The Strings of Life by Y.A. Picker & Rand Soler – A Mat Dover and Mark Baret adventure exploring the origins of life on Earth. – Deep in the mists of time, when Earth was young, and life had not yet appeared, a probe appeared in the night-time sky, emerging from the termination of a wormhole and hovering in a low planetary orbit. Sent by a civilization now long past and forgotten, it pelted Earth’s ancient seas with its entire supply of small cannonball-sized projectiles. As each sphere sank into the Archean oceans’ murky depths, its organic payload was released into the cold salty waters, infusing Earth with life. (Purchase on Amazon)

In Search of a Path by WM House -A void doesn’t physically exist, but it is an essential part of the human psyche. Because when we look into its emptiness, we fill it with our own unique meaning. We create emotional balance from our resolution of the tension between existence and non-existence. The void is overflowing, filled with things we cannot see. Between existence and non-existence lies a continuum of being, and within this continuum, paths, previously unrecognized, unfold from the mist as we each walk along our journey in life. Reflections and meditations on life’s journey are examined in the context of the Tao Te Ching. (Purchase from Amazon)
