Hello Groovy People,
It has been a while since I made my last entry. I have been busy of sorts with taking tests, teaching origami, and resting.
I have great news, I have passed two of my tests and I have two more to go!
That is not why I write this entry today.
I have been going back and forth for over a decade with my space book. It was something that was inspired by two very different things:
I know what you’re thinking, how can a Foo Fighters album influence a story? Well, when I listen to music I often imagine people, places, and situations. It can be a love story or an action fight scene that plays out in my head.
The album I mentioned was bought while I was in high school over 15 years ago. I only bought it for one song, Everlong. However, during a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure, I had the entire album play as I sulked; I was 19 at that time and hated going to an amusement park.
Luckily for me, hearing that album play gave me an idea of a space tale that centered around two cheeky girls, and a hell of a lot of intergalactic adventures.
Of course, years went by and I scraped most of what I had. I had finished the entire book, but it was so unfocused that the abrupt end was confusing even to myself.
I decided to reboot it of sorts like I did with Journey’s End. I must say that it is much better with a more fleshed out story. I am nowhere near finished, but I’ll keep you updated!
You know, who you really are.
People will respect you, honor you, value the truth of your own being.
But only if it fits what we value, what we accept, what we cherish and accept as normal
Be yourself, but don’t be too funny, too silly, too honest, too good, to nice, unbitchy, unsnooty, unpretentious, unbothered.
Be yourself, but don’t be too different, be like us, because we only like what we are used to, we only like what reminds us of ourselves.
Be yourself, because it will make you happy, but don’t upset us, or offend us, or make us feel uncomfortable.
Hello Groovy People,
So it is July and things are going well. I’m working a ton and trying to stay motivated with my writing. A few weeks ago I went to Bookcon in New York, and it was pretty interesting. To be honest, travelling and being around large groups of people is mentally exhausting. So I only stayed about 3-4 hours. I did enjoy getting free merch and seeing the different displays. I took a lot of mental notes and will try to plan for next year with possibly a children’s book.
Recently, I have been working on a short story which was inspired by a picture I found online. It is a digital drawing by a really good artist. I’ll get into more detail when the story is finished.
I am also preparing for my 4 tests, 3 of which I am taking this month! I am very very very nervous and anxious, and just about stressed out. However, it is something I must do, and I am prepared to do what I can to make my new goals come to fruition.
I will also try to update my blog more…but we shall see.
Hum of the drum
the melody speaks
to the voices
within my heart
ticking with rhthym
beat by beat
my heart flutters
with the ambient
soothing echo of waves
a crescendo of voices
their laughter infiltrates
stinging with sensations
of happy vibes
begging to be heard
begging to be loved
begging to be felt
I spread my lips to say
I hear you, I hear you
She follows the path of serenity
down to the valley of ease
pastel colors brighten her way
to the ever winding road of peace
love is always a few steps away
glistening the waters with tranquility
she breathes a sigh of soothing sounds
to the fanciful music of laughter that follows
within each breath she takes
the cool air retreats
down her body and into her soul
filling it with the relief of serene stillness
that relaxes her gently
forever at peace
forever in love
she closes her eyes to sleep
Hello Groovy People,
I haven’t been on this in months! Wowzers! I have been super busy with work and trying to go back to school (kinda) and working on making my book, Journey’s End, a hit. Things have been steadily moving forward. It takes a ton of energy to not give up. Besides dealing with a few things, I have been making goals and keeping an optimistic mindset. (Better said than done)
I will have my book, Journey’s End, on the New Title Showcase at the BookExpo in New York! More information coming soon!
Hello Groovy People
So I recently joined SoundCloud and made three tracks. I had GarageBand on my IPod and played around with some buttons. hahaha
It’s pretty fun and I’ve gotten some great comments. I’m not a musician by any means, but I do mash buttons like a pro!
I think this is a great way to spread my creativity via other means. But anywho, enjoy!

By the way, my “artist” name is Digital Flower!
