Two Beers & A Book

Finally reading Game Of Thrones by George R. R. Martin after all this time! This first volume was published in 1996. The reading is going slowly due to my ridiculous work schedule, but these two DuClaw brews certainly make it smooth. "Double Black Lightning"; an American black ale, and "X-1" which is an Imperial chocolate porter. Brewery located in Abingdon, MD.

and this is why i drove home
this way
wedge of geese
flying from the open sky on the left
across the black tree limb sky
on the right, and on
on and on

Guest Blogger: Kay's Dream

Sandi and I were shopping for Christmas gifts for each other when we happened upon a shop in Manassas that was full of occult items. Things from different religions and cultures were everywhere. We fit right in there. There were colored feather necklaces that invoked the things you wanted in life and statues and medicinal herbs everywhere.
