Book Release! Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Is Out Now! | #Poetry #Prose #Love #Books #LoveConquersAll #Amor VincitOmnia

As a preface, the above book that has just been released, Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All, has been released under my other pen name, Zy Marquiez. I know this might spur some confusion, but I lead off with that fact so individuals realize that I am one and the same, Noctis Blackburn and Zy Marquiez. As I continue to release books, the deliberate dichotomy will be incredibly significant, but that will be touched upon in the future.

With that out of the way, Amor Vincit Omnia means a lot to me for myriad reasons, much more than I could probably ever convey in words.  The fact that this book begins with an 11 page introduction shows how serious this book is to me, and how much I wanted to set a proper foundation for the argument that Love does in fact conquer all.

Moreover, the fact that this book is triple the size than my previous book Halcyon Days (word–count wise), also shows the significant extent I was willing to go to in order to extend the argument of Lover Conquering All as precise as possible under the intricate circumstances of such a broad topic.  This isn’t filler content at all however.  Not even close.  The book features dozens of notations, not unlike most of my previous books, examining various different circumstances of how Love does in fact hold the power to change society through all strata, and not simply from a romantic point of view.

Yes, many of the poems in the book are written from a couple’s point of view, or a romantic point of view, but the poems are often metaphors operating on multiples tiers, not unlike life operates physically and metaphysically simultaneously, and those metaphors are extrapolated upon in the notations with key poems in mind, and crucial concepts in mind like kindness, goodness, appreciation, and so on.

Now, at its core, the book features two different arguments of how Love Conquers All.  The first argument is the one that is covered through most of the book given its complexity, which is explained in the introduction.  The second argument is simple, very simple.  I happen to believe both are true.  That said, what I myself believe is irrelevant, as I make it a point to explain in the book, I share these thoughts for consideration purposes only, examining of how Love could hypothetically not only “conquer all”, but could also create resounding change in the world. 

Of course, the book is written with a very broad point of view in mind, sampling many subjective and objective points as well.  The point is life, Love, and the paths that each individual take, happen in so many complex ways, to try and explain away such a concept and emotion as Love in a “one–size–fits–all” type of way would be very ignorant, or perhaps, shortsighted.  Life is, and always will be much more complicated than that, particularly when emotions are involved.  Even so, I do think the topic of Love isn’t explored with as much depth and care as it should be, which is one of the vanguard reasons why I chose to write this book. 

Ultimately, what you believe about Love is your business, and you have every right to believe what you do because the life that you live is yours and yours alone, and the path that you are on is yours alone as well.  I simply hope that this book offers something of substance that will help you consider not only Life and Love in a kaleidoscope of circumstances and how those ultimately help you grow as a person, but also how Love can help create that type of resonance that in fact does ultimately help change the world.

The Fusion Of Writing & Life To Bring Depth To An Individual | #Life #Writing #WritingCommunity

“Life is too important to be taken seriously”
– Oscar Wilde

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
September 5, 2019

Life is experienced in a full kaleidoscope of circumstances that show the endless ways that it can be experienced.  How we choose to experience those circumstances will ultimately dictate what we get out of them, and how much meaning and depth will be had.

One of the vanguard reasons I love writing is because it allows for the exploration of life through the written medium, which showcases countless writing styles, but also because it allows you to examine meaningful circumstances at length, but more importantly, to record them as a time capsule of sorts for yourself, or for others.  Additionally, the wisdom garnered from many of the most astute individuals in the past still lives on, all due to their choice to pen their thoughts in timeless fashion.

This merger of an individual’s experience and creative process, brought about through writing, still resonates today.  Such instances not only allows individuals to learn from the past in myriad ways, but ultimately also aids individuals to live a better life, a wiser life, a more fulfilling life, all because those individuals took pen to paper and seared their voices into the pages of history after imprinting the insights they learned through the trials and tribulations they faced. 

That is incredible power, not only because words have the influence to change people’s lives as well as history in significant ways through their inherent resonance, but words add depth to life that at times can be looked upon time and again for those with appreciation of it, as is the baseline for these thoughts.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of writing, whether it is blogs, paper notes, letters, creative writing, poetry, fiction, short stories, and so on, to add depth to your life and those of others.  For just like a mindful and deep breath brings a moment of clarity, no matter how fleeting it may be, the act of writing can also bring clarity that can allow not only for the recording of meaningful circumstances that took place in an individual’s life, but this also allows for more incisive examination of meaning within the very fibers of life, the untold depths that often go unexplored not only in the moment, but later on. 

 Such circumstances while possibly seemingly insignificant at the time, might just echo through the end of time.
