The Worms

inspired by Charles Bukowski “Burning in water. Drowning in flame” I sit among the worms
 Telling myself: this world is upside down
 And tomorrow When I wake up Everything that stinks and crawls inside of my head Will die. I sit and wait. My heart is hanging from the mouth for so long It has forgotten how to behave when the hunger begins and the sorrow eats you up. Just disturbing, you know… The clock is ticking. The...


Book cover alert!

I’m planning to change my “Absurd” book cover, because (so far) it sells better than Dulcinea. And Dulcinea got a professional cover already. So, there’re 8 variants. Look at the first 4 below. What do you think? I liked the cover with the red hair (girl), but I said to May (designer) it is ‘TOO GIRLY’ 😱🤪💃💃, so she provided 4 more variants. Help! 😂😂😂 and 4 more: WHAT DO YOU THINK? Cuz I’m going a bit ‘crazy’...


“The Pearl Territory”, chapter 10 #dialogue

Quite raw piece, 2000 words. I’ll attach the edited variant (in Word) later this week.  Circle Impro.

The genuine heart of sadness – bodhicitta

People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. Carl Jung Bodhicitta is literally a heart – our wounded, tender, some way melancholic heart. A heart that has desire and determination to overcome all the limitations of life (or our Ego) to become whole. A heart full of unconditioned love and sadness. It has...


A good book is more than just a well-written story

The book Dulcinea and The Death Code is ready to see the world. It is not perfect, but it is fun… believe me! The target audience is teens from 12 to 20-years-old and old young adults (maybe you?). I don’t know if this book is good enough for so called “YA” fiction, because I don’t read #youngadult myself. Ouch! 😱  But if you’d like to check out the novel written for teens from the author who...
