Please help bring me back
Pink eraser to wipe away pain in my head
Untie laces of dusty brown from sandy boots on feet
Remove them one by one to stroke white of limbs
Hold fingerless hand while stroking healing scars
Kiss my cheek with warm gentle lips
Like an angel’s light warm so bright
I’m more than a uniform of flesh and bones
Look at me and you may see what I used to be
I was your neighbor next door
A father or mother, a husband or wife
A sister or brother, an uncle or aunt, a cousin or friend
People loved me
Yes, I used to feel real…
With a body that moved this way and that
Before these sandy boots on my feet
I laughed and joked
Sat in the grass to play with my kids
Skipped in bare feet near the ocean so blue

About the Legends of Windemere
A young warrior has set off to become a hero, a powerful caster has left home to face her destiny, an orphaned gypsy is desperate to hold onto her new family, a broken woman has awoken to a strange world, a drite has eaten every apple in his path, a barbarian warrior is keeping a secret, and a former mercenary’s confidence has been broken.

Always interesting research from Flickering Lamps!
This week Flickering Lamps is taking a break from the hidden, not so well known sites that often grace this site to explore probably the most famous cemetery in the world: Paris’ Père Lachaise. Opened as the world’s first garden cemetery in 1804, Père Lachaise (or to give its original name, cimetière de l’Est – East Cemetery) was the inspiration for many other grand Victorian garden cemeteries, both in Europe and across the Atlantic in the Americas. Situated on the edge of the city, Père Lachaise was opened to provide a dignified burial space for all of Paris’ citizens. Around a million people have been laid to rest there since it opened in 1804, and today, around two million people visit the cemetery every year.

“It was ten minutes dominated by the ghosts of young lives, cruelly destroyed by radiation, upheaval, trauma.” Peter Zarko-Flynn documents Chernobyl in a series of photo essays, 30 years after the disaster.
Excellent information from Sally and Smorgasbord Health!
There are two types of amino acid, essential and non-essential. There are approximately 80 amino acids found in nature but only 20 are necessary for healthy human growth and function. We are made up of protein and we require adequate amounts of amino acids if we are to maintain and repair the very substance that we are made from.
We need to obtain essential amino acids from our diet and our body will produce the nonessential variety on its own if our diet is lacking in the essential type.
ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS.
These are Histidine (essential in infants can be made by the body in adults if needed), Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Cysteine (essential in infants, nonessential in adults), Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan and Valine.
NON ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS.
Alanine, Aspartic acid, Arginine, Carnitine, Glycine, Glutamine, Hydroxyproline, Norleucine, Proline, Serine and Tyrosine.
