    Roots and Branches of Languages

    Latin, appears to be 'oddly' missing, unless I have over-looked it. I initially couldn't find Romani and then I found it but it was so tiny on a branch that I couldn't believe it LoL. The artist also appeared to use some type of poetic license where s/he chose the year 0 which I am assuming...

    "Bellringer" -- questions and ideas

    question about descriptions :-)

    Thanks , I am trying to weed out some things in one of my stories where I believe is filled with too much description , I think I just need to allow the reader to come out with their own images. It would make it easier to consentrate on the plot too. Thanks for your comments :-)
