I believe that words carry an abundant power and capability to heal. If one book can touch one person, then that positive impact will ripple out and touch more…
Futuro was the first book I published. Below is an excerpt from Futuro and a short story inspired by the Futuro cosmos.
In a quaint café, nestled within the heart of a great city, two mysterious men sat enjoying a late afternoon drink. The older man posing a question to his friend, promising a moment that had been long coming.
“Do you wish to know the story of all time?”
“You’re always hinting at this story!” replied the younger man, almost breaking into laughter at the absurdity of the timing. He longed to hear the mystical fable his good friend was forever alluding to. But here and now? he thought.
The older man smiled at his friend’s reaction, pausing for a moment, before replying with great presence. “My friend, I have not told you. Yet. But I am ready to tell you. Now.”
“For every great story is told to those who need to hear it, at precisely the time they need to hear it most. And this is…” the older man pausing once more as if to take in the energy of the room…
“This is precisely the moment this story must be told.”
Deep, deep in the ocean there lived a small sea fairy. Each day the sea fairy swam among the beautiful coral, caring for it and tending to it. She delighted in its growth, which filled her heart with joy. But, as she lived at such a depth, she could not see the beauty that her loving care was creating far, far above her.
One sleepy night, as a faint, circular glimmer of light refracted into a rainbow above the sea fairy's tiny house, the fairy dreamt a dream. A dream where she sailed on waves of crystal, waves that shone and energised all they touched.
On these waves, she sailed to many lands, dark, light, colourful and bland. In each of the lands the sea fairy raised crops, planted new seeds and tended to animals and magical creatures, the likes of which she had never before seen.
And on leaving each land, she was wished a grateful farewell, as the land was now a better place for having met the sea fairy and feeling her unconditional love and joy.
