Robin Harris is the youngest of nine children. She has been writing since she learned to write, or so it seems. She has written poetry, prose, songs lyrics, fiction, non-fiction, movie scripts, etc. Her inclination to write was so innate, the gift long remained transparent to her and therefore underutilized. Robin spent a great part of her life searching for a niche that could contribute to the world at large and offer her a sense of personal fulfillment. Robin is currently completing a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology at Wayne State University. Her area of concentration is Human Performance Technology. Dream Catcher: The First Story, the book and workbook, was her first written work to merge her knowledge gained from her graduate studies with her natural ability to write inspirational stories. Dream Catcher: The First Story was birthed from her realization that our gifts, talents, skills, and inclinations intersect in a time and space that can open up the experience of living an extraordinary life.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

From the Chapter "The Slayer's Network"
Over the next three weeks, work was little more than a series of political brush fires. PVS had prematurely launched two major software packages that had not successfully passed beta testing and the company stock dropped 20%. Quiet Storm moved among the Board of Directors. One by one they began to react and shortly thereafter, the CEO announced a re-engineering strategy that was sure to leave a significant number of employees permanently displaced. Quiet Storm was inviting a torrential downpour to rain on the lives of PVS' employees, contractors, and vendors alike. Public scrutiny had imposed a sell-and-bail mentality on PVS' shareholders, and PVS was large enough that this was going to have a rippling effect on certain segments of the economy. Quiet Storm laughed triumphantly - so little effort would ultimately yield so much destruction and all she had to do was set the ball in motion.
The easy-going Andrew Caplietti was replaced at HR by his cutthroat underling, Brian Wood, and life at PVS turned into corporate hell. Fear struck at every opportunity. Pessimism uprooted any hope of a full recovery. Anger hacked his way into those who left as well as those who stayed. The corporation was infected on a large scale. Werner made enemies because he refused to be anything but happy. "Sure, this is awful," he'd say, "but look at the bright side, it's still good to be alive. I don't know about you, but I feel blessed."
Pessimism took Werner's positive outlook as a personal insult, and began wondering what it would take to bring the cancer out of remission. "How blessed would he feel then?" he scoffed. He tried to pass through Werner, but the man's energy was so focused he could only stay in for a fraction of a second. Even Werner's cells were happy.
"Looks like I'm going to have to come back to this one. In the meantime, I'm sure I can find someone more vulnerable to destroy." He combed the halls of PVS looking for a candidate, and eventually settled on a man he found lounging by the drinking fountain. Something about the man's lazy posture caught Pessimism's eye, and he moved in for a closer inspection. "Blake Smith. He's perfect, absolutely negatively perfect." Blake Smith, an independent advertising consultant in his late thirties, had been with PVS for almost 7 years. Blake had a wife and three small children and he knew he had a bright future ahead of him as long as he remained the golden gopher of William Harman, VP of Marketing and Sales. He spent as much time kissing butt and sloughing off as he did working. 'Sycophant' was the word Werner applied to Blake's disgusting ability to suck up to senior management.
Whisper stayed out of the mainstream and traveled the undercurrents. He was shocked by the complex network the Slayers had erected since they had targeted PVS. Fleeting Thought did what she could to help by nurturing whatever positive thoughts she detected, but Pessimism had done his seed work well, and most of those who were strong enough to resist Pessimism's lure were updating their resumes or waiting for lucrative buy-out packages. Werner infected a few stray souls with his hopeful optimism, and Lingling, who worked closely with him, decided it was a good time for her and her husband Xane to have a second child.
Whisper stayed close to Carmen, but he knew he was not ready to take on the Slayers yet, so he only spoke to her in the dreamtime. It was safer that way. It didn't keep her from being affected by the negativity in the atmosphere, but it did keep the dream seed alive in her subconscious mind.
It rested there, undisturbed at the bottom of the trough, for over a month, until the day she realized her cut had grown out and she needed to go see her stylist, Vicki, again.
