Circles of Separation: Choose Again

Don’t feed the drama monster. It’s insatiable and has no friends.

Chapter 28: Drama

Amira took every opportunity that crisp, glorious day to be outside. She walked down to the beach and returned via the shops and up the hill taking the longer route past Verloren’s holiday house. There was a For Sale sign in the front garden. She stopped to look at it and wondered why Verloren would be selling. Continue reading “Circles of Separation: Choose Again”

The Love of Devotion: Chapters 3 & 4

Here are the next two chapters of The Love of Devotion (following on from Chapters 1 & 2)


CHAPTER 3: METAPHYSICS

It is, probably, the most spiritually direct of my books, although, not the easiest to read. In the early stages of my writing, many of the existential struggles had been freshly and keenly struggled. I did not try to monitor the language or the intent of what was written. I was simply relaying what I had learned in the way that I had learned it. With time, I realised that my way was, perhaps, not the most accessible to many others. Thus I learned to write in a different way; more subtle and poetic, less mentally demanding and esoteric. For those who have the mental leaning and the spiritual drive, this book will be a friend, as am I. Continue reading “The Love of Devotion: Chapters 1 & 2”
