Ausone’s notebook, instalment #amwriting #mondayblogs #cats #IARTG

Good morning humans. It’s me again. Let’s start today with a question:

Can you hear that? Can you feel it?

I will answer the question myself (although it should be questions, but who cares?).

No, you can’t. You’re not here physically and even if, there is nothing. The work is finished. No strange people, no strange smell in the house. Doors and windows are closed. No drag. Close to paradise. Just close. As I mentioned already, now there are other people in front of the house digging up the pavement. A constant noise but a bit like having a radio playing. A background noise. Only in front of the house. My playground stays calm. There is no one. No human, that is. It might (No, it will) bring some changes to the daily life of my humans. It looks as though they have no longer access to the court yard by car from this afternoon on. That’s why they were constantly coming and going last Saturday. It’s announced that the work will go on till end of next month. If you have a look at what these guys have already done, you know why. They started 2 weeks ago digging up the pavement in front of the school. They will one day replace the top layer with something that looks nicer. One day! They haven’t yet. At the moment, the pavement in front of the school isn’t useable. It’s a dig site. And they will do the same on the other side too. At the moment they are doing the same in ‘my’ road. Digging up, doing some work. But not closing. Which means no access to court or garage for the people living on this side. Thus, they have to park their cars on the opposite side. Where parking is forbidden during the day. On one hand logic because they are working and need some space. On the other hand, not so. The majority of people living in this area are of an advanced age. Already retired, not leaving for work in the morning. Where do they park their cars? And some of them are of reduced mobility. They have problems walking and carrying their shopping. That’s why they are using their cars. Which they can’t really at the moment.

After 4pm parking is allowed on the opposite side. Great. You got a dig site on the right and parking cars on the left. In the middle you have a cars width of space. Trespassing the road is forbidden by signs on both entries to the road. Does anyone care? Exactly, not a soul. The road is not your only way. You could go around it. You may need a long drink glass more of gas. But that’s it. Still, no one cares. That Belgian drivers are the worst in Europe isn’t just a rumour.

Today’s photo is the last of the nut series. As you should know by now, it was taken by my personal photographer. And she has to take some new photos of me (HINT!).

See you next week with more human follies

Take care of yourself (and others)




Death Unmasked by Rick Sulik

My train of thoughts on...


The author sent me an ARC of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.

My rating:  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

(by Goodreads)

A reincarnated evil is stalking the women of Houston. With each murder, the madman quotes an excerpt from the Oscar Wilde poem, “The Ballad of Reading Gaol.” A huge smokestack belching smoke, a ragged flea market double-breasted wool coat, and an old antique picture frame, bring the distant past back to haunt Houston Homicide Detective, Sean Jamison. With those catalysts, Jamison knows who he was in a past life and that he lost the only woman he could ever love. Searching for his reincarnated mate becomes Jamison’s raison d’être as he and fellow detectives scour Houston for a brutal serial killer. The memory of timeless love drives Jamison’s dogged search for a serial killer, determined to finish what he started decades earlier.

Your own spiritual light will shine forth permanently, by Hui Neng

Buddhism now

Finial of a Buddhist Monk’s Staff (Shakujō)Bhikkhu Zhi Chang, a native of Gui Xi of Xin Zhou, joined the Order in his childhood, and was very zealous in his efforts to realize the Essence of Mind. One day, he came to pay homage to the Patriarch, and was asked by the latter whence and why he came.

‘I have recently been to the White Cliff Mountain in Hong Zhou,’ replied he, ‘to interview the Master Da Tong, who was good enough to teach me how to realize the Essence of Mind and thereby attain Buddhahood. But as I still have some doubts, I have travelled far to pay you respect. Will you kindly clear them up for me, Sir.’

‘What instruction did he give you?’ asked the Patriarch.

#RBRT Review Team

E.L has been reading Face Value by Ian Andrew

Face Value by Ian Andrew is a crime thriller which introduces readers to the Wright and Tran series. It’s an intriguing novel with lots of action, driven by strong, believable female characters.

Kara Wright and Tien Tran are partners in a private investigation agency. They are also best friends who met whilst serving as part of a special ops’ team within the military. They both have their own skill set, Kara is more outgoing and handles the client side of the business whereas Tien is a technological whizz. Both characters however are tough, intelligent and not the kind of women you would want to cross. In fact the novel opens with Kara making short work of a would-be rapist in a quite spectacular fashion, involving little more than a…

Olga has been reading The Lady Anne by Gemma Lawrence

The Lady Anne (Above all Others; The Lady Anne Book 2) by [Lawrence,G.]

I write this review as one of the members of behalf of Rosie’s Books Review Team. I was provided with a free copy of the book as part of the team.

I have read and enjoyed La Petite Boulain, the first book in the Above all Others series and really enjoyed getting to know a bit more about Anne Boleyn’s childhood, and particularly, the way the story was told, in the first person from the point of view of young Anne, or, to be more precise, the young Anne as remembered by the older Anne at the moment of awaiting her death in the Tower.

Here we see Anne return to England after spending part of her childhood and teenage years in courts abroad. She is sad to…
