LOVE IS THE GUIDING LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE

LOVE IS THE GUIDING LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE IS THE FIRST SELF PUBLISHED COLLECTABLE BOOK WRITTEN BY MAT THE OLD MAN. THE BOOK RECALLS RANDOMLY SELECTED ORIGINAL SONG LYRICS FROM 1994 THROUGH TO 2003 -WITH COMPANION EXCERPTS FROM THE TRUE ROCK N ROLL MEMORIES OF ALL THOSE PARTICULAR SONGS CONCEPTIONS.

THE BOOK DELVES BACK INTO THE SHADOWS OF MATHEW'S SELF DESTRUCTIVE LIFESTYLE AND THE MADNESS OF ADDICTIONS -WHILST OFFERING LONG FORGOTTEN INSIGHTS INTO LONG FORGOTTEN SONGS.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND GODDESS I WALK FREE FROM THE SLOW SUICIDE OF LIFE-THREATENING ADDICTION-ONE BREATH AT A TIME- I FACE AND TRANSFORM MY DARKEST SHADOWS INTO MY BRIGHTEST LIGHT.

SCENES FROM THE GALACTIC COUNCIL

SCENES FROM THE GALACTIC COUNCIL IS THE SECOND SELF PUBLISHED COLLECTABLE BOOK WRITTEN AND CREATED BY MAT THE OLD MAN. THE BOOK ITSELF WAS COMPILED AS AN INTER-DIMENSIONAL CREATIVITY LYRIC BOOK. MAT FOUND THAT HE STILL HAD LOADS OF LYRICS TO SONGS THAT PROBABLY WOULD NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY- SO HE STARTED TO PUT THEM ALL TOGETHER INTO A KIND OF SCRAPBOOK -ALONG WITH OLD CHILDHOOD DOODLES AND IMAGES. NEXT, HE ADDED STORIES- PHILOSOPHIES- EXCERPTS AND SLOGANS IMPOSED ON TOP OF THE IMAGES TO MAKE UP THE BOOK. THE FINISHED BOOK KEPT EVOLVING THROUGH VARIOUS EDITS INTO THE FINAL ONE.

THESES FIRST TWO EXPERIMENTAL BOOKS ARE MERELY A FOUNDATION FOR ME TO MOVE TOWARDS MORE EXPERIMENTAL NOVEL WRITING AND ULTIMATELY GRAPHIC NOVELS. I ENJOY WRITING AND THREADING THINGS TOGETHER AND ALL THIS CREATIVE ENERGY ONLY ENHANCES AND SERVES MY RECOVERY AND MY SELF EMPOWERMENT THERAPY.
