I see you there talking

you speak loud so all can hear

yet when it is my turn to speak

you quietly disappear

how dare you ignore me

how dare you shun me

how dare you use the words I write

you do this all in spite

in spite of the friendship that could be built

bury that knife of neglect to the hilt

my heart can take it

but soon enough another will read me, will share me

soon enough another will give me wind and you will see

that while you passed me over and did not share me

I was still able to be free

And at that time I will leave you

I tell you know so you will know

It was not for what I did not read but what you did not show

What it takes


In an attempt to not be the spam blogger but also find a balance with what I share the line has become very clear. So here I am sharing with you what it takes to get a rise out of me. What you need to have in order for me to like something, reblog something, comment on something.

Liking something.
I find it fun to like things. Even things that I know bother me but the fact that someone put it up and caused my brain to think about it, no matter how much I hate it or love it. I will like it. Posts that make me think are fun to run into. But that is as far as I will go. I will like it because it made me think.

Commenting on something

I comment on things when I feel strongly about the topic. When I want to bring attention to something or when I feel that there has been a violation. It does not matter to me that I may offend, insult, or basically make someone cry. I could care less. I am commenting my opinion and my thoughts from the research that I have done throughout my life. I do not apologize for what anyone else thinks about the words that I type. I work with words daily, in my writing, in my teaching, in my life. Which is why looking back through my posts I tell people to read, reread, and then read again to what I stated, as to often than not the misunderstanding is that the individual did not read or did not comprehend my words.  But back to the topic at hand. I comment on things that draw me in. And no, it does not have to be words. Pictures, video, heck even a good title has gotten me to read it and make a comment.

Reblogging

I reblog friends that talk to me. That means if we interact with comments the more that I will reblog you. I do not reblog everything as there would be not much time for my own posts to get noticed. I do reblog others more than some but this is due to the fact that some people post more blogs and make a larger signal. But still there must be that line of communication for me to reblog. If we have talked if we have even crossed paths on a post somewhere and started to follow the chances are I will reblog your stuff. Talking helps folks.

Do I expect you to reblog me. I would like it, to that extent I will not lie. But no it is not an expectation. Still the more I reblog someone I do hope they take notice of it and decide that some of my works deserve the notice to be reblogged, commented on and liked. On an interesting topic, my words are mine and if I insult you, treat you like crap, or all in all tell you to fuck off, it is not the responsibility of the post hoster, if I am doing a guest post, or mine. Should you know me then you would understand that I do not insult, treat people like crap, or tell people to fuck off unless they deserve it. And nothing is more deserving than talking BS, trying to tell me or anyone else to change the way they behave because it offends your sensibilities.
When it comes to comments on faith, spirituality, religious matters, I default to my atheistic position. Bring me proof, verifiable, falsifiable, and testable by anyone, anywhere in the world.

When it comes to science, medicine, engineering, theoretical or not, bring me recent published papers from peer reviewed magazines.

If it is just a discussion you want then that is fine. And the final note, just because I do not agree with you is not the reason that I may insult you. Agreement or disagreement on a topic is not enough. So think clearly and post clearly. It is the only way we can keep blogs from degrading to the twitter world where everyone just starts spamming and following for the simple fact of getting more views.

Getting followers is nice but if you have 10000 followers but only 10 views per day, then there is something wrong.

Where would we be without Indie works


I have been hearing a bit about how indie works are not all that good. The movies are low budget and the scripts would never pass to a big time movie studio. The books are crap and need so much formatting that reading it can cause your head to implode.

The common individual tends to make the mistake at least with books as being those cheep put together in an hour marketing books. Those my friends are not indie books. And indie book would be one such as.

These works which can be found on Amazon in e-book format and book format are not marketing books.

Brotherhood (Amber Light Series, Volume 2)

Many people forget to realise that spoon fed stories made into movies tend to run similar. This is because the big studios do not want a public that thinks but rather accepts the trends and buys the goods. If more works were indie style then the studios would have to always provide a bigger material selection and that would go against profit.

True Indie authors and film makers tend to think outside the box. They bring original ideas to life without the limitations imposed on by big money studios. If you want an example of this just look at the summer line-ups. You will see big names like Batman, Avengers, Hunger games. Big effects and catch phrases for the masses. Though the topics online are how similar they are.

If you look back a few years you may remember an indie film that hit it big. It was called Saw this independent horror film spawned a whole series.  After all Indie is only short for independent. There are many low-budget independent movies and books that go on to hit it big. The reason they do is because people take a chance on them.

When you pick up a book or even an e-book take a chance on an independent book. You will be surprised as to how many more real good stories there are out there. Do not let the crap marketers selling get rich quick books as indie books. Those are nothing more than digital pamphlets.

A true independent author provides a good story for an affordable price. For less than a gallon of gas I bring you two books in a series with the third one being released after summer.

Spells of magick and wonder as two opposing forces fight for superiority with love stuck in the middle. Masumi learning new spells is working hard to get back the love stolen from her. The order of the Guardians is revealed to her. The steps taken towards a whole new world can not be undone.
In the meantime Mark is being taken farther and farther away.

The world of Amber Light opens up to show who is fighting for what. The rules of the game change as one is mortally wounded.

Reviewer: I am a pagan and the ceremonies in the book ring true to the craft. The use of light and runes for the magick spells holds true to their intended use.
