“Lust for life” is for people, who will never ask the following question’s: “Why Life?, What’s the purpose of life?” -Abeltje Quintijn-
I read and saw much, here an selection:
A rare, 281-year-old Stradivarius violin stolen in 1980 from a beloved musician and teacher has been found, according to Nina Totenberg, the National Public Radio legal affairs correspondent and daughter of the late violinist Roman Totenberg. The prized Strad, crafted by the famed Italian luthier in 1734, disappeared after a performance by Totenberg in 1980 in Cambridge, Mass. Later today, at the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York City, the instrument will be returned to his three daughters. Nina Totenberg declined to speculate on its value, though a Stradivarius violin sold for more than $15 million in 2011. (Keep on reading, please click here, thanks)

Always remember this: (Deuteronomy 6:16) “You shall not put the LORD your God to the test,…” Because… (2 Peter 3:9) “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (Keep on reading, please click here, thanks)
Why Is It That Total Rubbish Always Sells?
… Meanwhile, two titles I am proud of, Goblin Tales and Cataclysm simply fail to attract readers, even though in the main, they both have excellent reviews. As the title suggests, the fantasy anthology Goblin Tales is all about goblins. I thought it was high time that a series of stories was written about a band of friendly ones for a change. On the other hand, my novella Cataclysm is a mixture of scifi and a degree of poetic license on my part regarding the ancient history I employ within it, along with a tragic love affair between the hero of the story and a beautiful transgender entity.

You catch it like the flu
When someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too.
I walked around the corner
And someone saw me grin;
When he smiled, I realized I had passed it on to him.
I thought about the smile
And then realized its worth
A single smile like mine
Could travel round the earth.
If you should find the Perfect Church
Without one fault or smear,
For goodness sake, don’t join that church,
You’d spoil the atmosphere.
But since no perfect church exists
Where people never sin
Let’s cease in looking for that church, And love the one we’re in!
With many peaceful blessings

Tomorrow is the peak of the Lions-gateway energy, so making time for extra meditation time is something to sincerely consider. The quieter and more silent we can manage, the more available we will be to whatever. As the energy continues to increase there will be more and more times that it will be sense- able for us to be more available to these gifts. Remember, every little bit helps us to be able to keep raising our consciousness to be able to cope with and take advantage of, this new and exciting metamorphosis that we are going through.
