Other Worlds — Source of Inspiration

There is not “other world” I know only what I’ve experienced. If what you experience is different is one of us in illusion? What is an illusion but someone else’s reality? Maybe all is real perhaps nothing it. Either way, it doesn’t matter for I only know what I’ve experienced the rest is contemplation.

Review: “Welcome to the Hotel Yalta” by Victoria Dougherty

writerchristophfischer

30973578I am a big fan of Victoria Dougherty and her Cold Noir Writing. Having met her in person in Prague, the city with a Cold War history, and scene of her amazing book “The Bone Church” , definitely has helped to bring this new book to the top of my tbr pile.

The blurb:
An heiress who can’t seem to keep her legs closed. A Russian plan for dominating the space race. An assassin with a penchant for rich food and sadistic murder. When you’re alone in the cold, passion and betrayal are commodities and love hangs on by an icy thread. From the author of The Bone Church and Cold, comes a white knuckle tour de force of Cold War noir.

Find the book on Amazon US and Amazon UK

My review:

“Welcome to the Hotel Yalta” comprises of six marvellous short stories, all set in the dubious twilight…

Kaluluwang Dalisay

ladyleemanila

july-24Ang bawat isa ay may isang bagay sa kanila
Isang kasanayan, isang katangian , na natatangi
Pinararangalan natin ang mga kaluluwa napakadalisay

Maaari nating basahin, maaari nating hangaan
Sa isang biblioteka ng mga kaluluwa
Ang bawat isa ay may isang bagay sa kanila

Palayain ang espiritu , ilibre ang mga kaluluwa
Gumagala sa paligid sa mundong ito
Isang kasanayan, isang katangian , na natatangi

Hayaan ang mga ito na mananatiling dalisay
Huwag bumigay sa masasamang gawa
Pinararangalan natin ang mga kaluluwa napakadalisay

Each one has something in them
A skill, a trait, that’s unique
We honour the souls so pure

We can read, we can admire
In a library of souls
Each one has something in them

Free the spirit, free the souls
Roaming around in this world
A skill, a trait, that’s unique

Let them remain untainted
Don’t give in to evil deeds
We honour the souls so pure
