New project in the works

Well as you all know, I’ve been working hard in my job at the moment and when I do get a chance, I’m working on FineTuning347. But that’s not all, at the same time I been speaking with a friend and she has agreed to help out on a new project. To be honest it will be a very small thing and nothing will get shown until a later this year! As of now, all I can say is … It’s original, it’s will be story based and will hopefully work out! Anyway I need to get going for another meeting but hope you’re all okay and everything is fine!

The Journey by Mary Oliver

This is a really moving poem I was given by someone and to me it has a powerful feeling behind it. Maybe she herself was facing depression and this helped her out? I don’t know but here it is.

“One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice–
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
‘Mend my life!’
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognised as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do–
determined to save
the only life you could save.”

Mary Oliver

Reading comics

I haven’t read any books in a long while now, years maybe. So I had a look at a few that might peak my interest back into what has been happening since I last read one. I even went back and reread some of the old ones I used to own and it made realise how cool the stories used to be. At the moment though I starting to read Spider-Man: Reign which is a very … Unusual one. It’s been said it was one of the worst story lines ever written because of the plot. I won’t go to deep into it but so far seeing Peter Parker as a old man not been Spidey again makes a change. Most of the time in the comic book world we never really see them age very much. While it is only four issues long, I’m hoping it does come with a decent ending and enough for me to feel for him. Apart from Reign I’ll be heading back to the Ultimate Universe Marvel created. Last time I was reading it there was a huge crisis going on that involved everyone to stand together. I then started thinking why did I stop buying comics? The price of some of them is a bit too steep now and I won’t deny, most of the time it annoyed me when you had to multiple issues of different comics to understand what’s going on. Sigh for now I’ll carry on borrowing my friends books now and then. If anyone has any good suggestions on which one I should read next, please let me know!
