Hey Everyone!! Rest assured I have not forgotten about my blogging friends; you are all in my thoughts and always on my mind. Unfortunately, my health has still not improved. I've really been struggling these past few months. Don't want to whine about it- it is what it is. But I'm definitely praying for a happy, healthy New Year over here at the Bird's Nest, that's for sure! Wishing you and yours a wonderful, blessed, joyous and HEALTHY holiday season. Hope to get back to my regular posting schedule soon. Love and Best Wishes to You All~ Jaybird
OOPS: I almost forgot!! My brother Chris just released his book, Convergence, Sola Hominidae, over on LuLu. Check it out if you are into Sci-fi/Fantasy. Personally, I think he's brilliant and his book is pretty stinking awesome. (I'm not biased or anything) I am certainly thrilled at least one of us Birds got it together and launched a book this year!! LOL. Below is the cover and a little bit about it. You can give it a preview or purchase it over on LuLu.
Seeing himself through the recorded memories of his adversaries gives Daniel a unique, nearly omniscient perspective. No tragedy, comedy, or embarrassment is lost to his memory or hidden from sight.... More > Despite being culturally distinct from his neighbors, Daniel does everything in his power to be near them. His self-hating behavior and the inevitable rejection he suffers at the hands of those from whom he seeks approval ends in violence. The events of his life mirror those of a flawed biblical character. However, technology creates the cultural rift in Daniel's world. The tension of his world can be seen even now in the stares of smartphone users as they gaze upon those with inferior devices. When the line between human and device is blurred through electronic and genetic engineering, a mindless, homogenized, socially awkward future is assured; and, nature dictates, the survival of only the fittest.
