the scene,
A pen illuminates the details
Travelling through time and space to wonder.

    Hi Sue! I love your Etheree. What a beautiful and true depiction of what it is to read a book! ❤ xo


  11. Awesome use of alliteration, “Travelling through time” is a brilliant and powerful end!


  12. Nice. Indeed, books are actual magic! That’s not fantasy; that’s fact! If you like fantasy, you might enjoy these tales of two mythical tribes: The Veritas (who value truth, love & cooperation) and the Cupiditas (who value power, greed, & cruelty). The story begins as the leader/shaman of the Veritas seeks an eventual replacement so she devises a series of increasingly subtle trials that mainly test empathy.
