Come, brothers three, accost the coast
And welcome Lir’s resplendent host
Such woeful welcome from a fateful morn
Will never bring to him bright morrow
Unhappy sire, doomed, forlorn
Left ever to mourn in hopeless sorrow.
…Eva arrived at the House of Red-Bove and said, “Lir no longer loves you. He will not entrust his children to you lest you harm them.”
Red-Bove did not believe her.
He sent messengers to Sidhe Finnaha and when they arrived and explained their errand Lir was startled.
He felt sure that Eva had destroyed his children and set off for Red-Lake with a heavy heart.
Lir and his attendants travelled swiftly until they reached the shore of Lake Devra.
The four white swans which swam there saw the cavalcade approaching and drew close to the shore.

We had almost stopped there on our way to Wales. The suggestion had been made, but for some reason I had been reluctant to turn aside from our road west, for what might be no more than a walk in the woods. Not that we ever expected it to be that simple, but the mind goes its own way when looking for excuses. Especially when the inner voice is silently and inexplicably putting its foot down.
Consciousness dons blinkers, failing to see things that should be obvious, but which cannot become clear until the story has unravelled. It was as if some guiding spark of intent was aware of a chain of events spanning time, a sequence that had already begun, but had not yet reached a point where we could be allowed to see. And if that sounds confusing to read, imagine what it feels like to be caught…

“I don’t like it,” she said. “What is it anyway?”
He shrugged. “No idea. Some old building. A relic.”
“Doesn’t look old. Looks brand new to me.”
“Aw, who cares? Let’s move it!”
She hung back, still undecided. “It’s too open, just grass,” she said. “They’ll see us.”
“Look.” He took her hands and put on his patient expression, the one he’d used for… “Look, Jan, we have no choice. You see the shadow on the horizon? That’s the sea. There’s a sub waiting for us. We’re almost there!”
She hated that face. And the tone of voice. She wasn’t a child. He shouldn’t speak to her like he spoke to… She stared at the dark mass on the horizon. It was just darkness. How could he imagine there was anything called ‘safety’ in that wilderness?

Reblogged from Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life:
I am delighted to say that Volume Two of What’s in a Name: Stories of Life and Romance is now live on Amazon and shortly on Smashwords in EPub.
Also in by the end of the summer there will be a print version of both volumes together with a total of 37 stories.
The theme is still related to the names that we are given.. In the first volume the stories were about people who were given names that were already famous or had significance within a family that they felt they needed to live up to.
In this volume the names are ordinary but their owners are anything but.
There are 16 stories and a bonus story to promote a new collection of stories in 2018.
About What’s In a Name – Volume Two.

Seeking Nature’s golden gift
Others seek only to serve
I love bumblebees. Their apparently lazy flight fills summer gardens with a constant subliminal hum, yet their presence assures the garden’s survival as the pollinate the plants. It is a sadness to know that their numbers are in decline, largely through mankind’s own desire to control Nature on an industrial scale. Ironically, their industry saves Industry billion of pounds every year.
Many fear these furry creatures because of their sting, though only the females are so armed. They are peaceful creatures and will not attack unless they or their nests are threatened. I can relate to that.
Find out more about bumblebees, their role in our lives and the way in which they are threatened at the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
