Breaking Chains


Hey all, Robin here. For those that don't know, I'm Michael's wife and I do some of the administrative tasks related to the work. Presently, I'm doing a proofing of the audiobook by reviewing "the dailies" as Tim Gerard Reynolds records each day.  I listen to Tim as I follow along in the book.

Anyway, for those who have read Legends of the First Empire, you know that each chapter starts with an entry from the famed "Book of Brin." I just hit Chapter 9, and it made me reflect on our current situation -- even though Michael wrote this years ago, and it has nothing to do with what is going on these days. We've not said much about Covid-19 -- what more is there to say that hasn't been said? But I thought I would share this with all of you.

Extended trips are the most frightening to begin, sheer cliffs the most difficult to climb, long falls the most painful to endure, but it is invisible chains that are the hardest to break.
— The Book of Brin

A few days ago, our governor extended the Stay-At-Home restrictions in Virginia until June 10th. I can't even begin to imagine what hardships that will cause to people in our state, but I also know that desperate times call for desperate measure.  So, I have faith that we, too, can break the invisible chains that Covid-19 has shackled us to. Stay safe. Stay strong. We'll get through this together.

    1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
