After almost 2 years I finaly got the time to upload my book Beyond The Horizon on AMAZON. I had to sign and send a lot of papers for tax purposes, but it is finaly done… and also was my mistake I missed the e-mail from Amazon stating that all is in good order and I can publish. Better later than never.

It is a great feeling to know you have so many friends around the world. In less than one and a half month I had the pleasure to “meet” so many wonderful people. Is like a world tour because every time I see a new flag on my map(It is a map and lower some lists with the countries you came from to visit my humble blog)  I start to read about it and I try to see the places from where you all are coming from. Those are the times when I think “Maybe the world is not that big anymore”. So, 47 countries, 31/51 states of the great US of A, over 300 followers and 400 comments, more than 5,000 page views(I installed the widget only after about 10 days after starting this blog) in this short time.

Flags

I never visited 47 countries before, but now I did it thanks to you.

31 out of 51 USA states…looks great. Thanks a lot.

It is a great feeling to know I have met so many people from so many different countries … and, Yes, the world is not that big anymore.

We may find the peace and the joy in our lives,

Andreas.

My volume of poetry#2

Dear friends,

My book becomes bigger and bigger every day, but the real challenge seems to be everything else than the effective writing. For a self published author there are a lot of issues to solve by yourself starting from covers of the book, finding a good enough( price vs. quality) typography to print the book, but the most challenging I find to be the composition of the book itself. In what sequence I will arrange my poems? The book is not finished yet, but this just crossed my mind. I read a lot a and I saw different ways, but at this moment I just don’t know if to like it or not or if it is another new way to do it … in such a way than to transmit the message better. It is not easy, but it is fun…it is like waiting a baby to be born. I am a father of three beautiful girls and I waited a lot the birth moment, but I was never a mother of something and just now I fell like a mother or better said just how I think a mother can feel in her carrying days. So, from going through a dilemma to a trilemma was easier and my trilemma is growing everyday.

My volume of poetry

I just started my first volume of poetry with Haiku, Senryū and Tanka. That’s why maybe, for a while, I will not post so often as I did before. I will use some of my poems already posted here, but also new ones or rewrote some of already posted. I just found that writing the poems was the “easiest” part and to find the proper order for the poems and to prepare the rest is harder than I thought before starting this book. I don’t have a name yet and that is another issue. Anyway I will let you know how are the things going. I hope everything will be alright and in a reasonable amount of time to publish my book and to proudly present it to you.

Yours as always,

Andreas.

sanziene-galbene-galium-verumI have just wrote a tanka about The Night of the Goldenrod and, having the experience with another tanka of mine(Though love), which I had the pleasure to explain it in an article(The Sun and the Moon-the myths), I will not wait too long to make an haibun  for explaining, the best I can, the meaning of this Night of the Goldenrod.

So, today I will try to explain you the marvelous myths that I know from elders or from my readings. Continue reading

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAAs promised, today we will talk about the trees and flowers, only colors and beauty. I will do my best to show you what I saw and to share with you what I felt in this trip that begins to look more spiritual that it was intended, at least by me. My girlfriend has a different opinion about this, but tangled are her methods … but it worked and is all that matter at the end. Continue reading

Zakynthos mapWhen I was a child I hated expository text works in literature even if I was a member in a number of “literature circles”. Maybe I was just too young and not very wise. I was about to say smart, but looking back I think I should add that, too. So, be gentle with this travelogue and don’t expect the unespected. Expect only to read about a gorgeous place and his wonderful sights, to see some of what I saw Continue reading

NASA are inviting people tocraft own message to Mars wich will be recorded on ” a DVD to be carried aboard a spacecraft that will study the Martian upper atmosphere”. Continue reading
