    Ancient Roman Lives Again

    I did not have a classical education, so writers like Livy are a new experience for me. I had read that many current authors of historical fiction use Livy as one of their main sources of inspiration, so I decided to go directly to that 'source of inspiration'. I’m glad I did.

    Reading the Nook version allowed me to search for any word or phrase of which I was unfamiliar (Which there are many.). I knew little or nothing about the Etruscans and, thanks to Livy and this feature, it really enriched the learning experience for me.

    I have been to Egypt and seen first-hand how the Romans (and Greeks) ‘molded’ historical and contemporary (Roman/Greek) Egypt into what they wanted it to be. (Almost all temples are from the Greek-Roman period.) Ancient Egypt was long gone by the time the Roman soldiers/‘tourists’ arrived. The same for the Etruscans, but Livy helped me to better understand their place/influence concerning the development of Roman up to Livy’s day.

    Warriors: Desperate Path part 1

    A slick gray she-cat pushed through the brambles, a shower of dew glistening on her pelt. Her clan, ThunderClan, was silent behind her, all the warriors, queens, kits, and apprentices asleep. The forest beyond was dark, the familiar forest morphing into something new in the dark. The path was lit only by the claw moon in the sky and the distant light of monsters roaring across the ThunderPath. Silverpelt was not shining that night, and ominous fat clouds rolled by, thunder rumbling in the distance. StarClan was not pleased, but Nighttail had chosen love over faith a long time ago. The tall wooden fence loomed in the near distance, the wind groaning around the twoleg nest like a badger with a stomachache. Nighttail reached the fence and dug her claws into the familiar grooves, climbing up stealthily. "Charlie?" She called out, scanning the neatly trimmed grass for the familiar brown tabby tom. All the lights were out inside, and their was nothing moving except for a twoleg device that whirled around in the breeze. Then she heard the movement in the corner, and she turned sharply, her amber eyes seaching through the leaves of a hedge. "Is that you?" Nighttail called out quietly. The branches rattled again, and a black and white she-cat stepped out, followed by a ginger tabby. Nighttail gulped in horror, guilt crashing down on her. It was Spottedstar and Tigerlily! "Pleasant evening, isn't it, Nighttail?" Spottedstar greeted her, her eyes flashing and a low growl forming in her throat.
