Writing has become a very important part of Doc's life and it doesn't matter to him if it's writing a book or if it's just sitting down and putting pen to paper for a poem. To take that a step farther, it doesn't matter to him if it's something that he might publish or if it's personal and just for him. Writing is writing and it's relaxing states Doc. It takes me to places within my mind that I might not ever imagined going to, and when all is said and done, it's a personal type of therapy that works for me and that's what counts in the end.
It's not about publishing a book to the masses that makes it all worth-wild claims DocDalton. It's about being 100% honest in those writings that truly count the most. It's not about being the best writer in the world because I am not even close to that states Dalton, because the truth is, I am the guy who might spell some words wrong or have comma's, periods and other things that should be in certain places not in those places. But it also shows people that in this day and age, you can just do it and be happy with yourself for doing it. States Doc, would you rather have someone write 100% perfect, but B.S. you all the way through the story, or someone who is 100% honest with you and tells it straight from their heart but yet, not that perfect.
I say just that in this book and a lot more say's Dalton. I am 100% up-front and honest about my writings and tell people that I am not here to be that perfect writer. Right from the start, within the first few pages I let them know who I am and what this is all about. Truthfully, I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be honest in what I write and let folks understand that my words come straight from my heart. Take note, let everyone else be perfect states Doc, I am happy just being me and it took me a very long time to get to this point in my life.
You do not need to agree with me on different things that I write because it's OK to disagree. But it is within those disagreement, that you can say to yourself, I may not agree with him, but the one thing I know for sure is, he is being honest in what he believes in. It's been said that, honesty is always the best policy, well the truth is, my mother always said that to me. She may be gone, but I know she is watching over me from up above so I need to stick to my honesty or she will appear right in front of my eyes and give me a spiritual ass whopping. And I don't what that.
So for now it's Old Dogs of the Whiskey Pie Trail and coming in 2018 and 2019 there will be a number of books being released under the series name, Watering the Spirit. So please come back and check out the information for more up-dates.
The answer is simple states Doc. I am a big believer in Prayer. I believe that Prayer is the most un-selfish act of kindness you can give to someone because you are asking the Lord to protect someone, help someone, guide someone, love someone and be with someone while never asking for anything in return. It is to me truly a gift of kindness and the world can use a ton of kindness about now.
To me Watering the Spirit just seemed right. Prayer has a lot to do with the Spirit and it truly has so much to do with growing not only within yourself and the understanding of life in genera, but it also has so much to do with personal growth in your Faith. If you truly believe in Prayer, Faith will never be a problem for you and if you truly have Faith, Prayer will never be a problem for you as well. But just like when you first plant a seed, you need to water it and take care of it for it to grow. The exact same thing takes place here, you need to cultivate it, take care of it or for lack of better words, water your Faith so it will grow as well.
It's a little play on words but again, it just seemed right to me. Sorry, wish I had a more interesting answer for you, but that is what it is.
why is the series called, watering the spirit
