Good Friday.

It is a quiet Good Friday here in Northern New Brunswick. A bit overcast, but no bad whether yet. The Catholic faith marks the day with many masses and events. I remember my parents, especially my mother, making her meals with no meat. It was a tradition, out of symbolic honor for this mysterious but miraculous man named Jesus Christ. They would buy chocolate to the maximum, for Easter Sunday. Only then would I open the boxes of chocolate. I wonder how did I ever eat all that stuff, way back then. Maybe a kid expends the sugar rush faster than an adult.

Whether people believe in him or not, the story is there and creates much controversy. We seen many people try to probe into the hidden depths of the gospels. Forming their own interpretation of it, based on certain clues or seemingly logical ideas they have gathered over time. They try to recreate their own version of the story, away from the popular and longstanding belief. There is allot of money to be made, in may respects, by changing the story into another kind.

I do believe, all we need to really know is the message behind the parables. He healed the sick, blind, and the paralyzed. They say he even raised the dead. He was not a villain. More like a hero to the people, at that time. While causing no harm, we know what happened to him afterwords. It was all predestined to an end, to create a new beginning for the faithful. The story remains, forever, an inspiration to the faithful yet unimaginable for some. The story was so strong, that it caused all the remaining disciples to die in martyrdom years after. It goes to suggest that they did indeed see, something powerful that had taken place.

Easter is the celebration of life. It is the main message, of rebirth, after the death of Jesus. Spring is the symbolism, in many thoughts also, of the renewal of life. For many of us, it maybe time for reflections on where we are going and what we have done in the past. Are we on the right track? Do we need adjustments? After a long road traveled, maybe needs re evaluation towards a different path. Many use lent to cut off of the sweets. I know of many people who kick their habits during lent. They lose many lbs. I should have done the same...

Besides that, no news on the book. Part 2 is still in the works. Maybe it will arrive this week.  Happy Easter to all, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
