Blue Ridge Parkway Sunset -- home sweet home
A stunning sunset overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains National Park from the Blue Ridge Parkway in Western North Carolina on a gorgeous summer evening. The southern Appalachian Mountains in the USA have such amazing scenery to take in, and these scenic landscapes are even more incredible at sunrise and sunset. photo by Dave Allen http://fineartamerica.com/featured/blue-ridge-parkway-sunset--the-great-blue-yonder-dave-allen.html

.5.The child was screaming for Maligant and Daffodil became desperate. She looked at the window and with a quickly muttered spell, created a small hole, just big enough to squeeze through. She turned around just in time to see Maligant hurl a ball of flame at her, and with a wave of her hand and a snap of her fingers, she was gone.

kindles don't have this kind of magic. Real books will always have relevance, there's nothing like the smell of an old book, or a new one for that matter. Gotta admit, I love the Kindle app for living on an island with a limited selection though. True Bibliophiles gobble up whatever they can get their hands on. Love to read an old book with history, though.

28 Totally Relatable Quotes About Books As much as i like kindles, I still love opening a new book for the fist time; the smell, the fresh pages...and an old used book...it is magic.
Carl Sagan Quote
But e-books have a magic of their own. Now, if someone could install the feel and smell of hard copy books - well, and maybe the illusion of shelves of books surrounding . . no doubt, the future will bring some of this to us. --EDK NOPE NOPE NOPE yeah SOME! i like the dust old book off an old shelf, that new book smell, that paper cut you get when turning the page. No Kindels can give you this, i want the real book, robots are our everything now can't we at least keep classic books? ~ME!
“We learned in class, were lectured to about wars and famines, ancient kings and queens, the habits of presidents. But the lectures were cursory. We needed to know what happened, because we were the well-bred daughters of men who could afford to educate us--but not why, or how.”

“I thought of my picture in the Castle. But what would future girls see when they looked at the photograph during their daily comings and goings, peering closely? Not the shade of my hair, rendered colorless. Not anything, really. Just a girl on a horse, like so many other girls.”

“People can lie about their childhoods, they can make up any sort of story and you must believe them, unless you were there with them, unless you saw for yourself. It is a burden to know a person so well. Sometimes a gift, but always a burden.”

“The urge was strong to tell my best friend, the only best friend I’d ever had, everything. But the stronger urge was to secret my pleasure away, keep it all to myself. Telling meant sharing, and sharing ruined everything.”

“And horses were always a part of my life, a blessing; taking comfort in them had always ben something I’d done by instinct, and it was instinct I never outgrew. I took pleasure in how good I was in the saddle, how well I knew my way around a horse. I was good at something in a way most people are never good at anything in their lives.”

A ghost rider in the mists...?
He moved like a dancer, which is not surprising; a horse is a beautiful animal, but it is perhaps most remarkable because it moves as if it always hears music. … Mark Helprin
I don't usually like horse photos because they're usually cliche but What a photo!
“Our yellow and blue scarves disappeared from our closets, along with out sweaters. We thawed. Too; everyone seemed prettier, nicer, fresher in the spring air.”
“But I discovered that I was very good at ignoring the unalterable. Sometimes it was as if God was watching, had narrowed his vision until Yonahlossee appeared, nestled in the mountains. I had wanted something very badly, and then I had gotten it, and the getting kept getting better.”
