Your whore ways are working: I'm off to buy a copy for a friend who just lost her beloved dog.

Love to you for your shameless, shameless ways.

Pet lovers suffering always tell me how much they loved and appreciated the book.


Thank you Elizabeth, Carol and Dr. Bob!


I couldn't use the Contact us feartue, so I will ask here.Would Open Myth Source be interested in mythology,, constructed in the late 1900 s and early 2000 s, that were a fiction background explanation of a new culture and its morals, ethics and philosophy. Stories that entertained and demonstrated the beliefs and creed of this new culture?The culture is called Narbarism and it failed to become on Mother Earth, other than in the heart, mind and life of one man. He is getting into his final years and yearns to have a place where he can leave his vision and work. Just in case there might come Others who would want to embrace his effort and add to it, for the sake of New Tribalism and the continuation of diverse forms of Nomadism.The myths, still in progress of development, entail unique proposals about God and Creation, ( Baby God ) the First Seven Dragons , the Elk Of Life , Onagar the First Great Teacher of Humanity and Scolos, the Father of the First Sythians . All a fun mix of perceived Truths and imagination, that could be of value to someone besides the author.If you think this site might be a place to quietly deposit these seeds for a new culture, please let me know.Respectfully Submitted, DAN 1 First Seed Bearer Of Narbarism


I am actually a fan of coutitnnity of design. The website matches the buisness card which mathes the blog as well as the invoice. The white through me off a bit. However, the blog is as much about words as it is marketing or pictures.


Welcome back, Siobhan, and congrats on the weiddng! I've missed your writing which is specially relevant to me now as I've returned to the world of academia to pursue my second BA. Cheers,Saro, voracious bookworm and nerd/geek
