Historical fiction mostly, but also some multi-genre stories & anecdotes

Thank you Mira – the more the merrier 🙂
You conveyed the message very clearly. This is good poetry right here.
Hello there – thank you for the visit and compliment. All good wishes, Eric
P/s Puns…will check them out
Another of your deep thinking contributions. That’s the way life should be handled.
I knew it would resonate with you Ian. We both share pretty much similar thoughts about life and values, I reckon.
My wife and youngest girl are back from holidays in China and I plan to have a great weekend.
Hope you have a great weekend too.
Nice walk. You take the good and toss out the bad. Works for life in general, too!
Ain’t that the truth. But not many can do it though – we pass them as they bend under load, looking down instead of ahead.
Once the thorns are pulled from our clothes and skin…..life can be wonderful.
Very true – this is what we usually do with ‘real’ thorns – but not everyone does the same with their ‘metaphorical’ thorns. They insist on carrying the pain.
Life’s lessons learned in just a few lines. Wonderful use of metaphor — clothes, flowers, thorns, walking, discarding thorns.
Thank you Dee – lessons abound everywhere I reckon.
Delightful attitude expressed.
Thank you Charles. Helps to see the possibilities in our lives.
Let’s get rid of those thorns, even the ones that dig deep!
Yes to that Christy B – if we can start with the shallow ones, we’ll gain the experience and confidence to rid ourselves of the deeper ones.
I once met an acquaintance who complained loudly that she’ll never speak to ‘that man’.
“Why,” I asked her.
“He saw me and did not wish me!”
Did she really need to lug that around? Sad…so sad.
You are so right Eric that I feel sorry for those people. The negativity hurts that woman more than the man…
The verses are spreading its sweet hues far and wide… Simply lovely!! 🙂
That’s great – the wind can be so helpful 🙂

Beautiful meditation to live life By 🙂
You’re so full of positivity, I knew you’ll love these lines, Cat. Luv and peace, Eric 🙂
As long as it is only the clothes that pick the thorns 🙂
🙂 That’s what this metaphor refers to, Madhu. No man-made thorn can prick deeper, I reckon. Peace, Eric 🙂
Thank you Aparna – what treasures the depths of meditation hold 🙂
There are too many good things to comment about here – the lines of 5-5-3-3-5-3 read beautifully off the tongue and add a quiet structure to extensional imagery. My favorite two lines are, ‘Clothes pick thorns / Soak flower scent”
Wow! That is lovely.
Medicine cures – even better when it tastes good 🙂
Very optimistic. I like it.
People bend under unnecessary burdens – many forget they’re in control.
Bis dann, Eric
No one will leave this page without a smile today…beautiful mantra 🙂
Thank you Soma dear – a mantra – that’s nice. You’re always generous with your compliments.
Yes, prayer helps, constant prayer helps constantly, I reckon.
Luv and peace, Eric 🙂
Thorns dropped of with a sweet smell left behind? I could live with that!
And what a lovely journey that would be. Thank you for your visit and comment Val. All good wishes, Eric
what a fine way to journey through life.
Sometimes I wonder, whether there is any other way…

“The last bullet can’t be for his horse – for him, perhaps. He doesn’t want to give his pursuers the pleasure of seeing him shit while swinging at the end of a rope.”
I thought that, then he said, what if I take one with me, and get his gun? Funny how a 100 word person can have his own mind!
Did you locate my comment.
If not – go to your Comments page, you’ll probably find it sitting in the “Spam” on the topline.
Once ‘approved’ – subsequent comments should get through.
thanks — ( by the way, I put in a request for our library to carry your novel, that way I can read it and get it in front of others )
Female trafficking has always interested me ( in the how can a man assist to stop it ), and this should be a good story and insight.
That’s super – really appreciate it, Eric 🙂
my way of walking.
Wait for me, Sharmishtha dear – I’m right behind you 🙂
