I am now reading Kushiel's Dart, a book I'd been eyeing at B&N for a while. Fortunately, Del bought it and the sequel, so all I had to do was borrow them. I'm having a difficult time putting the first down! Extremely well written and intriguing, very unique. The protagonist is an anguissette - a masochistic nympho! The very warp threads of the novel are new. And the suspense and mystery are well played, with enough of a breeze to blow the curtains aside often enough to keep you from skipping ahead. The character development seems a little weak, but that may simply be because it is first-person but not omniscient. So the only thoughts you hear are Phedre's.
Slight updates to website, in myart, authors, and people.
Breakthrough to Joy tonight was very very deep. About the breaking judgements, sub- and conscious, that I've made against people and myself. I realized that I have a lot more dirt than I remembered, and I'm really glad to be dumping it. I feel already more peaceful, and I think my faith has grown.
I finally decided what tattoo I want. I want a full-back tattoo, in purple, blue and green, and I want it to be a version of the waterstar. Ow. I wince. I'm no anguissette. I think I have the guts though, once I perfect the design, get the money, and find an artist I trust.
