What Would You Do?

 What Would You Do?
By Beth Bowland
What would you do if you saw a crying child
sitting on the curb, as if all alone in the wild.
What would you do if you were approached by someone in need
would you ignore them like others, glare at them, leave them be.
What would you do if you saw a stranger crying
the pain so great, say to yourself what's the use of trying.
What would you do if there was no sun
how would you relate to the days to come.
What would you do if you only had a week to live
would you learn to love more, learn to give?
If love is giving and love is kind
why are so many ignorant and blind.
If life is but a whisper
we have a big task at hand
to give love unconditionally
to our fellow man.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!!

Especially to my father the late, great Ernest Staples. How I wish you were still here, so we could laugh and talk like we used to.

I miss watching you draw and sketch out different characters and talking about that picture book that you always wanted to write. Thank you for passing your creativity to me. It has allowed me to pick up and write where you left off.

I have your wacky sense of humor. Your creativity. Because you taught me about tools, I have ability to tackle any home project--large or small, just move out of my way and give me my tools.

When I was little you tied those Everlast boxing gloves onto my toothpick arms and taught me how to box--introducing me to physical fitness. Because of you teaching me how to clean, load & shoot a gun. I qualified as an EXPERT shooter with the military...Yeah Baby!!  I can garden, fish, shoot pool and outplay anyone in pingpong!!
((Pssst!...remember when you taught me how to hot-wire a times!!...I'm proud to tell you that I never tried it again since that day LOL!!))

Thanks Pops!!

Seven Shades of Luminosity 

Now available in paperback format!

When 13-year-old Ralph and his two friends enter a magical world called Norwaeja, they find themselves on an unexpected quest for seven keys, each of which leads them closer to a dark and dangerous kingdom.

Ralph thought he was an ordinary kid, just trying to become the junior fencing champion in his state. Shortly after being chased into Norwaeja he learns of the prophecy declaring him the warrior that will lead the Great Army into battle against Apep, the evil one.

Epic battles against Trolls, dangerous treks through kingdoms, and one pesky, egotistical meerkat will pit friend against friend while Ralph discovers just who he really is and what he is capable of achieving in a world that he is not a part of. Or is he?
