Mourning Wood – Volume 1: Fiction

Mourning Wood - cover

A rousing romp through short stories, author Michael Wood guides us through his early works. Although the stories would stand alone as in an ordinary anthology, the commentary that Wood adds at the beginning of each installment adds not only depth and focus, but also color to his creation.

The first volume in a two part series, Wood revisits 14 unique stories in all their original glory. Some stories are obviously better than others, and are introduced sequentially, from his earliest works to his more current acts of fiction. An introduction to the second volume, Mourning Wood – Volume II: Non-fiction, is at the end of the book, tempting the reader to wonder about the next installment.

We can only hope that Mr. Wood continues to practice his craft, and release further, newer works.

Change Your Reality by a Thought

I just finished reading a book called happy pocket.

It was one of the most mind bending books on success and the world around us that I’ve ever read. It opened my mind up to sooo many ideas, but the main thing was we literally have complete control over every aspect of our lives.

It broke down the science of success and happiness to quantum physics… haha probably sounds a little crazy already ;) The basic principle that It talks about though is that we are the cause of our circumstances, not the result.

What Is Energy?

To tell you how that works, I gotta break it down first.. When you look at a cell under a microscope its made up of molecules, those molecules are made up of atoms, which are made up of sub-atomic particles which aren’t made up of energy, they are energy.
