This Halloween Is Going To Be Great

Good morning, everyone! Happy Thursday!

So, yesterday I was lucky enough to book my tickets back to Georgia and when I say Georgia, I mean the country Georgia overseas. That’s where my family is and that’s where I belong. I will be living there, until I can afford to go to Spain. I’ll still be online and my blog posts will come out every day, hopefully at the same time, if not they’ll still come out. I promise.

It’s a bit of a different life over there. For everyone who knows me I’m Canadian. Life in Georgia is a little different. Apartments are older, which I don’t mind. People hang their laundry from their balconies, you’ll see random clotheslines crossing main streets.

They have open air markets, and the food is usually cheaper at these markets, though they have grocery stores where you can find everything else you need. They have good food there. The vegetables and fruit are fresh.

Georgia’s currency is Gel or LAR. Canadian money is worth double and American money is worth triple.

Georgia is a poor country. The people are kind and family oriented. They are still at a point where they don’t know what to do with animals. There’s a lot of strays, thankfully the local vet helps keep them healthy and is trying to fix them all. We try to feed as many as possible. If my books ever skyrocket, I’m going to open an animal sanctuary and take them in and give them a forever home.

The kids in Georgia aren’t walking around with cell phones in their hands or sitting behind a video game, they’re outside playing soccer, or they sit at a table playing cards. At age 16 they are considered an adult.

I call Georgia the mini-America. It’s slowly growing. You can get the internet, cable, gas and their way of dressing is beginning to look more like America. They can get all the updated electronics but it’s nowhere near being what America is.

Georgia is a non-violent place. They used to be part of Russia, but have been on their own for over a decade. Most of the year the weather is in the 30s, you get a couple of months where it’s cooler and rainy. There is month of snow and ice in the winter.

I booked my ticket for the 29th of October it’ll take Me 2 days to get there.

#Intertwinedhearts

The world is one huge playground
Where some play nice
And others don’t
People have their own thoughts
And they base everything that exists
On what they believe
What if you are wrong?
In everything you know
The world isn’t black and white
You bleed red just as any other being does
Yet you are more than another?
Success doesn’t determine who you are
It’s your heart who does
In this playground, we have built
Do you play nice?
You will not leave rich
Nor will they pat you on the back
Because you made lots of cash
Your praise will be because you gave a damn
You gave your heart
And you gave your time
To others who needed you
You were always true

I See You

 Good morning! Happy Wednesday!

Today is going to be a lovely day.

#ISee

My eyes are open

I see more than you think

I see the world

The kindness

The love

I see the light and the dark

Both are beautiful

Everywhere I look

I see

Colours swirling throughout nature

Dark clouds

Bringing dancing storms

A deep blue ocean

A home to many

And just when you think I can’t see

I see more

I see the look in your eye

When you think no one’s looking

I see your heart

That you were on your sleeve

I see that you’re lonely

And feel invisible

But you’re not

Because I see

I see the difference you make

In other people’s lives

The kind words you use

Even though people are blind

I see you

In all the colours you live

And through all the love you share

I see a world

That should open their eyes

See the love that’s offered

And not be so blind

I see people

In need of so much

Yet they walk in circles

In a world out of touch

I see individuals

They’re bright like stars

I see showers fall from the sky

Consisting of broken hearts

I reach

I try to help

Though I’m not sure I do

No matter what happens

Just know that I see you

Have a beautiful day.

When something makes you feel this good… you just do it no matter what.

Good morning! Happy Tuesday!

Today I’m posting an interview from yesterday.

Author To Author Interview

With Jupiter Rose

 Orville: How long have you been writing?

Jupiter: I started writing about 6 years ago, but it was just a hobby, and I didn’t put much thought into it. I started writing as a career in 2021.

Orville: So much incredible progress in one-year. What got you interested in writing?

Jupiter: I discovered how it made me feel. Writing makes me feel alive.

Orville: Can you elaborate on what you mean by feel-alive?

Jupiter: Writing to me is like breathing. It’s something I must do. It helps me work through my PTSD and anxiety and lights my skies, so my life isn’t so dark. It opens my mind and allows me to see the colours in everything instead of the grey the world sits upon.

Orville: That is wonderful. I’m glad it helps so much. How many books do you have published?

Jupiter: I have 4 fiction books and 3 books of poetry published.

Orville: I’ve read and reviewed all of your novels, and two of the poetry. I love how you paint a story. Are your books self-published or traditionally published?

Jupiter: Self-published

Orville: I’m self-published as well, seems a lot of authors take that path. Where can the reader find your books?

Jupiter:  Amazon, chapters online, Barnes and Noble online. (They can be ordered at your local book stores) http://amazon.com/~/e/B08W8HZT5S

Orville: Self-published wide is a great idea. Do you consider yourself a plotter or pantser?

Jupiter: I am a bit of both. When I get bored I plot. However, I write whatever comes to mind. I can plot a story out, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to turn out that way. I take notes. I believe in making sure all ticks and scars are taken care of.

Orville: I tried plotting, it doesn’t work for me. What do you think makes your writing unique?

Jupiter: I have a poetic style to my writing. I love to write about the light and the dark side of everything in life while twisting my words to make you see the point of view in both.

Orville: That comes across strong in your books. What are your hobbies outside of writing?

Jupiter: Music, movies, digital art, walking my dog, white water rafting, road trips, reading, photography, travelling, cooking and baking.

Orville: That is impressive and you still find time to write. Who was the greatest influence in your writing career?

Jupiter: My family has been my greatest influence.

Orville: I hear that a lot with authors. Do you have a favourite quote?

Jupiter: Yes, a couple.

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

― Dr. Seuss

“A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best.”

― Marilyn Monroe

Orville: I love the Marilyn Monroe quotes. Tell me about your current work.

Jupiter: Right now I’m working on these books.

(1)    Genavine’s Hell, a paranormal romance, dystopian, and drama. It is the follow up Book to Genavine’s Faith

(2)    My Heart For You, is a romance, and suspense (Book 1)

(3)    Shut Your Eyes, is a romantic suspense (Book 2- Crash Falls)

(4)    The Twenty Four, is a science fiction, dystopian, and aliens (Second book in  Teravaza series)

(5)    Deep Within Her Mind, is a fantasy, paranormal, romance, and adventure  (Book 2- Wind Walkers series)

(6)    Terror in the Shadows, is an occult, detective, mystery, and suspense  (Book 1 in a new series)

(7)    Death In His Eyes, is a horror, and thriller (Book 1 in a new series)

Orville: What genre would you say you write?

Jupiter: I write clean romance in multiple genres. Suspense, dystopian, paranormal, science fiction, mystery, occult, fantasy, and drama.

Orville: What are your published book titles?

Jupiter: Novels

Rain of the Wolves

Tears of a Cowgirl

The Missing Pieces of Teravaza

Genavine’s Faith

Poetry books

Poetry Frozen Within The Battle Of A Mind

When Darkness Shadows The Light

The Monster In Me

Orville: All excellent. And everything is on Kindle Unlimited?

Jupiter: Yes, all my work is available Kindle Unlimited

Orville: When will your next book be available?

Jupiter: I am working on multiple. My next set of releases will be in a few months.

Orville: Last question. Who is your target audience?

Jupiter: I think my books are for anyone who enjoys clean romance. If there are triggers, I say so beneath the blurb. There’s some swearing, but the romance is clean.

TEARS OF A COWGIRL By Jupiter Rose

MY FULL REVIEW OF THIS 5-STAR NOVEL

I don’t like to review a book and give away too many details. The author did a wonderful job with suspense and mystery. You will want to enjoy that for yourself.

This book is about so many things and you will take away more than it is a love story, or a story about domestic abuse.

For me, this is a story about kindness and how simple acts can change a person’s life. It is also about bonds of relationships and understanding that there is more to being friends than making the claim.

If you like a well-spun story to read in your comfortable chair or bed. This is it.

If you seek inspiration and hope. This is it.

If you want a story, that will keep you reading, waiting for the next twist and turn. This is it.

I believe you will love this book and close the cover wishing you personally knew the cast of characters so you could pack your bags for a trip to Crash Falls.

Have a beautiful day. ❤

Two Together Equals One

Good morning!

I wanted to make sure I put out my daily poem.

#One

I am

I will

I can

Find the non existent

I open my eyes

And without hesitation

I dart toward the dark path

A loud cry

Echoes in my ears

No one else is there

The echo is from soul

It’s falling

My grip slips

I fall into the pits of Hell

My heart

My soul

My destiny

Held by darkness

In the purgatory of my mind

I sing to the moon

It seeps from my lips like a howl

My wolf laughs for he is in control

My heart he guards

My soul he sleeps upon

I run the paths of the darkest night

Searching for love

Hiding from my pain

I see both

Running together

Hand in hand

Challenging life

For love and pain are one

Life is dark and light

And to exist in both

You must walk through the shadows

Have a beautiful day.

Follow Your Dreams Never Let Go

Good morning! Happy Monday!

It’s going to be beautiful. It’s going to be productive, any step forward is progress

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately and something someone said to me really hit home. I’m a true believer of chasing your dreams. I believe they exist and that we could get them if we work hard enough. Occasionally, a person gets them handed to them, I really don’t know how that happens, but it does. If you want something a lot of the times you need to sacrifice something else or take a leap of faith to get there, life doesn’t just happen, we may exist every day, but it’s still something we must work at.

If you want those dreams, then you need to get off your butt and go get them. I’m still chasing mine, but I’ll never give up, because I know they’re achievable.

What dreams do you have?

If there is a will, there’s a way.

William Hazlitt (1822)

——-✨✨✨——-

#Dreams

There’s a dream in my eye

It began as a sparkle

But over time it grew

Now it stands

Large like a mountain

And each day I climb

Towards the top

When I succeed

I will look down at my steps and weep

For each day

I worked hard

I laughed

I cried

I lived

I held onto my friends

And danced in the light

That day is the day I will begin again

For what is life without dreams

Dance with me

Rise with me

Follow your dreams

Have a beautiful day.

Have A Beautiful Sunday

Good morning! Happy Sunday!

Today is about relaxing and prepping fro a new week.

How do you spend your Sunday?

#TrickOrTreat

The night was dark

And all that could be seen

Was the shadow of the moon

And a path to the in-between

No one knew

what it was for

But together they went

Four by four

Into the dark they went willingly

No one knew to scream

But they should of you see

Behind the closed doors

There was a darkness that awaits

He holds a hunger for humans

And loves how they taste

Piddly humans how they are easy to lure 

Show them some mystery

And they will open the door

Now the earth is so empty

And no one is left

Darkness has moved in 

The new world begins

Have a beautiful day.

The Music In My Heart

Good morning! Happy Saturday!

Today is going to be a great day, other than not being with my family… which won’t last long I’m going home in November.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I have nothing else to do but think here. I’ve lived in BC off and on throughout my whole life, in total I’d say 14 years. For me that’s a long time. I’ve traveled my entire life.

I grew up in Air Force brat, and continued to travel after that, it’s all I knew. I lived in Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Germany, but I’ve traveled everywhere in between. I was in Germany for two years and during that time, I went all over Europe.

  • France
  • Belgium
  • England
  • Scotland
  • Luxemburg
  • Holland
  • Austria
  • Denmark
  • Switzerland

I moved to the country of Georgia in 2019. It was supposed to be for a short time, but when covid hit, it ended up being a little bit longer. I made it home to Canada, but my family didn’t. So, I’ve been over here, and my family’s been there.

One thing I noticed about Georgia is the way they live, they’re like a mini-America in some ways, but it’s a very poor country. They have nearly everything available that you could need, but the people don’t make a lot of money.

They have outdoor markets. The smaller one is for the farmers that are poor, then there’s a bigger one for more experienced farmers, and a fish market down by the sea.

Their money is called Gel or Lar, it is worth double Canadian and triple American. Nothing is overly expensive there, rent you’ll pay anywhere from 800 – 1600 Lar for an apartment, but you must go through the locals for that. If you cannot bargain you will pay 2500 US dollars. Taxi cabs are cheap, it would cost you 5 to 10 Lar to go across the city of 500,000 people.

There’s a train that goes across Georgia. It’s not expensive but it’s old, it’s nothing like the American trains.

This country used to be part of Russia and they do pretty good on their own, but the import a lot of food from Turkey. Now the food is good, but the Turkish farmers use chemicals on their vegetables that they grow, and it caused me allergies. My entire family has gotten allergies from it. However, the food over is fresh. There’s even some hybrid vegetables, like lime tomatoes, squash zucchinis, and they taste really good.

Any way this girl needs to go write. Her pen is calling. XOXOX

#TheMusicInMyHeart

There’s a song in my soul

Its rhythm

Matches the beating of my heart

I will always stay with me

It plays during the day

Carrying me through harsh storms

It paints a smile upon my face

When times are dark

I can hear it

When I am drowning

In the vast blue sea

Sinking lower than I have ever been

Yet I hear that tune

And I wake

It helps me fight

The struggle seems easier

It lights the darkness

Giving me a path to follow

That song is of you

It began the day you touched my heart

Have a beautiful day.

I can’t quite read the name but the artists name is on the picture.

On The Edge Of Butterfly Wings

Good morning! Happy Friday!

Today is a lovely day.

In less than two months I’m going overseas. I can’t wait until I get to spend my time with my family. I’ll still be on every day but just happier.

Where are you from?

I’ll be in the country of Georgia.

#ButterflyWings

As the daylight breaks

I will soar through the sky

Shining in the light

Of the bright sun

While drifting on the wings of a butterfly

I am free

Like a bird

I soar

Finally, I see

The truth

As it unfolds

Slowly

Twirling in the sky

Like a ballerina

Dancing in the light

But now

I wait for the night

As the moon will rise

Just to be with me

I will dance beneath it

Bare

My soul clinging, to its very existence

I will call my wolf

One howl at a time

Come, my love

Dance with me

We are one

For he will be running beneath the stars

And when he can no longer run

I will carry him

And with my wings, we will soar

Have a beautiful day.

I Take Back The Day I Let Sorrow Lock Me Up.

Good morning! Happy Thursday!

Today is a lovely day. There has been this bird outside my window for the last couple of weeks. It has an odd song. I really like it though. It’s one that you can’t miss you just know he’s there.

The moon’s bright. I like these nights best. I sit enjoying my #coffee, and I wait for the sun to rise. For some, this might be too early, but for me, it’s the perfect time of day. It’s calm, which makes it much easier to wake up.

I’m on this #journey of self-discovery, and I plan to make the best of it. Sometimes we need to open our eyes and realize that just because you are a pro at living doesn’t mean you are living right.

My first thought about this journey is:

No matter what life throws at me, I’m still standing. I have survived everything it has put in my way. I am strong and I can do it again if need be. I think that is why I refer to myself as a wolf. I have roamed this earth doing nothing but surviving. Now it’s time to live.

#NoMore

I’ve lived through pain

And tasted sorrow

At its darkest time

I’ve hung from the moon

Feeling my last breath leave

Like a tree waving in the wind

Leaves falling to the ground

Like my soul thundering throughout time

Falling into Hell

I have felt my heart ripped from my chest

Only to have it handed back

Torn and broken

But now I scream

No more

I won’t take it

I will climb that moon and take back my breath

And own my pain

I will carry my sorrow

And heal it with love

For no one but me knows its darkness

I will light that dark

So it never feels alone

My wolf will roam free

For it’s been trapped way too long

It’s time for it to run

And pound this earth

Like a mighty beast

My broken heart will heal

The tears will fade in time

For I am a warrior

Who will not only rise

But I will soar

I won’t go down in flames

Have a beautiful day.
