Bogus thoughts bouncing willy-nilly through my head


It certainly has been awhile since I have posted. Career choices, perhaps, or unnecessary thoughts bouncing willy-nilly through my head have infected my ability to post.Yes, I meant to use the word infected.

There have been a multitude of career choices bouncing around in my head, infecting my thought patterns with bogus ideas of changing my career. I ask myself “What career are you wanting to change? You have no career. You’re retired.”

What my brain has been trying to sort out, probably, I can’t honestly say that I always understand what is on my brains mind, is what I can do with so much time on my hands.

I have tried different things:

Writing short stories

Writing ebooks a little bit longer than the stories. Longer short stories perhaps.

Voice acting, voiceover

Narrating audiobooks through ACX for Audible.com and Amazon, ten books in all, was fun but not very much money for the work involved. (Projects were done on a split of royalties, no sales)

Back to the point. None of these things have been actual career choices, because I am not looking for a career. I’m looking to offer my services, whatever they may and hopefully useful (above all legal, moral and ethical) on a full time basis.  With me deciding what constitutes full time. Not working for someone else but offering expertise where I can links other helpful resources where I can.

I also have a plethora of questions of my own. Many, at the moment, about the recent election. Not political questions but WTH (what, why, where or who the heck?) questions.

•WTH are these protesters protesting? The election was held, a winner was declared. If your candidate didn’t win it doesn’t mean your world will end or it was a personal attack on you. Look at it this way, if you are only protesting because you have no job, perhaps there will be one when the new guy takes office. Wouldn’t you feel silly then?

Anyway WTH said your candidate was supposed to win there are no hereditary rulers in this country, no matter what the losing party thinks. Besides, she will probably write a book about the experience and make millions while all these college students flunk out because they couldn’t handle the stress of their candidate losing and wound up permanently in a crying room with a coloring books and a box of crayons. How does that particular generation expect to handle the pressures of governing the future world when they can’t even handle the stress of someone they don’t even know meets reality face to face?

Oh my! Do you see what I mean? So many bogus and useless thoughts just bouncing willy-nilly through my head. Perhaps I could use a coloring book, a box of crayons and,just maybe, a hug. Sigh!!

Did I mention that I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog?

Next time. Hopefully.

 

An excerpt from the upcoming paranormal/supernatural thriller Castigation by Hubert Williams


The Present Affects Your Future. Remember That In The Morning. I would like to refer you to one of my other blogs for this post. This blog is associated with my Web of Poetry Art and Stories. Since Castigation is a story written by Hubert Williams, me, I thought that it might be appropriate to post this excerpt there this time. Click on Castigation to read the excerpt or you can click on the image.

Castigation


My new book finally has a name, Castigation.

I wrote the following as a prologue to the story. It seems that while writing fiction, some truth has entered, at least what I believe is true. Perhaps it could help environmentalists to understand that, in the end, much of what they force upon the world is contrary to the ways of nature. Nature knows they mean well, but environmentalists are still humans pushing their points to the world. The ways of the world the ways of humankind. The ways of the world will never survive nature.

Read now the prologue to Castigation by Hubert Williams.

Prologue

The word society has a great many definitions. Speaking of human societies only at the moment, in each society there are a select group of people who make the rules and decide who should carry them out . These small societies have, let’s call them, for lack of a better word, ‘leaders’, who decide among themselves what is best for everyone in their particular society based upon the ‘leader’s’ beliefs. Most societies apply punishment in varying degrees to those who break their rules.

For centuries and longer, some people have tried to conglomerate these different societies and dominate them as one mass society under their rule. These attempts have had little or no lasting success. The only common link among these attempts is the deaths of soldiers who choose to protect the ‘causes’ of the societies, the lives of countless innocent people lost because they happen to live in the embattled areas. One other common link to these attempts at world domination is the lives spared for the “leaders” who hide in bunkers while their citizens die by the thousands.

There is one society that humankind have had nothing to do with forming, but many insist on destroying it with their own ideas and ideals that have nothing to do with that particular society’s natural progression. I, of course, am speaking of nature and nature’s ways.

The way of the world seems to be destruction of the way of nature. The ‘leaders’ of the world society throughout history have chosen to ignore the fact that nature always wins. It might bear scars, but no matter what damage nature suffers from the ways of the world, nature always swallows up the perpetrators and uses their remains to nurture new life.

Many societies have come and gone over time. The people of these societies have either been swallowed by the ground or their ashes blown through the air to settle where they became part of new growth in other parts of the earth.

Do you see the patterns here? The way of the world is to control and eventually destroy, their castigation being annihilation. The way of nature is to replenish and balance, each element supporting and supplying the other. Nuclear wars can and will destroy the world as we know it. Nature will survive. It has, for millions of years, survived through catastrophes both imaginable and unimaginable, known and unknown by humankind. Only the results of those catastrophes remained for our wonderment and, sometimes, our enjoyment.

So it is with the story in this book. Although it is fictional, the story does happen repeatedly throughout history with different characters. A story being fictional does not mean that it cannot happen.

Some of the characters in this story have done things during war that nature considers is wrong. Nature is again cleaning up the mess of the world.

Nature includes elements of life and death unseen and misunderstood by humankind, nonetheless they exist. Spirits are called by a shaman, witches or sorcerers, clergy, whatever you choose to call them, to aid  in the preservation of this planet’s nature. Being that shamans and other practitioners of magic, transformation and the many natural remedies are human, their existence and interference can also complicate the ways of nature.

In this story, as in life, nature will prevail. You will have to continue to read the story to find out how.

Don’t forget to read Ramorsia: A new Beginning. Another story of nature allowing ‘society’ a second chance…again.

New update to The Book


Life Has A Mind Of It’s Own will have have it’s new name soon. Until then we will refer to it as The Book

Sheila motioned for Mel to walk with her and they went outside.

“Still think I am crazy about that wooden monkey being cursed?” Sheila goaded. “I didn’t say you were crazy. I said the idea was”, Mel defended himself. They walked toward the edge of the property where Sheila had seen Becca playing with Theresa when they saw a little girl. It was Theresa. Coiled on the stump next to her was a large snake. Theresa said “How is Becca?” The snake lifted it’s head and hissed. When Mel and Sheila turned to stare at one another, Theresa and the snake disappeared. Sheila collapsed on the ground.
