Happy BlogBlast for Peace Day!
I dedicate this year's post to all prisoners who have suffered torture throughout the centuries, and who continue to suffer today.
As I write the second book in my Dragonsfyre dark fantasy series featuring Scorpius, the falconer's apprentice turned lord's man, I'm dealing with issues of torture and its psychological aftermath.
This piece by Vivaldi is a beautiful contemplation on true peace being elusive in life, and waiting for us in the afterlife.
However, that doesn't mean we shouldn't reach our hands out to our brothers and sisters who suffer.
To all whose cries have been shielded from those who could hear and offer protection, I offer this post and the book I'm writing.
Peace to all from A Piece of My Mind.
Nulla in mundo pax sincera
In this world
there is no honest peace
free from bitterness
pure and true
sweet Jesus, lies in Thee
Amidst punishment and torment
lives the contented soul,
chaste love its only hope
