I’ve done this tagged meme before, but since my favorites list is ever-changing, I thought I’d do it again. List 10 books that have stayed with you long after you read them. Don't think too much about the exercise. Be spontaneous. You’re supposed to tag other people here. I don't tag people. Just participate if … Continue reading Books that Stay

The Spark, the Shade, and a Mutant
I have a gift. If someone hands me a lump of muddy rock, I see a galaxy of diamonds in my hand, shining and revolving and shattering through the limitations left behind by the earth that birthed a lump of sullied mineral.
