in pursuit of kings

There is a hidden mountain pass our people call Rajamalai – which roughly translates to mean ‘the way of the king.’ It isn’t visible today; displaced by slow-moving mountains, diminished from memory and eroded by time, but the prevailing legend tells of the Kandyan King Rajasinghe II using the pass to flee following betrayal and… Continue reading in pursuit of kings

I began this year by logging into my Goodreads and updating the challenge to 100 books. It may not be considered a big announcement for most bookish folx, I know people who read 400 books an year; (Cait) I highly suspect they're not of the human species, but that is a story for another day.… Continue reading why i made the outrageous decision to read 100 books in 2019
