“’After my name day feast, I’m going to raise a host and kill your brother myself. That’s what I’ll give you, Lady Sansa. Your brother’s head.’
A kind of madness took over her then, and she heard herself say, ‘Maybe my brother will give me your head.’”

Poem of the Week (PotW): “A Dream Within A Dream” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

“Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow– You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone?… Continue reading Poem of the Week (PotW): “A Dream Within A Dream” ~ Edgar Allan Poe


Updates to the Blog

I have been neglecting to post very often. I’m sorry about that, so I will try to set up a schedule.

Here are some updates to weekly posts:

  • The categories have been changed and updated. What you see on the side is what I currently have for my categories.
  • I know I haven’t written a Review/Discussion in months. I promise to post something this weekend.
  • Word of the Week (WotW) is being brought back and will be maintained weekly. My goal is to post it every Wednesday. If I fail to post on Wednesday, it will be up by Thursday.
  • I’m featuring a new weekly post. It’s important to improve our memories, so I’m memorizing a poem every Monday. We will begin referring to this as the Poem of the Week (PotW). If it’s short (e.g. haiku), I may work on memorizing two for that week. You may choose to memorize them as well. In the PotW I will present my thoughts and/or analysis of the poem. If you have any suggestions for poems, you may suggest them in the comments section of each PotW post.

I have some ideas for posts, so I want you to vote on these polls:

Alright, you have two weeks from today to answer these polls and to comment on this. I will post another update to let you know what won out. Thank you to those who have continued to follow my blog, even though I haven’t posting often.
