The True Meaning

A riddle to start your day… What is so fragile that when you say its name you break it?

Why is silence so powerful? It can be a very powerful way to be with another person, especially when you are troubled.

Silence stirs wisdom and seeks truth. Impulsive speaking can cause a more foolish or selfish reaction.

In English Literature the sound of silence provides readers with an abstract illustration of the scene’s atmosphere becoming heavy with emotion or understanding between characters.

There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen!

What does silence mean to you?

For me, I don’t believe you are ever truly surrounded in silence. If only you just listen.

What does silence mean to you?

I am curious about your answers. Please let me know what you think.

THE ENFIELD MONSTER

Fact or fiction?

Henry McDaniel, father of two, dismissed his children’s claim that a weird creature was lurking in their yard trying to get in. He believed it to be their active imaginations due to their age. Later that night, for him, things changed.

Henry awoke by strange scratching sounds. He grabbed a gun and a flashlight then peered out his front door. Between two rose bushes, just as his children had described, was an almost human-like body of a creature. He described it as having 3 legs, a short body, 2 little arms, and 2 pink eyes as big as flashlights.

Henry fired 4 shots that night. He was sure he had hit by the hissing noise it made, causing it to run toward a railway embankment.This creature shocked him, as it had jumped 80 ft in only 3 jumps before disappearing.

Henry reported 3 more sightings but police threatened him with jail. No one believed him. He stood adamant that his story was true, stating that if they did find it, they would find more and they would see it wasn’t a creature from this planet.

Other eyewitnesses came forward, claiming to have seen the creature, shot at it and photographed it. To this day, there is no explanation for the Enfield Monster.

This story is indeed TRUE.

Humor vs Darkness

To continue with the idea of writing with emotion, remember that if your readers are looking to identify with the characters you must make sure that they can see themselves reflected in your characters.

As far as the type of story you have chosen, some of the greatest short stories have developed around the same old topics: relationships, loss, and love.

This isn’t the important part. What? You think I’m crazy now? Nope, two stories can both deal with hardship and loss but, (here it come) they both have two different deliveries. Yes! One is dark and despondent while the other is light and humorous.

It doesn’t matter which you choose as long as your readers can identify immediately with your characters.

“IT HAS ENDED”

Hello my loves!

I present you with a hair raising story with only one clue. A piece of paper with the words “Lama’n Shud”. The meaning- It has ended.

I fell in love with this unique story as it leaves the mind open wide for interpretation.

A body of a man was found on Somerton Beach in Australia, 1948. This man was dressed to the nines. A suit, polished shoes, and his head slumped against a wall.

As is customary in searches, authorities first speculated it was a case of heart failure or poisoning. After an autopsy, no trace of poisoning was found.

The tags of his clothes had been removed, there was no wallet and the fingerprints the authorities had taken were unidentifiable. A photo was placed in the newspaper, but with no luck in identifying this man.

The rolled up piece of paper found inside a hidden pocket in his pants was from a rare book called Ruba’ya’t. Police spent months looking for this exact book, finally deciding to bury him without identification. He was embalmed to preserve him and a cast was made of the bust.

A man walked into the police station eight months later claiming g that just after the body was found he found a copy of the rare book in the back of his car which was also parked beside a building at Somerton Beach. The gentleman hadn’t given any thought until reading about it in the paper.

The book had a part of the last page torn out that matched the rolled up piece of paper found in the dead man’s pocket. Inside this book was a phone number and a strange code that still hasn’t been cracked today. The phone number led to a woman who sold the book to a man named Alfred Boxall, who is still very much alive today and still owns the copy of the rare book that he purchased.

Now I ask you, who was this man found on Somerton Beach?

INTO THE JUNGLE

Hello kiddos, grab your favorite drink and snack of your choice and embark on this wonderous tale, theories you might not of heard before, to the Lost City of Z.

The British explorer Percy Fawcett, also known as the true Indiana Jones, disappeared in Brazil. Many people believe he was killed by local tribes, but is this true? I will let you decide.

Finding the remains of delicate pottery, in the Motto Grosso region of western Brazil, convinced Percy Fawcett that beneath the jungle floor of the Amazon River basin, was evidence of civilization that had once existed. He believed that beneath the jungle floor was evidence of roadways and causeway.

Anthropologist Micheal Heckenberger, through recent finds, suggests that Fawcett may have indeed been right. There is evidence of a city and large civilization, that was home to roughly 60,000 people in 800-1600 CE, named Kuhikugu after the main archeological site of Percy Fawcett.

WOW, ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I WOULD LOVE, LOVE, LOVE TO SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS!

Back to our story…

After fighting in World War I, Fawcett returned back to the jungle in search of this lost city Z. He falls sick with fever and ends up having to shoot his horse at the place he later called “Dead Horse Camp”.

In 1925, Fawcett returns with his son Jack and Jack’s best friend, Raleigh Rimell. Also in this party were two locals, two dogs, two horses, and eight mules.

After his last communication with his wife Nina, they were not heard from again.

An explanation that has been given weight was by Swiss explorer Stephan Rattin. Ratting claimed he met Fawcett. Ratting said that Fawcett was being held captive by tribesmen, so he sets off to rescue Fawcett with two men, one being a reporter, but again, they were never heard from again.

Majority of people believed that Fawcett, Jack, and Raleigh were killed by local tribes but, no evidence or clues suggest that this is true.

A fanciful tale, when Fawcett and his son never disappeared was, that they had starved to death, been eaten by wild beasts, or were alive and living with the natives.

I ask you, is it possible that Fawcett had never intended to return to England? Was he determined to set up a commune in the jungle?

Based on Fawcetts family papers that had been kept secret, Fawcett had visions of a native goddess who drew him to the area. Many of his friends had agreed to meet him there when he set up this commune.

The major motion picture The Lost City of Z, suggests Fawcett and his son were carried off to meet their demise by cannibals.

What do you think happened? It’s a fanciful tale with many twists and turns and don’t forget theories.
