Cool cosmic laws

How does the universe work? Is it the same as within our governments, where there are laws set in place to keep things out of whack? In this post, I want to discuss 3 super cool cosmic laws: what purpose they serve and how they are completely relevant to humanity. Law Of Balance No, this doesn’t mean the law of balancing on one leg! Although I guess you could somehow...

There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want

I got so many ‘nothings’ on my list, that I decided to drop them all (too many nothings aren’t so healthy), and just rest. You may call it ‘being lazy’, but in my eyes – I have achieved a lot. “Everybody seems to think I’m lazy I don’t mind, I think they’re crazy. Running everywhere at such a speed Till they find there’s no need.” J. Lennon  I know I...

Writing as a team…

Writing a book has probably been on your to-do list for a very long time. It’s your “maybe”, “ah, someday”, “biggest dream,” or “after I finish A, S, and Z”.  You’ve accomplished a lot in your lifetime… but, you just can’t seem to get a book out the door. So why hasn’t it happened? You can do it! Ray is inviting you to collaborate on the book in genres: poetry,...

There’s no story unless something is out of place

That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler Continue sharing some critique on my books. First one, for my debut #ya novel Dulcinea and The Death Code.  1. I think, overall, I would simplify the beginning more, shorten it,...

“The Pearl Territory”, ch 14 – #dialogue

x x x  Pain Berchpull and Boulder Jackobs sit outside under the moon tree eating grapefruits. The moon tree reminds them of a big ash tree, with branches up to the end of the sky. Considering there’s no sky, the branches are shrinking and hanging back, sprouting into the ground around Mara’s Palace. Bou: I haven’t eaten grapefruit in ages! Yummiest fruit ever! Pain: You hate grapefruit. Bou: Yeah, but...

A drop of ink may make a million think…

Frank Prem, in his last newsletter, asked: Do you consider yourself to be a poetry reader, and if so, what sort of poetry do you find interesting to read? Where do you find it? Yes, I am a poetry reader. My first book was a poetry book about animals. I couldn’t read it (yet), but I memorized it (when my parents read it to me), so everybody thought that I...

“The Pearl Territory”, ch 12 – #dialogue

x x x AXA Bank, the conference room. Flo Kottler: Human beliefs and values play a decisive role in our behavior. Remember, Steve Jobs once said, “We made the buttons on the screen look so good you’ll want to lick them.” If you win the hearts of your customers – they’ll come back for more. Trotta is smiling. Mr. Welch is scribbling. Flo Kottler: So… what are our last possessions?...
