The Fearless Wordsmith

Welcome to my blog site my constant readers!

This site's name is a combination of the titles of my two books "Seasons of Emotions" and "Inner Reflections of the Muse". "Looking For Your Half-Orange?" was the original title which had to be reconstructed.

God Sees The Truth But Oops!

I own a copy of a "Pocketbook of Short Stories" with distinguised anthologies of masterpieces by the greatest continental, English and American writers like Ernest Hemingway,  W. Somerset Maugham, Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Saki, Anatole France among others but Leo Tolstoi's story is the most significant for me.
 I have this fondness also of reading classical short stories and one story embedded in my heart ever since the first time I read it is Leo Tolstoi's 19th century classic , " God Sees the Truth But Waits". Relieving  the scenes in the story is so easy for me for along side it reveals my strong belief and faith in God , having been raised up by a religious family.
The story itself is a masterpiece  that I can hand down to my future kids. It tells of one man's suffering  and how he was able to endure life's tribulations, of forgiveness, perseverance and strong belief in God Almighty; of standing by one's principles  despite criticisms from other people around him.
When I was in college, I first chanced upon the story of Ivan Dmitrich Aksinov in our World Literature subject. For me Aksinov is a role model and young people can draw inspiration from him. It seems like Tolstoi created a "mini movie" in this masterpiece of his.
 There are a lot of contemporary and modern novelist nowadays whom I also admire like Paulo Coelho and Mitch Albom who have their own style of imparting inspiration and life's lessons upon their many readers and followers. It's like once you get hold of one of their books, you can't resist but buy again another one of their books and engross yourself in their stories once more.
