Project “Follow Me”

A very inspiring and creative theme presented in the most magnificent manner. Capturing the moment, a picture worth ten thousand words.. all that is used to describe the art that is photography is being well orchestrated through this idea and it is still in play, continuing to bring us joy and longing to travel.
Holding the hand of his muse, the Russian photographer Murad Osmann continues to be led by his inspiration, and his girlfriend, Nataly Zakharova in his ongoing journey. With her back facing the camera, she eagerly guides him through various locations across our globe. The exotic duo have managed to tastefully create and display a variety of exciting and culturally rich landscapes and architects through their clever set of images.
I have placed some of many of his brilliant works, you can view more through his facebook page or instagram.
BTW…
Can you guess the locations where these were shot?

10 interesting confusions

It’s cold today, and I’m out of hot chocolate… So how about a brain tease to warm you up?

4- If a poison’s date expires, is it more poisonous or less poisonous?
5- Why don’t birds fall off the trees when they sleep?

End of an era…

My favorite idol had passed away, a man with great intelligence, with an abundant amount of grey cells who never misses a thing, no whisper can run away from his ears, no shadow is big enough to obscure what he notices… His own mother, Agatha, thought him to be tiresome, egotistical and creep… I can’t believe it’s finally over.

To me, Hercule Poirot was born on January 8th, 1989. I got to meet him on 1993, I was really into detective shows, so much that I would look for evidences and imagine myself brawling with criminals… But Poirot had opened my eyes to a whole new level of detecting, the kind where you only need to watch and read the signs; realize the unexpected… So much that he had helped me by inspiring me to write Psychs’ 1st… Which is a detective short story spanned off my series.
Poirot is the fictional character created by one of humanities most celebrated authors, Agatha Christie. Unsuccessful at her initial writing career, in 1920 she was first acknowledge for her first work of Poirot, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.
I had the pleasure of reading some of Poirot’s most brain twisting and jaw dropping cases, my favorite being Murder on the Orient Express. The last episode of the very long running Crime Drama that is Poirot was an emotional roller coaster. The precision in portraying Poirot’s character was delivered in a wonderful manner that is not less than perfect.
Here is how David Suchet brought Hercule Poirot to life.

Very Annoyed…

Let me start  by asking this question… have you ever had so many things piling, that without a doubt, at some point, the straw that broke the camel’s back will eventually finds its way to you? You know it’s going to land there at some point but you don’t know when? Well… I’ll keep tapping on those letters on my laptop and see if you will realize what brought me to this desert that lacks the oasis.

At the moment I am having a short vacation. Here I find myself having none of the time I need to do the things I like the most; writing, reading, jogging and many other activities that one should be doing on his/her vacation. First thing on my list is my publishing experience for my second book(or technically third since I’ve released a spinoff from my series for free on Smashwords and Scribd, too). My novel, Iblis, or also known as Devilish, is at halt at the moment, and here’s why… I discovered that I only get almost 13% from my sales for my novel online… now I know  I am not in it for the money… I am in it to make people’s jaws drop… but honestly… 13% out of the whole is something I would feel offended by, because taking four years of my life to create book 1 & 2 is something I should take more credit for… when I agreed to the 50% for my e-book I also thought it was unfair… 50% is like saying you did half of my job… still, if it helps to get my words out and on people’s hands to enjoy I won’t mind it… but 13%… well… sorry but that’s too much for me to handle.

So this time I decided to do it with the help of an agent. I got a respond and sent with my fingers crossed a three sample chapters from my novel Iblis.

The other thing I am being annoyed by is the fact that I have no time to write and read because I am helping someone, who I can’t say no to, to write his novel… It is taking so much time from me and I can’t do it with all the kids running around me… yes, kids are staying at our home because, apparently, both my brother and sister decided to take a time away from them and leave for their own vacations.

So yes… I feel very annoyed… and at some point, I’m going to explode… I know it’s coming, but I don’t know when… all I need to do is find something to aim at… my punching bag was sold because… well no one uses it… my young brother (yes… he’s an object to lash at to me) did surgery so that’s a no too, but he must get a note from his doctor first, so there’s some hope. There’s always sports………………. sorry for stopping briefly… I needed to catch my breath, I really need to stretch before I blog.

Well… I don’t know… maybe I should walk it out? In the mean time, I’ll wait to see how it will go with the agent hunt… and as for my reading… I can always get that going before I sleep.

Here is my reading agenda for the coming months so far:

Not in that order in particular… I’ll start with what my mood decides to strike first… as you can see… I’m kind of moody today.

Cheers everyone.
