A literary soul safari

Some years ago, I went to this remote cottage near Manali, tucked in the lap of the valley, far from any village. The place was ordinary and the lifestyle simple. 414 more words


Brothers and Sisters Are We

I just finished a thought-provoking book called The Sibling Society,* written by Robert Bly, a poet and translator. The main premise of the book is that American society and culture are on a downward trend, and the author illustrates his point using examples from poetry and classical mythology from all over the world.** Bly argues that modern humans, because of their cultural and social environment, are no longer becoming true “adults,” but that they are stuck in a permanent adolescent stage, hence leading to a society of squabbling siblings instead of a world where mature communication and honest intellectual debate abound. 779 more words

Michelle reblogged this on Reading, Drinking and Dancing with a Chaser of Snark and commented:

I've been a fan of Bella Juarez's for several years, having become addicted to her "Black Ops Brotherhood," series. She was one, of a select few authors, who featured strong Latinas as heroines, in a sea of "New Adult," early-20-somethings mania. Bella's characters were unique in that they were "Everywomen." Many were middle-aged, yet in the prime of life. They were intelligent, confident, and fully embraced themselves as sexual beings...with some scorchingly sexy, strong men at their sides. I am looking forward to the "Dominant Persuasion" Anthology, and "Out of Touch," in particular, because it is based in my stopping grounds of the Tampa Bay area. I'm interested in how Bella handles the dynamic between a Domme and her gentleman love, who just happens to be a Dom. It should make for an erotically good time! Can't wait!
