Finding Meaning in an Indifferent World

The Truth AdI’ve become rather philosophical in my old age and I love this new site where I’ve posted a number of articles. You can subscribe to my posts on the Niume site. Here’s my latest on Finding Meaning:

We are more interested in changing our shirts or a pair of shoes or the latest song than in questioning why we exist at all. If anything doesn’t seem to work for us, we will not dig in and labour harder to make it work, or to learn if its valuable to us in the long term. We give up, move on, and that has become our philosophy of life. If it doesn’t work for me, cast it off. because I’m the arbiter of all things good or bad. This is not a healthy viewpoint.

Based on the Shadow Archetype defined by Carl Jung, Chéri Vausé swings on the Saurian Tale of her Villains, and routs the viper for a satisfying end. If you like psychological thrillers with a literary bent, there's no formulaic style here. The first in her Shadow series, The Night Shadow is the pick of The series features the private investigators Esther Charlemagne and Aiden "Mac" McManus, former NYPD detectives. The stories are set in the moral upheaval of the sixties, the former generation of the PI's world rubbing against the loud and tumultuous times causing friction between those they chase and the heroes.

Chéri Vausé is a member of (SinC) Sisters in Crime, a professional writing organization for the crime writer. Her Shadow series will be seeing a new addition, picking up shortly after The Touch of a Shadow left off. Tentatively titled, Lady in the Shadows.
