There are some people in the world who deserve tribute not just because they are famous or because of why they are famous, but because of their accomplishments and the inspiration that their achievements bring to others. I do not put people on pedestals simply because they are people and they have character flaws as we all do. It does not matter if they make more money than me or even if they are famous they are still human beings. I do however, admire and respect them because they have managed to achieve their goals in life and inspire others to do the same. They also add joy to the world if but only a little for those who seek a precious moment of escape from their life or themselves. They show that even the smallest and most insignificant of any of us can and do mean a lot to the big picture as a whole. My hat is off to those people in the world who have personally inspired me and many others. I will not name names because there are way too many of them out there who inspire me and because some of them are my friends and I do not wish to embarrass them, but they know who they are. For me this respect is given by my treatment of them, my friendship, my secret admiration, or a special gift from the heart, and sometimes my promotion of them and their work. Sometimes even just a smile can be the greatest gift in the world, but that is another Post.

MidSouth Con 30

In these uncertain times when politics and financial woes dominate the energy around us, there is one sure and positive thing, at least in my life, that brings a short break from all the chaos; MidSouth Con. This is a place, no matter where the venue, where I have found people who share my interest and I feel at ease. MidSouth Con is a place where for one weekend reality melts away and the world outside ceases to exist. Yes, another fabulous weekend at MidSouth Con has gone by and I grudgingly bring myself back to work. However, all is not lost for though MidSouth is passed and I have to wait a whole year until it returns, I have been reset. The inspirational juices are flowing and the synergy surges through me as I look forward to new projects and old projects seen in a new light. I thank you once again to all the staff at MidSouth Con for the invigoration and the borrowing of your lifeline for the recharging of my own. Also I would like to say, that being a guest this year has offered me the opportunity to give back a little as well and in turn offer up some of the wisdom I have gleaned off others over the years to those who seek the knowledge as I once did. I also would like to thank my esteemed colleagues for their offerings as well for I have learned from them and as always treasure every piece of valued information they give me. To the honored guests who graced MidSouth with their treasures of knowledge and beautiful faces as well as personalities, I thank you and beg your forgiveness if I personally was unaware of your status or brilliant works. My only defense in my ignorance is that "I am only an egg." To my new friends, I thank you for the honor to have met you and to be allowed to call you friend for I feel one can never have too many. To my fans and those who enjoy my stories, I thank you as well with all my heart for your support and kind words for it is you who inspire me as well. Alas I now turn away and go into the world for another year but I leave you with one last thought, "LONG LIVE MOOSE AND SQUIRREL! Oh and CARL!"

BEHIND THE MIRROR

BEHIND THE MIRROR


The watcher watches from a veil,

behind the mist a mere shadow trace.

The watcher watches from the gloom,



the darkness a semblance to its face.

Through the mirror that reflects nothing

the ominous peers out marred glass. 
 


Biding in its malevolent design, 

until corporeality allows it to pass.

December 15, 2011 Review by author J. Moffett Walker

New author, Jennifer Mulvihill, has penned an interesting fantasy entitled, The Lost Daughter of Easa.
This book kept me reading from the beginning to the end, which is unusual for a non-fantasy reader. Although the book has sixty- nine chapters, the chapters are short and that mesmerized me and motivated me to want more and more. The short chapters helped me to read all three hundred and thirty-nine pages, every drop.
Mulvihill went to great length developing her characters; that included the protagonist, Elsie, those who helped her and all the many villains. One interesting point was how she described her non-human characters. One example, which was one of my favorite chapters, included Elsie’s encounter with a tree that engulfed her.

The foreshadowing technique the author used, readers can easily underestimate the value of the clues.

If you are a fantasy lover, this book is a must read for you. Like me, I believe others will enjoy The Lost Daughter of Easa.
