Hands of Gold | Lyrics
He rode through the streets of the city,
Down from his hill on high,
O’er the wynds and the steps and the cobbles,
He rode to a woman’s sigh.
For she was his secret treasure,
She was his shame and his bliss.
And a chain and a keep are nothing,
Compared to a woman’s kiss
For hands of gold are always cold,
But a woman’s hands are warm
If you are an ardent book reader or fan of fantasy novels, Game of Thrones has got to be on top of your list of must read books, for me it takes the cake. It s not surprising that GRRM has not finished this masterpiece because just the details of character creations and construction of the plot it self must have been an amazing feat to under take at this scale. He has masterfully done justice to the story using his great imaginative skills , When they decided to create a HBO series out of these books they were amazed by the number of characters and the locations they will need in order to create a true to life series. I am glad they managed to create this wonderful work of art using the books and when you apply the details from the books how authentic the shows turns out to be. I experienced the score written for the series first hand by Ramin Djawadi and I got to say its a concert that’s etched in my brain. This is a show that that only could be created when extremely talented folk put their amazing skills together.
The premier of season 7 begins with Arya taking the sweet revenge she longed for and it was truly satisfying to see that winter came for house Frey. Sansa is also now far from the scared little girl she was, she is now a formidable force to be reckoned with and she by far had the cruelest teacher in Cersei, Daenerys is finally home and in her rightful place, She has traveled far and experienced the cruelty of so many tribes of people that taking the iron throne may seem like a walk in the park. This show may even be one of the only shows on TV with so many main roles are women, and not only are they women but in this case they are fearless and brave. This has been a show watched by many who are mostly men but the beauty is GRRM manged to convince the audience, it matters not if the heroes are male or female, flawed or righteous, good or bad, it only matters how much depth a character holds. when he published his first GOT book in 1996 this plot line would hardly seem plausible with so many females in lead roles, but fast forward 20 years people don’t even seem to question his decision to include so many female leaders in Westeros & Esos . I think this is why this book and series are a gem, in a time females are still undervalued as citizens here comes a story to depict the females just as capable, just as ruthless and just as formidable as their male counterparts. I love GOT and I am not ashamed to admit it because it is truly a fantastic story with women leading all the way to the end of the world
