By David Michael
Her twenty-first birthday rang in the first day of the humid New Orleans summer and Aziza was hell-bent on making the most of it. A tall, dark and Creole hunk of a man named Landon walked into the waiting room, something about him rocked her to the core. She knew he was going to be an integral part of her summer.
When two strangers, Ardra and Kaiser, manage to make a place for themselves with her reclusive grandmother, she can’t shake the feeling that their arrival signals the beginning of something terrible. The unseen threat manifests itself in her dreams and she begins to spiral out of control. Having driven away her family and friends, she turns to Landon, Ardra and Kaiser for help only to find out that none of them are quite what they seem.
The battle between Light and Dark has reached a tipping point and the gates of Hell are crumbling. Aziza must find a way to stop the Darkness from spilling over into our world before the scales tip any further and the war destroys us all.

(This is something my friend David wrote before he passed away. It made me consider what is really important to me and if I am doing more of that than what isn’t. Every word below is exactly as he had written. Even the comment about editing. These are things I want to remember…)
David Kulig’s Honor Code, Value System, and Way of Life
List 10 things that are important in order from most important to least important.
(Christianity, Family, Work, Friends, Communication)(Magic, Pool, Chess, Guitar, Driving)
1. If you are spending time doing something that is not on the life facets list, then figure out a way to change the activity or leave to spend time doing something that is.
2. If you can do multiple things on the list at the same time then do so.
3. If you find that you are filling whole days with these facets, then you are living a better life.
4. If boredom sets in or a feeling of anxiousness fills you, then try doing something on the list that you haven’t done in a while.
5. Try to stay at a life facet long enough that is feels like work. These life facets should be difficult; this is how we improve.
6. The first 5 life facets are bare necessities.
7. The second five life facets are icing on the cake.Try to life a full life. A full life that is filled with these ten things.
David Kulig’s Value System and way of life
The first 5 things are life essentials, while the last 5 are icing on the cake. I must learn these things well without wasting time on things I haven’t started learning already. Learning new subjects would only diminish the time I spend on the outlined things that I would like to perfect.
Doing more than one thing at a time is good. For instance, driving with a friend and communicating about Christianity should be seen as a wonderful and productive time.
When boredom sets in it might be time to rotate into something else that is on the list. My learning curve is better when I am not bored.
Although the first 5 subjects are more important than the second 5, I must focus on Magic, Pool, Chess, and Guitar because they are the backbone of my business. These things are now considered work, which is the third subject in the first 5.
What are your 5 things? Does your list start something like mine? Maybe you have something that used to rival studying for school? What are you for real at? What do you wish you were for real at? Do you have to pick and choose to make it only 10 things? If not, then how many things DO you have? These things are a gifts from God if used properly. How do you want to spend the rest of your life and what do you want to do while you’re here on Earth? Have you given up on special childhood dreams? What did you want to be as a child? Are any of these childhood dreams possible still?
There’s always room for improvement. PACE YOURSELF!
This is a living document which means I have greatly revised and edited it and will continue to do so. Please consider doing this exercise for yourself and spreading the word to whomever you choose.
