I’m a Full-Time writer and blogger. Help me keep this site running.
We run off coffee! Buy me a cup?
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.
“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.
