DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
The Poetic Vibrations of a Matured Butterfly A poetic journey of prose poetry, thoughts, and parables about the quiddity of humankind. The cyclonic interactions and divisions that causes movement, and sometimes turbulent development on the road called Life. To read this volume is to awaken us to the social/political/relational schisms of the world.
Once upon a time in the City of Angels, a Kafkaesque character named R.K. was motoring along at a top rate of speed… zipping through the urban jungle of Sinclairian madness. When like a sudden nuclear ﬂash, a group of soldiers in a squad car with the LAPD emblem on the door appeared; they were pointing, signaling with their stubby ﬁngers for him to pull over. R.K. was not certain of their intentions; seeing that it was quite dark outside, he just sped away. That impulsive act only spurred, fueled the soldiers seething desire for the kill. R.K. held the pedal against the metal, as the car shot through the city street like a jackrabbit racing ahead of a coyote. But to no avail, because like a pack of wolves chasing their prey… they got stronger as the aromatic smell of blood ﬁlled their nostrils. R.K. slowed. Finally, R.K. and his friends were surrounded like a bunch of pioneers cowering (see R.K. was not alone) in their covered wagons; while hostile Indians circle them like one might see in a good old John Wayne B movie. “Get out of the car, Mr. Fox!,” yelled the soldier in charge.
