|Paper in the Wind
Several thoughts begin to flood my mind. I cannot imagine life without Alexa. I am Alexa's father, and that is all I am. Every waking moment of my day is dedicated to giving Alexa the support she needs to cope with autism. My body shivers as I try to regain my composure.

A Puss in Boots*
In the high-street chemist’s yesterday
Upon a thoughtfully-provided chair
Beside a radiator sat
A large and well-contented cat.
The chance was far too good to miss
For one who loves a play on words
So: ‘Look! A Puss in Boots!’ I cried.
The shopping zombies clearly thought me mad.
They turned, as only English people turn,
A blank and even hostile stare
Upon me, standing foolish there
As ‘Look! A Puss in Boots!’ I cried.
But then the creature stretched and purred
And opened amber eyes (that matched its fur).
And then it turned and winked at me.
I’ll swear I saw it wink at me.
As ‘Look! A Puss in Boots!’ I cried.

The hole in my chest would never be assuaged. I had to function without it and never use his magic again. It didn’t matter that it was part of me too. What mattered was that it was his and we were not as strong as we were before.
|Pieces of the Dark Eight
The First Star has been named and claimed. Answering the call of a quest, the Master Traveler has ventured far from home to a place called the Rims. In many ways it is much like the two systems of his people; the premise of Technology in competition with the Energies is debated on many levels, with neither side able to claim and hold higher ground. Still, it is the matter of the quest that beckons him – the Star Chaser – to engage this place and find not only the source of the rising plight of humanity, but the solution which will deliver the race of the Founders. It has been several years since he came to the Rims, and the time approaches for the Traveler to remove his veil and be seen.

|Pomeranian - Breed Of A Queen
Among such giants as the Norwegian Elkhound, Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed and others, the Pomeranian is the smallest of the Spitz family breed of dogs.
Cute, furry and feisty, these Poms are smart and fiercely loyal to their owners and families. But don’t let that cuteness fool you! They are definitely bold, independent dogs with a mind of their own. They are intensely curious about everything around them, and alert. In their minds, sometimes unfortunately, they are immensely bigger than they really are and this can sometimes cause them to pester and even attack dogs that are much larger.
If properly socialized with other animals and dogs, they usually get along very well with them.
A tiny toy-sized dog, the Pomeranian’s head is in proportion to the body and is shaped like a wedge. Some say their faces are pansy or baby-doll like while others describe them as foxlike. His short snout is fine and straight with a pronounced stop, and either dark colored or the color of his coat. Their medium-sized, almond-shaped, dark eyes light up with curiosity and intelligence.
Their uniquely plumed tail feathers out flat across their back, and sometimes their dewclaws are removed. Having a double coat, the Pom’s undercoat is short, thick and very soft while the outer coat is harsher to the touch, straight and long, where it is bushier about the chest and neck, forming a frill.
These lovely little dogs come in all colors, with the solid ones generally black, brown, blue, cream or white, orange and red. You might come across a white Pom, rarely, that is parti-colored, or a tan and black one, or even a sable and orange one. His bushy double coat stands out from his body. Though it appears that it might be hard to care for, all it needs is regular brushing.
Is it possible for a Pomeranian to change its color? Indeed, it is! Find out more in this Amazon 4 star rated book: “Pomeranian Breed of A Queen!”
The Russian state of Sverdlosk was the Soviet Union’s center of fringe military research during the cold war. There, terrifying biological weapons, capable of inflicting unspeakable horror, were intensively researched and developed. Every single medium and long range armament in the Soviet arsenal was repurposed to deliver these lethal agents to anywhere on the globe. The cold war eventually ended. The research did not.
Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.
