Bohemian Love has arrived…

I am delighted to finally announce that my newest book of poems Bohemian Love is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. It is a dreamy collection of love poems with tales from Paris and an inside look into the lives of beautiful people with a lot of memories of the passions of young love.

Bohemian Love Poetry Book cover

When you meet the love of your life everything changes. You never see life the same way ever again…

Bohemian love is more than peonies on doorsteps and champagne breakfasts. It is an irresistible force that changes you forever.

There are tales from Paris where charming artists meet beautiful muses. Bohemians fall in love at first sight, though that love can lead to obsession.

This collection of poems evokes the scent of desire, shadow of loneliness and pain of thwarted love.

Bohemian Love will pierce your heart. It will fill your life with unimaginable passion and is a destiny for the chosen few.

My initial reluctance…

Another blogger confession going deeper on the last post.

Originally I felt compelled to blog because I really didn’t have any friends, moreover nobody to talk to about the things I like and have that dialogue. There was not and still not one soul on this planet who knows what my favourite song/film/book is. Sometimes facing this reality feels devastating.¬†In the Western world, generally speaking, you have that identity, people that know and care about you get the privilege to hear and share these treasures. So how do you cope when you don’t have that? Enter blogging….

I guess that’s why I’ll blurt out a song with it’s lyrics across this blog. Yet also the reason why I have shied away from writing about the things I love on this website. Putting this kind of information out there actually limits my chance of true connection. Because heck people could just Google you…

I’m still stuck in that same¬†unknown state. Of course I appreciate anonymity. (I don’t like taking selfies.) But it’s that human connection of being known by a small¬†circle of friends that is typical¬†of life in a ‘developed’ country that I still continue to lack despite my efforts to redress it. I’ve lost out on a lot of life and maybe the balance doesn’t really get restored and that’s what I’m trying to deal with. You have to give up the hope because the hope is what can weigh you down.

Ultimately it is blogging that has paved the way for me get certain types of opportunities and increase my chance of some kind of interaction with others. So I have to give it all that I have. I have to give up the hope and the dream that someday, somehow I would actually make genuine connections where there’s a real like-mindedness because now that I’m online, sincerity from others becomes more hazy…

 

 

Blogger confession:

Hey guys,

So 2016 has been a year of highs that were astronomical and unpredictable as well as full of lows. My promise for 2017 is to make this blog more focused on championing awesome talent, helping you to discover new talent and showcasing hidden treasures.

I don’t feel I’ve made this happen as much as I’d have liked this year partly because I was so busy and my poetry took off in ways I couldn’t imagine and also because of a secret.

The reveal…

s9cc2skysjm-green-chameleon

I have major reservations about being online, being a blogger, having my face on the internet. Much of this drive to write online was naively fueled by wanting to make friends.

A dread about writing online the things I like¬†is that someday just when I think I’ve made a real connection with someone it turns out that the person has probably just read about me online and the connection and seemingly similar interests were fake or perhaps they sincerely did like me/want to get to know me, so read about me on my blog¬†as a way to get to know me and ingratiate themselves to me.

Either way, I’m done. I’ve just given up the hope. You end going that long without friends and the opposite sex that having it in your life would only become a hassle. A foreign concept.

So here goes, in 2017 I will ensure to give you satisfying and enriching reviews of the books, film and art that I really like. I’ll just put it out there…

It’s really just all about My Readers because without you I wouldn’t be able to write books. You guys me the world to me!

@realDonaldTrump is evil. Remember evil lives and evil loves…

As I wrote this time last year in November 2015… Link here.

#JustSaying

All he has to do is keep quiet be a little more mild-mannered and BOOM everyone will think he’s an upstanding gentleman and credible. I sincerely and seriously believe he will become President. I’m not saying I want him to be. It’s purely on the basis of his huge global platform, his ingrained presence in many minds and deep understanding of financial engineering and contacts combined with his showmanship. It doesn’t matter that people hate him he is a candidate unlike any other: an irresistible combination of outrage, charm, unsettling/non-specific policy positions plus his recent tactic to inject some sensibility is a #winning formula. He’ll be golden.

I always knew Trump would get this far, but y’all didn’t believe me. How did I know? Because I understand the power of celebrity. ‘Celebrities’ are a dominating force, I wouldn’t underestimate them.

Above in the interview on Good Morning America (GMA) in October 2016 is frightening because Trump seems so decent, but he’s NOT, he’s just playing a game that many are falling for.

Keep in mind that evil lives and evil loves. Evil is deceptive, evil is subtle. It’s not just serial killers that are evil. There are many forms of evil but you are all too blind to see it. In previous years it was apparent Trump had a dark side, anyone can see he’s a bully, he’s selfish and cunning. I just assumed he was greedy and heck maybe has the odd extra marital affair and is an ego-driven maniac. He’s worse. He’s uncontrollable, manipulative and cannot be reasoned with. He would be impossible to cooperate or work in any functional capacity in the White House. Yes he’s charming, yes he’s glamorous and has built an impressive Real Estate career but you need to understand the vested interests of a soul. Previously I just though he was power-hungry. Yet step back and take a moment to reflect of his life. He’s¬†70 years old and amassed a huge fortune, he’s had the beautiful wives and accomplished children he has built a global empire… What is he after? There is no answer. Trump is not even in the driving seat of his ambitions, he’s just a maniac.¬†He’s illogical, unreasonable and dangerous. This recent disclosure by Richard Branson should raise concerns. He is not an atypical avarice-filled businessman there’s something darker in the surface akin to Hitler and Mussolini.

If he really wants one last final challenging goal in life why not harness his real estate acumen into BUILDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR LOW TO MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES? NOT run for Presidency.

America needs to rise above their craving for entertainment. Politics is not an entertainment arena it’s a decision-making one with ramifications worldwide. One must be prudent and rational when selecting a President not seeking novelty, drama and excitement. Such preferences belong to imbeciles. Don’t be one of them.

A notable factor of¬†Kim Kardashian being held at gun point and staying off social media has helped prevent the possible momentum of her potentially and nonsensically blurting out foolishly that she may vote for The Donald or compliment him in any way. ¬†(Don’t underestimate celebrity- God forbid she makes her social media comeback in the next few hours¬†and shows her support for this maniac.)

Back to Trump, his treatment of women has been despicable and women working in the White House have every right to be fearful of him, men too because he’s a manipulator and a¬†LIAR: he cannot be trusted. Even if the natural check and balances of government is applied he could still wreck havoc in power purely from his remarks in the media it would offend fellow world leaders and institutions the world over. He could ignite anger and terror on foreign nations and America’s reputation will be forever ruined if he is elected as President this week.

The only hope we can glimmer from his dangerous astronomical rise in politics is pray, and I mean pray that he is only being put so highly on a pedestal as one final attack by karma to push him off it this week. It’ll be a fall to ruin him though it will not stop him. He would only cunningly use it to his advantage and incite rumors of corruption in the voting system. Riots would break out. Donald can appeal to the masses who lack critical thinking skills as his vicious accusations sound like profound revelations on unknowing minds. Donald Trump would say: “Oh I didn’t win, you see that, American democracy sucks. The media are out to get me. They set me up. Cast another vote, do a recount….” And he would go on and on. Surely enough media outlets have rightly openly supported Clinton. YET FOOLISH MINDS WOULD FALSELY ASSUME CORROBORATION¬†AS A SIGN OF CAUSATION THUS PROOF.¬† People could see this open support for Hillary as evidence that Trump was right in saying the media are turning against him. Well excuse me Mr Trump but YOU HAVE BEEN AGAINST EVERYONE: people of various races, socio-economic backgrounds and disabled people the list is endless. That is evil. See the sign folks. When he mocked that disabled reporter that was the absolute last straw for me.

Those with lesser cognitive analytical skills who have doubts in the system have sadly believed the outrageous accusations and or claims made by Trump throughout his volatile campaigning as true because they lack the skills to analyse and understand the concept of bias and manipulation tactics. Donald blurts out contaminated truth and lies with the potent cocktail concoction of fiery speech and moments of calm.

He is detrimental to Western democracy and if he gets into power chaos will ensue on a global level. Trump will ask students to repay their loans at an astronomical level and time period. People will revolt. We have never been more ripe to have the new world order implemented. The dollar could easily collapse at any point with him in power. You will want to flee the land of opportunity with Donald in power, if you don’t feel like fleeing he’ll sure as hell want to kick you out. Stop the breaches in logic America. Analyse Trump’s behaviour, see him for what he is: a maniac. You do not understand how easy it is to ruin¬†American society how easily water sources, electricity and such essentials can be cut off and controlled purely for someone’s financial gain. Think Trump wouldn’t do that with his array of connections? Think again. And think correctly this time.

There is nothing to gain having Donald Trump in power. Nothing.
He’s a Master of Manipulation. He’s playing you all BIG time.

Sadly Hillary doesn’t have much appeal, but at least with Clinton it will be same old same old. She’s your standard politician and the sane option.

Despite my earlier belief in a Trump prominence in the run up to the elections that I could forsee ahead of everyone else as I just always knew Trump would get this far. I actually now  believe Hillary will get the job. 

I truly believe and know that this week TRUMP WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. He won’t just lose the election he will lose his wife, family, colleagues and wealth. His business will crumble he has tarnished the brand he has so tirelessly built his whole life. Trump will be a laughing stock. Art of the deal: comeback NO more. He is surrounded by intelligent people, his wife must feel so much shame and no doubt this campaign has been devastating on their marriage after the allegations and audio and video footage of his misogynistic treatment of women and sexual harassment of women. His children probably secretly despise him and after his failure at running for Presidency they will depart to save their career and livelihood. Get ready to be alone Trump. Nobody wants you.

We have to take a moment to consider and appreciate the fact that we currently have Barack Obama as US President. That was a landmark and incredible decision the American voters actively selected twice! The American people chose right and I believe the American people will choose right again by voting for Clinton and making Hillary the first woman President of the United States.

America, your country and the rest of the world needs your sensible and reasonable compliance to vote for the logical, sane and right candidate.

God Bless you America

Vote Hillary Clinton tomorrow!
