A – Z
I’m proud to be a part of a wonderful organization called the Writers of Kern. They are having a “Blog Challenge” and I’m participating. I’m writing my normal two blogs per week but challenging myself to be prompted by the alphabet. Hope you can read all twenty six from A-Z. For more good reading check out the Writers of Kern’s Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/95572300558/
X is for XAVIER
The word today is pronounced like it starts with a Z (zey-vee-er).
Xavier is an important place and person to me. The place is a very beautiful hidden lake way up in the Sierra Mountains in Northern California. Lake Xavier. I would have to show you because I doubt you can find it on your own.
The lake was named by my important person, Xavier Martinez He was the great-great grandfather of Matthew Grimes, another important person. Xavier Martinez had the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time when the Spanish Land Grants were awarded. His land contained the impossible to find lake.
Matt Grimes inherited the land and lake from his mother. Over the decades a few earthquakes made the lake reachable only by horseback or strong legs. For many years Matt moved boulders and cut a trail to the lake which his four-wheel off-road vehicle could manipulate. Then more years passed as Matt painstakingly built a wonderful cabin overlooking his beloved lake. It was his getaway, his refuge.
By an amazing technological breakthrough Matt met another Xavier… Xavier Grimes, his great-great grandson. From the year 2016, Matt was suddenly in 2135. Cool, huh?
I guess you don’t believe what I’m telling you. Well, it’s true in my head, because I’m the one who made it all up somewhere in the deepest bowels of my brain. I use those two words interchangeably because I make shit up.
The wonderful letter “X” gave me an excuse to remind you, dear reader, if you haven’t checked out my novel “CKS” then you won’t learn about Xavier. And you really should.
It’s a story about love, lust, betrayal and adventure…now and in the future.
So, check it out. It’s easy. It’s at Amazon in paperback or Kindle. Just click on the book title on the right side of this page or click right here:
Thanks. Now my great-great grandson can get some shoes.
And I can pay my taxes. Happy 4/15.
