The Survey – Results

I managed to find time to review the recent survey results and the results are quite clear; if you want to sell books it really is down to word of mouth and by the way; paperbacks are still popular. At least that is the findings of a survey of 48 respondents to my recent survey. Now let’s be clear about who responded too as that is important. Around 60% were friends and family while the other 40% were random responses from Facebook and other sources. Still, whoever responded (my sincere thanks), the results are useful and intriguing. When asked what sort of book people preferred about 47% would rather have a paperback although around 23% enjoyed ebooks. Hardbacks and audiobooks ran neck a neck at 17% each. Actually, I find

Amazing Coincidence

This last weekend, we went to a fairly remote location north of Prague for some hiking and sight seeing. On the Sunday, we were trying to decide where to stop for lunch. Initially, we stopped at a pub that looked quite nice but we were put off by the interior and so we set off again. A few minutes later, we saw another place that looked OK so we pulled in. Parking was a bit of an issue as the place seemed quite popular. We had our lunch and then we walked around and up the hill a little, taking in the pretty hillside cottages and the view. Then, we walked around the back of the pub/restaurant, got in the car and, after a quick chat and change of plan,

Infinity

Sometimes You just need to laugh Life Irony It’s a just a cold bath You think you are in control You think it’s all about you But fate says, hey Wake up! It’s not about you But me You see I am you reflected Projected Onto a silver screen You wanna laugh? You wanna scream? Don’t – it’s just a silly dream The things you do The things you say Irrelevant anyway Just another way For Fate to have her evil way Laugh Cry It’s all the same to me I am, your are, you see? We are one and in a dream Life Death The coldness of reality Brutality Expressed One way or another You will discover It’s just lame No blame All the same A song to infinity

The Stripper

For many years, I drove everyday – at least once and sometime twice – from The woodlands, TX to the center of Houston. In all of that time, I would listen to the radio and curse that most often, the song played would be never said. I hate that. Anyway, recently, I found out that many of the songs that I enjoyed were by a British band called Bush. Yep- almost all those songs that I itched to know – who? Bush! Strange. There I am in the US and its British music I adore – though I didn’t know it then. It reminds me of a trip I made there for a week and the Partner of our firm took me – somewhat reluctantly – to a strip club.

Project Some Love…

In the recent past few months there seems to be so much fear, hate and misplaced anger around. It is everywhere – politics, social media, the news…… I reckon its all done to control us and stop us from reaching our potential and destiny. The more afraid we are the more negative our thoughts….Those thoughts are an energy that ripples out into the matrix of reality and colors everything they touch. Well, you know, there are enough people doing this – projecting fear and negativity and hate so why don’t you and I do something different. I am an Aquarian after all and therefore a tad different but I reckon it might be fun and spiteful on all the doom and gloomers, hate and divide and woe is me merchants

The Pink Bus

The Pink Bus and Other strange Tales from LaLa Land actually got its start a long time ago. I wrote a short story right into this blog around Christmas 2014 called The Meaning of Christmas and thought I’d keep a copy in my desktop folder just in case. I went back to it a few times, tweaked it, edited it and so on but couldn’t really think how to build upon it. Then, as things do, a few weeks ago, I started writing short stories. They simply poured out of me one after the other and they all seemed to be themed around death, reincarnation, ghosts and supernatural activity and the meaning of life in general. That was when I saw where the Meaning of Christmas belonged…. I honestly think

All Aboard The Magical Mystery Tour On The Pink Bus!

The Pink Bus and Other Strange Tales From LaLa Land is out on Kindle and an audio book is also in the works already narrated by Lorraine Ansell. Thrill to the strangeness, and humor, of the pink bus; shiver and shudder at the creepy mirror antics faced by Andrew; delight in the tale of Deja Vu – and wonder to yourselves about the nature of reality, the capabilities (so often under-utilised) of human beings and the mysteries of dreaming, life and death. Have you ever asked yourself, “What happens when I die? If I just cease to exist then what was the point?” If you have these vignettes/short stories will entertain you. You see, I’m still trying to answer those questions and, with my inquiring nature, I have developed all
