Mini Interviews with A Few of My Fellow Spontaneous Liaisons Anthology Authors



Today on ABA, I’m thrilled to have with me a few of the wonderful co-authors from the Naughty Nights Press Spontaneous Liaisons Anthology. After the blurb for the anthology, I’ve listed the individual authors by name, their answers to my two questions, a blurb for their individual story and author links.  Enjoy, because you just never know what will happen when you get all spontaneous!

SPONTANEOUS LIAISONS, A Naughty Nights Press Anthology Blurb:

The Authors at Naughty Nights Press bring six "Spontaneous Liaisons" to wet the whistle, get the inner fires burning and perhaps even leave readers thinking of their next quick encounter.


These sizzling, to-the-point, erotic rendezvous are each a perfect read for busy people on the go. 
From entrance to exit, this collection of titillating stories, by some of the best erotic authors, are sure to have readers browsing the nearest virtual bookstore to buy more of their spicy work!


A perfect lunchtime read. - Author J.D. Morgan



Juicy, kinky and sure to boost up your daily drive! - Mason Mallory, Hamilton Spectator



A hot read on a cold night. - Cassandre Dayne, Author


Mini Interviews:

#1. Author Name - Vampirique Dezire
Kiki: What is the first thing I think of when you say Spontaneous?

Vampirique Dezire: That is so easy; the first thing to come to mind is our new anthology, Spontaneous Liaisons *laughs wickedly*

Kiki: Share with me a sexy spontaneous liasion you've either been part of or fantasized about. You don't even have to admit to which it is, that is unless you want to *winks*

Vampirique Dezire:  My secret liaison…hmm I know when I was writing Summer Rain – Fiona’s Story, I imagined myself in Fiona’s position with Brant but I think that was more to the point of I like the whole idea of eyes meeting across a room, the sexual energy drawing you both together with its unseen fingers. Caressing your nipples, making them ache to be touched as they become hard points.  Panties rapidly becoming moist as you imagine him using his fingers and lips all over your body. Mouth watering at the thought of taking him into your mouth and paying homage to what you know will be a decent size cock, hiding in his jeans. Then when your body gets to the point where if you don’t climax, you think you will expire from the sheer thrill  of it all, he takes you, thrusting his hot, velvety shaft, into your wet, volcanic hole in one swift, hard almost violent motion. Meeting every one of  his thrusts with one of your own, feeling his cock scrape against the insides of you, making you tighten up around him, fingers digging into his ass cheeks trying your hardest to pull him in closer. And that’s when it happens. Your toes begin to curl, arching your back, trapping him as he is buried deep inside, your vaginal muscles undulating along his cock, that perfect wave of an orgasm ripping through your body. He becomes rigid, his eyes blazing as he looks into yours, a guttural groan rings in your ears as he comes, his seed spilling forth in powerful bursts until he is spent.

Blurb for “Summer Rain, Fiona’s Story” By Vampirique Dezire
It is believed that when the winds have blown the earth dry and the sun creates an internal heat, deep within its core, that a rainstorm will come, one like nobody has seen before. During the last of summer’s hot, fiery kiss, the rain will sluice over the earth’s body, making love to it, allowing the heat of pent up sexual tensions to be released by those who are caught in it.

It is the last days of summer and Fiona has organized to meet up with Jake, a guy she met at a nightclub. Needless to say, Fiona’s date doesn’t arrive but she gets plenty of admiring glances from the men and women around her. After waiting a period of time, Fiona decides to leave the restaurant and begins to take a walk down the street refusing to let her day be ruined.

During a sudden downpour, Fiona seeks shelter on a building site. Unbeknownst to her, Brant one of the builders waiting out the storm sees her taking off her wet clothes. As he watches her, he notices a beam about to give way just above her. Before it collapses on top of her Brant rushes in to save her, suddenly the two strangers find themselves in the midst of making hard, passionate love...their lust and desire taking over their very beings.

Blog2: From The Inside – http://biauthor.blogspot.com

#2. Author Name – Abby Hayes
Kiki: When I say the word "Spontaneous" what comes to your mind first?

Abby Hayes: Possible danger, but lots of fun regardless *giggles* It means going for it without stopping to think about the consequences first :)

Kiki: Share with me a sexy spontaneous liaison you've either been part of or fantasized about. You don't even have to admit to which it is, that is unless you want to *winks*

Abby Hayes: Well, actually, I was sitting in the food court on my college campus when I came up with the story, Fast Food on Campus for this anthology. So actually, the whole story is a ‘spontaneous’ fantasy that just popped in my head.  Wish it were a memory! LOL

Blurb for “Fast Food On Campus” by Abby Hayes
Friends, working together on campus, come together, finally, hot and fast, several times, after confessing their feelings about each other. A quickie on the freezer at work, groping during the car ride home, just inside the front door of his place, are just a few of the sexy yet quick encounters Devin and Amanda have. Promises of longer, of tomorrows are still whispered though…

#3. Author Name - CM Owens
Kiki: When I say the word "Spontaneous" what comes to your mind first?

CM Owens: Spontaneous to me is about doing something you wouldn't normally do. It's about saying "to hell with the consequences" and going for it. Whether it be jumping on a train for an impromptu weekend away or buying an expensive outfit.

Kiki: Share with me a sexy spontaneous liaison you've either been part of or fantasized about. You don't even have to admit to which it is, that is unless you want to *winks*

CM Owens: I once got all dressed up, jumped into my car and drove for four hours to pay a surprise visit to my boyfriend. I'm not usually one for rash actions, I like to plan and I suck at keeping secrets, so I really had to trust my instincts and resist the urge to phone him and check it would be okay. When I got there I phoned him from the doorstep, said "guess where I am," and knocked on the door. I would tell you what happened next, but I'm not one to kiss and tell.

Blurb for “Unprofessional” by CM Owens

When an actress fails to turn up for her part in a sex scene, Carrie has to choose between stepping into the spotlight or letting her friends down. But, she’s not an actress; her place is behind the camera, not in front of it. Can she keep it cool with actor Jake or will things get unprofessional?

#4. Author Name – Kiki Howell

I was considering interviewing myself, but let me just say as far as the questions go that usually life inspires writing. But, if you read the blurb to my story, and know I have two teens boys in my home, well I am this time hoping that my story inspires my life!

Blurb for “Reinventing the Quickie, The Diary of Sam” by Kiki Howell
Samantha Donovan writes in her diary when she can, and this year’s new book she is starting by discussing New Year’s Resolutions: her failures with them in the past and what she wants this year as a working mom with teenagers in the house. She decides it would be great to combine a few of things, like weight loss and more sex, by offering her husband an arrangement of quickies in their busy lives, sort of a sex diet she once read about. Of course her hubby is all for the idea, but with their crazy schedules, it proves harder than they thought. So, they get more creative, use their time more wisely, and even kick up the quickies with little themes. By the end of January, things are suddenly getting sexier and sexier in Samantha’s life…

Guest Post by Cesar, Author of "Book of Prophecies"


Final Piece of the Puzzle

My life could quite possibly be called a tale of two halves.  The first part walking a Christian life, the second part a wild life.  But for the last two years I have been in limbo, and I would say that it has been out of choice due to a previous build up of disastrous situations.  You see even though I had gone off to live a wild life and dramatic life, I had never stopped believing in God, but I had stopped believing in myself.  These two years have changed everything, my life will never be the same.  Most dramatically the final piece of the puzzle fell into place when I bought and read the complete prophecies of Nostradamus.

It wasn't necessarily the prophecies which I read that effected me, although they were interesting, it was more about the preface of the book which is made up of letters that Nostradamus had written to his family and others.  The letters themselves could actually be called quite cryptic, and there is a huge depth of knowledge behind the words.  But as I read it, suddenly all my life experiences started to make sense.  I am sure others may have read the same words and been inspired, but this was more than inspiration, something was happening to me on a spiritual level.

Things changed for me, sure, spiritually I have always been a little different.  But now it felt like my knowledge was complete, the puzzle of understanding who I am was complete.  It was then that I understood that I had been destined to write a Book of Prophecies, and even though the book is now finished, I still struggle to come to terms with it.  Mainly because in my own life I stand in a strange place; I have a Christian family and many non-Christian friends, yet here I am with my Book of Prophecies that may never be fully accepted or understood by either of the groups.  Don't get me wrong, they gladly support me, but they may never understand it.

About the Author:

Cesar has a very experienced background in the spiritual world. He was brought up in a Christian family, but branched out from that base as he got older, seeking answers about the world around him, and the spiritual world around him.  In his mid-twenties dramatic events occurred in his life which challenged his very existence, but he learned from these experienced and most of learned that how that life is not just in our own hands.  Now Cesar is a firm believer that everyone has their own path to walk in life, and part of that walk is all about the choices that you make. Some people choose a good life and some a wicked life, but most of us live the life in the middle, influenced by the world around us and our own upbringing, Cesar understands that life is simply not black and white.
  

About the Book:
Title: Book of Prophecies
Blurb:
A collection of brand new Prophecies about the World, about the World's Economy, about Disasters and Wars, about Terrorist attacks and about survival itself In this book Cesar takes prophecies to the next level. Each individual prophecy comes with two interpretations for readers to analyse. At a time where everyone still loves to talk about Nostradamus, comes this intriguing book full of clues and cryptic images that is sure to broaden the imagination of those who believe in prophecies ...Each passage forces thought by the reader, if not contemplation about the underlying lessons and the hidden clues...

ABA AUTHOR INTERVIEW & GIVEAWAY WITH ANDY HOLLOMAN



Kiki: What is your favorite genre to read in, and what is it about that genre that attracts you to it?
ANDY:  By far my favorite genre is spy thrillers.  I enjoy these types of thriller because they require a complex plot and characters whose motives are often in question.  Spy thrillers are also good brain teasers and I enjoy plot twists and surprises.

Kiki: What is your favorite author to read in that genre, and why? Also, please tell me a little about the best book by that author you have read.
ANDY: John Le Carre is the only spy thriller writer that I read.  I’ve been captivated by his story telling for my entire adult life.  His story plotting is the very, very best.   My favorite of his novels is A Perfect Spy, which is a rich story with complicated characters.  I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it.

Kiki: Do you have a Favorite Book of All Time? Of course, please tell us what about that book makes it your favorite.
ANDY: My Favorite Book of All Time is Stephen King’s The StandI like the complexity and length of this post-apocalyptic tale and love the way King laid out a saga that pitted good against bad in a final showdown.

Kiki: What is the best book you read last month, and would you recommend it to a friend?
ANDY: Doug Dorow’s thriller – The Ninth District Would very highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a well plotted thriller.

Kiki: What are your reading habits like? For example, how many books do you read on average in a week, what format do you prefer to read in, what time of day do you read, and what setting is ideal for you to get lost in that book?
ANDY: My reading habits are sporadic.  I go through phases and currently I have been reading more than I have in the last three years.   I enjoy softcover books (although, I have been digging the kindle I just received for Christmas)  My favorite reading setting is the back deck of my home, in the Fall, with a light breeze and an Amstel Light.

Kiki: How do you become inspired to write?
ANDY: I became inspired to write my first novel due to events that unfolded in my life as an owner of a small business in the late 1990’s.  My staff suspected that one of our clients was a drug smuggler and this person’s murder some time later seemed to confirm this suspicion.  From this sequence of events, my overactive imagination develop the plot points that became SHADES OF GRAY.

Kiki: What part of the story do you think is your strength to write? 
ANDY: My strongest writing came out during the construction of the twisty ending that developed during the writing of the novel.  I surprised myself in the development of the events that transpired at the end and how well they circled back to the other elements of the story.

Guest Post By Author M. D. Cliatt



I've just finished writing my debut novel, The Public Pretender. Whew! What a long and winding journey, but I like getting lost on the highways in the world of my imagination. A few times, I got off on the wrong exits--or, should I say different exits because it’s my imagination and nothing in there is wrong per se, just weird. I started writing it four years ago, and I’m glad I made it to the end.

Because I was mad about things I noticed in the juvenile justice system, I began writing a guide to educate more families in my community.  As I wrote, a creative spring erupted in my mind, and I couldn’t force myself to stay within the rigid lines of legal exposition.  It seemed fitting because I always found myself using analogies, examples and stories to explain to kids ranging in age from ten to eighteen what was happening to them in court. 

The story is about a fiery criminal defense attorney, Maeven Dayne, who specializes in representing juvenile defendants.  When it comes to her job, she’s driven and passionate.  When it comes to her family, she’s devoted, but her job is demanding and distracting.  She pleases her husband when she decides to quit her job to spend more time with the family. But, on Maeven’s last day at work in the courtroom, a juvenile probation officer she despises drags a weeping young girl before an irritated judge for an unscheduled hearing while Maeven is packing up her things to leave. She is walking out of the courtroom, fighting her urge to turn around when she hears the probation officer had the girl incarcerated for weeks without notifying her parents or arranging for representation.  Maeven can’t resist the girl’s pitiful pleas for help and intervenes.

She discovers people are profiting from imprisoning innocent kids.  A whistleblower  ends up dead, but he’s left clues. When her oldest son is beaten, arrested and detained on false charges, her husband receives a message proposing an offer: Maeven must quit the girl’s case, or they lose their son.  The problem? Can she sacrifice one for the other? 
 
My book buddy and I had such different views about Maeven.  We debated her methods, her motivations and how she treated friends and family.  My friends had differing views too.  We agreed that we were fascinated by her former client’s shady character, found her youngest son’s snarky humor terribly funny, and we really loved the way her husband loves.  I cried over her oldest son’s scenes. Yes, I cry and laugh at passages in my own book; my husband thinks that’s weird. Because of the ongoing debate, I’m not done with Maeven.  She’ll live on for one more book.  She’ll have to wait until I’m finished writing a fantasy novel with my sons, but I’ve already have the plot for her worked out and can’t wait to get back to her. 

Feel free to drop me a line. http://mdcliattbooks.blogspot.com.


M. D. Cliatt Bio

I'm a wife and a mother who loves to tell stories. I was born and raised in Georgia, but now I live in Central Pennsylvania.  I'm a staff attorney in a law school clinical program, and I'm an adjunct law professor who teaches juvenile justice and legal writing. I used to be a public defender specializing in representing children, and for the most part, loved the work. I thrived on the heat of courtroom battle, but the highs are very high and the lows are very low and I burned out. Now, I spend time grading papers, supervising law students as they represent indigent clients in court and reading with my sister in our long distance book club.

Guest Post by David Knight Author of I Am I



THE JOY OF SILENCE

It is in silence you will find the real truth, for it is there that you become the spiritual ‘seeker’ …knowing that within your experience, comes the real expression of our love as ‘one’.


By feeling and knowing what this connection is, your faith can become stronger each day and this in turn will enable you to express yourself in your true light.


Understand that for too long now, human being’s ‘illumination’ lies dimmed by the obscurity of illusion that befalls the impermanent world.


Each and every one of you can take a step, (no matter how small) away from the darkness and emerge from the shadow of doubt....so as one moves forward, you will find that it will become easier to understand, grow and know more of what and why you are as you are.
Realise that only the individual can make their own commitment to embark upon the journey to eternal bliss and peace.


Think of it as a voyage, a continued quest and mission that you cannot leave in the hands of another ....for always it is your own burden and yet ... it is also your joy, your incomprehensible joy.

52 Inner Dictations

Author Bio:
DAVID KNIGHT was born into his current physical embodiment in 1964. He is married to Caroline and they live with their adopted cats Toby, Treacle, Spiky and Missy in the UK. In growing up he describes himself as a Mr. Average or like a 'Joe Bloggs'. Whilst earning a living in various types of work, (this ranged from HM Forces, Financial Services, a Care Assistant and also self-employment) his search for fulfilment changed from the exterior and without to the interior and within.

Spiritual education gained a greater momentum and at the age of
21 a more urgent sense of dedication as well as a new realization had set in. New evidence of and from God, were soon revealed through his life experiences. With the aid of Spirit guides and beings from the ethereal planes, the foundations were laid for all who wished to develop and experience their Hearts flame of love and light and to embark upon a unique opportunity for all soul's in this lifetime.

Description:
I am I: The In-Dweller of your Heart is a stepping stone for all who embark upon their own quest for 'Spiritual' education and guidance. So, even if you are comfortable with your own faith and religion, you may have decided to explore new interpretations and such issues on a personal or global scale.

The author David Knight has received and transcribed these passages of text in a process known as 'Inner Dictation'. He describes this as writing from within the connection of his heart where peace, bliss, love and light reign supreme. 

God's wisdom and teachings are laid out before you so you can simply choose and read whenever or whatever your heart needs or desires. They are guidelines, principles and simple directions for you to now dip your toes or dive headfirst into the waters of you're own Divine essence.

These books will form the very threads of life's new tapestry, each being spun into 52 lessons from, to and through our own hearts and soul's. They are like a father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, partner or personal friend who knows you better than you can ever know 'yourself'. 

Part 1 is a companion for life which does not judge, condemn or scold, but hopes to encourage, guide, console, teach and remind you of who and what you are, why you live and for what purpose too!

David's book is being launched on 2/2/12 on Amazon.  There is an exciting contest that is in effect from now until the Launch.

EXCEPRT:

FOREWORD 
Welcome my Son. Much time in your world has passed and yet in reality no time at all. Over the years since Book 2- Deliverance of Love, Light, and Truth was collated, we have watched and waited while your busy life has unfolded. Through many trials and tribulations both joy and happiness have prevailed. Love and Light will always shine strongly from within your heart and far beyond the four walls in which you reside.

Your understanding of whom, what, and why you exist has grown considerably over the first two books. Thoughts and feelings have emanated from your mind’s eye and heart on numerous occasions regarding the subject matter and content for this new ‘work’. Therefore, now is the right time David for you to collate and contribute to another book.

Since your spirituality has given you new insights, (growing brighter and lighter over time), you have realised beyond doubt that we are all ‘one’. As such, shape, form, and also levels of intellect of a being, bear no resemblance to the love that is carried within and which is given so freely. 

Beauty has been said to be in the ‘eye’ of the beholder and yet in truth, real beauty comes from the source of all things. This is God, the Creator, the Great White Spirit or whichever name or form an individual agrees within himself what pure love is.

Through the education of your Soul (in this lifetime) you have come such a long way my Son, and yet you have not been anywhere else in time or space other than the moment that exists within each second, minute, hour, day, week or year. 

There is no separation from truth and the light. There can be no doubt that for all your experiences, the happiest of all is within the ‘stillness’ and the bliss of love itself. So, we ask those who have picked up this new (and your third) book: where is this truth, peace and tranquility? It is in the greatest power, the brightest light, the most beautiful sight and sound and it is in you, your essence, and the very core of your existence!
Deep within your Soul and heart is the love you all seek and cherish so dearly. You do not need to travel over mountains or hide away in forests to find the answers to all things. God is everything and everything is God. As such, he dwells as the fountain of joy, cascading tears of love and peace to all who come to bathe in him.

I am I: The ‘In-Dweller’ of your Heart is to be the title of this latest work David. You will hear, speak, and confide in God so that many more may both comprehend and understand. Information and dictation of words will flow in a similar manner you have been accustomed to.

Others may consider that you (or we) are mad, whilst others might decree that you are indeed privileged. Your faith, hope and character have all helped in being where you are today. Listen to your heart in all that you do, for it is where you will always hear what the truth ‘is’.

God knows what is to be written and when, for the benefit of society and humanity. All words and truth are simple and will be simply put. Doctrines and beliefs of many religions can often be complex but ‘love and truth’ is not and Spiritual education isn’t either.

Sometimes you will be amazed at what is given for you to write. Some passages will make you cry with tears of peace and love. Others will make you feel that  deep inside your heart there is light, glowing so brightly that people cannot fail to see and feel what is also within ‘themselves’.

David, it is so good to reconnect your pen with our hearts. Know that your life is our life, and those thoughts, wishes and your dreams are felt by us too. Your earthbound time may seem to have passed by, but we have always been close, waiting patiently for you. We love you. We love you all.

Remember, the stars and planets above and beyond where we physically reside may seem an eternity away, but the mind’s perception only deceives and tries to suggest this. Space, the Universe and time itself are but a minute fragment, not even the size of an atom on the Lord’s foot. People say to others: ‘to think outside the box’, but we state that you must realize there is no ‘box’, so just feel and know the truth within.

May those who inquire (the aspirant or devotee) and the disciples of different races, religions and all ‘beings; know that we are but one family, one Light and of one love. Connected are we all by the true source of illumination and power, the one God and one truth, the ‘In-Dweller’ of all our hearts. 

So start to collate the written words for this new book. You will know when, for you will feel the tug of the heart. Just be still and be you. Live, breath, know and feel it. God’s love and words will flow, so all you need to do is to be ready.

For now be at peace. Know that many draw close to wave goodbye. They wait in the knowing of what you will sense and feel in your tasks ahead. When it is necessary and appropriate, we’ll reconnect our own ‘pen’ to you. From love and light within, across time, space and dimensions, good luck my son.

 LESSON 8

GRIEF, ‘HEART-ACHE’ AND THEN JOY


Welcome. As you write the title of this passage, you may immediately think that there is a particular sequence of events that occurs. Obviously, from past experiences, you know that this is not always the case but true joy is forever and it is forever within you too.
Nothing, no one, or any ‘being’ needs to feel pain and anguish before they know joy, however it is the very nature of your mind and way of living that trick you to believe that this is so.

I have watched and felt your emotional rollercoaster of recent days. Jasper, your beloved cat who had been suffering from old age and illness would never have lived, even to recent times, without Caroline’s (and your) love washing over him during years of togetherness.

As your tears flowed and your hearts ached in distress as he slipped away, Angels and guardians who watch over all animals and creatures escorted and carried him to peace and contentment within my light that radiates for all beings. Know that he is amongst his friends and with those on the ethereal planes of vibration who know you both. They are caring for him, so he is fine and free from pain and anguish. He will be waiting for you when you yourselves are ready to Ascend and cross into your permanent state. 

‘Pud’, as you often called him, lived on the earth plane until he was meant to leave. In the time when you’re grieving is most apparent, your mind tricks you. All people who feel that they lose their loved one - a relative, a friend, or pet - feel this trickery.

By now you have the experience to deal with such things as the knowledge has turned to wisdom. The love, light and acceptance of these events should now allow you to be unshaken by this or other difficult circumstances. Some may feel that it is harsh of me to suggest that you need to overcome burdens such as these more easily, but this is what I am now asking you to do.

I will never ever, ever ask you to abandon your feelings of oneness and love for another person, being, or a beloved pet. What you should continually strive to achieve is the release of your attachment. These are not the same thing. How can the devotee, aspirant, disciple, or the person looking for answers define it simply and clearly? The key is within yourselves and all it takes is recognition and remembering who and what you are, as we have described many times before.

It can be very easy to be deceived at times of stress and struggle, but these are precisely the events and occasions when your inner strength needs to prevail and let go of negativity. Accept that events are as they should be in terms of karma and right action. The struggle is to overcome feeling separate. One feels and thinks that they are divided. This is my husband, my wife, my child, or my pet. In truth they are not, for they are all you and me. All are ‘one’.

Some feel that their ‘God’ presides over them or lives in a particular place, or they may gaze upon a statue or alter which depicts in their eyes who or what I am. As stated, there is no separation so then I am all things and all things are me. I am the flower that is wilting and I am the next flower that blooms. I am the tree with no leaves and I am the tree whose blossom flies in the wind. I am the desert and the seas and I am the above and below.

As such, no one or ‘nothing’ can be alone, even in your darkest hour or the happiest moment of your life. So, if you now understand this and an event that you call ‘death’ occurs close to you, by concluding that the attachment is false, then there is no loss. If there is no loss then there is no fear. No fear means that there is no anguish or grief. Without grief you will not shed tears of pain, but rather tears of joy and celebration of a life that has enriched you and all those who come to know them.

This connection cannot be erased. Memory or even time can fade what was once so strong, but the love that is contained within two hearts cannot be destroyed by anyone or anything. Fire, water, earth or sky cannot burn, erode, bury, or elevate away. As the love was held by both hearts it cannot be extinguished, then there is no need to cry, no matter what the circumstances and events have conspired and bought to bear.

All egos must be diluted, so false thoughts cannot interfere with the process of truth. Yes, the truth is that the heart and Soul cannot ‘perish’ by any man-made event. People sometimes conclude that acts of violence by so called madmen mean that they have no heart and Soul. Know that even a ‘madman’ (a perception made on earth) loves something or someone. I explain this because it is often so difficult for you to comprehend or explain why and how a human being could inflict pain or harm upon another.

Causes and triggers, such as pride, hate, anger, and jealousy burn deep within the psyche. They lurk and hide within the shadows and recesses of the mind and body, looking for ways to express themselves. Instead, love and compassion, kindness and forgiveness need to grow within the heart. These seeds of truth can multiply and expand, touching and reaching far beyond boundaries of imagined walls; physically, mentally and emotionally. So, live with dignity and with values that have enabled you to be called a human being.

You are all so special, so strive to do and be the best person that you can be. Any job or activities that you engage in are all by-products and these, if undertaken in truth and love, are for the well-being of your fellow-man and for society.

All acts of kindness reverberate like the chimes of a bell for they echo and expand upon waves of love and light. Your hearts do not need to bear hurt and fear and they do not need to cry out for tears to fall in pain. Do not miss or despair when ‘ letting go’ of someone (or a pet), but continue to rejoice and sing their name in praise, for having the wonderful opportunity and time you had together on the plane of existence you currently reside upon. Please know that as ‘one’ I shall be:
-The boat that carries you across the ocean(s) of your emotions.
-The land you walk upon holding you upright and true.
-The wind that blows away dark clouds from your body, mind and Soul.
-The spiritual ‘vision’ to reveal the light and the Sun to radiate warmth and love in your heart.
-The hand that lifts you up from the ground when you feel you can’t go on.
-The life giving ‘water’ that will quench your thirst for truth, knowledge and for wisdom.
-The spark deep within that gives you everlasting life.
-The colours of the rainbow shining down upon your darkened days of false fear and tears.

We are one forever. Please do not grieve. Erase the heartache and pain. You are joy itself. Live it, breath it, know it and understand it. Love conquers all things that you can ever possibly imagine to fear. So do not, (for you need not), as you are nearer than near to me. I love you all. Amen
