Closing on Day 40 of The Third Awakening campaign. I hope everybody had a great Turkey Day, got plenty to eat and drink, and caught a good nap during that Detroit-Houston game. lol Time to renew and re-double efforts. My goal starting out was to be a creative writer rather than a teacher of creative writing or English literature. Oddly enough, undiagnosed A.D.D. and the onset of blindness at 50 actually spurred me to publish after writing for 25 years. That was twelve years ago. A $35 pledge for 11 premium gifts, ebooks, mp3 readings and print books, U.S. and Worldwhide!

Check this out...then sign the pledge! Peter Neill has the right idea about the Ocean as "an integrated, global, social system," that directly impinges upon, and is directly affected by, all aspects of our life on earth from agriculture and economics to politics and transportation, from culture to healthcare and fresh water. Watch and listen as Neill talks about how the ocean connects everybody.

To widen my readership to the world audience my writing merits. Of course, I write to entertain my readers, but I also have larger goals. With The Third Awakening, specifically: To reveal in parable form the delusion of global corporate governance led by the U.S. that is raping the planet’s mineral resources, slaughtering the poor through forced migration and starvation, devastating the natural environment, poisoning our oceans, air, rivers and soil, spreading cancer, wars, addiction, slavery, tyranny and death; then marketing it all to the brainwashed, displaced, disenfranchised masses in the name of “prosperity and progress.”

Competing national self-interest drives war and national destruction. In a truly global community, we need to define and shape our policies in terms of our shared interests, like safe food, water, human rights and transitioning to wind, wave and solar energy.
