What started out as a poem has turned into a short story. I thought long and hard about the all caps all block irregular form or style. It wouldn't be ME if I wrote it any other way. Once you reach the end of this short story You will understand why I can. 

Enjoy part I of The Pepperman follow along as we unravel the secrets of Ancient wisdom.

I PRESENT YOU THIS BOOK. IT TRULY HAS POWER. IT'S NOT VERY LONG. YOU CAN READ IN AN HOUR. I WON'T GUARANTY IT'LL MAKE YOU REAL SMART. BUT, IF YOU CAN READ, IT'S A VERY GOOD START. YOU MIGHT READ IT TWICE, TO LET IT SINK IN. ONCE UNDERSTOOD THE JOURNEY BEGINS. I OPENED A DOOR IN THE UNIVERSE. ONLY TO FIND MYSELF, SURROUNDED BY ANCIENT WISDOM. SPIRITUAL LIKE BEINGS DRAPED IN A WHITE FABRIC THAT SEEMED TO SPARKLE, WITH WHAT APPEARED TO BE DIAMOND DUST. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS REMARKABLY COMFORTABLE. SUSPENDED IN A POSITION WHERE I COULD SEE THE STARS ABOVE, BELOW AND BEYOND. I WAS FASCINATED WITH MY SURROUNDINGS. ENOUGH LIGHT TO SEE EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. ENOUGH DARKNESS TO SEE THE UNIVERSE AND THE MILLIONS OF LIGHT YEARS BEFORE ME. SEEING HOW FASCINATED I WAS WITH MY SURROUNDINGS, EVERYONE JUST SMILED AS IF TO WELCOME ME. AS IF THEY WERE EXPECTING ME. IN A VERY SOFT AND GENTLE VOICE. ONE SPOKE THE WORDS. SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE ARE WAITING TO BE UNLEASHED. YOU CAN NOT MAKE WISE DECISIONS IF YOU ARE RESTRICTED IN THOUGHT, LIMITED IN UNDERSTANDING AND NO IMAGINATION. THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE BELONG TO YOU. SET FREE THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE AND YOU SHALL UNDERSTAND, WHO YOU ARE. YOU WILL REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE. YOU WILL KNOW FROM WHERE YOU CAME AND HOW YOU ARRIVED HERE. TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING HERE, ALLOWS YOU TO ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION,WHERE AM I GOING. ONLY THEN WILL YOUR IMAGINATION SET YOU FREE TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS GOING FORWARD. MYSTERIOUSLY, THE ROBES OF WHITE FABRIC, THAT SEEMED TO SPARKLE WITH WHAT APPEARED TO BE DIAMOND DUST, TRANSFORMED INTO A SPARKLING MIST. A VERY COOL AND REFRESHING MIST. THE MIST ATTACHED IT'S SELF TO ME. FASCINATINGLY, THE MIST TURNED INTO A MAGNIFICENT, DEEP DARK BLUE SAPPHIRE COLOR. THE STARS AND HEAVENS BEGAN TO SWIRL. CREATING A PATH ON WHICH TO TRAVEL. THIS WAS THE ROAD OF EXISTENCE, TIME, BEING AND UNDERSTANDING. I SENSED I WAS NOT ALONE. I FELT I WAS EMBRACED BY TRANQUILITY. I FOUND MYSELF, STANDING ON THIS ROAD MADE UP OF SMALL STONES. THEY APPEARED TO BE OF DIFFERENT COLORS. I REACHED DOWN AND PICKED A FEW. UPON CLOSER INSPECTION I REALIZED THEY WERE UNPOLISHED GEM STONES. I COULD FEEL THE ENERGY OR FREQUENCIES RADIATING. IT INSTANTLY BECAME CLEAR AND I UNDERSTOOD WHY ANCIENT EGYPTIAN PHARAOHS WORE BREAST PLATES WITH MANY DIFFERENT GEM STONES. I THOUGHT ABOUT THE ROAD THE STONES AND I REALIZED. EACH AND EVERY STONE WAS CREATED DURING EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE. SOME COULD BE MEASURED IN LIGHT YEARS. MILLIONS OF LIGHT YEARS. THE ENERGY OR FREQUENCY THEY POSSESS OR RADIATE IS LIFE. ANCIENT LIFE FORM. SOME WERE MORE RECENT. SUCH AS THE SUN STONE. A BEAUTIFUL STONE. I COULD EASILY VISUALIZE THIS STONE POLISHED. CAPTIVATING, MESMERIZING. A CREATION WORTHY OF PRAISE. I TURNED AROUND. THERE WAS NO ROAD BEHIND ME. I WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF A ROAD, CREATED OF UNPOLISHED GEM STONES. THE THOUGHT, A PRICELESS JOURNEY, DID CROSS MY MIND. I WAS ABOUT TO JOURNEY DOWN A ROAD WITH ONLY ONE DIRECTION. I STARTED THIS JOURNEY WITH AN OPEN MIND, PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY AWARE OF MY SURROUNDINGS. WITH OUT FEAR, I STARTED WALKING. I HAD NO SENSE OF TIME, AS FAR AS HOURS AND MINUTES. THE TIME WAS PRESENT, PAST AND FUTURE AT THE VERY SAME TIME. DISTANCE WAS INFINITE. I FELT I WAS ON A MISSION. SOMETHING I SHOULD DO IN MY LIFE. SOMETHING I NEEDED TO DO IN LIFE. MY PACE WAS A BRISK WALK. I FELT I WAS WALKING FORWARD INTO THE PAST.
