• The Writer


    Hello! My name is Laura, welcome to my blog! I write weird stories, collect dragon plushies and stay up too late with my nose in a book. I am a wife, mom and child saved by grace. My hope is that you find encouragement here or at least a smile or too.
    God bless!

    We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "The only just literary critic," he concluded, "is Christ, who admires more than does any man the gifts He Himself has bestowed."
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "Writers who see by the light of their Christian faith will have, in these times, the sharpest eye for the grotesque, for the perverse, and for the unacceptable. To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures."
    ~Flannery O'Connor

    You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.
    ~Arthur Polotnik

    Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "There are forms of insanity that condemn people to hear voices against their will, but as writers we invite ourselves to hear voices without relinquishing our hold on reality or our right to control."
    ~Writing Fiction by Janet Burroway

    Christians have sometimes been suspicious of stories, because they really can influence you. If you read the Twilight novels once a month for a year, I think you'd be a different human afterward—and not a sparkly one.
    ~Nate Wilson

About Mine Adventures

I have returned from the land of imagination! (Anyone miss me? 🙂 )
So, I’m sure you all want to hear all about it, let me see if I can summarize…

Singing, sword wielding, town burning pirates. Waiting in line. A trip of doom through a cursed temple. Waiting in line. Jungle cruise through the rivers of Africa. Waiting in line. Fifty foot plunge down a water fall. Waiting in line. A trip to the future. Waiting in line. A journey into deep space. That waiting thing. An island filled with caves of hidden treasures. Guess what. Screaming through a mine on an out of control train. And…waiting. Princesses, fairies, and daring feats by heroes. Lad dee da aka, waiting. And a mouse defeating a fire breathing dragon! Ya, it was pretty cool. : )

Okay, the waiting in line thing wasn’t that bad, just twenty minutes here, thirty there and forty somewhere else. But no, seriously, it was cool. As you can guess from the summary above I went on/saw, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, The Jungle Cruise, Splash Mountain, Tomorrow Land, Star Tours, Tom Sawyer’s Island, Thunder Mountain Railroad, Princess Fantasy Fair (yes, I did that), Pixie Hollow, Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular, the Fantasmic Show and MENY more. (One thing’s for sure, I never knew your feet could hurt so much! 😉 )

(And for your enjoyment!) Here are my favorite rides and shows!

In Disneyland
Splash Mountain (ride)
Pirates of the Caribbean (ride)
Indiana Jones (ride)
Fantasmic (show)

In California Adventure
Soaring Over California (ride)
Grizzly River Rafting (ride)
Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular (show)

Yup, that was some trip! 😀 (Despite the fact I was sick for half of it. 😦 But not to worry, it didn’t turn into the flu and I recovered quickly.)

P.S. You can leave comments now. 😉

The best ride in the world! =)
