As a child, I spent my summer evenings walking the North Downs. The sun, dust and open fields. There was an over whelming feeling of a disconnect. I never felt in the world, a feeling that has permeated my life since.
The world exists in spite of me, in-spite of us. The world without me was present before I was born, and will be after I'm gone. My after life will be the same as my life is now. It isn't contradictory, its a continuation. As I face my passing, I don't fear death, I… Continue

“Simply put, if you like your kicks on the surreal side, look no further. This title would sit comfortably with many in the Pratchett collection, and at times (usually after spilling my coffee over the sofa, sides split) was left wondering if It wasn't a hidden Adams'.” – Amazon 5 Star Review …

OK, I finally read 50shades and felt inspired to have a go myself.
No, not that! At writing erotica. Anyway, I had an idea of writing an ebook of erotic shorts, each one in a different genre. I wrote my first short story, full of sexual tension and naughtiness.
But, then I felt really embarrassed and slightly dirty for having put that kind of stuff down on paper, so I abandoned it without its climax (in both senses!).
So, now my dilemma is; I feel bad that I have left… Continue

I recently received an annual New Year's letter from a good friend, and it got me thinking about what people would write if they didn't have such a good year, especially since our friends seem so positive about everything. Perhaps it would go something like this:
Dear Family & Friends:
Well, we can hardly believe 2014 is behind us - what a fabulous, busy year. First, you should know that Cindy got out of the hospital much earlier than anticipated. The doctor said he'd never… Continue

Muhammad and Jesus, who’s the “liar” then?
“What a fool Musaylimah, the liar!” my cousin said laughing mockingly.
“What?” I asked knowing the whole story.
“He invented a silly quran and wanted to divert the Muslims from Islam.”
“And do you think that a man, an army commander that could lead over 40,000 fighters, and who could convince some of Muhammad’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم PBUH) friends to follow him,…

I murdered my kindle about 15 months ago. There were tears or at least as many as could be shed given the circumstances.
It was brutal.
We were on a trip to Hungary, so of course I found myself with nothing to read - well in English…

One day I was standing by the window gazing vacantly and smoking at the lunch break at work, when a colleague came and stood by me without me noticing her. I was looking out blankly and she was, probably, looking at my look, or the way I looked. Then out of sudden she asked me in a decisive and assuring tone: “Are you existentialist Sami?” I was shocked and startled for that direct unexpected question and remembered the “parties” of interrogation they held on me in the zionist… Continue

For those with a parent or significant other with Alzheimer's, the holiday season can be an especially difficult time. With family traditions come all the reminders of loss, and as much as one wants to include the person afflicted it can't be done once they reach a certain stage in the disease's progression. If you're in the midst of coping with this, either as a caregiver, spouse, son, daughter, or other relation, I'd like to offer my deepest thanks for the help you give and my sympathies… Continue

I tear towards Earth on an endless chute, terrified and bawling. Hope has launched me on my way but at some point on the frantic journey I slow to a snail’s pace, deaf to my own screams, and sluggish, black evil burns through my soul. I am all hatred. I shoot off again and moments later slide to a halt in bright, cold light. Loud voices proclaim,
“It’s a boy! A perfect baby boy!” Hands grab me, scrub my tender skin, wrap me in something scratchy and shove me into the arms of my… Continue
