In most English translated stories the mother craves rampion but in non-translated versions, rampion is actually called Rapunzel which is where the girl’s na...

Re: Reading Music

I can't read music. People tried to teach me, but I just still can't. I learned to play the recorder and learned which holes to cover to get an A and an H en so forth, so when I got a sheet of music to play, I'd painstakingly write down the H, G, A, F etc so I could reproduce it. That I can't even d...

I love reading and I often find myself wishing I could be part of the book I'm reading, and it made me curious if other people do the same thing (My guess is yes), but also what kind of character they'd then like to be. One of the established chara...
