Om migsince feeling is first
e.e. cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis
"The vestigial tale"
By Joel Achenbach
Washington Post Staff Writer

Story-loving isn't just culture; it's biology. The human brain has evolved in such a way as to enable the construction and comprehension of narratives.

We experience our lives in narrative form. Steven Pinker, Harvard's guru of evolutionary psychology, says our interest in stories comes in part from a "thirst for gossip" -- we need insider information about our social world. Narratives give gossip shape and meaning. And stories let us experiment, safely, with novel social arrangements that might otherwise blow up in our face.

Pinker on fiction: "Fiction may be, at least in part, a pleasure technology, a co-opting of language and imagery as a virtual reality device which allows a reader to enjoy pleasant hallucinations like exploring interesting territories, conquering enemies, hobnobbing with powerful people and winning attractive mates."

Om mit bibliotekMy library contains a high percentage of older Harlequin Presents romances. In the 1980s and 1990s, some HP writers created heros who were alphas without being "alph-holes" and heroines who were intrinsically feminine. I value skilled craftsmanship and character building, keen emotional drama and the rapture of an HEA within a 2 hour reading experience. I hope to recommend books that especially please me. If you find that you share my taste, you will discover wonderful writers and passionate stories!

I use tags from "TV Tropes" web site, and occasionally the review site that referred me to the book.
