I stared at the apparition, not sure whether I was awake or dreaming.
The thing prodded me to show that I was indeed wide awake.
"Who are you?" I stammered in fear.
"I am the book spirit that will show you a sight you will fear", it said.
"Why are you visiting me? I am no Scrooge!", I responded indignantly.
"I am here to show you the grave yard of books ", its bookhead nodded emphatically.
"Why must I see it?"
"To warn you!"
"You have lost your first love. Return to your first love, us!"
I want to apologize for my non-participation for the past two weeks. There were some pressing matters that gobbled up my time. Also my husband and I had an unexpected outing together for 6 days. So was not able to participate. Its the reason why I may not have replied to people’s comments or posts. This week’s offering is an excerpt from the book THE HIDING PLACE, which is about Corrie Ten Boom & her family. They were active resistance workers in Holland during the II World War. This picture reminded me of the last few paras of her book!

Yasuko clutched her child to her bosom, desperately peeping out.She had been waiting earnestly for this day.
Ah, there he was, coming in now, as usual sedately and serenely.
Didn’t he understand the urgency of the matter? He seemed to be going on as though it was business as usual.
Tamotsu smiled gently into her eyes, calming her with his strength. As he led her out, he pointed out to the red brick building opposite.
She tried to spell the words, using the little knowledge she had gained. Halfway to safety, she relaxed as she understood the words.
Reaching safety, she named her child Sachiko
