Follow your own rhythm

Life has its rhythm ad we have ours. They’re designed to coexist in harmony, so that when we do what is ours to do and otherwise let life be, we garner acceptance and serenity. Victoria Moran When you get 5 minutes to spare in the day, take a moment to listen to your heart, to feel its pulse in your chest. You will hear it beating to an almost musical rhythm. Then bring your focus outside...

Ape and God

(a poem by Poetic Murderer)  An ape once in the jungle Awoke to a weird question “What is life”, it thought, And instantly was human. In many ways an ape still It copied things it saw, And sought to understand Their bizarre nature. Inventing fire as to burn Bright like the midday sun; Tools sharp as tiger’s claws And boats to roam the seas. Not satisfied with its creations The ape went on a journey And,...

It’s Sunday! Yay! 💃 Sharing with you my last week. A lot of books (book sale is on the way, 26/2), library visits, my food and training with Centr app (the app is great, because you can find anything there – new recipes, 30 minutes ‘gain more pain’-workouts, mental-health podcasts sessions, mindfulness, advices, interviews and so on.  I’m going to adjust my blog plan for March (here) because I have guests from 5 to 10 March (found out...

Book Review “The Contract: between heaven and earth,” John W. Howell, Gwen M. Plano

Just imagine how cool it would be to witness real incarnation, at the core of God’s house, while...

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, BUT…

Time to choose the best book cover for Dulcinea and The Death Code! Number #1 or #2?  “Aspiring authors, get this through your head. Cover art serves one purpose, and one purpose only, to get potential customers interested long enough to pick up the book to read the back cover blurb. In the internet age that means the thumb nail image needs to be interesting enough to click on. That’s what covers are for.”  Larry Correia...

“The Pearl Territory”, chapter 9 – Cash #privatejournal

I remember her hair – the color of white snow – and vibrant orchid eyes, almost like mosaics, unnaturally beautiful, the mix of forgotten spring and crystalline heaven. I remember her laugh, bright like a birdsong. It was as if her laugh lifted the dark veil from my heart and allowed me to see the world with different, happy eyes. Sunny. Joyful. Confident. A cloudless spring day. This is what I feel when I think about...

Keep going

Wayne Gretzky once said: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” This is about going after what you want…  Sometimes I’m clouted with thoughts like “am I good enough to be here, to tell my stories, to write books, to publish them”, experiencing impostor syndrome. But then I tell myself “Stop it. Look at all your accomplishments. Think – you got where you are now for a reason. Face your challenges and don’t back...
