” I can have no fear of having to suffer for the study of nature and the search for truth, or believe that those will be better off in a future state who have lived in the belief of doctrines inculcated from childhood, and which are to them rather a matter of blind faith than intelligent conviction.” -Alfred Russell Wallace

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

“I have sometimes thought that, in order to be a good minister, it was necessary to leave the ministry. The profession is antiquated. In an altered age, we worship in the dead forms of our forefathers.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“No Eternal Reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn”-Jim Morrison

End 2 Begin

This post is dedicated to my 34th year. The end of a year that has been filled with many highs and some lows. I am ending it by watching a movie called Rabbit Hole. It is about a couple dealing with the loss of their 4 year old son. Last night I had a dream that was so real I found my self jumping out of my bed to save my child from drowning. Debbie was giving Ella a bath and all of the sudden I heard a scream, “DADDY” and it was Debbie screaming for me to get our baby who had slipped out of her hands because of a tidal wave. It was so vivid I felt my heart pounding as I tried to lay down and convince myself that it was only a dream. Dreams have always been a mystery to me and I find them difficult to interpret. I cannot imagine losing one of my children to the inevitable fate called death. In my dream I felt loss of a child and much like the movie I am watching it seems that their is no other grief more difficult to experience during our mortality. As I am thinking of the subject my thoughts turn to Joseph Smith, jr. and his wife Emma. My little Ella is only nine months old and losing her would cause me to question God like never before. For a young father as Joseph was and losing his children the way he did then he had to have perfect knowledge. I am really trying to believe his story like when I was a youth but the man I have become has changed that simple belief. The hours now fade as I contemplate my life and the direction I am going. I do feel some higher power guiding me and to that extent I give thanks. My goals are not so far out of reach and the hours I am giving to my Kookie Empire have taken me away from my writings. As I began this new year I am looking forward to blogging about each day of my 35th year so that I may track the progress of my goals. I will begin the process of self mastery in three categories; Physical, Financial, and Spiritual. I look forward to a year of great success.

Cheers to the Future!

My last entry was two months ago and I was preaching from my soapbox about the importance of writing yet that is sixty days of living and very little writing. The only writing I do consistently is on the famous website community Facebook which has a captive audience of over 500 million users. I will do what one of my favorite comedians did this last year and take all those writings and make a book. That man is Dennis Leary, who I forgot to mention in my last post. His reflections on society I found strikingly familiar and could relate more to than most of the other books I have read from living authors.

It has been a year since I began a chapter of my life that ended what I like to call the Brown years. The last twelve months have given me great insight on myself as well as my family. I almost followed the trend of most married couples these days and ended my marriage of twelve years. This was a very difficult time in my life and I can see the strain it has caused my family. Thankfully we are on the road to recovery and our prospects are looking good. Now I can focus on writing and creating a better world for my family.

These are a few of the projects I want to complete in the next five years.

1-Write a movie and complete it with my brother.

2-Finish my scripts that consist of: Ella, Coach, The Days of Hyrum, Conflicted, and The Stories of a Farm Boy and a Teacher.

3-Finish my book: Soul Stripping or A Faith in Crisis.

4-Create my Kookie Empire.

5-Start a band.

I will be busy these next five years. Wish me luck!
