All That Glitters Collaboration

Not all that glitters is gold.

Not all that has age is old.

Not all that is bright is wise.

Not all that blinds you affects your eyes.


Remember that you shall reap what you sow.

Good plans by evil means never grow.


Not all that is sudden is a surprise.

Not all who enforce laws are above lies.

Not all that is dark is black.

Any time you waste you can never get back.


Not all that matters is spoken.

Not all that shatters is broken.

Not all that is dark is hidden.

Not all that is thought is written.


Forget where you have been and gone.

The past is not a road to walk on.


Not all that is expected will be.

Not all that are unchained are free.

Not all that is shining is light.

Every wrong that is avoided is right.

Fire and Ice

Foreword . . .

Many moons ago I realized the power of words and how they can accurately describe the nuances of emotion. They can take a person to the highest highs, and just as easily, that person can plummet into nothingness…. just by words. It is fascinating how perception and illusion rule our lives. What others fail to see is that for some, once the words are out there… the bleeding stops a little bit more… Those words are just part of us…And that is the beauty of it.

Fire and Ice is a collection of connections based on perceptions. It is person after person, reading, relating, and then reaching out to others through words. Connection…  is really what it is all about that.

I am honored to invite you inside the minds of people just like you. All their hopes, dreams, and disasters are here within the pages of this book.
