Quick Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson book talk.
Robert Louis Stevenson, one of my favorite writers, captured my heart in his written account of his cross country travels from the east coast to the west. His heart mission? To join, and hopefully wed, his love, Fanny. A much better account than any I could relate will be found online, should anyone want to follow up, or be inspired to dig a little, by my song. He passed thru this very town in which I live, and his telling of this hard overland journey was something which just touched me. The account can be read in "Across the Plains," which can be found (and read) on this lovely website: readprint dot com The pics , I borrowed from the net, in order to tell the story, and used here to "illustrate" the song, not for profit, not for gain, no copyright infringement intended. I actually wrote the line, "I will wait, by the door" before I found the painting seen, of a pacing Mr Stevenson, and his sweetheart, on a couch , where else? but by the door...:-) Unknown to me where in San Francisco they wed, but a guess is City Hall. They honeymooned in the Napa Valley, Calistoga and St Helena. I am inspired myself to read "the Silverado Squatters" which is a sharing of their honeymoon, now on my todosomeday list, LOL. here are lyrics to (a very simple song): Enjoy:-) XOS, Laurie Here Lies Love sail the water to the shore ride the iron horse o-ver the land over the land come to me my oh my love o-ver mountains to the sea to the sea North wind blows 'crosst the deep tries to steal my ...
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson---book talk The Psychopath has a Jekyll and Hyde nature - is vile, vicious and vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses; no-one can (or wants to) believe this individual has a vindictive nature - only the current target of the psychopath's aggression sees both sides; whilst the Jekyll side is described as "charming" and convincing enough to deceive, the Hyde side is frequently described as "evil"; Hyde is the real person, Jekyll is an act. No one is perfect and all people have behaved in selfish and cruel ways I am sure, but a psychopathic person is different different, it is like they are not human. They are like Hyde and have no true feeling or love for anyone. Some pyschopaths are quite obvious like Hyde (Charles Manson type) and some have more guile and charm but are just as evil.
For more great information, photos and video about Samoa, see PleaseTakeMeTo's Samoa Travel Guide - www.pleasetakemeto.com The estate is about 10 minutes from Apia and incorporates the grand home of Robert Louis Stevenson, now restored to the same condition it was in when he and his wife lived here over a century ago. It is also an evolving museum with a tour that takes about 40 minutes and is quite interesting. There is a waterfall and swimming hole about 5 minutes walk away and there's also the option of hiking to the top of the neighbouring mountain where Robert Louis Stevenson and his wife Fanny are buried. The view from here takes in all of Apia and helps you understand why this great poet, novelist and travel writer chose it as his resting place for eternity.

Ms. Holtz' class performs "Chicken Soup With Rice" by Maurice Sendak
Heres a virtual movie of the great Robert Louis Stevenson reading his much loved poem often performed as a song " The vagabond" .From "Songs of Travel and Other Verses", published in 1896. It is Meant to be sung "to an air of Schubert", Robert Louis Stevenson's verse - energetic, enthusiastic and exciting - isin many ways reminiscent of his prose, and like his prose, it's always funo read. Readers looking for profound insight or gut-wrenching emotion are likely to be disappointed; equally, though, readers looking for metricalfelicity and magical atmospherics are likely to be enchanted. Stevenson is a sort of mixture of Walter de la Mare and John Masefield: the former for his command of atmosphere, and the latter for his wanderlust. The romance of the open road plays a significant role inStevenson's writings, yet it's always tempered with a sense of the beauty of stillness, of silence. And while RLS cannot (in all honesty) hold a candleto either de la Mare or Masefield, in many respects he does not miss by: his poems rarely fail to capture the imagination, and, having captured it, to take it to places it's rarely seen before.

Heres a virtual movie of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) the Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer reading probably his best known poem "Requiem" First published in 1879. Fourteen years before his death, when he was very ill in California, Stevenson had composed "Requiem" his own epitaph: Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburghs New Town in 1850. He died 44 years later on a small Samoan island in the Pacific. During his short life he travelled the world, defied convention, and made himself one of the most famous writers of the 19th century. Robert Louis Stevenson was one of the most-read adventure novelists of the late 1800s. Among his most popular books were Kidnapped (1886), The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and Treasure Island (1883). The latter book features Stevenson's famous crafty pirate Long John Silver. Stevenson also published a much-loved book of poems, A Child's Garden of Verse (1885). Having suffered from tuberculosis for much of his life, Stevenson spent many years travelling in search of a climate that would suit his illness. He finally settled in Samoa, where he died in 1894 and is buried. Kind Regards Jim Clark All rights are reserved on this video recording copyright Jim Clark 2009 Requiem.............

Robert Louis Stevenson's excellent poem about love and life. Made with Imovie 06 and Garageband. This was shot in one of the few great locations we have in Canberra and sadly it's coming to an end, the Belconnen Bus Interchange. At least I was able to shoot one film there before it turns into nothing but rubble.

From "A Child's Garden of Verses" (1885) Great is the sun, and wide he goes Through empty heaven with repose; And in the blue and glowing days More thick than rain he showers his rays. Though closer still the blinds we pull To keep the shady parlour cool, Yet he will find a chink or two To slip his golden fingers through. The dusty attic spider-clad He, through the keyhole, maketh glad; And through the broken edge of tiles Into the laddered hay-loft smiles. Meantime his golden face around He bares to all the garden ground, And sheds a warm and glittering look Among the ivy's inmost nook. Above the hills, along the blue, Round the bright air with footing true, To please the child, to paint the rose, The gardener of the World, he goes.

During my time spent in Florida, I donated much of my experience to the advancement of art programs at the primary school level. Through the use of art as an anchor for students in education, studies conducted proved a higher percentage of retention in students who had previously scored low on standardized testing.
We all get these feelings, and the best cure is to sit in a comfy chair with a cup of tea and watch some TV.

www.TravelsWithSheila.com What were our thoughts on walking the "Chemin Stevenson" (Robert L. Stevenson route)? If you are REALLY into history and solitude, then this should be up your alley. But we had one other long distance GR, or pilgrimage, to compare with...the "Way of St. James"...also referred to as "Chemin de Saint-Jacques de Compostelle from last year. This 740km route stretches from Le Puy en Velay, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. (We only did a 14-day section.) Watch the video to hear my thoughts and make up your own mind.
www.TravelsWithSheila.com Robert Louis Stevenson of "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" and "Treasure Island" fame was mentally in a bad place and decided a possible cure would be to walk across an area of France. He hired a donkey, Modestine, a set off on a 220 km mile, 12-day trip from the Auvergne region to the mountains of the Cevannes. This route is now called "Chemin Stevenson" and ex-Marine (husband, Steve) and I set off to follow in his tracks... Follow along with us...

Here is a child who clambers and scrambles, All by himself and gathering brambles; 10 Here is a tramp who stands and gazes; And there is the green for stringing the daisies! Here is a cart run away in the road Lumping along with man and load; And here is a mill and there is a river: 15 Each a glimpse and gone for ever!

Bed in the bush with stars to see, Bread I dip in the river - There's the life for a man like me, There's the life for ever. Let the blow fall soon or late, Let what will be o'er me; Give the face of earth around And the road before me. Wealth I seek not, hope nor love, Nor a friend to know me; All I seek, the heaven above And the road below me. Or let autumn fall on me Where afield I linger, Silencing the bird on tree, Biting the blue finger. White as meal the frosty field - Warm the fireside haven - Not to autumn will I yield, Not to winter even!

Windy Nights by Robert Louis Stevenson read by Nigel Planer rnaudioproductions for www.ipodity.com www.allcast.co.uk Whenever the moon and stars are set, Whenever the wind is high, All night long in the dark and wet, A man goes riding by. Late in the night when the fires are out, Why does he gallop and gallop about? Whenever the trees are crying aloud, And ships are tossed at sea, By, on the highway, low and loud, By at the gallop goes he. By at the gallop he goes, and then By he comes back at the gallop again Audio created by Robert Nichol Audioproductions London 2001 media communications ipodity.com allcast.co.uk mp3 ipod download audio book audiobooksrnaudioproductions for www.ipodity.com www.allcast.co.uk
