A heart develops with no ego . Let us meet in that place.
The Novel - Goodbye Mr. Now And Forever
The above novel took four years to complete. Maybe I am too much of a perfectionist, but I had to get it right. There was a long segment here on this blog as a big promotion that was deleted minutes ago, to write this shorter version. Rather than bore readers with a long sales pitch, I will give you the basic information.
The fiction novel is a 134,000 word adventure that begins in modern times, and takes the reader back in time to a land called Covendar. Purchase it at https://smashwords.com/books/view/1025769 as an Ebook.
My niece told me I am a great writer. A good friend said it will never win the Pulitzer. Ha! Ha! Take the journey.
The T.L. Willis Vault Products
I joined a merchant/publisher company called SHAREASALE to discover that all the products the merchants wanted me to sell as an affiliate were overpriced. Also, the commissions those merchants offered to pay me for sales were too low. I won't offer overpriced products to my website visitors or waste their time. Anyone can place a lot of junk products on a website. Products found on The T.L. Willis Vault will be top quality at the lowest prices I can find. It will take longer to develop the products page here, but that's okay.
The Resources Page
Bookmark the page or link to it. There is too much information to digest in an hour, day or week. I enjoy going back to that page in my free time to explore those links.
There will be more to come on this blog, but I should not spend all my time writing here today. Thanks for reading these first blog posts, and special thanks to my website visitors.
The main thing that has caused me trouble in starting an internet business is locating a decent web host . (1) Get a host in your own country that at least has 24/7 help ticket support. A host with toll free telephone support is almost impossible to find . (2) The latest trend for the web hosting companies is to double or triple the price when you renew! Beware of that! (3) I'm not a tech genius but you would think that site builders would be simple and easy to use in this century. Computer engineers build them and expect the average citizen to walk on through with no problem . Is technology going backwards only to make our lives more complicated? Ask for the site builder demo and test it before making a purchase. You may hate it ! (4) Many hosts overcharge for domain names. Some hosts say it is free hosting and then charge as much as $17 for a domain name to get that free hosting. Is a free domain included in the hosting plan? Beware! (5) Watch out for all the addons when checking out and paying your host. Most of those extras, the average internet business owner doesn't need. Research all the extras they want to charge you for at check out ! (6) Can you pay by the month? Test a hosting plan for a month before you float a bundle of cash into their bank account! I hope I can save a few people a few dollars and lots of headache by writing this post.
A Factory Products Page is New On Site
I spoke with the sales manager of a large company in China this evening and received permission to work with the company as their factory representative. They construct steel structure buildings of any size, and have the engineering skills to do so. This will be the first company represented on the factory products page of The T.L. Willis Vault.
Frank Visits Doc Psych the Psychologist
Doc / I need to ask you some questions for my records
Frank / Okay
Doc / Are you a member of a church or bowling league?
Frank / No !
Doc / Have you ever watched cartoons while eating sushi ?
Frank / No !
Doc / Do you like to run thru your neighborhood naked at night pretending you are Tarzan ?
Frank / No !
Doc / Have you ever seen a werewolf carrying a Chinese menu ?
Frank / No !
Doc / Do you ever feel like you are turning Japanese?
Frank / No !
Doc/ Did you ever own a pigeon ?
Frank / No !
Doc / Are you afraid of chickens ?
Frank / I wouldn't say afraid, but I never liked to touch birds.
Doc / Why did you make an appointment to see me ?
Frank / I don't know ! I don't know anything anymore !
Doc / I would suggest you read a book called " The Teachings of Peter Pumpkin Head and Humptey Dumptey". The book explains why you are here, why you are there, and why you are everywhere else.
Frank / Sounds like a good read . Maybe I'll finally know something .
Doc / Pay the secretary on the way out. Tell her to schedule you an appointment for next month. Don't worry about a thing. We'll figure it all out !
Newton Visits A Psychologist (Doc Psych)
Doc / What brought you into the office Newton?
Newton / I can't figure out what is wrong with me.
Doc / Why do you think something is wrong?
Newton / I have been attending a church near my home for the last year. The preacher always tells everyone we can't be perfect like Jesus, because we have to many things wrong with us.
Doc / What do you think is wrong with you?
Newton / Nothing, but after hearing that week after week I began to wonder.
Doc / I council many who are in some kind of belief system cult. Religions are cults . Lose the Sunday meetings sitting in the pew, and get out in the fresh air.
Newton / Where the hell do I go to get fresh air these days? Everything is burning up.
Doc / That's right ! You may be shit out of luck .
Newton / With the virus going around this past year, I don't enjoy going anywhere. A person could choke to death in one of those masks.
Doc / The cavemen certainly had it better than us. All they had to do was kill something for dinner. There were no elections . Whoever swung the club with the most clout was the leader of the clan!
Newton / You are exactly right . We are a society of sissies who run to a voting both for leadership.
Doc / I don't want to be elected to do anything. You should see the pathetic losers who pay me to make them feel better.
Newton / What do you tell them ? I can't tell them to put a gun to their head or I would . I would also lose a lot of money. Some of my patients have been seeing me for over five years.
Newton / You must have lots of cash.
Doc / No ! I'm the great American consumer . I go out and buy shit I don't even need .
Newton / WOW ! How long do I have to go to school to become a psychologist?
Doc / Don't go that route ? Most of the crap taught in the college courses is nonsense. You might consider being a guru . All you have to do is smile and act like you know everything. Get yourself a large room and put down some mats for people to sit on, and you are an instant Zen master. Just keep smiling.
Newton / I guess all cults may not be so bad if they rake
in the cash . I'll read up on the Zen .
Doc / Now you've got it Newton ! In America money talks and bullshit walks. I do feel sorry for those who live under a freeway overpass in a tent . They are the victims of a cruel society. However, there is always the option to go somewhere, anywhere, where it is more peaceful.

The Changes Taking Place Where I Live /
I do meditation and physical labor on the grounds each day. By doing those two things, my mind is not too active watching the past or looking toward the future. In eastern thought the watching of the past or looking toward the future is called monkey mind. Sunday morning when waking and drinking a first cup of coffee, I caught myself thinking about future changes in living with my family here on my property that I have been told are going to take place. While sipping the coffee, I suddenly realized that I was sitting there watching the future. My mind became at ease when I stopped thinking about the future and told myself that I must live in the present day. It was a relief to come back to the now and enjoy the coffee. Living each day without looking forward is not so easy, but going with the flow of each day brings calm. I am not writing this as a lesson to anyone. I write these words as a bookmark in my life.
