    Arrow Of Time Part 2

    Arrow Of Time Part 2

    What is Time, what are its facets, and how is it calculated?
    This episode goes on a personal journey through my childhood, into middle age and beyond. 
     
     
    Below is one of those stories: 
    Time Capsule
    Crayon drawings of stick figures, arts and craft designs along with our signatures. Outline of our hand prints, a cassette tape thrown in with our favourite music.Autumn sun perched in the clouds.Teacher adjusted his Polaroid as we assembled. This moment will be captured and dated.I may never see their faces again since time has a tendency of moving forward. Minutes will turn into days, and days into decades. Everything will be fade. Our Childhood crushes and acne, talent shows and bullies, including our awkward teacher holding the camera.He snapped the photo gathered our stick figures, hand prints and signatures, placed the cassette tape on-top of a Time magazine.Enveloped the photo and wrote the year in the centre.Our teacher said something about the future generations as he cradled our Future relics, placed them in a box, cut out a portion of the school portable and covered it with wood.No one wants to be forgotten, we crave immortality. Everyday we build our time capsules to leave our evidence behind, rather books or work of art, or the children we bear.My stick figures, hand print and signature will live on, in a capsule long after I'm gone.

    Life Flashes

    Life Flashes

    Cody's homeland is ravished by a faceless silent intruder who moves in slow motion. The death toll rises almost undetected, unreported until now.
     
     
    Life Flashes is written by Don Newton please visit his  Website and check out his novels in Amazon
    Personal NoteWhen I was about ten years old I almost died. I peddled my bicycle to the top of a busy street and then I gunned it down. Most people would take their time, use caution and process the ramifications, but remember I was ten. Thinking ahead and utilizing risk analysis was a foreign concept.The traffic light turned red. My bicycle was moving at light speed. The cars started to move. I hit the brakes but it was too late. When they say, 'Life Flashes before your eyes' they are right. All of my past memories flooded to the surface. Each thought was sharp, distinct. I knew this was the end, no redo or second chances. I screamed but then I accepted it.I barrelled half way through the intersection narrowly missing the vehicles, jumped the curb and crashed into a street lamp. My bike wrapped around the pole, thankfully I survived without a scar.FeedbackHave you had a 'Life Flashed before your eyes experience?' let me know on twitter @poeticearthling or leave a message at Poeticearthlings/contactIf your receiving value from these episodes please Buy me a coffee you can contribute per episode or on a monthly basis.

    Ultimate Unboxing Video

    Ultimate Unboxing Video

    Trevor, a nondescript YouTube geek, struggles at the bottom of the ratings.He received an Amazon package from the other side of the universe that changed his life forever.This episode is dedicated to Elvis, not that Elvis, but to my big brother. He's into Drones, and other radio controlled vehicles. His channel, Toronto RC, is the best RC channel on YouTube. I'm not saying that because he's my brother or probably I am.The Ultimate Unboxing video is a modern day tale of how far a person can go to achieve fame.Many of us are not satisfied with our carrier or current life status, we long for a promotion, for the office window seat, to be recognized as an influencer in our field.Social media has made it possible to turn a nobody into a living icon with one viral video.If your lucky your blog post, tweet or rant could be picked up by a major network making you into an overnight sensation.But you have better chances of being struck by lightning or winning the lotto max, non the less people kill themselves for the price of fame.Why do we do this?I think the answer is immortality.We want to leave our mark and not a footnote. We want our star to continue to shine long after we're gone.Music for this episode is by:Jason ShawMy brother's channel is Toronto RCDon Newton's short story, Life Flashes, will be our next episode.

    Quickening Part 3, Writing On The Wall

    Eric Raven, are intrepid astronaut who embarked on a one way mission to Mars comes face to face with his doppelganger 400 years into the future.Dark Samaritan, the writer of the Quickening series has outdone himself by adding more complexities and intrigue into the current episode.I enjoy when a writer takes a familiar theme such as time travel, and morphs it into a different direction. Dark Samaritan is also good at placing ordinary characters into extraordinary situations. You can follow him on Twitter @Samaritandark The poem on the jail-cell wall is by the Nigerian poet and friend to the show, Okon Ukeme Cornelius Dominic, his Twitter is @Apoeticnovelist His book The Accent Ascent Of the soul is available on Amazonalong with a couple more of his books.

Short little tid bits of this and that. Little wispers in your ear, then a thought, then splat! Mind your thoughts. Where's he going with that?!
