Powerful Me, Powerful You, Powerful Us

I want to share with you a short excerpt from the book Insomnia by Stephen King. It was the second reading for me , the first time being a couple of years ago. I can’t remember if the impact of this was as profound as it was then, but I will tell you that this time it felt like a pretty big brick hit me right in the middle of my eyes! Thankfully it was just a metaphorical brick, so no injuries were actually sustained πŸ˜‰


Lachesis: [No! No,no,no! You couldn’t be more wrong! Have you not wondered why you are Short-Timers, marking the spans of your lives in decades rather than in centuries? Your lives are short because you burn like bonfires! When you draw energy from your fellow Short-Timers, it’s like —]

Image: A child at the seashore, a lovely little girl with golden ringlets bouncing on her shoulders, runs down the beach to where the waves break. In one hand she carries a red plastic bucket. She kneels and fills it from the bast bray-blue Atlantic.


Clotho: [ You are like that child, Ralph and Lois — your fellow Short-Timers are like the sea. Do you understand now?]

Ralph: Β [ There is really that much of this aura energy in the human race?]

Lachesis: [You still don’t understand. That’s how much there is —]

Lois broke in. Her voice was trembling, although whether out of fear or ecstasy, Ralph could not tell.

[ That’s how much there is in each one of us, Ralph. That’s how much there is in every human being on the face of the earth!]



I know right?

I don’t know how much that has impacted you, dear reader…but wow. Can you even imagine?

    1. Hi Melissa πŸ™‚

      This is a big book but very interesting too. It’s a book about Random and Purpose, aura’s and different dimensions …if you do..I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚


  1. I’m a big fan of Stephen King, although the last book I read was 11/22/63. And I could not put that one down. This one seems very intriguing. I will certainly look it up. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Hey, we’re in the same “column.” I joined this because the great Rara said so! I’ll give it a whirl. Not sure I can keep up but I will certainly try!

      Yay to fans of Stephen King..lol. Coincidentally that’s the last book I read too! I went to get Dr. Sleep..it was still in hard cover and 100 Malaysian ringgit..so I’m just going to wait for the paperback edition..lol.

      All the best for the month…I’ve come up with a little something to help me keep some semblance of balance this month..I’m just hoping it works!


  2. Read it. oooo booga booga! I love Stephen King. I have just finished the audiobook “Doctor Sleep”. It is the sequel to “The Shining” about when the little boy doc grows up. It is AWESOME. IT JUST GOT RELEASED. I THINK YOU’LL LIKE IT


    1. Well hello there!! πŸ˜€
      Yay to a another King fan !

      I’m waiting for Dr. Sleep to come out in paperback and then it’s going to be MINE!!! Mwahahahaah!


      I’m actually planning to re read The Shining before starting on Dr. Sleep…that’s going to be fun!
