Poetry. This collection of poems takes us on a journey–a very personal journey of Pamela Porter’s own–to Africa and South America, those corners of the world the news reports never seem to cover: to Angola’s thirty-year-long civil war, a landscape overrun with poverty, AIDS, and infant mortality; and to the struggles of ordinary people still haunted by the past horrors of Argentina’s "dirty war." With language deceptively simple, filled with music, color and rich detail, Porter writes with grace and compassion, making a fierce beauty from all she sees, celebrating the resilience of the poor and oppressed, who nonetheless remain determined to live their lives with dignity and with joy.

Coronation of the White Rose
The Coronation of the White Rose is a story that follows my first novel. The true meaning of the story represents peace after the tragedy of the people in the spring town of Virgin Mary. The story also represents a new beginning at the end of an era. When Isabel-who is a mute rich blonde girl-heard a bunch of rolling grains of precious stone making noise in the basement of her house on a dawn evening, she left her room and followed it to find out what it was. She discovered a bunch of rolling white pearls beads next to a white ballerina shoe with a long pink satin ribbon that holds the memories of a lost little girl. As she put her hand on the shoe’s ribbon, lightning strikes cast down from heaven through her dark vision, galloping horses’ hooves with heavy breaths and neighing noises, begging voices of a praying woman, and a sniffing noise of a crying little girl invaded her ears. She gasped and choked as she discovered a new world that evening. As she went to bed that night, she dreamed about a singing little girl’s shadow passing through the cathedral’s stained glass windows in that town. The girl was singing and praying, and Isabel saw herself crowned as a new queen in front of the church. Without thought and doubt, she left the spring town of Virgin Mary in the morning to find out what her dream meant. And life arrived tracing its own path for her, used her as the gate of a new beginning, and crowned her as the new Madonna of the whole land. On the other side, wild, charming, and escape convict Badjo Badu was troubling the spring town and playing with the hearts of two beautiful women. Sandra Vedette, a beautiful, dark, fierce, mythical persona whom Badjo made a pact with to help her trace her way back to the flowering land, but instead of that, he found a girl in the spring town that he loved more: Anna Mariah, a beautiful Latina girl with long raven hair, red lips, and roses crowning her head, and gave all his attention to her instead of helping Vedette accom
Are gloves a good idea for wedding?
I like these satin gloves or maybe kid leather both opera length and both white.
I went to 10 weddings last year and not one bride wore gloves which is the reason
I want to wear them. My wedding will be formal at a cathedral and i was thinking that
the bridesmaids will look good with white satin opera gloves as well.
What do you think and thanks((:
