2ND NOVEL AND STUNNING PICTURES

These are 4 amazingly beautiful pictures, sort of weird and wonderful. I like them because they remind me of my 2nd novel due for publication next month. We are presently designing the cover and I am sure it will be stunning, maybe more so than these exquisite pictures. I can only hope. Sometimes when I look at pictures I become so inspired to move along in a more creative field. The energy released from pictures of this nature is absolutely spectacular for me, and I seem to leave this planet and stay in the creative zone for hours, totally unaware of my surroundings or sounds. I love it! My family hate it! Next novel is the 2nd one in the series - The Anglurian Story - Book 2 - Sipho and the golden nails. The story tells of the daring and sometimes dangerous adventures of the three human-alien children as they journey from Africa, to Israel and England.

Amazing Story

HOW DID THEY KNOW? SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE THAT IS GREATER AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE. THE ELEPHANT'S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW ????????? Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller The Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003 . On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. . He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons & numerous elephants. Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend'. A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House. Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence 's passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion of the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly - for days - Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house. Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years! But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home............

Meaningful words

Written by a 90 year old This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay cheque. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't! take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Hello everybody,  this is the link to my website.  On this website you will find all the details of my novel, "The Angurian Story - Book 1 - Sipho and the Star Pearl".


This engaging, easy-to-read adventure, with aspects of science and historical fiction, centers around an adolescent hero whose mission is to eliminate evil from Earth. He is chosen by the Anglurians, aliens who live on a sister planet to Earth, along with two English children, Emma and Irma. Together, these three extraordinary young ones embark on a journey from serenity, straight into the depths of hell. Their terrifying mission is to retrieve objects called Star Pearls from Satan himself. Satan has stolen these objects, and by retrieving them, the children will preserve goodness and eliminate evil on Earth. This unique story casts our children as the heroes. It speaks to a greater theme of trusting children to be the heroes of our future, and that young people have a special ability to combat evil. It is a fast-moving, exciting story that is sure to entertain all ages.


 I am currently completing the 2nd novel in this series and will post details soon.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blogs.




Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize. Your words are the greatest power you have. The words you choose and their use establish the life you experience.
~Sonia Choquette 

Those words are so true and if we had to consider how we use our words, I believe our lives would be so different.  So just for today I am going to try and think before I speak.


I take the good with the bad,
Smile with the sad,
Love what I got, and remember what I had.
Always forgive, but never forget,
Learned from my mistakes, but never regret.
People change, Things go wrong,
and I just remember...Life Goes On

Interesting photo

Hello everybody,

I am a member of a few social websites and have over time discovered some really great friends all over the world.  I love my cyber friends and enjoy communicating with them.  Learning about the different cultures, their countries and being able to strike up a few really close relationships is all worthwhile.  Occasionally we exchange photos and if we do find something interesting we share these photos.  Well this morning a friend from Denmark sent me this photo and I think it is amazing, so true and I thought about the message and decided to share with you.
Have a great Wednesday.

Hello Everybody,




I am new at this and will do my best to make a success of this blog, hopefully keep this page entertaining.  I am presently busy with a new business adventure.  I call it an adventure because it seems that way to me.  All very exciting, plotting and planning the next move and edging forward to hopefully a huge success.  I will keep you updated as we make progress. I can truly say that on my own I would never succeed, it is indeed the warm enthusiasm I have from trustworthy wonderful friends.

I want to share these beautiful photos with you. When I look at them, an amazing peaceful feeling flows through me and causes me to smile and be thankful for such great blessings.  I might never get to visit such delightful places but am sure grateful to be able to see them on the internet.
