“There Be Dragons Here” Writing Contest

Entry Eleven

by Caddo Veil


Lost Dragon Dreams~~


Blue clouds of thunder

Filled the air, then—dawn through night.

An endless wilding;

Lifetime, spent; dragons rampaged,

Owned the borders forested….


She thought she’d left all

Mem’ry behind, far ago—

When knights waged battle,

Razed, laid waste to, the land; and

Chaos stole her sanity.

Dragons Fall In Love Too!! Plus Valentine’s Day With JT & JZ, What Could Be Better, Right?

I know what you’re thinken…. Where in $#@! did he find a Heart Shaped Dragon Picture?

Ok, maybe not… Truth is, I couldn’t tell you where I got it… But I can tell you amongst my Dragon-esq Focus lately, I came across it, and saved it for such an occasion… As… Well, Valentine’s Day, Lol

I know what else you’re thinken, Is this some kind of ‘Valentine’s Day Writing Contest’ Subliminal, ok not so Subliminal, Marketing Effort for the Currently ongoing “There Be Dragons Here” Writing Contest?

And you’d be Right… Partially… The part where the Dragon Picture Comes into it that is.

And on that Note, BE SURE TO ENTER! Only 3 Days Left, and we’ve got 10 Entries So Far!

So lets get the Business Part of the Post out of the way, so we can get to the Entertainment Portion

The Rules

Entries, Contest Updates Etc.

The Award Badges



On with the Entertainment

Now I admit, I actually became a Justin Timberlake Fan back when he did this song, and I Liked the Video too

Heartbreak Portion Of The Post

Before that, I thought he was… Eh

And I’ve never been a JZ Fan… Truth was, I was, and still am, Neither Here, nor There about JZ… No offense to those that like em.

Anyway, Justin Tiberlake, or J.T., is making some more music, which I got a taste of whilst watching the Grammys, which wasn’t all that bad this year… Better music out there than there was a few years ago.

Anyway, Justin just came out with his New Song, and Video, which includes JZ in it… I’ll let you be the judge.

The Men In Suits, Woman In Lingerie Portion Of This Post

Ok, so I don’t mind the Old Big Band/Rat Pack kinda Stylized thing… And the Song’s alright… Yah know… Listenable

But no offense, but I’m thinken the JZ Crew had something to do with the Woman in Lingerie with Water Pouring over them Portion of the Video, which I really could have done without, Lol

Talk about Cheesy, Lol

But hey, this isn’t a Song Review, IT’S VALENTINE’S DAY!!

So, anything goes… Right?

Our Love is a Castle: A True Story

Squire’s Castle – Willoughby Hills, Ohio

My husband and I were best friends for almost four years before we decided it was time to stop being silly and start being in love.

When the recession hit we were just beginning our relationship and there was limit funding for date nights, so we decided to hit the parks. Our first true “date” was Squire’s Castle, a shell of a building located deep in the North Chagrin Reservation MetroPark. Squire’s Castle is not actually a castle and was never meant to be so. It was intended to be a guard house to a more elaborate building, but it was never finished. Indeed, the owner Feargus B. Squire did live in it for a time, but eventually abandoned the land and sold it in 1922. By 1925 the Cleveland MetroParks purchased the land and it has become a public site ever since.

On a good day in Cleveland children play in the castle, people walk their dogs and couples young and old will enjoy its splendor.

Last June, my husband and I added it to our story once more as we said our “I dos” in front of a small gathering of our friends and family within its walls and our love has been a castle ever since.
