Face Book Post's

out of every possible combination of words there are in the world, there are three that bring such joy to who ever hears them, that although they may be said in different languages , they are universally accepted as what they are , an invitation, these three words are, " I LOVE YOU " and will be accepted any where, any time.

winds blow, children cry, shutters slam on abandoned buildings. winds cry, children listen while empty houses shudder. children shudder while the wind blows through their empty crying.

while the surface of a body of water might be smooth , and clear , and might even reflect what it is shown, it is still only the surface , and can't give , what isn't sought after                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
belief in ones self is the start to believing in something bigger than ones self.
what in life , makes us look at our selves as though we are the ones who had a hand in creating anything around us, when deep down either we know or just wont except the fact that we are in the palm of the hand who guides us .
if finding means looking and looking means curiosity and curiosity killed the cat i guess i'm glad i have only one life and not nine , because i'd hate to be killed just for being curious
bright sunlight burns,where its light settles on the road. etching waves like a rushing tide,not along the horizon towards the shallows, but skyward towards the everlasting heavens.
broad days that shine,sheltered inside the day cannot be. shining against eyes ,the blurred vision of life is present,catching a glimpse takes only a glance, but looking slows. long, slow warm summer days lead to peace, winters cold embrace ,is only to close
So maybe I needed to tell every one that Little Paddle is a children's story. A child of about 10 and above could read this book and understand it all, mostly , I like the idea of a parent reading this book to their child or children. The story is a beautiful thing, about a Platypus family that starts off with just Momma and Poppa wanting a family. So what does that entail ?  Two loving Platypus , check. A Home for them to start, check. Children, on their way. Love for their children, check, even if  their children are special needs ? Check. If you have children, and would like them to read , this is a good book for them to start with, even below a 10 year old would need just a little help and with the illustrations the story does come to life. Lulu.com has this book as an eBook and it does not have the illustrations in it, if that is a cause for not getting the book, post something to me and I can find a way to get some illustrations to you, you can see them all in order on my blog, littlepaddle.com. I hope you will consider this, because I know children will like this story very much. 
  So now if you are into an action adventure with a Hero, of course. Demons, A God that was trapped by the Demon in a Crystal Cave . A Witch that seduced a Knight years before and now the young man the Knight is bringing to the Crystal Cave island is his son and the knight does not know it, yet. Much more , a fast paced read for young and old alike, if that kind of book is interesting to you please post so and I will post the beginning of the book to see if you interest is peaked.
thank you, THE VWRITER
Okay, maybe it works this way , from my blog to FB, I sent you off with out the skills or knowledge that just might have helped you become something besides just another post.

So there is a happy place where all good thought go, I have finally got it together, all the pictures, starting with the Cover and progressing through every picture of the book. Along with the picture is a caption and a small sentence or two ( yes some are more than that ) telling a piece of the story. I do hope you like it, it took some time and relearning my brain, I think my brain needs a new pan. With help from Pat I was able to correct the out of order pictures , he has been totally significant in getting this whole operation going, without his help I would be saying, Hey !  A blog would be great for my book and other post's , and there it would have stood alone in the dark waiting for sun light to grow, so Pat , you are the sun light that made my garden grow, thanks so much, now all I have to do is get a million followers and every thing will fall in place.
Well leave it to me to it all backwards, that is me to a tee, but I plead, there's nothing up my sleeve except my need to give rather than receive, so with that in hand I have a plan. I will open my mind and explore this backward wrong , take a hit off my bong and let someone else ,  rescue me , because they are in the know. Waxing poetic is not my forte so early in the morning, but it comes with a warning, don't try this at home or on a phone, because at times you feel so alone even if you have a warm and loving home. So I ask for a prayer before I throw this computer down the stair because I don't think its very fair , all I want to do is share because I really, really care.

The Cover to Little Paddle the Platypus and his First Day Outing Adventure.

So I am finally at the point where I am going to post pictures of my book. They will be in the order of the corresponding story, starting with this picture. The Cover. Here are Momma and Poppa at the beginning. Thinking about the family they would have and the home they would live in. Sunset Rock , which they are sitting on and just in front of Sunset Rock is Old Father Oak, who fell so long ago that only Mr. Owl, the oldest of Sunset Rock animals could remember the terrible storm , with such great winds, that it toppled Old Father Oak, where Momma and Poppa have found the perfect place to make a home and hopefully , one day to build a family to care for and love.

Momma and Poppa now have the family they have waited for.

Now, Momma and Poppa have the family they have wanted, they are now, proud parents, ready to give the seven unhatched eggs all the love they both have inside them. Once the eggs are all hatched, Momma will move her children, her little Platypus family into Father Oak, their new home, while Poppa goes off to find food for Momma and something special for the mother of his children.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

All seven were born but two were special, Lily and Little Paddle

Now all Momma's children have made it out of their shells and into their new home. All seven have a good start and are healthy. All, except for the very last egg to hatch, lily, the only girl platypus. Just before she hatched, Little Paddle hatched and Momma saw the he had such small paddle's for a Platypus, so it was decided that would be his name. All his other brothers and even Lily have paddle's that are appropriate for them, even if Lily was much smaller than Momma would have liked. She was not as active as or moving around as her other siblings. Momma and Poppa just looked at each other as Momma held Lily, so very small for this world. Both Lily's parents knew she would need the best of them and what Nature could provide, to help her gain her strength and make it through the next few weeks, when it is most important for little Platypus. Names will come later, usually naming day was after the first month when it was certain the children would grow to be an adult, but in cases like Lily and Little Paddle, they were names on their day of birth and given a bit more attention for the first month or however long it was.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Little Paddle wins the First Day Outing

Time has gone by and now even Lily was as healthy as she would ever be and Little Paddle has shone a special gift that no other Platypus or any other animal family in Sunset Rock has ever seen. Little Paddle has the Second Sight. Little Paddle is to young to fully understand it all but he is getting an idea of how it works. This is what helped him win the First Day Outing Test. Little Paddle was healthy and as able as any of his other brothers, his sister Lily was another thing, he was always found with Lily telling her stories of outside and making it seem to come alive for her. Every one in the family made it known that Lily was loved and cared for, but now it was Little Paddles time for his First Day Outing Adventure, and what an adventure it will be                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Little Paddle has won the First Day Outing Adventure

Little Paddle had won the First Day Outing Adventure . Now that he was actually outside, all his thoughts while learning and listening to Momma are more wonderful and beautiful than he could have ever imagined. He was taking everything in and seeing it as he remembered from lessons, now as he was experiencing the outside world, Mommas words and songs were truly coming to life.                                                                                                                                                                               

Little Paddle ask's Poppa for a very big favor

Everything is so exciting, meeting new friends, experiencing water for the very first time, was enough for even a Platypus with , " Second Sight " to make his heart beat a little faster and forget to get a present for Lily. Asking Poppa if he could go back and see Mr. Beaver for just a moment, he said to Poppa, " it is a very big favor ".                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Little Paddle tries to help but gets caught and trapped

Little Paddle was enjoying everything so much, he had stopped for a moment to think of his family back at Father Oak , maybe a party when he and Poppa got back from his First Day Outing, which by now was certainly an adventure, and a smile came to his face. Poppa was watching Little Paddle, seeing a smile come to his face, he stepped forward to come to Little Paddle and saw something he hoped he would never see in Sunset Rock, Upright's ! Little Paddle saw them too !  Even as young as Little Paddle was he knew he is the son of an Elder Platypus and must think of what to do, he must take action. Little Paddle will make the Upright's follow him so Poppa and the Beaver family will be safe. Going a bit further than he should he was certain that he was helping, but no sooner than getting a bit further, Slam ! He was caught in an Upright trap.                                                                                                                                                           

Poppa must find out what has happened to Little Paddle

Poppa did not know that the Upright's had Little Paddle, he has no idea what will happen to Little Paddle if he does not find him, he must find out. While searching around the area where he last saw Little Paddle he met a Turtle family and found out that indeed the Uprights have Little Paddle.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Poppa returns home to give Lily her present and then tell the family the Upright's have Little Paddle

What could be worse, Poppa knew the Upright's have Little Paddle. He must go home and then tell his family that the Upright's have Little Paddle and he does not know why or what they will do to Little Paddle. Then he must give Lily the present Little Paddle thoughtfully asked Mr. Beaver for help in creating her present. Poppa was worried what Momma would think of him, knowing he allowed Little Paddle to be caught by the Upright's and now maybe the rest of Sunset Rock was in trouble.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Poppa returns to Mr. Beavers Den to tell the bad news

Poppa knew he must go back to Mr. Beavers den and ask for help. He would tell Mr. Beaver that he talked to the Turtle family and that they saw the Upright's take the trapped Little Paddle with them, but why or where he could not know. With night coming soon there was only one animal in the forest that might be able to help, the Night Flyers at a place called the " Flats ".                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

With night coming upon Poppa he must find the Night Flyers and ask for help

Poppa knew the dangers that were waiting for him when he went out at night. The Night Flyers only hunted at night and slept during the day. Poppa knew that he must go to the flats to find the Night Flyers in order to ask them if they have seen the Upright's with a small trapped Platypus. The Night Flyers hunted at night and hunted as one, using sound they would fly around and around and one by one they would find their dinner. When the Night Flyers or bats as they are called by the Upright's heard as one, heard as one and spoke as one, they knew already what Poppa was there for, the forest has ears, it is said and the Night Flyers used the forest as their ears. So now that Poppa was close enough , one bat came and said one word, then another came with another word as the whole hunting party of bats circled around. Away, for test's, now poppa had an answer and wanted one more question, the bats were ready, Always, Poppa question was do the Uprights bring the trapped animal back. Poppa wasted no time leaving , he knew his answer's so he rushed back before he became dinner for another hunters family.                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Little Paddle is taken by the Upright's and is now having tests done, but for what purpose

Little Paddle tried to warn the Beaver family and save Poppa from the Upright's, but instead Little Paddle is caught in a trap and taken to a lab for tests. While under sedation he has a tracking device put on him, when he awakens, he will find out he is no longer in Sunset Rock.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Little Paddle awakens to find himself not in Sunset Rock anymore.

Little Paddle awakens to find himself alone and in a strange place with a strange device around his neck. With the help of First Day Outing training and Momma's songs , Little Paddle will face his biggest test. He must find the three most essential items to live, fresh water, food and shelter.                                                                                                                                                                                             

A new companion for Little Paddle, Dancer

Dancer is a young female Platypus, that was trapped and had a tracking device put on her. Soon she will meet Little Paddle and a whole new adventure will start.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Momma and Poppa have different scheme's to ask for help from Mr. Owl

Now that Poppa has told Momma where Little Paddle is they are both happy, both want to ask Mr. Owl to take a message to Little Paddle in Duck Oak Landing, both have different schemes to ask Mr. Owl but one of the plans could be very dangerous.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Poppa Platypus and Mr. Beaver have a meeting with Father and Son Beaver

Mr. Beaver tells Poppa he has met Father and Son beaver's that know the way to Duck Oak Landing where Little Paddle is. However, the Father Beaver is more interested in the well built Den of Mr Beaver, Poppa is so happy that now he knows where Little Paddle is but does not know how to get word to Little Paddle that Poppa is on his way.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Little Paddle and Dancer find other animals with the tracking device on them

Many animals come together and argue about what is happening to them, Dancer and Little Paddle see this and Dancer becomes very sad at the fact each animal has one small part of what is going on and if they all would co-operate with one another, just like Little Paddle was thinking, everything could be learned through knowledge and understanding, which makes co-operation and trust , then friendship.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Poppa returns to see if Mr. Beaver has any news

Poppa knew that in order fro things to return to something normal for his family he must continue the First Day Outing test's, from the oldest, Toelow, to the youngest, Lily. So Poppa will go to Mr. Beaver's and find out what the news from Honey Bear Rock and Duck Oak Landing animals is, so far all they know is that animals are waking up in different places from where they born and now have something around their necks, we will go and meet with these animals at the marsh to try to help them and maybe know more of what is happening.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Mr. Owl gives Little Paddle and Dancer the message that Poppa is on his way to Duck Oak Landing

Little Paddle and Dancer are now a part of Duck Oak Landing , when Mr. Owl comes to tell them that Poppa is on his way to Duck Oak Landing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Dancer and Little Paddle make a decision

Dancer and Little Paddle know that Poppa is on his way after hearing from Mr. Owl. Know they both know they are needed in Duck Oak Landing, but they both have not spoken to each other about their feelings of what that means and their feelings towards each other, they both have a decision to make.                                                                                                                                                                         

Little Paddle and Dancer make a decision

Little Paddle and Dancer are having second thoughts about Poppa coming there, only because they have not spoken to each other about their feelings towards each other.

For better or Worse

So, how far have I come. The distance between galaxies is a tear drop compared to how far I have yet to come on this blog. I am such a sorry sort of sac- row-illi-ac that if you were to set up the smello-vision, you could , from where you are. Oh well, as with time , so must I, march on that is. Now , if you have a pleasure to see how sad this blog is ( the post's are funny , eh  ) you can now, finally type in littlepaddle.com and the blog theme I have chosen ( I will change at a later date, say may, Yeah ! MAY never come ) will come up and dazzle you, I am still trying again and again, you know trial and error my partner's ever ready to have me try again, at some point like the broken clock I will be correct at least once then by nature and accident I may be correct again so that littlepaddle will have his cover and pictures and a place  ( my story ) for the finish of the first section of little paddle the platypus will come close to his first day outing. Please have faith, don't hold your breath just imagine how much you are going to enjoy reading the rest of what I started such a long time ago. I truly thought I would be done by now and started to figure out how I was going to attract people to my blog, but that as they say ( I don't know who they are yet ) leave it for another day.

Monday, December 2, 2019


I just wrote a post that I thought would be shared on FB then pressed post and it disappeared into the void, so I will try to recapture the moment, and if any of you every tried to recapture what you just said to another or wrote something down, lost it and tried to rewrite it you know what I am about to do.  Fear as a thing, at times it feels alive and tangible. What you need to know is that it is a thing ,but a thing of our own making, fear of the unknown is conquered when we face the unknown and get through it whether we get the results we want or not. Light shown on most fears shows them in the light of truth and truth is the biggest fear ender there is.

First post from THE WRITER

Of Love of things, holds no sway. Here I am to say, I see children while they play. With children, play is play, and there is no gray. As we age we forget that life is better with the love of laughter. You can't be fully aware of the workings of good, unless you face the dark.

Are you out there

Good morning, just wondering if your out there. Will you take a chance and read my posts. A question then. Do you Dream, do you remember your dreams, are they in color or are they black and white, finally, at any point in time, especially when you were young, did you fly in your dreams ?
