It is a miniature orchestra in itself… I was born to play the guitar!

I would make peace with all…For the monster never dies!

“I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”

Has anyone ever written anything for you, the untold story inside? Remember me.

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.”
― Stephen King, Different Seasons

Lose the world, but gain the universe & by doing nothing more…Than letting go!

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
― Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”

News Mash: Stephen King? Killing the joy in eBooks! While Karin Slaughter is…Bustin’ it out!

“Sit in a room and read — and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time. This realization of life can be a constant realization in your living. When you find an author who really grabs you, read everything he has done. Don’t say, ‘Oh, I want to know what So-and-so did’—and don’t bother at all with the best-seller list. Just read what this one author has to give you. And then you can go read what he had read. And the world opens up in a way that is consistent with a certain point of view. But when you go from one author to another, you may be able to tell us the date when each wrote such and such a poem—but he hasn’t said anything to you.”

Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, with Bill Moyers

The thing is though…

About reading in this digital age?

Some authors?

Make it so much easier:

[via Amazon]From Karin Slaughter comes a fast and furious tale in which no one is quite who they seem. This electrifying eBook novella featuring Will Trent is a prequel to Slaughter’s upcoming novel, Unseen.

Detective Will Trent is standing in a Georgia convenience store, waiting on an obstinate Icee frozen drink machine. To the surveillance cameras and bored staff of the Lil’ Dixie Gas-n-Go, however, Will appears to be someone very different—the menacing ex-con Bill Black. Going undercover as Bill, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent is about to infiltrate the most corrupt town in the most corrupt county in the new American South. But first: his Icee.

Everything changes in one horrific instant, as all hell breaks loose at the Lil’ Dixie. A cop is shot. A bag of cash goes flying across the floor. A young woman disappears while a killer takes off in a battered pick-up truck. Within seconds, Will is in pursuit.

Than others.

Though the exact reason why?

Is beyond me:

[via DailyMail]Misery for e-books! Stephen King to release his new novel in paper format only ~By Paul Thompson

More than a decade after becoming one of the first authors to publish an e-book, horror writer Stephen King has turned his back on digital publishing.

The best selling writer has refused to allow his latest book Joyland to be published in digital format

He hopes his fans will continue to buy his books in the print form and give a boost to many booksellers worldwide who are struggling to compete against e-books.

‘I have no plans for a digital version,’ King told the Wall St. Journal.

‘Maybe at some point, but in the meantime, let people stir their sticks and go to an actual bookstore rather than a digital one.’

His decision will be welcomed by booksellers who have been hit by a drop in visitors to stores due to the increasing popularity of e-books.

King’s latest book, which is set in North Carolina amusement park in 1973, is tipped to be a best seller.

His decision to turn his back on digital publishing comes as sales of e-books are at an all time high. with 457 million sold last year

Digital books generated $3bn in revenue last year – and increase of 44 per cent on the previous year.

Kudos to you, Ms. Slaughter.

As for you, Mr. King?

What a killjoy!?

Joyland

Does this mean, however, I will not be reading Mr. King’s new book?

Pffft, hello, we are still talking Stephen King here. So, yes, I will definitely be reading it.

But it might take me awhile to actually GET to book store, hence the “Dang & blast…”

It all, inconvenience.

Jeez.

Ah, well…

Just give me something to look forward to, I suppose.

How about you?

“Driving a hot car is a lot like sex to me, or a lot like I keep thinking sex should be: A total body experience, overwhelming, to all the senses, taking you places you’ve never been, packing a punch that leaves you breathless and touches your soul. The Viper was way more satisfying then my last boyfriend.”
