"In my opinion, nothing sexual is evil unless one party is harmed. Sex makes the world go 'round. It's Nature. However, I am very impressed with your apparent obsession with evil in the human subconscious. Evil persists in us, meaning the type of evil that deliberately hurts others. Watson's latest book correlates with your own findings, IMO. Most people IMO see me and dismiss me as an aging fart. Only a few can relate to my inner self, and you are one of these few."
I am very grateful for this opinion because it points to the underlying strengths behind these 25 short fictions for adults- seeing that light exists even in the darkest dark and, indeed, cannot exist independently of it.' CM ♥
‘In order for the light to shine brightly
the dark must be present.’
‘I matter much less than the matter of my
several works of creative expression. Fact.
To allow any spurious interest in ‘me’ to cloud
any path to an appreciation of my work would be,
I believe, seriously misguided.
Misguided people constantly vilify me on
social networks- I must be writing it too right
I hope they read this introduction.
My hope is that they read the entire book
and find their disabling delusions reflected
in the many stark mirrors of it.
Let me say this- intros to books bore me
so I shall be brief:
I do not suffer from the disease of faith.
I have no faith in the Freudian and Jungian
unproven interpretations of either dreams
I share a belief, with a minority, in
father/mother NATURE, the power of
unconditional love and universal creative
collaborations. Without these things we would
not be here and without constantly exploring
the parameters of our understanding of such
things we run the risk of preparing our species
I share a belief in ‘truth’.
I am wired to be a truthist: the progenitor of
‘THE SHOCK OF THE TRUE’.
I do try my very best to trust.
This all makes ‘me’ immensely vulnerable
and an easy target in a sick society where
hypocrisy and lies have become a common
currency. But, I will by will alone constantly
make repeat attempts to be free to be me,
to allow myself the freedoms to create what I do,
to be free of all of the pain inflicted on me by you
and my countless experiences of you.
I have said enough, intimated a great deal.
My priority, as ever, is to let my work do the talking.
I find it hard to forget that these troubled times
we live in reflect the shameful lack of trouble we
purposely take to make them trouble-free.
Shooting ourselves in both feet we are
traveling nowhere fast."
When you spend seven years creating something- because that is your way of working, it is quite hard to treat your outpourings with the indifference that many self-published volumes continue to deserve.
I just cannot do it.
Instant 'books' choc full of cut-ups and piss poor faux poetry should not be aired- well that is a personal opinion: they should have the air around them properly sucked to the point of suffocation. LOL.
People who proliferate such publishings and their lame 'publishers' are systematically poisoning the art of reliable and genuine critique. What they see as revolutionary is in fact REVOLTING. LOL. The real literary jihad is the pure art of holding up a mirror to these pretenders and demanding that they see the ugly and delusional truth about themselves. Yee ha!
Blimey- it seems I do have a purpose in life.' CM
