    #30 Stay tuned Deb. Although I wouldn't call it a happy ending, life is set right, as best it can in the circumstances under which my characters have been placed. Life is full of lessons, we are all tested and we all fail, but sometimes we don't, sometimes we find the path we can take and find peace, with ourselves, with others. "Give me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference". My brother kept this posted on his refrigerator for decades, it was given to him at an AA meeting. The Serenity Prayer. When he passed it was the one thing I insisted be on his marker: Granted Serenity, along with a picture of his cat of course..

    Dear @Pamela L. Williams this was very emotional and a nail-biter to read. I started reading with a smile and all the characters fell into place and I was still wondering why Running deer hated Nicanol after reading the birth part of the episode. Towards the end I was thinking OMG what is this stubborn child going to do and as I wanted my guesses to be wrong . They were not only right but also claimed two lives instead of what I thought as one.
    The loss of a loved one can create such negative feelings and behavior especially when the death is not natural and man-made. I now see why she is treated this way and wonder if Running deer will ever understand that Nicanol has realized the consequences of her action.
    Brilliant fantabulous story writing. This one will definitely never cease from my memory.

    #25 That's what we get in real life. The current imperfect amalgamation of many, many past actions and thoughts. Almost all of which will stay hidden...

    But, of course, the question is - even when meanness is justified in some sense by a prior interaction - is it acceptable?

    I have held grudges for things unable to be uttered in the same sentence as losing a child. And it is inevitable that there will be individuals who we struggle to get along with - but the poisoning of the clan/community that is an entirely different level of grudge and perhaps one to really be alert for. One person rarely has much of a chance against systemic injustice.

    #18 Ah, so you kept them in reverse timeline! Do you see now why that makes sense? To me it had to be written that way, you had to think about the characters and their actions until this episode and everything fell into place. To me it imbued the story with raw emotion.

    #5 I actually tire myself out once I start writing, I can't stop. I sat in a coffee shop Saturday, working on the story and before I knew it four hours had passed. They kicked me out because they wanted to close so I went to one of my favorite diners, had a Western Omelet and worked for another hour. I think I got a bit obsessed. You think?

    #8 thank you my friend! It was really hard to write. I got attached to my characters. I want to eventually do a Prequel and tell the full story of Friend of the Wolf and Morning Dove. Something is telling me that needs to come first. When I finish the final chapter you'll see that. Yes, it's already in my head. Wish I could write it as fast as the story comes to me. I could write a novel in a weekend. :-)

    #28 That's my favorite kind of problem, @Kevin Pashuk! I am more of a library kind of person because writers are putting out more books than I can keep up with.

    #30 The Atheist who didn't exist. Was my first choice. I am an extreme I that has adapted to public settings. So i enjoy deep thoughts about how folks can declare anything. One of my favorite questions of those who declare something, "Five years ago you were making declarations, Based on these have you arrived at your destination, are you on the same path? Follow up questions would include: What happened to those declarations? How do you think current declarations will impact the next five years?

    The conversation usually doesn't end well because the declarations get exposed as a way to manage current events as opposed to a life long commitment to something. I will let you know about this book, so far, i am enjoying the writer. Whether true or not i am declaring Andy Bannister an I, @Kevin Pashuk.

    14/10/2016 #32 Jared Wiese
    #25 #30 I agree with Kevin on the sentiments, @Harvey Lloyd. Another approach I've been trying is looking up a summary and seeing if a book resonates. Probably works better with non-fiction and could be seen as a spoiler, but I also see it as a way to skim and prepare to absorb as much as I can from the book.

    I went through three of the books and read the Amazon "look inside" feature. It was a little of an experiment. Do Big "I"'s enjoy the same reading materials. This experiment was totally scientific and has an error bias of 2.93855%:) The three sampled books resonated with my big I and i have downloaded two of them. My conclusions of this study is that I's do share some features across the type, as it applies to reading. We enjoy folks who are realists, opinions that can be supported by more than just emotion, humor that is totally detached from any realism, and finally writers who challenge our way of thinking.

    This study along with the rather exhaustive study that Boeing determined a 737 costs eleven cents per passenger mile will still leave you needing five bucks in the latte line.

    Thanks for the reading list @Kevin Pashuk. I am deep into the first downloaded book and appreciate your list greatly.

    #21 @Lisa Gallagher, I remember the book although I'm not sure I ever read it. And I am so far from being a true intellectual, it's as though I'm on a different planet. My reading these days is for pleasure, for relaxation. I did my time reading the current books of the day like . . . yes. 7 Habits and all those.

    And @Kevin Pashuk, I understand the allure of a Kindle or other electronic reading device! If I traveled as much as I did 10-15 years ago, I would definitely have one because it would make sense. Since a lot of my work is home-based now, I can enjoy magazines, newspapers, and books the old-fashioned way. But your list is still amazing.

    #20 @Susan Rooks, do you remember the detective and true crime magazines they used to sell in stores during the 70's? When I was a teen I used to buy those and read them. I remember the first book I bought and read because I wanted to, "Go ask Alice." A book about a girl who did psychotropic drugs and had horrible trips from LSD in particular. I can say this much, I never wanted to touch drugs after reading that. I think I was in 7th grade when I read that book. Yes, I'm a true intellect haha

    OK, so you are officially -- in my "book" anyway -- one scary dude, @Kevin Pashuk! That is a hell of a list!

    On the other hand, I'm probably 30 years older than you are, and I reserve the right to read mostly fiction -- detective and/or other mystery genres -- for relaxation.

    But I did spot two books I might want to look at, and if you hadn't put them on your list, I doubt I would have. So thanks! And you're right -- interesting people tend to be readers.

    PS: I much prefer paper books. Just sayin' . . . :-)

    Quite the list @Kevin Pashuk. My kindle is full of fiction books. I also like reading books that are 'stories' of people who've experienced an out of body experience. I have books by researchers on OBE's and consciousness. No one has an answer but my mind has always had this investigative side, maybe that's why I enjoy reading material that has no concrete proof *yet*. There probably won't be any proof in my lifetime. Great topic! Oh and I still read paper back and hard cover books. My favorite paperbacks are inspirational books and yes, some of my fiction books too.

    #22 @Charles David Upchurch Way to go . I have a publisher because I basically am lazy and procrastinate too much and thus the books would never have come out. Thanks for stopping by.

    It sounds like there's a huge difference between writing a book to earn a living from it and writing a book to share your message with others. Since the latter is my goal, I plan to self-publish at Lulu.com.

    Congratulations, Paul. Perhaps a difficult journey but hopefully well worth it.

    How 'bout a little shameless promotion? @Paul Walters. Publish an excerpt on beBee. I promise not to poke fun at fiction. If some people can accept golf and auto racing as sports, I guess I can accept fiction as writing. Well, just this once.

    @Paul Walters Well done Paul for having your book(s) written and published. On reading your post it appears that the writing, editing, and promotion all take up around a third of the total effort to putting a book out on the market. Related to this - more than two million blog posts appear on the internet every day. To reading yours I can say every time: "Yeah, it was worth it". Thank you Paul.

    Paul @Paul Walters Congratulations. That's quite an accomplishment. Take heart that your book might still end up on a bookstore's shelves. That's a cool adrenaline rush to see that. BTW, have you considered doing book signings at local bookstores, or doing some readings at same? Even if book chains won't stock your book in numbers, you may still be able to convince a bookstore manager/buyer to "try you out". Local bookstores are more inclined to support local authors.

    Quite a journey. I wonder if there is any room for niche marketing. Are all the niches taken? There has to be plenty of room for edgy romance (Fifty Shades)...Hmmm, got me thinking.... I think you are right though. They say you can't be a petrol head unless you've owned an Alfa. You can't be a writer unless you've had a book published?

    Thanks for this @Paul Walters. It's inspirational for those of us who aspire to one day publish our own work. And "I wrote book" made me chuckle!

    #14 @Vincent Andrew I live within an academic family and I can only watch with awe as they turn out these papers that rock! So methinks I will stick to the simply book writing and leave the hard academic writing to people like you, my wife and her siblings !!!

    I don't write books but academic papers Paul. Both equally hard maybe?

    Actually, I like the sound of "I write book." I have a friend who is a travel agent and she uses "I book right." It works for her. As far as Rushdie goes. I believe that is what some extremists were hoping for after the Satanic Versus.

    Congratulations, Paul, on getting past 'book'. If anyone ever asks me what else I write I will have no hesitation, thanks to your tale of tortuous tolerance, in saying that I don't write book(s). I am not a patient man but envy yours. I'll be looking out for "Scimitar" at one of my few remaining bookshops.

    #4 What great insight, Melissa. Indeed, our American culture - and perhaps many others - does not reward or even encourage the Now. It doesn't take much, but we have to focus on it. Even if it is as simple as our breath, a tree, the sunrise/sunset.

    I've never actually read this book or anything by Tolle, but Life face planted me in the Now once and it is most certainly a fantastically spectacular place to Live. Society doesn't seem to encourage living that way though so you need a good strong bubble and frequent solitude excursions and a light vest to keep at it. Happily ever after Now to you!
