As the lights that have guided us go out, people begin to wander in the twilight, seeking their place of belonging. In these stories, set in recent times, but before the blinding glare of social media, Roger Scruton describes the remembered landscapes of people who are not where they belong, and not quite where they wished to be. With unfailing lightness of touch, Scruton portrays characters who cannot let go of the past: Yusuf, set on a path of revenge that bears no relation to his teenage life; Bill who wanders the world in his imagination but cannot leave his suburban living room; Sarah, whose insane mission to save the Lebanese Christians brings disaster to the only person she loves; Veronica, whose determination to look the truth in the face wraps her young life in deception--all of them lost to their surroundings and yet touchingly seeking a home in them. For lovers of the short story, these exquisite pictures of modern people will be cherished for their insight and poetic drama.

"Why then was I not told, the brain can hold, in it's tiny Ivory cell, God's heaven and hell?" As asked buy an ancient philosopher. NAUTICAL TWILIGHT the sea of souls, where the silent bell doth toll is many a creative non-fiction literary collection; an anthology of sorts from the collected excerpts from the files of a Metaphysician, credentialed to use the metaphysical sciences to heal others. The Therapist's Creed reads " I am but a mirror you look into to see yourself." It suggests the temerity of us all; within lives lived day to day, moment to moment where in struggles are a constant boundary. This then is an accounting as bold as the making of a motion picture to outdo "Gone With The Wind" Indeed, we of human origin radiate personal dynamics, some good, some bad. Indeed, if one were to put on a stage show from our subconscious as well as conscious mind it would need, possible, a million Actors and Actresses to complete our recital, a live performance of our minds Book Of Knowledge. "The sea of souls where the silent bell doth toll" is a metaphor for the details of our life. Within one's own mind we are as silent as a bell at sea. This then is a journey beyond one's tranquil still waters, a kaleidoscope of the mysterious things that lurk about us night and day, about the universal place of dreams and the phenomena of our ability to travel the Universe without leaving the safety of our own minds during nightmares and dreams. NAUTICAL TWILIGHT is reference to the perfect time to enter our other world, either by deep sleep or hypnosis; however, we enter it as a private, sacred domain and those willing to journey this book, will broaden the edges of their borders to the rich book knowledge we all write during our journey throughout our lifetime. Between the pages of this book the heroes and heroines parade their vulnerabilities, their bumbling mistakes as an adventurer and voyeur of who done what, why and when. Of course you will question the validity of every chapter, the audacity it took to write it and the temerity to live through it! Remaining safely glued to the content of this book you will be grateful none of this happened to you! Cherishing the insider information as to "What not to do, ever!"
