The title, people, read the title!
Regular updates every Monday. Other than that, whenever I want.
At the dawn of the third decade of the 21st century, the existence of humankind has become highly perilous. We are cutting down our forests, exhausting our fresh water aquifers, and losing our vital top soils. We are stripping the life from our oceans and replacing it with hundreds of millions of tons of plastic waste. We are flooding our environment with toxic industrial chemicals. Our pollution is driving climate change that causes heat waves, droughts, and wild fires that shred the fabric of life on the continents. And we are bringing new generations into the world, millions who require access to the resources of a dignified existence. The scope and breadth of the threats to life are increasing day after day. This is not a sustainable mode of development.The root cause of our ills stems from a mistaken way of thinking. What exactly does this mean? it means that we have been thinking of ourselves mainly as material beings, while denying our spiritual nature. Because we think that we exist as material beings and nothing more, we place first importance on protecting our bodies from harm and prolonging our material existence. Our spiritual nature, if considered at all, is treated as a secondary aspect of our physical being—something not to be taken seriously. To us, the only things that matter are the phenomena that appear in the material world—things that can be seen, or heard, or touched, or measured, but we know that our senses deceive us, the senses are a construction of the brain. What we consider a real world is an illusion. The domination of the positivist and materialist thought leads to irrationality and destruction.Yet where has this approach led us? Has it brought us a sense of happiness and fulfillment? Rather than living each day in a spirit of joyful cooperation, with our hearts filled with bright hope and happy anticipation, we have isolated ourselves from others and viewed them as rivals or enemies. Our thoughts are flooded with suspicion, fear and greed, leading to an endless cycle of war, poverty, starvation, and environmental destruction. Unless we wake up soon and pay attention to our spiritual nature, there will be no future for humanity on Earth.Words are life. Words are light. Words are power. Words are energy. Words are truth. Words can enliven and words can also kill. Words can give hope, or plunge us into despair. People use words to build peace, and use words to make war. Words can create walls between cultures, religions, and nations. And words can also build bridges. The existence of an individual, a family, a community, a country, and our planet is being led to good or to evil through the power of the words we speak. The words we speak are responsible for everything that happens in this world. We, therefore, must be responsible for the words we speak. On behalf of future generations, I hope that each of us will do all we can to speak only bright, light-filled words, so that one day, our descendants will be born into a world filled with light. There is no time to lose. Starting at this very moment, I hope all of us will take a close look at the words we have been using and make constant efforts to fill them with brightness.No one is going to change our lives for us. No one is going to change the world for us. It is time for each of us to recognize the prodigious, creative power that is unleashed by each word we speak, and to consciously speak only words filled with gratitude, encouragement, and good intention. From this moment forward, let us choose words that resonate with love and forgiveness for ourselves and others. We can certainly do it if we take just one step forward. One step at a time, one word at a time, we can uproot the germs of tragedy and of isolation in our consciousness and convert them into waves of happiness and conciliation. For the sake of ourselves, for the sake of Mother Earth, and for the sake of future generations, let us use words that contribute to the positive evolution of humankind on Earth.
Treasures come in so many ways:The sun that lights the cloudy days,a rose that blooms within an hour.a baby that staring with a wandering gaze,a dolphin’s dance on ocean waves,a sky full of snowflakes of rarest form,a beautiful white and peaceful dove.We’re all part of that magical dustwhich fills our soul with light.
Nor angel, nor man, nor brute,Nor body, mind, nor he nor she,Before the sun, the moon, the earth,Before the stars or comets free,Before even time has had its birthand the Causation’s law,there was the immortal dream of lovethat embraced everything.
During a nice and warm day of May, sudden attacks happen all around Europe under the name Anonymous.
Based on the quote "Ideas cannot be destroyed even if idealists are,"Anonymous threatens Europe, saying that they will transform the continent into a replica of Botticelli's Mappa del Inferno.
With numerous people dying for a cause they may not even be aware of, with politicians blaming each other and a group of people who cause chaos for a so called righteous belief, a group of people are chosen to combat Anonymous.
A detective with angry management issues, an Art teacher who's relying on drugs to relax his brain and a Psychologist who might be the reason behind Anonymous; these three are the only ones who have a chance at figuring the situation out and stopping Anonymous from causing more damage in Europe.
This is where I'll be posting my art for Ghostwriter, my original story.
Everything is posted on my Insta/Tumblr, as well as my non-Ghostwriter-related stuff so feel free to check that out here: https://linktr.ee/Nor5tar
May contain some spoilers, I'll try to keep it minimal, but anything that I've already written into Ghostwriter is fair game.
Warning: Some of my art contains blood and slight gore(it's a fantasy story, these things happen)
Going to be posting the artwork here for the second story of Ghostwriter.
Now, there is going to be the small spoiler for the end of the first book, but it kind of makes sense when realizing that the concept for the series is world jumping.
So spoilers below!
So the spoiler is that Kage ends up on a different world, one called Mirac.
On Mirac, the magic system is known as Fillamentia.
Magic in Mirac comes from the energy produced by living organisms. While animals and plants do produce some magic energy, it is so negligible it is rarely used.
As humans' magical energy is produced, it takes the form of head hair, meaning their head hair is solid magical energy.
When one uses magic, their hair disintegrates from the tips, and different hair colours allow for different uses of magic.
A person's hair colour is based on their personality, for example, someone who acts on emotion would have bright red hair, while someone who is usually more logical would have blue hair.
There's a whole system for what kind of magic each colour has, as well as vivid hair versus light or dark hair, and the exceptions for black and white👀
May post more about that in here later.
Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Complete audio version of this book is now available on it, for those who struggle to read poems, or for those who prefer it this way, or even both ways.
The end is nigh, making Death a very busy man. And that's too bad because he's kind of stupid. Luckily, he's got Cheron, a deadpan heroine who just so happens to be immortal. Watch as they reap souls, fall in love, and destroy the universe. Then watch them do it all over again.
