After taking a break from Superlative Deviation last week, a multi-part installment of "The True Sacred Space" will be released this coming Tuesday. Be sure to check back then. E.W.
The True Sacred Space: “Do, Don’t, and Monitor”
We have already touched on the true sacred space. Let's start there, because all things come from it. Some of the things I don't allow in my sacred space are: alcohol, drugs, gateway substances, the majority of modern "music", swearing, television, and the majority of modern films. I try to keep a very close eye... Continue Reading →
True Sacred Space: “It’s not the altar”
When people talk about sacred space, they invariably use the term to mean something very stereotypical - a church building, a circle, an altar, a shrine. While those are all nice to look at, what are they truly? Stuff. My mentor Alura has always taught that the spiritual journey is not part of life; life... Continue Reading →
Recently, I posted a literary update on T.W.N. announcing the future release of an new short story. There have been a lot of things to deal with lately in life, and some of my projects (outside of writing) are at a standstill right now. This is more than likely due, at least in part, to...

Lit. Update: Future Steps
New literary update.
It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it.
As I already knew, “self-publishing” requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it’s what I have to do for now. At least I’ve accomplished one of my major life goals and can continue to build on it. It’s wonderful to be able to look back on the progress I’ve made, not just in writing but in life.
Now comes the constant effort needed to balance these new parts of my daily life. Plus, I’m renewing my efforts to get a part-time job to support my financial needs. For those readers who are also hoping to publish their work in some form, I highly advise that you get and maintain a day job. Don’t…

Contest Winner & New Challenge
The contest winners! I think Isabelle’s and Toby’s creations were spectacular and was honored to take third place. Come join us for the next contest. Details are at the end of the post.
My beloved followers! A few things to read this week. I posted another notice up on my spiritual services website if anyone wants to head on over there and read it, if you haven’t already. Here I want to elaborate a little bit on the scarecrow contest that I conducted back in October. I want to announce the winner end talk about a few things while I have the time.
For most of my contests, I usually have a pretty good number of contestants. I’ve done a makeover contest a few times, Plus other raffles that I’ve had on going on my spiritual services website. I still have them and I’m always happy to do them because it gives back to the people that support me whether through coming by and purchasing services, following me on social media and actively participating there by liking and commenting. I love when people…

Announcement / Lit. Update: “Excerpts and New Platforms!”
Update from T.W.N.!
The latest draft of my first poetry book is complete! I am slowly going through a list of possible agents and publishing options.
Over the next several weeks, I’ll be revising T.W.N. a little more. Older content will be removed and new excerpts will debut! For now, I’ll use the artwork that has been on this site before; but know that when the book is released, any images included will probably be different. As I’ve always stated, no copyright violation is intended with the artwork I do share. These are simply pieces I admire and feel compliment the mood and theme of each poem.
I have also created accounts on two new platforms where I’ll also share some excerpts and special posts unique to those platforms. The first is Medium, and the second is My Poetic Side (also powered by WordPress). You can find the links on my “About”…

Personal Post: “Because I’m Here, Too”
The managers of our complex have never been very good at caring for the property. Those of us living here have often complained about the lack of attention they pay to the needs of residents. Recently, we noticed the cleaners who are supposed to spruce up the outer hall of our building hadn't... Continue Reading →
