The true secret of Alba...
This quote does a great job of summing up the theme of my series, Secret of Alba. We all have more control over our lives, our happiness, and our worldview than we realize.
Our minds are amazing in function and control. Part of the inspiration for writing Reaper and Patrician was from my fascination with humanity's capacity to choose their perspective, and their emotions. The Technology that plays an increasingly important role in the series is the secret hidden in Alba, but the real secret I allude to is the power each one of has already has within us.
It becomes too easy to feel like a victim; like we have no control over the world around us and our own situation in that world. But I believe we all have more power than we realize to control our lives; not what happens to us, but how we feel. How we react. If only we realized how much power we truly have.
"Life is a series of small choices. Even when we feel fettered and unfree, there is always a choice. Every moment, every breath, is a choice. And in this, is freedom." -From Reaper
