I’m not going to comment on Meredith McIver’s ‘confession’
that she was responsible for the hilarious Trump plagiarism gaffe, since if she
isn’t totally incompetent one must assume that she isn't the first junior to take
the fall for somebody else. I’m not going to comment on the Trump’s claim that
the whole sorry mess was good publicity for his campaign. I’m not going to
comment on the 36 hours Sean Spicer, Trump’s campaign strategist, spent denying
the charge of plagiarism, nor his assertion that the same words can be found in
My Little Pony. The whole thing
resembles a better than average TV sitcom because it’s mildly amusing to see people with egg on their
faces trying to get it off by scuba diving in a bowl of omelette mix.
Instead, let’s leave the final word to Ms McIver, who said:
I’m honoured to be
working for such a great family.
God bless America

I've never had money because I've never been driven by money. I received little formal education beyond the age of sixteen, which isn't such a bad thing since you get a different angle on life that way. Learning what you want and need to learn often reveals things that the system's road keeps hidden.
Anyone interested in viewing the availablity of my novel Odyssey or novella The Gift Horse can do so here.
To Be Retained...
...until death do re-unite or the Priestess return to Avalon.
Khalil Gibran on Children.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
OMAR KAYYAM ON REGRET.
The moving finger writes and, having writ, moves on. Nor all your piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all your tears wash out a word of it.
Herman Hess on Nobility
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self .
I have another blog called A Handful of Stories on which I've posted some of my short fiction. Most of it has been published by a variety of independent small press publishers, so somebody other than me must have thought it worth reading.
All the permanent pictures and some of the posted ones on this blog are my copyright. Most of them, however, are placed with a picture library which holds the licensing rights. I don't, therefore, have the legal right to grant permission to use them.
An Inhabitant of the Hungry Ghost Realm
This character appears in one of my short stories, and also in the novel. He's sadder than he looks, poor thing.
