Everything is an invention of love. Elevate your soul towards the truth of love. Only true love is required from an uneasy soul. Always love inner beauty instead of outer one for your soul to survive. Outer glare is transient whereas inner charm is perpetual. A pure soul takes you to a pure relation. Hopes can just make you live on, it does not please you at all. So live in reality to live on. Be simple… Adopt simplicity as the base of your life. In addition, worldly glare will put you in a state of hallucinations and illusions. If we really consider the existence of the “Almighty”, then we are all equal mighties of the “Almighty”. Even if we’re distinct outwardly but inwardly we’re still even. We all are created with the same elements. We’re a homogeneous mixture of good and evil. None here is saintly, But souls are kept from all evils and devils.
We are made for Herculean tasks. Live in reality but with solemnity. Humans are mysterious, they don’t know about themselves which is really mysterious. All ways are complex until you befriend them. Your softness defeats the hard times. “Trees confront autumn every year, but they wait for spring, too. You are a magician & your endeavors are magics. Keep fluttering your arms like a laborious butterfly, indeed you’ll get a lawn of bliss. Flourish the flora of love by the drops of humanity. Keep a long distance from Wars and Crimes; they have been devastators of every era. No disparity in caste, creed, religion, tradition, racism will freely inspire you to love all. Love is peace of soul, it is as necessary as The Sun is in the universe. It will be gloomy around us without love. Be theist, stop blesphemy on and on. God doesn’t abandon you despite your hideous deeds.
We urge you to read our book that you might know how we love all the people around us and the world we live in. Pure love never fails.
Delve into the depths of a woman’s heart and mind. Breakthrough the veil of propriety, social norms, and self-made rules that prevent us from freely expressing ourselves. Reading through this book is so empowering and enlightening as it provides us an insight into what goes inside a woman’s head, her unspoken words, repressed feelings, and pent-up emotions.
Estelle bravely writes about struggles, chaos, pain, regrets, longings and even goes further to vividly reveal her sensual side without being vulgar or profane. Brace yourself as this book teleports you into daydreams and guilty pleasures only women understand. You will be amazed at how Estelle can radically defy and challenge perceived limitations and taboos with couth.
This book, “SENSUALITY, CHAOS, AND PAIN” by Estelle Cortes is truly revolutionary and one of a kind!
In behalf of teacher Baibinky Alphaalpha and the Special Kids in her SPED class, I would like to thank my friends who ordered my book and who are still planning to order. The hope that the pupils will be properly assessed by a Pediatric Developmental Specialist is no longer just a hope but a 90% probability. The perfect Valentine’s Day gift to these kids who are as deserving of love and a fair chance to learn as any other kids.
Thank you so much for your love. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Nap’s poetry prizes simplicity. But that simplicity is NOT accomplished by the ignoring of details, and the minimalism is not a result of sloppiness. The simplicity found in Nap’s poems are the result of intense care and attention. It is with care the poet prunes and drops what is unnecessary.
From his seat in the secluded farm, Nap uses his senses to experience his surroundings. He shares his thoughts by writing poems about nature, God, and his beloved grandchildren. While he often uses nature as his main theme the power of his poems do not lie in presenting nature as it is. It lies in his imagination.
Jill’s Tales tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, about me and my entire life-long happenstances.
I began writing from my earliest memories of an innocent child, a fisherman’s youngest daughter. I was born and bred in a small seaside village, which boasts beautiful beaches and castles on the coastal shores.
Throughout my married years as a Mother and a wife, where I now dwell in the picturesque countryside.I add my Life in verses of Jill’s Tales, which I hope you, the reader, enjoy immensely…
