Learning to Fly-Part 2
Learning to fly...it's just not that easy.
As I embarked on the first flight, the release of ONE LOVE ONE HEART: A Big Fish Story, I was soaring for two days. Then a downdraft came from out of nowhere, leaving me dusting off my coat tails once again after I came crashing down.
You see, I received some inaccurate information with regards to copyright law. I also felt the pull of the spiritual world. For instance, it felt like Satan was doing everything in his power to keep the words of ONE LOVE ONE HEART from hitting the streets.
Within 48 hours of releasing, the dream of publishing went from euphoric to committing writers suicide. I mean, the tremendous outreaching of friends from all walks of life congratulating the efforts, to "please pull it down." To say I was beside myself would be an understatement.
Considering our creator summoned me to accomplish this task, he does not take no for an answer. This said, ONE LOVE ONE HEART would come down off its release thrown, finding itself back at the drawing table with a list of fix-its that could have potentially derailed the project from ever reaching its potential, or getting re-released.
There have been a few times during the past in which I would walk away from the project, determining it was just not meant to be. Sometimes these were business ideas; "got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em." However, as I said earlier, when our creator commissions the project, there would be no 'fold em' thoughts.
In light of the fact that I needed to do a remodel, if you will, I am of the belief now that this finished project is more authentic, less abrasive in one aspect of the story-line, and will now remain in history as the final version.
ONE LOVE ONE HEART: A Big Fish Story is soaring again on Amazon.com. You can enjoy it in black and white print, color print, or color electronic version. An audio version will be up shortly.
Note: Although Satan has had some great wins in his history, what he does not know about is the fact that when he wants to mess with me he is going to find that I will scrap, claw, fight, and work. There will be no quit, no taking my ball and going home, no letdown. I'll play until the game is officially over. I hope he is willing to go to eternity in this game. Like Rambo; "It ain't ova until I say it's ova." In this context, until the Good Lord says its ova ;).
With a little Lenard Skynard playing in the back of my mind on this re release; "I'm going to fly high, oh free bird, yeah..........................."

This site accommodated a dream, a writers dream that is. One to share thoughts, ideas, awareness, and solutions through creative, entertaining, and perhaps enlightening ways. I blog, you reply. Pretty simple and pretty cool. I'm not sure who will enjoy this more, you the reader or me the entertainer? In any regard, I look forward to sharing some of the journey...
