Prologe from my book Incubus: Folklore Series Book 3

"PROLOGUE

 

Sleep Paralysis.  It is a not uncommon occurrence where a person wakes in the middle of the night and cannot move.  This usually comes with a panicked feeling, accompanied by noises and movement in the room, seen mostly through peripheral vision.  It can also come with a heavy feeling on your chest and a shadowy mass on top of you. 

Science has explained it all away, claiming that your body is simply locked in place as per usual sleep routines that your body and mind put upon you in order to prevent you from acting out your dreams. Many times, that is the case.  But, every once in a while, more often than not, when a person experiences sleep paralysis, it is caused by a malevolent presence that never walked the universe in mortal form.

Shadow people, nightmare demons, dark fairy folk, and even alien visitation are a few things that could cause these nocturnal torments.  However, out of them all, the worst you could experience is the assault of an incubus."...

I was once crazy, then life drove me sane....

"A soldier’s perception of a battle is limited by what he can see and hear.  He may see his comrades standing next to him or, if the smoke is not too thick, the enemy across the field.  He may hear the angry buzz of the Minié balls and the roar of the cannon.  But for him, there is no grand, overarching plan where soldiers move like pieces on a chessboard.  For him the fight is intensely personal, often reduced to two men:  himself and the enemy soldier trying to kill him." -- The Cause of Darkness

“Every journey must proceed at its own pace, each step following the other in its proper order. For that is the way of life.”

“Man is a malcontent; a disaffected sojourner, seeking Elysium. Someday, when we can freely move in time, through space, even into the other dimensions, I’m afraid we will be disappointed. Like Alice, man, too, will discover life isn’t any better – or worse – through the looking glass, only different.”

          Collin Crowly from Elysian Dreams by BJ Neblett ...

“Love knows no boundaries, seeks no guidance; obeys no rules.”

                        From No Boundaries by BJ Neblett

...

“We are the sum total of our experiences. Those experiences – be they positive or negative – make us the person we are, at any given point in our lives. And, like a flowing river, those same experiences, and those yet to come, continue to influence and reshape the person we are, and the person we become. None of us are the same as we were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.”

            From George by BJ Neblett    ...

“I am just a roadside attraction on your journey down life’s highway, a place you stop briefly before moving on. Years from now, in a long-forgotten box of memories, you’ll come across one of my souvenirs and think of me. And maybe you’ll smile.”

                        BJ Neblett (8-2016)

“The two greatest assets a writer can have are an unbridled imagination and to have lived an unabashed life.”

                        From All The Wrong Places by BJ Neblett

...

Your greatest relief is to accept yourself exactly as you are because the only real misery is you wanting you to be in some other way. When it’s realized you have been hiding from yourself, there you are…

Education

By D.M. McGowan 2018

 

They taught us many things in school and some of us where fine

At following the words and rules along a designated line

A few were branded trouble when they left the proven trail

And popped the system bubble when they just refused to fail

 

“If you do exactly what we say you’re sure to get an “A”

Though you may not learn very much to help you through the day

But you’ll get the all important grade and be every politician’s dupe

For if you follow where you’re lead you’ll think they speak the truth”

 

What many didn’t see both students and the staff

It isn’t learning simple facts but how to love and laugh

Edison, Curie, Gates and Einstein they all had imagination

They didn’t follow another’s path or stay locked within their station.

 

Sure there is knowledge we all need in writing, science and math

Some we need more than others depending on our chosen path

And if you intend to just get along to do only as you’re told

What need for any new idea? What need to be so bold?

 

But if you intend to make a mark to be a Gates, or Jobs or Woz

You’ll need some imagination to be anywhere near the top

How do you exercise imagination, build its strength and survival?

Understand poetry, fiction and music to rise above any rival.

 

 

“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.” Marie Curie.

 

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”  Jane Austen

 

“Study the past and you’ll know your mistakes aren’t unique.” Dave McGowan
