Third Country


The Kindle Scout campaign for “THIRD COUNTRY” has launched! Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book receives a publishing contract. I need your support more than ever! It’s free. All you need to do is just NOMINATE ME : ) I have been working on this for years, though. I have ventured across three continents, finding odd jobs to survive. From France to Australia, I have been helping my people, and I have also made a lot of sacrifices. Of course, you don’t have to do anything. Read the introduction and, if you disagree with any of it, it’s okay. We can agree to disagree. But lease remember: Just one of your CLICKS could decide my fate. Thank you, God bless!


LIKE WHAT YOU DO. DO WHAT YOU LIKE…How many of us are that lucky today? Most people are happy to have a job and pay a big stack of bills. There goes your dignity and integrity. It’s about caring through good times and bad, but caring for what and who? Your significant one that is not happy with his wage-slaving schedule? He or she should have studied more to have a better job. What is a better job? A doctor, a lawyer, a pharmacist, a car dealer, an engineer, a business analyst, an artist, a Buddhist? Oh, sorry…I forgot that Buddhist is not a job—it’s a belief, a lifestyle, religion? So what do you believe in? Is your nature founded in Judeo-Christian values, or satanic values, or no values at all? If you believe in love, friendship, and decency—are those universal values, or custom made, based upon your social status, which again loops back to the values mentioned above? So then, whoever loops the loop, he’s home free? Ah, another one of those simple four-letter words that shrink our emotions into love, fuck, free…golf, anyone? See, looping the loop brought me to…golf. What is all that about—chasing a ball with a stick across the acres of neatly combed green grass of home? How many people don’t have a luxury to own a backyard, because of all those fields of green reserved for the stick & ball chasers? And that would be bearable, almost, had they not chased profit at the same time. They are not just after money—they are after the money that makes more money. So that they can keep chasing their hard balls with a stick, while Joe Blow smokes a cigarette on a diminished designated little patio, a hard day’s night, before he gets up and does it again…because he has a dream. He is a dignified steel worker. The world needs more steel. And concrete. Well, maybe those hardball chasers should envision the possibility of the green fields disappearing altogether…


“This story, once we are caught up in the thing written in words both poetic and philosophic, entwined in music and bad luck with women, surviving the elements of seasonal changes in a country maladapted to same – this story becomes a memoir, possibly. But then we must ask, could anything so rich in descriptive prose and so completely without self pity when a little self pity would be more than appropriate – could this have happened?” GRADY HARP

My Inventions by Nikola Tesla

Everyone should read this book! Tesla is not only a great inventor…he is also one of the greatest thinkers and an amazing writer, too.
“The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness thru all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways.”
Almost a century later…does it ring a bell?
Samantha Hunt has fabulously explained it in a nut-shell, “It was difficult for a vanilla American public, reeling from war, to lionize a foreign eccentric…”
An eccentric that “is responsible for our modern electrical system,” without which we wouldn’t even be able to surf the net, let alone do other “insignificant” things like watching TV, making a phone-call…oops, he’s responsible for the phone and the radio, too!
And, Mr. Kevin Kelly, if by “please don’t read this book if you wish to remain normal” you consider our every day “normalcy” that turns us into idiots on a regular basis then, by all means, I salute you!

 It’s a long way to go.

You don’t want to be tired.

You need to look decent upon meeting your Maker.

You don’t want to be hangover or something.

You are to be of good cheer.

He doesn’t need to see anybody corky, or grumpy.

Don’t complain too much.

What’s done is done…

You were told many a time you were to go one day.

When the day comes, don’t fear it.

It’s what you’ve been waiting for all along.

You were trained for it like an astronaut.

Are you going to be a bad one?

Might as well not go then.

Not yet.

You got nothing to show for it.

Spare yourself the trouble.

Better drive around the corner toward the Ross Island Bridge.

At the end of the exit lane stands a tall, old guy in a red jacket, waving at the line of

vehicles coming at him and passing…
