Bullying is one of those topics  discussed all the time but unfortunately, still exists in our society. Change is happening but for those who are victims of bullies, it isn’t happening fast enough. Like Dan, I know all too well how destructive,  how hurtful words and actions can be to one’s self-esteem.

Dan wrote in A Day Like No Other chronicling his personal experiences in a very difficult situation with amazing courage. Reading his book, I found myself saddened that this kind of behavior exists. It is deplorable that anyone would treat a fellow human being like that.

This book is an inspiring read. I hope you find it as engaging to read as I did.

Barefoot on the sand 

is it a warm place
that I dabble my toes
in the inviting water?

Say it is so, it has
been so dreary here.
I really need to escape
to a place the sun shines.

Sparkling and glimmering
crystals catch my attention
like a child discovering a
diamond or a new toy.

If only I could be barefoot
walking along the beach
every day in my real life,
I really need change.

You take my hand and away
we go to our special place
where we share our dreams
barefoot on the sand.

There are people you cross paths with in life that when you hear them speak you find yourself leaning forward because their voice is mesmeric and entertaining. At our local writing group in Langhorne, there is one writer who not only has impressive writing skills he has a public speaking voice that captivates your attention. His name is Marcus Julian Carbos, and he is the author of the upcoming book The Path to Arcadia, a military sci-fi. The tale takes place shortly with an insight of our political world and its shortcomings.  Even if the military is not your cup of tea, the story from his point of view is very engaging.

Marcus also does his take on society with his youtube videos called Society is an Illusion. He also is out there on Twitter, if you’re into the tweet world.

If you are into getting fit, he teaches Tai Chi in the local Philadelphia area for beginners to the more advanced levels.

In Marcus’s own words, “A modern day Renaissance Man, well rounded and firmly grounded, I recognize that all disciplines came from the singularity, and all are interconnected. Whether the art of rhetoric, the discipline of history or the science of astrophysics, each can be used to interweave a picture that can attract many from the outskirts while forging new paths in industry. As a problem solver, I like to get to the core of issues and believe in the evolutionary theory that all systems are emergent and should never become stagnant. But as a writer, I recognize and utilize the power of the literary and oratory. No matter the industry, no matter the group, without communication, both internally and externally, they are destined to fall. In that way, communication is a science but when utilized as an art, not only will an organization survive, it will thrive.”
