My  name is Yecheilyah (e-see-lee-yah) Ysrayl but everyone calls me EC for short, and I am the author and founder of The PBS Blog. I’m an Israelite and my name is Hebrew and means “Yah Lives”. Yah is the proper name for the most high, and Yahoshua is the proper name for his son.

Pearls Before Swine is a term that comes from Matthew Chapter Seven, Verse Six of the bible. I chose this title to first establish from the beginning that this blog is founded and rooted in truth, and secondly because I love to write symbolically, objectively, and metaphorically; being able to compare objects or use them as symbols to stand-in for a deeper meaning.

In the context of this blog, Pearls symbolizes the truth and swine symbolizes the lie. I’d always rather have truth over lies and will always seek not to cast my pearls before swine. That is, I will not stone you, condemn you, or force you to accept anything I have to offer. You have your own life and your own choices. I only hope to inspire positive change  in some way. Even if in the life of one person.

The Tagline

 

THE PBS

“Because Truth is Stranger Than Fiction”

“Truth is Stranger Than Fiction” isn’t just a fancy tag line put together by a writer of fiction; not something I dug up between the inspirations of Mark Twain. What it seeks to communicate is the notion that  nothing we can create can be as unusual as what we are bound to find in real life, and speaks metaphorically of the unsettling realness of truth. The “strangeness” of reality. You think something is weird until you find out just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

I notice that one of the most interesting ways that people learn is by way of symbols because it appeals to the subconscious mind, and I enjoy incorporating this into my writing.

Mission, Purpose Goal

My mission for the existence of this blog is to spread truth by way of the  written word and spoken word, to include, but not limited by: Poetry, Articles, Creative Writing, Indie Author Tips, Inspirational Quotes, Biblical Analysis, History, Blog Tips and Music. Also, to provoke thought among the limited ways we tend to think and feel, and to inspire others the same as others have inspired me.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you.

-Matthew 7:6

  2. Hi!
    I read what you wrote. When you mentioned the black men accused of raping a hairstylist, it reminded me of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD which was based on a real bogus case.
    Anyway, I wanted to thank you for following my blog Reflections. Welcome!
    Nice meeting you,
    Janice

  3. I have just read this page of your blog and can’t wait to read more! Very interested in your books as well. Also, I think your name is beautiful and should not be shortened! No ever pronounces my name right, Elissa, just Melissa without the M. Or down south my family calls me Lissa Beth. Looking forward to reading more.

    1. Thank you Roo! I am always so honored by these awards and I thank you for thinking of me. I regret to inform you that I do not accept The Spirit Animal Awards because I don’t believe in that kinda thing and accepting it would just make me uncomfortable. But I am very thankful for your thoughts nonetheless. I am humbled to be considered for any award, thank you.

  4. One of the many things I love about reading so many blogs is reading the About. It says a lot more about the author of the blog than one might imagine. For instance, I know several important things about you now. You are laid back. You don’t like to waste words saying nothing. I imagine you’re probably a good listener. I found that good listeners are a wealth of information. Ask them the right questions, and really show interest, and you may get some great information in return. You also like to read. You like to write, and you have a lovely name, which you’d prefer people pronounce correctly or call you by your “letters.” Happy to make you acquaintance!

  5. It is a shame that Bart Simpson didn’t have a few words with The Donald’s wife before that speech. Okay, so we know she didn’t write it but she was the one reading it and of course taking credit…

  6. I was really happy to discover your blog via the comment you left on Kristen Lamb’s blog. I especially like your comments regarding writing in a way that reveals deeper meaning than the words left on the page. I’m reading Ben Okri at the moment, who is an absolute MASTER at this, so I’m definitely excited to read your work.
