What more can be done?

I haven’t written in a few days due to I know someone at the University of Virginia. I, as many of you, I’m loss for words to express my sympathy or to explain what’s going on?

But I will say this. We need more love in the world. There’s far too much hate.

There seems to be no end to the hatred being spewed. No amount of protesting, love shown, reasoning with seemed to be working. It’s all falling on deaf ear and shunned with a cold shoulder.

Just yesterday, I overheard a young woman say this storm will soon blow over and things return to normal.

This behavior is not normal. Normal people do not drive vehicles into crowds of other human beings.  People do not reanimate as characters in video games. Once a life is taken, you can’t put a token in a slot and the person comes alive again.

However, if you look back on history this is the exact kind of behavior that has destroyed many ancient civilizations. This is how they destroyed themselves from within.

As Dr. King said, quoting Theodore Parker, ““Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

 I’m quoting another, much older saying, “You can’t justify it in the end.”

Things like this is why I included many of the social issues we deal with today in a futuristic series. The changes must start today, we can’t keep delaying social issues that are unpleasant and expect to arrive in an highly evolved, sparkling brand new future with a society ruled by equality and respect for the fellow human; a moneyless society as often portrayed in sci-fi fiction. How is that any different than what Milton wrote in Paradise Lost or Thomas More wrote in Utopia?

They are all pretty much saying the same things but in the end Milton and More wrote it was a wonderful dream. 

I know as I write these words they will be ignored as many others like these have been ignored but my hope is that someone stumble across today, tomorrow, next month, or a hundred years from now and refrain from hurting another human being.

I considered it a compliment

I accepted it as a compliment when I was told by a reader that my writings were provocative as Harper Lee’s. That’s my job as a writer to prompt one to think and reason.

I told them, “Thanks you, I consider that a great honor.” 

I did asked which book were they referring to and they said, “The Tree.”

I then did an intimation of eight year old Ana screaming out the window at the centuries old ghost named Cooter.

“DAMN COOTER! SHUT UP AND SHUT UP NOW! Shut up or get your names straight! If you gonna keep people awake all night then you need to know who you’re calling. MY NAME IS NOT SHELLYANNA, IT’S ANA. BUT you just keep it up until I get down there! I’m gonna give you sumthing to cry about! I’M SICK AND TIRED OF YOUR CRYING ALL NIGHT. PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SLEEP! CAN’T NOBODY DO NOTHING ABOUT YOU IN HELL! YOUR NASTY ATTITUDE IS WHY YOU’RE IN HELL.”

Then she storm down stairs to confront him under the tree.


The reader stared at me a few seconds before doubling over in a hilarious fit of laughing. I knew then they had actually read the book!

Mean Spirit, Ugly Nature: Ugly Soul and a Mean Spirit.

       The past few days has made me rescind what I said last week about August being like the Sunday of the Months of the year. What we witnessed this past weekend in Charlottesville, Va was horrible and doesn’t belongs in any era let alone in the 21st century but sadly, it was actually a cumulative of many of the grotesque acts in American’s past. One would think this late in time we would no longer need to sing, “We Shall Overcome.”

       When people talk about an ugly soul and a mean spirit…too often they confuse the two. There’s a big difference between the two but most of us lump them both together.

     But when you seriously analyze them you will see there’s a big difference between an ugly soul and a mean spirit. An ugly soul does far more harm than a mean spirit.

A mean spirit derives pure joy from your suffering, failures, sobs and wails.  Whereas an ugly soul consolidates power with other ugly souls against all that is good and work to increase the damage. As much energy as an ugly soul put in doing evil and causing damage…the same amount of energy can be applied in doing good.

A mean spirit can ruins your meal and laughter a friend but an ugly soul shaves the fat off your meal and leaves you to starve.

A mean spirit laughs heartily as it punches down to the ground in life. An ugly soul seeks to eradicate your existence entirely.

Mean spirited people you can ignore. An ugly soul must be confronted. There’s no way around it. Ugly sounds will not be ignored. There’s no talking to them or reasoning with them.


   It’s so commonly assumed that physical appears determines one’s interior nature when in truth, it has nothing to do with rather or not one has an ugly soul or a mean spirit. From actually living life I’ve found that most people who truly are physically, or emotionally, and spiritual attractive rarely have a mean spirit or an ugly soul. I find it exist far more often in those who thinks they look better than they actually do. From my encounters with humanity it is those who falls in the “average appearance category” are more likely to be the  proud ugly soul card carrying individuals. 

No, I’m not calling anyone an ugly soul. I’m speaking from life’s observation. I mentioned this because in movies and literature the villain is usually expected to be ugly or very beautiful.

When dealing with ugly souls, please remember they are those completely depraved of reasoning and mercy. Like I said an ugly soul does a lot more harm than a mean spirit. Not that mean spirits aren’t bad because they are. But a mean spirit is often infantile and petty whereas an ugly soul is premeditated, cold, calculative, and deadly.

A mean spirit get joy from your sobs of pain, suffering and wails. And so does, an ugly soul but ugly souls merges together to form power factors against all that is good and righteous. They join create forces to cause as much pain and suffering as possible, in an unholy attempt to erase all that is good.

Ugly souls accuse their victims of atrocities when their victims stand up for themselves whereas a mean spirit will walk away. Your valiant stance have taken the fun out of their act.

An ugly soul doesn’t separate facts from fictions. They will tell and repeat harmful lies with great malice; with intent to cause great harm and continue to tell them no matter how many times their words have been proven to be false.

The truth can silence a mean spirited person but to an ugly soul it bears no relevancy.

A mean spirit will ruin your day, your meal, and your joy with family and friends. While an ugly soul does this and much more while trimming the portly off your meals and leaving you to starve and feels nothing in the progress.And feels justified in doing so.

A mean spirit laughs heartily as it punches down you; as it beat you down. An ugly soul seeks to exterminate your very existence. In the eyes of an ugly soul…you don’t have a right to exist.

With mean spirited people… you can sometimes ignore them but an ugly soul must be always faced because they’re out for blood, not to merely insult you. Ugly souls doesn’t insult you and go away. They keep coming.

Therefore, I don’t agree with a lot of the lightheaded, popular advice given about dealing narcissistic, mean spirited people because in given time all mean spirited people eventually evolves into ugly souls. It’s just a matter of time. All ugly souls started out in life a mean-spirited person who evolved into an ugly soul.

It’s said August is like the Sunday of Summer.

I know you have perhaps heard it said that the month of August is basically the Sunday of Summer or the Sunday of the months of the years.

Well, I think that depends on how you look at it. As a child I used to didn’t want August to show up for it meant back to school. But as an adult and a parent, it could arrive fast enough to send the kids back to school.

As an adult August has a different meaning. A time to take it easy and relax before jumping back into the havoc of life starting again in September.

So enjoy your lazy days of summer.
