The Special People

The special people... who are they?

The folks with supernatural abilities of course. What brings this about is everything that I have been watching and reading over the last months. Fringe, Haven, The 4400, Alphas and more which I am sure you know about except Heroes I never watched that show. The point is all these people have some kind enhanced ability which many people believe is a work of fiction.

I do not. Even the strangest fiction has some kind of truth kernel.  In case you haven't noticed, I love the supernatural, ghosties, mind readers, psychics, spoon benders, and all of them. Who is to say there are people in this world who can do these things? The mind is incredibly mysterious. It is said animals can see ghosties and sense supernatural happenings. We don't any more about animal brains then we do our own.

Think about it there are names for these conditions. Telekinesis, the ability to move things with your mind. Pyrokinesis, the ability to start fires. Clairvoyance and empaths. Olivia, the main character in Fringe was injected with a chemical to give her the ability to cross between dimensions. And there has been rumors or theories that the government tested stuff on soldiers back in the day (of course it could still be going on, we wouldn't know because that kind of stuff would be CLASSIFIED, stamped in red letters).

It was believed that we only use 10% of our brain, apparently that is not true that we only understand 10% of the brain. So there could be way to tap into the awesome abilities that  are tucked behind some magical neurological pathways. I really would love to tap into some supernatural ability. I could do with out seeing the future. What I would like is to move things with my brain.

Imagine, how great that would be. Someone pisses you off and poof an apple cracks them on the head. You can't reach something from the top shelf and your husband who is much taller is not around, poof the object you want is in your hands. My house would be like that part in Fantasia when Mickey Mouse has all the mops cleaning. I can have the dishes washed and dinner cooking while I am busy working on something else. There are too many positives for having telekinesis.

Hmmm, I should start figuring out how to tap into that power. Until next time, may your spoons bend as the fire grows around you.

Solar Green

Serendipity is made for the movies and
Our desires lurk from dreams into
Lukewarm blankets.
Arrows forged in steel and
Raw glass, gate the entrance

Give him the sacrifice steeped in
Ruby lips. The
Envelope comes in the mail, an
Evangelist looks for money to praise god while he stands
Nude with women quivering in the dark.


It has been much too long since I posted any kind of creative writing and I should post more. I say that all the time but I should follow through with it. And the first order of business is to write another chapter of Suburban Vampires. I started this blog a year ago as a place for the world to see all my writings- poetry, stories, blog posts and opinion articles. Though one goal has been accomplished, I use my blog for my freelance writing career and people actually hire to write things for them.

I hope you enjoy the poem. I just thought I should mention solar green is a type of glass color. And just in case you didn't notice, the poem is an acrostic poem.

Fall comes with a prickling breeze and you are left alone on the beach in your bikini.

So My Head is Much too Full

Ever have one of those days where you have way too many ideas? Too many things to do? Right now, I have  one of those weeks were I am filled with ideas and things I want to do. It can and does make a person go crazy.

Since I am not only a writer but I am a crafter so my mind is normally split in two. I have an online store and my mind is thinking Christmas and Halloween. Things to make for both holidays. Although I did accomplish one item on my holiday to do list. But I get all these ideas to make things and really there is not enough time in the day to do everything at once.  So yeah, I have tons of ideas for my store.

I am a freelance writer and I am working on a job, writing flash fiction stories, should be a snap because the stories are only 1000 words. My ideas suck or I don't think I can do them in a 1000 words and I would rather be working on a story I started a month or so ago because this particular story is going to be a long one. I don't know what will become of it because it is not done yet. Not only that I am trying to figure out how to get my name out there in the world that won't cost me a lot of money. My husband suggested I make a flyer and then go to places and hang it up. Made the flyer even went to Staples for printing but now I got to get out there and start hanging up the flyers.

Now I want to bring your attention to the sidebar, after all my ebooks there is new badge which my husband and I worked on together.  It looks this. My husband suggested I make something on my own for my blog. The haiku comes from the haiku project I worked on last year. In my opinion, it is one of the haiku I really like. I have over 1000 haiku to go through (and I still have three months to type yet) and I am overwhelmed.  Overwhelmed because  I have no idea how to select haiku for the final book. How do I format a book of haiku and how should I organize them? From what I gather on the web, is I should trust my own instincts on my work. And isn't it true? You may read this advice or that advice and nothing makes any sense and maybe doesn't work for you. Writing, publishing, is everything by trial and error. And of course it is a journey for yourself.  I truly believe that my time is coming but before my time comes I have to be ready. As mystical as that sounds, maybe I am not ready yet  or maybe I am. Who knows until it happens.

By the way if you really like the badge please feel free to pass it around.

So I have nothing more to write on here but I have plenty of projects that need attending so I better get working. Until next time, keep the light on because the night is  always full of shadows.
