#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Hot as Hell and sore ears (29 April 2017)

29 April 2017

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Hot as Hell and sore ears

     
7h50am Saturday morning, waking to sunshine and twitching ears. Darn. Just can not get this under control, can I? Not entirely. But we will tend to it shortly. At least yesterday was a great day and we will face today with determination and courage as well.
      Battling ahead bravely.
      Reflecting on yesterday's visit. Sorting things out for myself whilst checking early morning emails and social media.
      Random thoughts triggers memories from so long ago and I capture the snippets as they play off as if in holographic format. That is probably where the sore ears are coming from. The psyche screaming to let go and flow with the memories, yet I am resisting for I still have a life to live here, a book to edit. I do not want to immerse myself in days gone by, for then I will surely be unavailable again to my family for days on end.
      My focus needs to be here . . .
      "*Excuses, excuses. Just get on with it!*" - Duek. Still with me and still as funny as ever.
      *I know* I reply. *Let me just get the morning stuff out of the way. I will start on the other books a bit later, okay? Can we settle down with the ears now, please?*
      That plea obviously fell on deaf ears.

10am Physical expenditure ending in stitches of laughter until the eyes shed water and the lungs could not take in any air any longer. Okay, so gym out of the way for today.
      The laughter therapy and good spirit is unfortunately marred with ear ache. Still uncomfortable. ::snap fingers:: darn!

12h00pm Getting on with placing Blogs and #SaturdayScenes as I have readers eagerly waiting for it. This is becoming a daily event. I hope I can keep this going.

12h30pm Hubby brings offering of food. Lunch is served. Real English Fish and Chips.
      Yesterday was Pomegranates and figs!

1pm Off to bed to try and settle the body. Topical anaesthetic drops for ears and pain gel has no effect. Conclusion. Not a physical condition, thus just bear it until it has run its course.

4pm Ready to face life again. Discomfort shifted to other ear. Definitely metaphysical. Okay, whatever. We will go with the flow.

5pm Went for a ten minute walk to get some sun. Tired now. Youngest states I better get some more sleep. Will see, will see.

10h50pm Put in a good, solid stretch of internet work, some new writing, editing and re-reading.

Satisfied with today despite uncomfortable ears.


Writing report for 29.04.2017:
Chlophilia Feedback from Alpha Reader Chapter 102 = "Beloved! I so enjoyed this chapter! Yes, it was amusing and lots tickled me into laughter, but it's not funny at all - it reveals life on another planet so unlike ours that it's unbelievable --- and yet it's as real as Earth ... we Earthlings are so arrogant that we believe every planet must have living beings like US on it ... rubbish! I'd rather be a 'simple' plant than a human Earthling!"

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Pies and Visitors (28 April 2017)

28 April 2017

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Pies and Visitors


6am Up. Start emails and checking everything relevant to Dayjob. Earache no longer there so we hope it stays away. Bit floaty, not grounded. Misalignment? Probably. Or just busy many places at the same time again. Feel more scattered than misaligned as there is no headache or any other ache present this morning. Weird, actually. Unusual. Something to ponder on but I have to have absolute control over all faculties today as it is going to get hectic soon and I have visitors coming over this afternoon.
      So yes, one heck of a day ahead.

9h55am Vibrations under control. Bright-eyed and ready to commence travel to next town to courier parcels. Off on an adventure!

12pm Back home. Not much of an adventure except that traffic is already picking up for the longer than usual weekend with influx of visitors.
      Oh, yes, and a thought upon a unique pie.
      We sometimes purchase pies on these excursions and as our regular outlet did not have my preferred pepper pie available, I had to settle for steak (yes, I'm a meat eater, shock and horror!)
      Thus, as everything in life is an adventure, I consumed the saucy pie, winning the lotto with eventually biting into one (1) single piece of steak!
      Heck. Luck of the draw. Otherwise, it was a not too bad a vegetarian pie.

12h30pm Done with contacting clients and emails. Day-job on skeleton staff as nothing much happens after 12pm on Fridays in any case. Thus time to prepare for the visitors this afternoon.

9h12pm Okay. Cleaned up and all back to normal. Visits are strictly on an appointment basis and highly confidential, so no information will be released as per any professional practice. These blogs are about the daily toil of one H Gibson, not about the interests of clients. What I can state is thank you to these clients for a lovely visit. I always learn as much as I teach from everyone I meet. And I do get to meet phenomenal people. Thus, a humble, thank you.

11h50pm Logging off. It had been a long day. A good day.

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Healer Guides and Highs and Lows of Good days (27 April 2017)

27 April 2017

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Healer Guides and Highs and Lows of Good days


12h30am         Sometimes, when my body aches and I can not come to rest, no matter how exhausted I am, I need a bit of assistance.
      Meet Katrina, my personal Healing Guide. One of the lovely Ladies on my Spiritual Team.
      Not many people know about Katrina. She is a quiet person and not much in the forefront of discussions, but a vital part of The Han Storm Saga.
      Katrina has been with me, on and off, in this lifetime, for more than forty years. Before that, she is mentioned in the early stages of the Creata adventures.
      It is Katrina's encouragement and warnings that kept this body alive through childhood, surviving atrocities and serious ill health spells. When this body wished to give out, she guided, sometimes not too friendly, how to heal it.
      But lately, for the last few years, since my sacrum injury and Jade leaving this world, she sometimes assists me with psychic or metaphysical anaesthesia when I can not get to rest.
      Imagine one of Han Storm's doctors? Now you are getting the picture.
      Why? is the next logical question to ask.
      Because sometimes life is just too much. Or the body needs to be contained while the spirit must travel somewhere else.
      Then the body is guarded while being 'out' - literally separated from it.
      This, unfortunately sometimes leads to complications and my beloved sits with me, watching over this body until I return.
      And when morning comes, I wake bright as a button and life-partner is annoyed and grumpy for he had no sleep at all.

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Pain on a RAINY day! 26 April 2017

26 April 2017

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Pain on a RAINY day!

      
      3h30am Day starts due to waking because of aching body. Did too much yesterday. I'm up now and getting on with things. Catching up on Social Media that I missed yesterday, blogs, websites, marketing.
      6h30am Headache starting to settle down. Body manageable. Can't go back to bed. Waiting for courier to collect parcels. Then early morning rounds to Post Office, hunting for food (in the local store, not real hunting, I'm an author. I use metaphors), waiting for overseas clients to collect parcels before returning to the EU. Run of the mill stuff.

      Some thoughts on pain. People feel pain differently. Pain is there for various reasons, but mainly it is the body telling the owner that there is something physically incorrect that needs to be seen to.
      Pain can be handled logically when one knows where it originates from.

      To me, the sensation of Pain is an old friend. I would rather be pain free, but this is not how it is playing off in this lifetime. Pain is part of my life and instead of fighting it, I am learning to embrace it and to listen to it.

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Rat Race and Life Cycles 25 April 2017

#DailyGrind - H Gibson Upon Rat Race and Life Cycles (25 April 2017)

      Bushed! And the day has not even started properly.
      Welcome to an author's life. Worked until the wee hours of the morning, caught a nap and up at dawn. Four hours of working on websites, adding and adjusting code until I was cross-eyed.
      Hour and a half of chores before Day-job continues, overseeing the manufacturing process of our specialized products. Delicate work needing accurate calculations and measurements. Loads of energy expenditure and channeling.
      Early afternoon gone in a flash.
      Home and a well deserved half hour power nap follows.

      3pm. Right. Next stretch of the day starts with office work, depot work, order work.
      Darn! Only three cups of coffee so far. Food? Hmm. Dinner should do it, sometime. Chocolate bar must suffice for now.
      Hurry, hurry, hurry. So much to do, so little time!
      How do we not abuse our bodies with the stress of the daily rat race most of us are enslaved in? Will life ever change? Cycles stay the same.
      Originally it was Seasonal, now, for most humans with jobs it is Monthly cycles. With spring at payday and dead of winter just before. Ironic how life has changed and yet, not changed. Just working in different ways.

      Hit 8pm. Done enough for today. Dinner, shower, bed . . .        

Writing report for 25.04.2017:
Chlophilia Chapter 100 returned from Alpha reader - it is hitting all the correct notes and responses. Purrrfect! I am as delighted as she is with this one. Good job. Pat on my own shoulder.

#DailyGrind H Gibson Upon Past Lives, Pottering, Living in the Now and Healing

     

#DailyGrind H Gibson Upon Past Lives, Pottering, Living in the Now and Healing  (24 April 2017)


 I'm currently re-reading the last chapters of Engaging Chlophilia for my Alpha reader before sending it to her for first scrutiny. I came to the conclusion that whatever guided me to write the books in this order was the proper way of reminding me of my adventures.
      I am only now ready to face this part of my history. Grown up enough to make sense of it all. As I re-read I realize how far I have come in my own evolution of a Soul-Spirit and how finely tuned my experiences are in healing my whole Being.

      Would I have been able, as a human, captured in this body in this lifetime been able to handle these intense memories that had been troubling me for millennia if I had written them in chronological order?

#DailyGrind from The Chronicles of Han Storm (Sunday - 23 April 2017)


#DailyGrind from The Chronicles of Han Storm (Sunday - 23 April 2017)


      I've been asked to start blogging again on a daily basis if possible. People are curious creatures and want to know what happens in the lives of others.

      #DailyGrind #ChroniclesofHan #HGibson
      Having a hard time adjusting to 'life' as I've completed Chlophilia, a 285,000 word book on the 17th.
      My mind is still on the Creata adventure, knowing that I need to complete the pre-reads for my Alpha reader while waiting for her reply on chapters 99-100, but not feeling like re-reading.
      The editor tentatively started on Limier, telling me he likes the story but the translations are a mess. He battled bravely through a few pages, 700 more to go (and now Chlophilia is joining the stable).   
      Feelings, prevalent things at the moment. Day and night cycles turned around. Writing early morning hours and catching up with website adjustments. Body hurts as it sometimes do. Some scars are worse than others. Healing cycle again.
      Then Han Storm  sweeps me up and I type, type, type. Book 6 of the Creata adventure in the making. Stories untold, Kaleb wanting his story to continue with Leilaka. Return to Leilaka looming as well, so many sections already waiting to be completed.
      How do you eat an elephant? A bite at a time.
      Ooooh! Sunday dinner is ready - cooked with love by hubby chef. I'll stuff myself and see what happens next.
      Words for 23.04.2017 -  approx 500 blogs and marketing + 2750 Creata Adventure (New)

Leilaka Chapter 2 - The Chronicles of Han Storm Series - H Gibson - Author

LEILAKA Chapter 2

Trying desperately to sort out his befuddled memory, Han is captured. Not understanding the language makes it difficult to determine friend or foe . . .
"

Someone was asking me to wake up.

A familiar face was looking at me.

She had red hair and green eyes.

Her mouth did not move, yet I could hear her clearly.

A weight was pressing on my chest.

I could not breathe.

Panicked, I opened my eyes from this strange dream.


A shadow was blocking the entrance to my little cave.

This was not a dream.

Maybe if I kept still, they would not notice me.

Someone grabbed my foot.

I screamed at the person to let go, kicking out with my other foot, which was simply caught and used to drag me out of the hole.

Blinded by the sudden sunlight, I could only see shadows and light, but was determined not to be taken again.

Kicking and screaming, I yelled at them to leave me alone.

Two more shadows came forward.

My light body was quickly subdued by the man holding me. He simply restrained me by pinning my arms to my sides, lifting me off the ground. My legs could not reach him to inflict harm.

An authoritive voice gave me a command.

I stopped struggling, focusing on the older man.

He talked to me in a soothing way.

I felt I could trust this man.

He came forward. Taking hold of my chin, he inspected my face before asking me a question.

I did not understand his language, so kept quiet. "

Leilaka Chapter 1 - The Chronicles of Han Storm Series - H Gibson - Author


LEILAKA Chapter 1

Han wakes up from Crio-sleep to find himself in the worst possible situation . . .

"There was nothing but incredible pain. Every breath I drew brought more pain to my body.

Pain.

Breathe out.

Pain.

Breathe out.

I moved my body to a more comfortable position. My left arm and leg were hanging free, a gentle breeze playing over them.

Come to think of it, the breeze was ruffling my hair.

Slowly rolling onto my side, I brought my limbs back towards my body.

Willing my eyes to open and see what was going on, I discovered that I was lying on a narrow ledge.

The movement brought new pains and my nose started to bleed.

Closing my eyes against the glare of sunlight, I managed to sit up, holding my ribs together with my left hand. My right hand did not want to respond.
