About Raina Nightingale

I (Raina Nightingale) have been writing fantasy since I could write stories with the words I could read (the same time that I started devouring books, too). Now I write “slice of life” and epic dawndark fantasy, for fiction lovers interested in rich world-building, characters who feel like real people, and spiritual experiences. I think giant balls floating in space can have the same magic that fairytales teach us to look for in oak trees and stars. I have a lot of universes and while not all of them have giant balls floating in space, most of them have dragons of one sort or another!

  1. Wow Raina, I read your kind comment on my blog and had to visit “anything” entitled “ enthralled by love”! Just the titles of your posts are speaking to my heart. It is very late and I am off to bed, but will be back to read what looks like a feast of love. God bless you! Forever be He praised for His Love and Mercy! ❤️

  2. Dear Raina Nightingale,

    Hello! I would like us to be acquainted more formally here.

    Referring to our earlier communication with respect to my picture in which you have shown a keen interest as follows:

    Can I keep the picture? It’s actually kind of pretty…

    Not sure what the red sign means, though.

    The answer to your question is definitely affirmative. Furthermore, I have brought the picture right here not only for you to keep but also for us to echo and encapsulate your following fine words:

    I’ve never found it so. Often, I look at a tree or a sunset, and I just want that one moment to last forever. I want to enjoy it forever. I don’t mean like a passing succession of moments, I mean that moment. That glance, that enjoyment. It might not be infinite, but it’s certainly too great to pass like it does. I want to keep every good moment – at least – forever and ever, never to pass, never to change. I find time so limiting. It’s always passing, and even so, there’s not enough of it.

    This experience is actually the inspiration for one of the stranger kinds of being in some of my fantastical universes. 😀

    The red sign is a Chinese word “永” meaning “Forever” or “Eternity”.

    Yours sincerely,

      1. Dear Raina,

        Yes, it is. How wonderful and challenging it must have been to put yourself through the pace of learning such a difficult language as Chinese!

        There is a specific post of mine where you can see my Chinese calligraphy as well as my detailed explanation and translation of a Chinese poem. The post is entitled “Strong Wind Knows Tough Grass” and contains some strong moral messages:

  3. Dear Raina,

    Furthermore, the picture contained in my previous comment is accompanied by my musical composition entitled “Till Eternity“, which is available at my post of the same title:


    I look forward to interacting with you at the said post, as I am keen and curious about what you will make of my said post symbolically, intellectually, aesthetically and spiritually.

    May you have a lovely week!

    Yours sincerely,

      1. Dear Raina,

        You are very welcome! I look forward to your visiting my said post and reading your thoughts and feedback on the musical composition and other bespoke features there. By the way, whenever you visit my blog, I would like to recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen to view the rich multimedia contents available for heightening your multisensory enjoyment at my blog, which could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately.

        Furthermore, since my intricate blog contains advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations, it is advisable to avoid viewing the contents of my blog using the WordPress Reader, which cannot show many of the advanced features in my posts and pages. It is advisable to read the posts and pages directly in my blog so that you will be able to savour and relish all of the refined and glorious details. Please enjoy!

        Yours sincerely,

      2. Dear Raina,

        Hello! Since you like to experience (or entertain the idea of) eternity, I would like to gently introduce you to the sonic dimension of eternity as follows:

        If you would like a much longer sonic glimpse into eternity, then I shall oblige your request in my next comment.

  4. Dear Raina,

    Hello! I thought of you today and therefore decided to pay your blog a visit. To my plesant surpirse, you have been highly productive in publishing new posts and pages since I last commented here three months ago. Well done! You have come a long way towards being an ever more mature blogger. Correspondingly, your blog has certainly come a very long way, not to mention that it has kept you occupied and out of mischief. 😉

    In addition, I would like to invite you to my newly published post, which also features my musical composition entitled “Till Eternity“, where I have changed the word “give” to “serve” in the fourth line of Verse 3.

    This newest and much longer post contains many brand new features that may greatly captivate you in various ways. The post is entitled “🏝💗 Romancing by the Beach and Sea with True Love and Reminiscence 😶‍🌫🐚🐟“. It is available at

    🏝💗 Romancing by the Beach and Sea with True Love and Reminiscence 😶‍🌫🐚🐟

    As usual, please turn on your finest speakers or headphones, as my post will be playing music to you automatically.

    The post also contains another composition of mine entitled “Lost In Love“.

    Please enjoy!

    May you find 2022 very much to your liking and highly conducive to your travelling, writing, reading, thinking, researching, critiquing and blogging whatever topics that take your intellectual exploration, creative whim and spiritual growth!

    Yours sincerely,
