Hello everyone!

well I’m finally done with a small part of my never ending endeavor that I slowly started back in 2003, an endeavor that only came to light simply because of a poem I wrote that was a bit too long. I ended up cutting the poem in half because the second part of poem seemed to be the beginning of a story. Luckily that day I happen to have plenty of mental energy to spend on the second half of this new story, and before I knew it I ended up adding about 3000 words that suddenly came alive in front of me, words just started flowing out of me so freely without any kind of breaking in between, it all lined up perfectly as if it was all waiting in side of me for years, maybe that's why I've been alone all this time, I would have wasted that passion on someone else.
Of course the writing was littered with misspellings and miss wordings, but slowly I went back to correct them, and so a never ending endeavor started to come alive.

But as fast as it came alive it was swallowed up by time and I simply started to drift away in the waves of life, but i slowly came to it in 2007 not adding much just few key points here and there through the coming years. it wasn't till 2011 that i drove my life head on into this never ending endeavor writing over 150000 words, the story was at full steam almost ready to see daylight, but i was not ready, and I knew I was not a seasoned writer and I sure did not want to challenge that.

At this point I slowly started to hear whispers from people talking behind my back that I was a moocher, a bum, that I liked to be handed things instead of working for them. Harsh words that can take the soul right out of you as if it was a ghostly depression absorbing the life out of you, always bringing you down, unable to cover your ears from such hurting words. I have even heard whispers saying that I should be taking some kind of medication to help me, help me with what i do not know, its if they want me to give up on what I have put so much love and time into and simply start taking medication so I can be helped. as well many people have told me to be my self, when the fact is they cant handle me being myself first of all, so i try to change for them.

A home that commands everything and nothing is the most dangerous thing to an imaginative mind, it is like a black hole devouring every hope, dream and color within you as the days go by without bearing fruit… and you still have that ghostly depression to deal with.

Slowly as I grow closer to finishing my first book, an evil intent started to grow around me, interrupting me daily when I was so far into my thoughts, bombarding me with malevolent interruption after interruption, it was always at the right time when I was about to write something critical for a character of mine, as if this evil intent did not want me to dive deeper into the meaning of the human soul; it all felt as if it was done on purpose, as if I was about to stumble upon the secrets of it all. This all reminded me of a scene from the movie (As Good as It Gets) when jack Nicholson becomes furiously upset over a knock at his door for interrupting him.
But this evil intent failed, it took over ten years to finish but it was worth it, and I gained great experience because of this and I am very happy to be done with book 1. Book 2 story wise is done, I just need to add a few more details to it, hopefully it will be out by the end of the year.

Rings and Seasons of Saturn

On Saturn, the rings tell you the season. On Earth, today marks a solstice, the time when the Earth's spin axis tilts directly toward the Sun. On Earth's northern hemisphere, today is the Summer Solstice, the day of maximum daylight. Since Saturn's grand rings orbit along the planet's equator, these rings appear most prominent -- from the direction of the Sun -- when the Saturn's spin axis points toward the Sun. Conversely, when Saturn's spin axis points to the side, an equinox occurs and the edge-on rings are hard to see. In the featured montage, images of Saturn over the past 11 years have been superposed to show the giant planet passing from southern summer toward northern summer. Although Saturn will only reach its northern summer solstice in 2017 May, the image of Saturn most analogous to today's Earth solstice is the bottommost one.
