“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...

Welcome to ‘Nowhere’

“DO WHAT YOU CANNOT DO. SEE WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE. EXPLAIN WHAT YOU CANNOT EXPLAIN.” I remember watching the movie series – The Matrix Trilogy – almost two decades ago. If you watched similarly-themed futuristic motion flicks, you might have marveled at the scope and reach of man’s mind. But the amazing thing is that these technologies have refused to simply remain within the confines of science fiction novels and movies. They’ve proven to be prophetic. Do...

The Last To Fall

As you know, I’m writing “The Pearl Territory” only because I saw Pain with her team in my sleep – like a dream – and I usually don’t see any dreams. I had to share it and I think the story is going to be BIG. And crazy. In a good sci-fi way. “I had a dream, which was not all a dream.” Lord Byron Why am telling you that? Because I saw a dream. Again....

People are not peas

There are two types of people in this world. People who hate peas…and people who are peas. This is a good place to begin if you’d like to learn how DNA, our genes and genetic variations works. Gregor Mendel, the former abbot and a XIX century monk was the one who worked out the fundamental principles of genetic inheritance. Thanks to peas we can read the DNA, information about the body, health and diseases. But human...

Book Review “The Nature Fix”, Florence Williams

“At the end of the day, we come out in nature not because the science says it does something to us, but because of how it makes us feel.” Strayer In the last 50 years, our lives have dramatically shifted indoors. Noise, smoke, grey fog, heat, tiger mosquitos, mutant mushrooms, plastic, more plastic, and other crap has strangled our complex and beautiful nature to death. Almost to death. Florence Williams gives you the possibility to take...

There’s no planet M

“And then the earth, the world, the planet, the galaxy, and the entire solar system went crazy.” Robert Ludlum Did you ever hear of the book – men are from Mars, women are from Venus? You probably did, if you’ve had relationship troubles and needed a book to understand your partner. But during your weird shower moments, you might have thought – can men ever be from Mars? Can they have the smug, red planet as...

‘Shibui’ yourself …before it’s too late! 

What is your ‘manifest’ of TODAY? How do you reduce your selfishness? Do you embrace the simplicity? Ok, send me the list of your daily desires. So many??? Ouch! That’s where the problem lies.  “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” E.F. Schumacher As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe...
