The Very Best of A FORCE OF NATURE!


Hello, all you lovely peeps!
So. Tomorrow is kind of a huge day and it’s going to be hectic but that is the day that this five day hiatus begins. #FP is going to run normally, please don’t worry about that (I’m way too much of an addict to let it go) so send ‘em #FP’s thick and fast on Friday, cos’ I’ll be there for them!
I will not however, be replying to any emails regarding #ForTheLoveofLove until the 7th, when I come back.
Don’t worry, nothing bad is happening, we’re just going to go and change our lives a little.
Change can be good!
True to my word, the fundraiser has been deleted, and I want to thank you all a thousand times and a thousand times again for all you have done for us. Sometimes I have words, and sometimes I don’t that fully describe how grateful I am for the help you have given, for all the kindness we’ve been shown.
I will never forget it.
I promise you that.
The deadline for #ForTheLoveofLove has been extended until the 7th, when this hiatus is over and everything will resume again after that. This time away serves a bigger purpose in our lives, so it’s a necessary break.
There’s still time to send your words, guys. Still time to change my family’s lives, such as we have come to know it …
Anyway, this foreword cannot be too extensive as I am running out of time that I need to spend at home, with my family and get things ready for a new world ahead, so, as I like saying so much, onto the #FP’s!
The theme last week was A Force of Nature, which I admit, was inspired by you guys, a force of nature with your beautiful words and everything you do that blows me away … I mean, you’d think there’d be a pattern of familiarity by now, but every week, it’s like sitting down and down #FP again for the very first time.
The gift that keeps on giving!
And now, enough of my ramblings!
Please enjoy The Very Best of A Force Of Nature!

The Very Best of GHOST STORIES part 1!


This week, month and indeed, year has just run away from me.
I do not remember what day it is anymore, much less what time I’m supposed to be doing certain things.
Keeping it together is hard, man. Really, really hard.
Anyway … here we stand. For better or for worse, we stand in more or less one piece.
The last stretch of the Fundraiser on is coming to an end, because … in all honesty, the guilt I have for asking for so much is killing me slowly, and I need to do more work here at home to make up for what we’ve lost in medical bills.
This last stretch means that I need to reach that total of $2,000. So that I can buy time to find work here, or to get ahead in the projects I have lined up that would help financially.
We have, at the time of writing this, $1,223. We have approximately $777 to go before I let this fundraiser go and let it rest.
I want to close it on Monday.
And if between then and now, if there is any way that you can help, my family and I would be forever indebted to you. In these last days especially, as the doctors and hospitals are demanding their fees, and we do not even have enough money to buy more than a bag of sweet potatoes for the rest of the week.
In any case, I’ve written a full letter about it here, if you’d like to read it.
Now to the #FP’s of last week!
The theme was Ghost Stories … the supernatural vibe was inspired by my sister, who is, indeed, a mega fan of the show and the theme was like #FP’s birthday present to her.
Needless to say, the creepy and phenomenal #FP’s we saw that day was a birthday present not even Vicky could believe, and it was the BEST THING EVER to sit and read some of the best ones out to her.
These GRAY Girls are huge fans of this theme and all of you!
So, without further ado, here’s to you … and the Very Best of Ghost Stories Part 1!

Beyond whistling pines
A tangible ghost preys
On wilted lovers
A spectre rises from
Misty shadows
Spelling doom for
The star crossed

By roaming with ghosts
Venom cures venom
Evil befriends evil
Now I scare them all
Who scared me once

Those ideas, thoughts & memories that we manage to write down.
They don’t die. Their ghosts live in the margins, giving the words life.

Sam stood to inherit a fortune. While he would never harm his parents
directly, he didn’t feel compelled to warn them of the gas leak. #FP

I tell myself
All begin

When I met Death, she sat on the hood of my car, wearing jeans & a
pink tank top, snapping her gum behind a Hollywood smile. #FP

Childhood memories
Become ghost stories, rattling
Her mind’s empty cage

Twisted sisters
love & hate
Wearing masks
Deep down
They are
passionate twins
Of survival
