Walking Dead – What Happened and What’s Going On

Chad I. Coleman as Tyreese

Right from the start, I’ll admit that I was already crying well before last night’s season premier of The Walking Dead.

Knowing The Dead’s writers as I do, I kept repeating to myself the phrase, ‘there will be blood’.  And, I was right.  Last night we, The Walking Dead audience, said farewell to Tyreese, aka Chad I. Coleman.  The big guy was one of my favorites on the show.

I admit to clicking the TV off as soon as Noah got to his feet and started running.   But then, I said to myself, here is an actor about to pay tribute to his craft by giving an outstanding performance in a dying role.  So, I clicked my TV back on but closed my eyes for the bite scene.  Good thing I kept them open for the rest.

And I was brought to tears again, as the scenes of Tyreese’s friends running down the road carrying him so closely echoed Corey Ankum and Edward Stringer’s friends and fellow firefighter’s running down a Chicago street in an attempt to save their lives.  It was a fantastic episode.

Now let me share with you a bit more of what had me crying before the show even started.

As a fan and a writer, I have a bet going with myself about two things.

One, finding out who, what, and why will NOT satisfy Rick especially with regards to all he has lost.  I mean, when have you ever heard anyone say, “Well, that makes everything alright.”

And two, only three, maybe four, of the cast will survive and I was mourning their loss.

But as a writer, I’m not going to spoil the tension by telling you who I think will survive.

The White Horse Prophecy

What do these two things have in common?

The Wheat Stalks or Bread of Life symbol

Roman breastplate armor and skirt

Probably nothing to the vast majority of you. But say we overlaid the breastplate with the Bread of Life symbol and instead of being silver, we made everything white — stock paper white. Even the man wearing the breastplate. Skin white, hair white, eyes white with just a little pink around the eye rim. He also had a quiver of arrows on his back. And the winged horse he rode was also white.

Saw him when I was around fifteen years old. Never told anyone until now. Absolutely, know we’re not ALONE in the universe.

Every now and then, you really should look up. You’d be amazed!

And from what I saw, this old boy is neither a Republican or Democrat and he gives a whole new meaning to the word mean.

Thigh Bone on Mars!

It only goes to prove what I’ve believed for a long time, that we are not and never were alone in the universe. And don’t dismiss that thought too lightly, all you angels lovers. Where do you think they live? And God, does he abide in permanent solitude?

And as thought provoking as the ‘thigh bone’ picture is the next one is even more interesting. These look like pavers — garden pavers, perhaps?

Paved walk way?

Gensis 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden (which has never been found on this earth) but who knows how many of their ‘children’ they may have left behind who are out searching for us!

Are You Happy America? Mankind

What you don’t see are the planets revolving around those bright points of light which are suns like our Sun.

 

Only man would have the audacity to look up at a billion stars in the sky and say, “I am alone.”

A Writing Prompt or A Harbinger of Things To Come

Sometimes as a writer, you get these fantastic ideas for a novel or novella but because of other commitments — finishing rubysanders.wordpress.com and onethreethirteen.wordpress.com — you know you’ll never get around to starting the project let alone finishing it.

I have one such idea, and I was reminded of it again this morning while watching ‘Good Morning America. So, I’d like to throw that idea out to the writing community.

It goes like this:

When I was a child, we were taught in school that the sun is 93 million miles from earth and that the continental United States was farther south than it is today. However, if you fact check that in Wikipedia today, it states that the sun is 108 million miles from the earth and we’re experiencing a slow continental drift northward. My story idea takes that information and paints a doomsday that the sun is moving away from the earth and as it does it is slowly pulling the earth apart which is the reason for the recent rash of sinkholes.

Who would live and who would die.  And what would life be like on the part of the earth that was left in its old orbit.
