Dear Reader

Dear Reader,

Today we are going to take a brief break from H.P. Lovecraft, and his evil things coming from the sea with the hateful eyes of primordial gods staring down upon us with disdain and violence. I do believe there is enough doom and gloom in the world at the moment, so I'd rather share inspirational words today, I hope you all don't mind.


"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

― Frank Herbert, Dune


A friend said this quote from the Sci-Fi masterpiece, "Dune" to me yesterday, I thought I'd share it with you, my dear Reader. Caution is important and danger is real, panic is pointless and fear is a phantom that hides inside your mind.

Be resolute, be strong, be mindful and aware.

Stay filled with love and try your hardest to believe in all the beautiful things still to come when we make it past this dilemma as a global community.

Try to be thankful we live in this wonderful age of connectivity so that even if we must spend time away from those we cherish and adore we can still call. We can still message, and video chat. And most importantly we can all rally together and make the right choices as educated individuals. Call me naive, but I can't help thinking that during this time of turmoil, we will continue to see people do strange and wonderful things to help each other on personal levels and more so to help man kind on medical, technological and environmental levels.


I leave you, for now, dear Reader with a few words from the magnificent John Lennon, "Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given, never forgotten, never let it disappear."


Thanks for reading and do wash your hands.
