“After all, life is a joke” – Thoughts: use your time wisely.

“After all, life is a joke” Charles Chaplin.

As months, years go by, I feel this truth welded deeper and deeper in what could be the remains of my soul.

In a precipitate fall, my mind only craves… silence. I’m not sure we have a fate sewed to our spine or if our nature forces our steps in the direction straight to the same cliff again and again. Is there something we can control? I assume, there is not except for your reactions.

You can’t help the way you feel or see things, at least I cannot. Taking this into consideration, you realise you can really not blame anyone for anything. Everything comes down to a lack of comprehension between individuals, who can’t see one another’s reasons, as a colour-blind can’t see certain colours.

We live our lives fleeing sadness and pain. Like they are not going to follow you everywhere. Tired of looking for myself, I just now surrender to the waves of, sometimes catastrophic, sometimes fortunate, events of life.

Why Write?

If you need some words of encouragement.

Well, what to say here? This is an article I wrote back in 1995 for no other reason than that it was the very first piece of writing I ever had published (3rd prize in a competition for which I was awarded the princely sum of £20). I’ve tidied it up a bit since then, but the text essentially remains the same

Why Write? An interesting question you might agree, but one with a multitude of answers. The same question could well be asked of those who follow other creative pursuits. What compelled Van Gogh or Gaugin to paint, despite their sufferings…

Poetry ~ “The Pact” by Tina McFarlane

This is a poem I love, by Tina McFarlane, you can find her on Twitter

 

I am the angel with tattered wings
The demon with a child’s smile

I own you
Bought for lies and wishes
Like charms on a chain
Around your neck

Which hangs like a noose

I whisper in your ear
Tell you that you are good
Lie to you and say
That you are special

You sit on your throne
Made of bones and blood
And on your head
A crown of angel feathers

BOOK REVIEW – “The Boneyard Chronicles” by Cyprian Wyrmwood – Sci-fi soaked in extreme horror scenes.

THE FORSAKEN CELLAR_THE BONEYARD CHRONICLES_GREGG ZIMMERMAN

BEWARE. **VERY** STRONG MATERIAL. Not for the easily offended.

“The Boneyard Chronicles” by Cyprian Wyrmwood is one the most impressive books I have read. In a good way, a very good way.

When I took the book, I didn’t expect what I found. The beginning is amazing, a flash introduction to what you’re going to be drowned by, followed by a horror tale you won’t be able to put down. The story grows in suspense and “nightmare” as Wyrmwood whispers the events in the bottom of your mind.
The author tricks you, makes you think you’re diving in one dimension but it’s all just… an illusion. This book… soaks you in a grey/spine-chilling/terrifying feeling you can’t escape from.

BOOK REVIEW – Fantasy – “Heavenward: Dark fantasy on Celestial Lore” by Olga Gibbs

51me43vgb0l-_sy346_

This book is a fresh, agile dark fantasy tale, I enjoyed it so much because first, it’s not my usual read, and second, because the author plays with the characters in a way it’s very easy to read, very pleasurable. The protagonist is a broken soul, which allows Gibbs to build many different layers and shades in her personality, reactions and inner thoughts.
Without falling on cliches, the author knows what the reader wants, and implements those traditional factors we all need in a world of fantasy. Who wouldn’t dream about becoming… one of them? Continue reading “BOOK REVIEW – Fantasy – “Heavenward: Dark fantasy on Celestial Lore” by Olga Gibbs”

You are different, you are perfect. – Real tips for those who are lost – Mental Health Awareness

THE FORSAKEN CELLAR_mental health awareness

I work with many different people and I can observe a big percentage of them are broken, depressed, lost. Negativity floods my feeds. It happens when you get out of all that “Be a shark!” “Set your goals” “Be the best, the King/Queen” “Success, Money, Success!!!!” kind of material shaped as “Inspirational” quotes, “successful” bloggers’ articles, business tweets etc.

That, might be useful and encouraging for some kind of people who need a push to achieve and accomplish what they consider success in their lives, but for others, it’s just an opaque veil to cover non-resolved emotional or mental issues, which provides them with a load of “failure” feeling, guilt, low self-esteem and the consequent abandon, confinement and ultimately —depression, under the motto “I’m not good enough.”

This auto-destructive process is due to several reasons: Continue reading “You are different, you are perfect. – Real tips for those who are lost – Mental Health Awareness”
