They say the only ones who are awake late at night are the lonely and the loved. The former find it hard to fall asleep when all they have to do is dream with open eyes about their beloved. It’s almost a compulsion.
But what about the lonely? All the artists, the dreamers; the ones who hold tight to a reality they don’t understand and want to explain? Continue reading →

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” — William Goldman
I’m not a big fan of “positive thinking.” Yes, it’s important that we love ourselves, that we try to see all that is good and worthy of gratitude in us and others. I believe in seeing the light in others and offering them the support they need to better themselves.
But I also know that it is extremely important that we be realistic about what is what and who is who.

Despite the 7 different kerchiefs that hang in her closet (one for each day of the week) she saves the lime green and purple paisley one- the one her best friend jokingly tells her “brings out the color of her eyes”- for church on Sunday. (She does this just to see how fast the older, prim ladies glance at her and quickly swerve away in a polite, but nevertheless disapproving, singular movement)
Despite this and her hipster glasses, you see, she’s actually a traditionalist…
She simply will not say the words until he does.
There’s just one problem- she has begun to doubt he might ever say them and was wondering if this, sometimes, “long distance relationship” was worth the sacrifice and wait.

“People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.” ― Neil Gaiman
My dream has always been to write. To publish books. To find readers. To express myself, to inspire, to motivate. To give hope to those who have none, when they need it the most.
Along the years this dream has evolved. Changed. Became more.
Soon the Creative Cloud subscription will expire. This subscription allows me to edit the videos I add on YouTube. This subscription allows me to create the interior formatting for my books, the covers…
It costs $59.
It’s one of those small fees that add up to larger ones that make all my projects difficult to maintain.
But it’s still a fight worth having.
A struggle I have accepted long ago.
As they say, if it were easy, everybody would do it.
I need your help. I did all this with your help, I cannot do it without it.
If you’d like to support my dream, you can contribute any amount you see fit here.
Any amount you consider…
If you think that this dream of mine is worth it.
If you enjoy what I do…
Once again, thank you all for your continued support,
“Where are the people?” resumed the little prince at last. “It’s a little lonely in the desert…”
“It is lonely when you’re among people, too,” said the snake.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
It is said loneliness does not mean having no one around. Being utterly and inconsolably alone. No. Loneliness is the inability to communicate what you feel is important to those around you. Being constantly misunderstood.
