Show Excerpt



callow upstarts
those who dare advise
hindrances to them

callow upstarts
heedless of counsel
unfelled by the mace
uncut by the blade
young and rash

callow upstarts
they shall not avert
except the obvious


To the philosopher
thoughts and writings
are his close friends
he sees to needs
he then dotes on
work and study

To the philosopher
thoughts and writings
are his dear friends
exile?s release
from sycophants
wary of him

Author of the Day

Kirsten Fullmer
Kirsten Fullmer is an author who bid farewell to her job in the drafting industry and pursued her dream to write novels while traveling with her husband for his job. When she isn't writing, Fullmer loves tinkering with all kinds of crafts, including scrapbooking, cross stitching, crocheting and sewing. As our author of the day, Fullmer chats with us about how she fell in love with the Shabby Chic style, why she picked a small town as the backdrop for her books and talks about her writing habits.
