Currently I'm writing two novels simultaneously - one at a time has become too routine.

The fifth book in the Heilsing cases - The Darkness Within and What Dreams May Follow, a sequel to my first novel which lead me to the book that I am currently reading.

Never Stop Dreaming - I'm having to reread it to keep all of the minor character's names consistent.

Love ya,

Sally

I recently finished the book Shesus. It is a little hokey but a great story line about the future. Though it is not a story about transgender, it has a good gender flair. Over all a good read at a discount table price.

Johnathan Livingston Seagull - Richard Bach

So many parallels do I see in this short story, it's so simple, it's beautiful, it's wonderful to bring a tear to my eye.

Be free, and love...

"Goat Husbandry" McKensey

It's a good look at early husbandry in England from the 40's to the 50's, containing a good bit of amusing and practical advice.

Hugs,

I recently bought "Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars" by Nathalia Holt and I have started it. So far it's an enjoyable read about the women who worked behind the scenes but performed a vital role in the space program.

But then I saw Ben Bernanke's recent book at the library "The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath" about how the government and financial institutions dealt with the recession of 2007. I found this to be really interesting and it is well written.

I am currently reading 3 different books. The main one I'm reading is Vengeance In Death by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). It's part of the "In Death" series (a romantic suspense about a cop in the future). 

I'm also reading Shadow Play by Iris Johanson.

And an ebook called Suborn Rising: Beneath The Fall by Aaron Safronoff (I am not sure if this is in any other form).

Not including these 3 books, I have read 33 books in all of 2016.

Hhmmm....Not currently reading any real books  but I'm reviewing as many journal articles relating to the "Cloward & Piven Strategy" (including its tactical applications, current & historic) as I can manage w/o making a 56 mile drive to a university library.

The Silent Deep - The Royal Navy Submarine Service Since 1945 - Peter Hennessy & James Jinks.

I have a bit of a militaristic background and have a fascination with submarines. I have over thirty books covering their history, technical and use.

It makes a change from my detective novels (especially Agatha Christie).

The Imp Series by Debra Dunbar. I'm on book four now. It's a great fantasy series about an Imp who has been hiding out here on Earth as a human for forty years, which is a really long time for demons because the Angels are always hunting them down and killing them. Since she is an Imp she loves all manner of practical jokes, causing trouble, and generally being naughty but she's learned to tone it down to not get caught. Her exposure to humans has also changed her in some ways so that now she actually is beginning to have some very human-like emotions which is where the author gets a good portion of her plot intrigues from!

I actually just finished a book by Dennis Weatley called "The Devil Rides Out", about a group of friends who must rescue another friend who has become entangled with a band of unscruppeless satanists in 1930's England. In the process of rescuing their friend, they discover that the satanist priest is trying to locate a talisman in order to aquire new black magic powers, which would result in plunging the world into an apocalyptic war. Their task now becomes not mearly saving their friend, they must kill the priest. Their pursuit of the priest takes them through the world of the living and the dead, and pits them against the Devil himself.?

 

Next, I might start my yearly reading of "The Lord of the Rings". Obviously a favorite!?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

      The bottom eye portion is not the important and can cause most of the issues. The darker stuff tends to drift downwards anyways.    
    • Carolyn Marie
      I have never worn lace, so I can't answer your second question, Michelle.  The answer to the first question is, yes.  Which is one reason I've always worn short hair wigs.  They still get hot, but not as bad as long hair, and you can get them a lot shorter than mine.   Natural hair wigs won't be as hot, but I have heard that they are harder to take care of, more expensive (not that synthetic is cheap, mind you) and don't last as long.  My mono-filament wigs have lasted me around five years.  I have two, so I can switch them out frequently.   Carolyn Marie

      'LOL!  Yeah, that's a tough one, Magnolia.  I had help from my son's GF when I started out.  Lots of Youtube videos out there, and practice, practice, practice.  I don't try fancy stuff like "smokey eye."  I use a liquid liner, a heavier line on the upper lid, and thin line carefully applied below the lower lid, and no mascara.  That simplifies things.  I gave up on pencils long ago.  They just don't work for me.
    • Michelle F
      Ok... I am bald. LoL I live in the deep desert. Cochella Valley's Summer temps average 110°. Last year it hit 122° in June.   I have heard that full wigs are very hot. Is it same with lace?

      I hope they come to a satisfactory settlement that includes good policy for students.

      Thanks so much. I think I really do need to talk to a therapist. I dont believe I have any gender therapists near me. I have to travel a ways. That's okay though. I'm willing to do so if it helps me figure out who I am. I just feel lost. I'm hoping that by going through the threads and talking with people here will also help me.

      Welcome.  I certainly understand the feeling of the coming and then going of my gender issues.  I am a "bit" older and learned at an early age to suppress any desire i had to change gender.  Like you i got married and had a family.  I simply got on with life.  From time to time the need came back.  I finally just let go and transitioned.  Oddly i haven't had any urge to return.  There are certainly things i still enjoy that i learned as a male.  I'm  finally finding acceptance of all of me and am comfortable in myself. It took time.  Being here has helped a great deal.  Therapy did as well perhaps simply because i was able to be open with someone who didn't see me as a freak.   It is great that you the support of your husband.   Try to relax and enjoy the journey.   You are not alone.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I can't remember NOT crying during movies...   I even tried when Luke found out Darth Vader was his Dad and cut his hand off... And when Lia told Han, Luke was her brother I had to stop the DVD. I was in a complete sobbing and gasping, emotional blubbering idiot...LoL   Oh yeah... And especially when Ron said Hermione's name when he was in hospital after the poison he drank at Prof. Slughorn's place...
