My Random Musings

It has been a month since I got to Sri Lanka and I hardly got my camera out. I decided it was time to charge the battery and head out and capture some images. Today (Sunday) is Thai Pongal,  the harvest festival celebrated by the Tamil Hindu’s as aThank you to the Sun God for agriculture abundance.

It seemed like a good day to grab my camera and head out to the Hindu Temple, where most come dressed in colorful attires to celebrate this festival. So here are some pictures I captured during this festival.

Rosco’s December Magic-a short story

Rosco's Reading Room

A Rosco the Rascal Tale for Christmas
by Shana Gorian© December 2015. All rights reserved.

This story is available for members of Wattpad and Movellas published in chapter-version if you or your little one prefers.
PS. For ages 6+. (Contains no holiday spoilers!)

It was Rosco’s first Christmas with the McKendrick family. Late in the evening on Christmas Eve, ten-year old James, seven-year-old Mandy, and Mom and Dad were all in bed.

Rosco, their large German shepherd lay near the front door, tossing and turning on his doggy bed. The lights on the Christmas tree had been shut off. The fire in the hearth had burned out. But Rosco was wide awake.

Rosco lay thinking anxiously about what Mandy had told him—that tonight, someone named Santa Claus would be visiting the house while everyone slept. Mandy had instructed her dog not to bark at Santa, because she wouldn’t want Rosco…

There Are Monsters In The Closets (BLW Contributor)

x no monogatari

You know I always wondered if some of the crazy stories that people tell when in college were true when I was younger. While I cannot speak for those people who love to exaggerate their stories, I can only speak for my own personal encounters(for the most part). However, it has come to my attention as to just what exactly you can find when there is a lack of parental supervision. From ridiculous drug abuse to an absurd amount of sexual endeavors. Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Mr.X and once again I have yet another ridiculous tale of the random happenings in my life. So without further adieu, let us begin the story.

Hello ol' friends, it's been awhileHard to believe 

That once again it has comeAnother snow fall, this winter's first Yes, again it did appearSo gentle and so pure It covered Fall's browned leaves With tiny petite white fluff.
Our favorite magical time of year,Yes, it would have been more dearIf the ones who knew me bestCould have stood along beside meThough in my heart and mindThey forever will be near.

Ahh yes, the Holiday’s are once again upon us.

How many times have we read the words?

Through our lives, so many people, friends and family

have joined us in our traditional celebrations.

And the years go by….

You wake up one day, with only beautiful memories

of those that have now passed.

How do you handle it?

Well you know what I am going to say,

THE CHOICE IS ALWAYS UP TO YOU!

As for me, I raise…

RIP Carrie Fisher (BLW Contributor)

The Vintage Toy Advertiser

So sad to hear that Carrie just passed away. I know she did plenty of other great work but she’ll always remain in my heart for her role as Princess Leia. Whenever I saw her interviewed on TV she was always funny and seemed a likeable person. My thoughts go out to her family and loved ones.

How many times? (BLW Contributor)

writing-lust

​How many times have you pretended to be strong when you were so fragile and weak

How many times were you called moron or a freak

How many times has life shut you to your knees

How many times were you left alone when you needed someone to put you at ease

How many times you were chased with your own fears

How many times you have cried but hided your tears

How many times darkness took over your whole life

How many times all you saw were struggles and a road of strife

How many times you cried yourself to sleep

How many times life filled you up with burdens to keep

How many times you were called ugly and unaware of the term beauty

How many times the road you chose was a hell of a duty

How many times you were called skinny or fat

How many…

Rogue One, Passengers And Assassin’s Creed Will Vie For December Box Office Glory

1

Deviant Theory

December is going to see some exciting new films hit the theater. It’ll be interesting to watch how they all fare. The obvious success story we can probably bet on is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Pre-release tracking already has the film opening at more than $130 million dollars, according to folks at Variety. Passengers and Assassin’s Creed are less likely to match Disney’s Star Wars, but they are sure to have dedicated fans. Jennifer Lawrence is already an iconic actress with some memorable rolls, matched with the always hilarious Chris Pratt. Their turn in Passengers may prove critical and financial gold. Michael Fassbender has clout in his own right with a string of successful films. Based off the uneven quality of games, will fans of the original source material in Assassin’s Creed flock to the theaters in support? Is there even enough of a fan base or appeal to wider…
