Night Sky

Night Sky – Every time I look up at the stars in the night sky, it feels like a new adventure. The one thing that is constant though, is my childlike wonder of the faraway stars from my wonder years of growing up. My life now has spanned 60 plus years, but on nights such as this, when I stare at the stars, I revert to being 10 years old again, camping out in the backyard with my best friend. The stars in the night sky above give me the peace to be myself at any moment in my life. I can be driving alone at night, walking a wilderness path, kissing my gal in the moonlight. I look up and I am 10 years old again. Even though there are so many stars in the night sky, and they look so close to one another. My adult mind tells me they are light years apart. My 10-year-old heart tells me all I have to do is reach out and scoop all the glitter up in my hands, swirl the stars together so they can feel the warmth of each other. Above and beyond in the night skies are the answers to all the mystery, of how our lives, and our world began—and how it will end. Every night, each new adventure, it’s like nothing ever stops happening.

One of my tales on the NEW Kindle Vella: 
The Tartarus Variant: 
2019 saw the spread of the Coronavirus across the world. Then Coronavirus mutated into a different variant. Then variants such as Delta, Omicron, and then 10 other variants quickly engulfed the planet. In the year 2041, the 13th variant Tartarus became dominant. The world’s infrastructure finally collapsed – setting what remained of humanity on the brink of extinction. This was a one-man, one-dog, and one-horse’s story of survival, until Dixon Mateo rescued a girl named Alba Jesse.
One of my tales on the NEW Kindle Vella: 
Rocky Mountain Moonshiner:
In 1922, all Trent Laneetee, also known as the Crow, wanted to do was support his family. Once the state of Colorado went dry during prohibition, the most profitable way to do that was to sell his own whiskey. As Trent’s operation got larger, his business drew the attention of the Denver Mafia. They gave Laneetee an ultimatum of sharing his business and profits with the Denver Mafia or going to war with them. What the gangsters from Denver did not know – was you did not threaten Trent Laneetee.

    I love to watch the sky at night and see all the stars – they never cease to amaze me. There is a distant loneliness yet profound beauty way up there. I enjoyed reading your memoir, Kurt. You have summoned up a nostalgic beauty in great imagery. Well done.

    So well expressed, that feeling of looking up at the night sky and reverting to childhood thoughts and wonder. I see it in my grandchildren’s faces and I feel it in my heart still.

    You have done so many things and written a great variety – interesting to read all about that too.
