Looking for Love?

There’s a saying that prostitutes (often having hearts of gold) look for love in all the wrong places. That might be true, but if it’s true of the women who work in the “oldest profession in the world,” it’s also true of many others. Social Media has brought this to light big time.  What’s coming […]

ilie cioara -the silence of the mind

Recently on  facebook.com/silencebook  was posted the following quote by Osho: “Unless a person decides that ‘Whatever the cost, I want just to be myself. Condemned, unaccepted, losing respectability – everything is okay but I cannot pretend anymore to be somebody else’… “This decision and this declaration – this declaration of freedom, freedom from the weight […]

Murder, mystery, writing

My bedtime stories are murder mysteries.

It seems more than a few people base their decisions on other people’s experiences; they think […]

ancient secret of the fountain of youth book 2

It could be that some people might consider not buying ANCIENT SECRET OF THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH because of the title. Though once the book is opened, a treasure trove is revealed. Book 1 tells of how it all began. It’s a marvelous story, almost in the category of a delightful fairy tale. It’s a […]
