Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Teaser & 1st Paragraph

Lifting the Wheel of Karma . . . .

Hosted at Bibliophile by the Sea
Every Tuesday, she'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of her current read. Why don't you join us?

The harrowing landscape was a disorienting mix of darkness and hypnotic light that appeared to ignore the rules governing its path, causing the eye to question what it saw. Joseph, aged seventeen, ran through lush vegetation in the entangled forest as he wielded a sword in his left hand. The sword was of a thin steel with a curve that extended from the handle to the tip. Carved into the sides of the steel were ornate designs of unknown origin. The handle was made of ivory and was capped with a slightly oversized gold tip to make sure the pinky finger was held in place when in use--which it surely was to be now.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read Open to a random page
2. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page ~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!~ make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
3. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


"There are more important things than walking, you know?" Madhu said.

"Like what?" Joseph asked.

"Like kissing," Madhu replied while smiling at him.

WOW, the fist 2 sentences really drew me in, but then when I read about the sword, I wondered whether this one would be for me??

Hope you enjoy it and thanks for participating.

Happy new Year
