The day will happen… whether you get up or not

“If you have ever come up against Nothing you have no idea how it can scare you out of your wits. When I was a child I used to be afraid of Something in the dark. I know now that the most fearful thing about the dark is that we may find Nothing in it.” Howard Spring

    I enjoyed this post. It’s like you welcomed us all on a little group tour of Ray’s World. When I saw the delightful young lady clothed only in a frilly tutu, I thought right away, how interesting that Ray blogs naked. I’ll have to try that too sans the tutu. Then I read the caption and realized you had just recommended an interesting book for a good winter read. You are a clever person, Ray.

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      me and tutu lol mmm, everything is possible haha

      • Hyperion says:

        I can’t wait to read about your adventures with tutu’s. In Ray’s world, everything is interesting to read about.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Maybe I’ll add tutu (just because we talk about so much lol) in my next psycho tale 😂😂

      • Hyperion says:

        Wooo hooo! I know you will do such a good job, the internet will collapse under the traffic stampeding to your website. I look forward to it. 🤩

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        😬 I don’t think so …the book is not “everyone’s cup of tea” 🙂 but I have “hopes” – for my next, young adult lol it’s very popular genre 😉😉✌️😂

      • Hyperion says:

        It doesn’t matter about those who don’t indulge in Ray’s stories, it’s the same for people who love mystery but will not touch fantasy or sci-fi. What matters are those Ray-Fans that do love your clever humor. We will be there drooling, with darting eyes, and nervous hands waiting.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Haha 😆 yes we are writing what we love 🙂 that’s the point…then of course we want the reader to love it too 🙂

      • Hyperion says:

        I do love your writing so count me in as a member of the Ray fan club.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        You are the member!! 😂 forever & ever 😱😱

      • Hyperion says:

        Wooo hooo! YES! 🤩

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        And thank you 💙💙

      • Hyperion says:

        Welcome Ray. You are a prime source of smiles and laughter along with your wisdom you share and I do appreciate that talent.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Thx & we all are a very “happy” group …and why wouldn’t we be? We r writing (spreading) such positive vibes – ho ho hooo 🕺🕺

      • Hyperion says:

        Yes, we are performing the ethereal Snoopy dance of happiness. 😁
