My Book  Beginnings is taken from THE WAY OF BEAUTY by Camille Di Maio:

"The stone birds stood at attention, as they had for over fifty years.  Their gray wings stretched in majestic neglect, aching to embrace whoever would venture to climb atop their perch over the entryway to the train station."

  1. Happy Friday!!

    Loved THE WAY OF BEAUTY. Finished it last night, but didn't change my post.

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. The Way of Beauty looks tempting...I love the phrase "majestic neglect."

    Here's mine: “SUNBURN”

    1. It was really good.

      Warm and cozy and historical.

      Thanks for commenting, Laurel.
