The Wonderful Visit

Genre: Fantasy

Price: $ 0.99

Publish Date: June 30, 2015

Publisher: Open Road Media Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Seller: OpenRoad Integrated Media, LLC


An angel comes to Earth in this fantastical tale by H. G. Wells When a fallen angel appears in the skies of southern England, the vicar of a small town mistakes the winged being’s dazzling plumage for that of a bird and shoots him down. This is only the first misfortune to befall “Mr. Angel,” as he comes to be known. “Neither the Angel of religious feeling nor the Angel of popular belief,” this celestial visitor quickly draws the ire of the village folk. But as time goes on, the angel becomes more and more human. His wings atrophy, and much to his surprise, he finds himself falling in love.   The master of fantasy literature, H. G. Wells has spun a brilliantly imagined tale in The Wonderful Visit .   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices. The son of a professional cricketer and a lady’s maid, H. G. Wells (1866–1946) served apprenticeships as a draper and a chemist’s assistant before winning a scholarship to the prestigious Normal School of Science in London. While he is best remembered for his groundbreaking science fiction novels, including The Time Machine , The War of the Worlds , The Invisible Man , and The Island of Doctor Moreau , Wells also wrote extensively on politics and social matters and was one of the foremost public intellectuals of his day.

Giselle Blew a Wonderful Opportunity!

Supermodel Giselle Bundchen made headlines recently not because she was named spokesperson for a new clothing line, or because of her husband Tom Brady’s recent football cheating scandal, but because she had a little work done! Numerous reports indicate that she got breast implants, and eyelid surgery. Big deal, cosmetic surgery in her native Brazil is more common than getting a manicure.

The rub came from her previous comments expressing the fact that she would never undergo cosmetic surgery, because she prefers to be natural, relying on yoga, diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Not only did she have the surgery in Paris, she chose a Burqa as a disguise, not exactly politically correct! I understand why she had the operation, because in my plastic surgery practice, I see moms every day who want to regain their pre-pregnancy figures. It is understandable, and accepted in our youth oriented society. What bothers me is that Giselle tried to blatantly hide it.

I have been preaching in this venue for years that our society wrongly puts too much pressure on women to look younger and prettier, placing emphasis on looks, rather than intelligence and substance!

The media reinforces this notion, regularly trotting out young, beautiful fashion models and movie stars for us all to gawk, admire and even post as role models! The problem is, for the most part, they have had a lot of help! Besides Photoshop, they are primped and preened by the most talented makeup and hair stylists around. Then, bring on the plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists, to tweak their “perfection” further with Botox, fillers and plastic surgery. Again, I have no problem with that, remember what I do for a living! Just be honest with us and admit that you have had some help! Otherwise, how do the women in our society compete, or God forbid, try to emulate these “beauties”? They don’t have a chance to keep up, as most don’t have access to the same beauty arsenal as these “role models”! Most women have a job, family and important daily responsibilities, there is no contest.

I admire actress Patricia Heaton, well known as the adorable, dynamic wife Debra Barone from the TV show Everybody Loves Raymond. After giving birth to four kids, she bravely admitted that she had a “Mommy Makeover,” a tummy tuck and breast lift. No big deal!

Giselle, what a heroine you could have been? Arguably, the most successful and admired Supermodel ever, coming out of her Burqa, and screaming to the world, “I am not perfect and even my body changed after having two babies and I am getting older, and that’s OK!” How refreshing and honest it could have been, as opposed to what it became!

I am the biggest proponent of diet and exercise, and regularly extol their virtues, but please Giselle, don’t give false hopes to us all by having a little nip and tuck, and then give the credit to genetics, yoga and your skin care line for your lasting beauty at the ripe old age of 35!

Why can’t we choose better role models? Why not admire and emulate people like your kid’s school teacher, or your brilliant neighbor who runs her family and has a great job? Can’t we select role models that matter and are worth respecting? Move over Giselle, make way for people we should admire!

Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means.
–Albert Einstein

From executive producers Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) comes a shocking and outlandish year-in-the-life documentary about the White Family of Boone County, West Virginia's most notorious and surly family. Shoot-outs, robberies, gas-huffing, drug dealing, pill popping, murders and tap dancing. Nestled deep in the Appalachian Mountains, the White family lives an existence more like something from the Wild West than modern-day suburbified America. The legendary family is as known for their wild, excessive criminal ways as they are for their famous mountain dancing members, including Jesco White, the star of the cult classic documentary Dancing Outlaw. The film follows the Whites over the course of one tumultuous year, as they deal with a stabbing, criminal sentencing, attempted murder, death and birth. Never dull, THE WILD AND WONDERFUL WHITES OF WEST VIRGINIA are "the Hatfields and McCoys all rolled into one…" (New York Magazine).

12 Unexpectedly Wonderful Things About Life After Divorce

div

It’s hard to get out of bed some days after divorce, let alone map out a future spent on your own. But at some point in the process, you start to realize that you’re so much more than your relationship status and that life goes on — and gets better — after divorce.

Our readers and bloggers will tell you as much. Below, they offer 12 silver linings of divorce that surprised them most.

Your free time is entirely yours.
“These day, I’m able to do whatever I want at night. ‘Greys Anatomy’ marathon? Yes! Browse Pinterest for hours on end? Done! Not having to worry about ignoring or upsetting someone? Priceless.” –Callie McCartney

You don’t expect divorce to be a confidence booster — but it can be.
“After my marriage ended, I doubted my ability to handle the divorce — and definitely felt inadequate during and immediately after — but once the dust settled, I was proud of myself for getting through it. Not only did I not fall apart, I was building a great life. I found myself on the other side and now know I can handle anything.” –Rebecca Neville

If you have sole custody of the kids, you have full say in how they’re raised.
“I always enjoyed spending time with my kids but getting to raise them on my own, I didn’t know how much I would enjoy just being immersed in their lives. The rewards of being solely responsible for their well-being were enormous: The school conferences, concerts, sporting events, taking care of their worries, talking with them about first girlfriends, first boyfriends — all of it — gave me more joy than I ever thought possible.” –Joseph Seldner

Those eggshells you used to walk on? They’re no longer there.
“My fear of fighting with my ex is gone. Today, I live fearlessly. I get to call the shots and I’m watching my daughter grow into the kind of woman I still hope to be when I grow up. Eggshells are now just eggshells and not a metaphor that applies to my life.” –Jayne Schroeder

Bye bye, in-laws.
“Let me tell you: The slow realization that you don’t have to sit there and listen to your mother-in-law anymore is magical.” –Amy Matthis Marsh

Being an every-other-weekend parent has its perks.
“I get to be an off-the-clock parent every other weekend. I don’t get a lot of time to myself, but when those weekends come, I can live like a 20-year-old bachelor. The dishes pile up in the sink and I can stay out as late as I want (or just be lazy and veg out on the couch and watch shows and eat junk food). I might see my kids at their lacrosse or soccer games, but if a change in the schedule happens, it’s not my problem that weekend!” –Jennifer Iacovelli

You realize you were both good people who were simply bad for each other.
“It’s great being able to laugh and be myself without feeling guilty. He is a good man but we didn’t make each other happy and he didn’t ‘get’ me. I can be myself again now.” –Rebecca Kenne

This is an opportunity to become a much better parent.
“Prior to our separation, I came home daily to a house that was riddled with stress created by me and my ex-wife. The cloud of tension was palpable. The stress of a marriage that was failing made me short, bitter and incapable of appreciating my children the way they deserved. Now I revel in the little moments that happen all the time in fatherhood. I don’t blow up at small things that kids just do and it’s made me and my sons closer than ever even though we see each other less.” –Doug Zeigler

Your goals are no longer on the back burner.
“I’ve learned to take care of myself. I’ve gone from couch potato to finishing a half Ironman!” -Kris Fava

Every side of the bed is your side.
“Now that I’m divorced I can lay across the whole damn mattress.” –Kelly-Anne Foley

Your post-divorce relationship with your ex may end up being better than the marriage itself.
“I come from a very small family. Divorce left me feeling alone after suddenly losing the only family I ever had, including in-laws and aunts, uncles and cousins on my ex’s side. When I became friends with my ex’s new wife, I was slowly included in family functions again. Over the years, my family has become larger than I ever dreamed possible — including my son’s stepmom’s family. Despite our ‘ex’ titles, we’re completely connected as a family. All of us.” –Shelley Wetton

You get to rediscover who you are as a person.
“I’m rediscovering and building upon the once strong and independent person I had lost along the way. I’ve learned to like myself again.” –Renée Benson

Jessica Lange Says Comparisons To Caitlyn Jenner Are ‘So Wonderful’

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, introduced herself to the world today in her Vanity Fair cover story. Soon after, Twitter flooded with praise for Jenner, including tweets of support from her family and celebrities. Jenner also broke President Obama’s Twitter record on Monday, gaining over one million followers within four hours of her first tweet.

After debuting on the cover of Vanity Fair in a photo shot by Annie Leibovitz, the Internet began saying that Jenner resembled other famous women. While some made comparisons to Geena Davis and Rene Russo, the general consensus was that Jenner looked a lot like Jessica Lange. The comparison even began trending on Twitter.

While The Daily Beast was interviewing Lange on Monday for an unrelated story, they asked the “American Horror Story” actress if she’d heard about the trending comparison. First, they gave Lange a quick explanation of what exactly “trending” meant — “Trending on Twitter because Caitlyn Jenner [is] on the cover,” Lange said. “You see, I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet.”

Then Lange said she hadn’t yet seen the cover. “Oh, really?” she said in response to the comparison. “That’s so wonderful. Well, now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year? When the Holidays Aren’t So Jolly

2014-12-17-GingerSadManbyDoctorPopular.jpg

Creative Commons image Ginger Sad Man, courtesy of Doctor Popular on Flickr.

Up until a few years ago I was one of those people who had her tree, decorations and an entire DVD watchlist of Christmas films planned starting from the first of December. Christmas being my second favorite holiday after Halloween, I’d often bankrupt myself buying gifts for family and friends. Mulled wine, parties, watching It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve, A Miracle on 34th Street for Christmas Day, stockings, presents, love. It was such a wonderful time of the year.

Then came December 24 of 2008, when my father decided to bring his mistress of 30+ years — my entire life and his entire marriage to my mom — to family Christmas functions. Turned out my mother and I were among the few who didn’t know about the other woman. At the time, my husband and I were living in Prague and for the holidays we’d traveled to Sri Lanka — my father’s home country and to where my American mom had decided to retire. Meanwhile, back in my husband’s home of Florida, his aunt passed away unexpectedly and we were helpless do anything from so far away. My parents divorced shortly after and with it my entire family split.

Worst. Christmas. Ever.

In the years since it’s felt a chore to put up a tree at all, and Christmas movies? Well, I never thought I’d personally relate so much to Scrooge. Or the Grinch. Only, there’s no saving this holiday.

Because next came December 14, 2012, the day of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown. Having my own memories of a gun crime and the PTSD that goes with it: As I heard the stories coming out of the school and learning the kids were the same ages as ones I used to work with in Prague… I felt like I was there as the massacre went down. I would close my eyes and see their horror. I would open my eyes and the horror would still be there.

And it was Christmas. The presents those little angels would never get to open. The survivors with a wicked journey towards healing ahead of them. The parents and the unbearable sorrow of burying their children.

Having only been repatriated to the United States for a short while — and living in constant terror of new gun violence — I internalized the events at Sandy Hook Elementary to the extreme where stress caused me to skip a period. When it finally arrived almost three months later the physical pain was among the worst I’ve ever experienced. I lay there, body spasming, eyes watering, holding my belly, thinking about the Sandy Hook moms — and all the moms who have lost their children to senseless gun violence — all the physical agony they went through to bring their children into the world only to lose them because of this country’s perverse lack of gun control.

Turns out, this is not the most wonderful time of year at all. Blood pressure and depression increase around Christmas time, as well as social pressure and (often unreasonable) expectations to participate in the culture of consumption that has become Christmas as we know it.

Social media is wonderful for sharing photos of trees and parties and presents waiting to be opened — unless Christmas has negative associations; then social media becomes a new portal into personal hell. I’ve seen a number of friends swear off Facebook until the new year because everyone else’s apparent holiday joy was making them feel worse during this complicated and emotionally-fraught time of year.

Since our Worst Christmas Ever my husband and I have virtually stopped exchanging Christmas gifts. Instead, each year on behalf of each other and those we love we make a larger and larger donation to Smile Train, a non-profit organization that provides harelip surgeries for children in developing countries. Doctors donate their time, and the money Smile Train collects goes towards the necessary supplies to perform the corrective surgery. These procedures make the difference between a child (and sometimes also his or her family) being a perpetual outcast or the chance to live a normal life. The before and after pictures will break your heart and mend it all in one go.

The first time we donated Smile Train, chose the amount and clicked send, both of us were unexpectedly overwhelmed with the magnitude of such a small gesture — replacing gifts and cards with a contribution towards changing a child’s life for the better — that we cried and held each other tight. And now that’s our new Christmas ritual.

I also decided that the spirit of giving espoused by all those Christmas tales I used to love is something I’d rather practice all year long. I give away at least one painting a month, regularly send friends care packages, and my husband and I treat each other with surprises whenever the giving moves us. “Christmas” is all year in the Lighthouse Point Koehler household.

Now that I no longer have any family requirements during the holiday season — another reason to be thankfully childfree — I use this time for quiet reflection.

And this year I also gave myself two full weeks off from work to finally finish my second novel. There’s nothing like completing a long-overdue project to combat the Christmas season blues.

Still, each day my heart goes out to the Sandy Hook parents who lost their kids two years ago and all the survivors of that wretched day. I honor every person who has an absence in their life this year because of gun violence. I say a non-denominational prayer for everyone around the world who now has to muddle their way through the waters of PTSD and figure out how to cope.

To all of you who, like me, struggle through this time of year: Please be gentle with yourself. If grief visits, let it. Reach out if you need help. Set clear boundaries and don’t be afraid to honor them even when you’re feeling pressured not to. Don’t force things, and especially don’t force yourself. It’s hard enough already, you’re doing the best you can and that is more than enough.

Don’t forget: This too shall pass. Enjoy what you can, leave the rest.

This isn’t the most wonderful time of the year, it’s just another part of it. And it will be over soon.

In solidarity and with love,

Sezín

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!

About Me

Commitment-wise, a fun buddy (or two, or three) is all I'm in the market for right now. When I go out, I go with the flow, and end up where I end up. I get along best with people who are willing to push the envelope in bed and out of it, with those who are willing to embrace the kinky arts. I like my partners to be as insatiable as I am. I look forward to setting up our first rendezvous.

If you contact me bear in mind that I'm married and I'm just looking for a discreet fling, not a soulmate. I'm not interested in changing my life – I'm just turning up the volume on my leisure time.

I would prefer meeting with married men, but am not completely opposed to the right single…

What I’m Looking For

Fun, frivolous, discreet dates, with true gentlemen. Oh, but don't be scared away! I'm no damsel in distress, needing a valiant knight to approach from afar, wearing his armor of courtesy and respect.

Metaphors aside, I'm looking for a married man (singles may apply) to spend quality time with, with no emotional strings, with mutual enjoyment of our particular tastes and sexual desires. I'm okay with dating in public and at parties, given the understanding of discretion over certain topics.
