Recently this writer was asked from a reader who had just read my new endeavor, “In the Light of Day”. Who is Bubba?
An Interestingly question. Just who is my lead character Bubba? So, after some serious thought, here it is.
Bubba represents the Common Man, the the mail delivery person, the retail clerk, the factory worker, the law enforcement officers, first responders, nurses, teachers, all who are living from pay check to pay check. We see and deal with them daily and for the most part they are recognized as an important segment of our Society. Bubba strives to see the good that is inherent in all well-meaning peoples. He is very much on his own and how he succeeds depends a lot on who represents us. He is ever hopeful and tries his best to make the best possible choices during his life’s journey. There are however some destructive forces at work that need tending to and Bubba sees this and wants to do something about it. Too many are in harm’s way. We need to change some miss conceptions and better protect the public at large. His message is loud and clear that wants to sound the alarm for a safer place for our children to grow up in.
Having hope for a better future is so important and most not be put asunder. So, help us God.
News Flash” My new endeavor is now on the table ready for serving. Just go to Lulu.com and enter the title , “In the Light of Day” by Paulie The Ballie Hioping for some kind souls to give it a glance.
The Mission for In The Light of Day.
Keeping the Darkness away is the theme of my new endeavor. Hoping for a new crusade for dealing with the constant diet of Destructiveness that engulfs our Social Media and entertainment fields. The focus must be the sanity of life. Showing the constant efforts to save lives and treat the innocent victims of gun violence that are so prevalent today. A massive turnaround from this malaise of violence should be our Societies primary goal. We need to stress and show the countless humanitarian deeds done each day on this swirling planet. One thing is for sure we are basically a caring and loving Nation that seems to have temporally lost its way. Maybe just maybe if all well meaning people’s look at our problems in the light of day we will take the necessary steps to lessen these wanton acts of gun violence. We need to elect Pol’s who understand the need to take Weapons of War off our streets forthwith and properly check out those who purchase guns. So I guess these solutions are up to you , American Voter this coming 2018 election. Vote, Vote ,Vote to show that HOPE FOR THE SANITY OF LIFE is here to stay. Amen to that Bubba.
What I want to share here is a true occurrence that happen to this writer just yesterday 2/23/18. The need to share this event will be quite evident. Also, in sharing what happen should be of in recognizing that there are forces that defy explanation. I hope my account brings some light to understanding of what maybe going on when this occurs.
First a little background on sleep. There are five stages to the sleep cycle which each round last for primarily 90 minutes I. Usually the rem stage (rapid eye-movement) is in play when one is awakening.
After attending to the first Spring Training Game with the Yankees and Detroit, I rushed home to walk my faithful Beagle, Hoppy and then hit sofa and turned on the T.V.
The following happen after watching T. V. during that late afternoon I fell asleep for about 20 minutes. Upon waking I saw two young ladies standing directly in front of me One was dressed in a bright red dress and one had a yellow dress. I was startled, and the images quickly faded away lasting for maybe 3 seconds.
So, I went to my trusted I phone and googled Upon waking seeing a presence.
Wow this phenomenon is not uncommon and one explanation is that the brain is projecting these images as response to a sort of sleep paralysis.
Researchers say that sleep paralysis happens when a person awakens during a stage of sleep known as rapid eye movement, People in this stage of sleep are usually dreaming but their muscles are nearly paralyzed which might be an evolutionary adaptation he keeps people from acting out their dreams.
Well in my case I was not dreaming during this nap. I was mystified by the appearance of these two young ladies. Could there have been another force at work here? Maybe just maybe there was a connection with someone else’s brain activity that is not of this world. Could this be a communication with the after world? No message was given but a very strong sense that someone was looking directly at me with interest, wanting to say something but unable to speak any words;
Thinking that this phenomenon could be an interesting to be explored in a short story or novel of sorts. Taking one on a journey that would facilitate some interesting communication and search of finding answers.
Howdy Folks, As we deal with the terrible events of late in Florida . I would like to share the final excerpt from soon to be published new endeavor, In The Light of Day”
In Closing, I like to give Dr. Fromm final thoughts once again on his important work just in case one may have missed it. I quote, “The position taken in this book is one of rational faith in man’s capacity to extricate himself from what seems the fatal web of circumstances that he has created. It is the position of those who are neither, “optimists” nor “pessimists,” but radicals who have rational faith in man’s capacity to avoid the ultimate catastrophe. The humanist radicalism goes to the roots, and thus to the causes; it seeks to liberate man from the chains of illusions; it postulates that fundamental changes are necessary, not only in our economic and political structure but also in our values, in our concepts of man’s aims, and in our personal conduct. The situation of mankind today is too serious to permit us to listen to the demagogues-least of all demagogues who are attracted to destruction -or even to the radical thought will bear fruit when it is blended with the precious quality man is endowed with-THE LOVE OF LIFE.”
As more shooting of innocents comes our way
Will something finally be done this day?
As this Congress refuses to have a say.
What to do with this dismay?
All need to vote this coming election day
And remove these Lackey’s of the N.R.A.
Take them to task for failure to act
Send them packing in disgrace that hardened pack
For dereliction of duty of the oath they were sworn to say
So, lets get to the polls this election day
And cast that vote to let the word go forth
We want a change to take these weapons of war off our streets
At last saving lives and setting a better example for the World
That we are at last a Nation of preserving Life
And that all have a right
To pursue their lives without fear
Of a random act of violence and hate
For thee I pray we all look at this In The Light of Day
A Reflection and call for Action
Time after time we weep again and again for so many innocents shot in anger and hate. As we weep these loses a sense that we cannot go on this way. There is hope as A recent statement from a young lad speaking for his peer’s said, “This generation will not stand for this.” Let these words resonate through out this land and serves as a mobilizing force to take these weapons of war off our streets forthwith. A call for action: It Is Okay To Cry Bubba
There comes a time when grief
Is too heavy to hold and bear
When Society is attacked so regularly of late
With a deluge of venom and hate
An accumulated volume so great
Time after time without sign of break
A Merchant of Death shows his face
He walks freely about without restraints
Chooses mighty weapons of war
So easy to obtain to our dismay
Targets are everyone on any given day
So it is time to cry, stop, stop,stop
This madness without delay
And take weapons of war away
Melt them down and build Highways
Tunnels, Bridges, Habitats ,I say
Keeping life sacred for thee I pray
In The Light Of Day!
