2nd Edition Cover by Katherine Gerardi, published on December 11, 2012

“Path of Three Hundred” is a published book by Greg Frucci with illustrations by Katherine Gerardi.

The story is based on real events however, the characters in the story are fictional.  As the story is being read by an individual, it is my hope that you will be able to feel the journey of challenges for your Self…make it your own.

For perhaps many or all of us…there have existed people in our lives who tell us what we “should” or “need” to do.  Sometimes, we may feel in our inner Being what we think is right, yet we listen to others and sometimes let them make decisions for Us.  This story is about a man who finally decides to take off on his own for a time…and listen to himself…his Inner Voice.

The journey in a physical sense is an open ocean solo sailing adventure.  Yet, as the main character Petah experiences Life along the physical path he has chosen, he begins to understand a certain way of being which had always existed in his core…he just didn’t know how to maintain the way…it would drift away from time to time until he would see it again.  As if the Universe says to us, “OK…let’s try this again, only this time you’re going to go through something even more intense…perhaps this time, you’ll get it.”

Leaps of Faith abound in this story…”walls” of Life to be faced by an individual.  Chances at leaps of Faith appear to all of Us at particular points along all of our Paths.  Next time one surfaces in your Life, perhaps take it…you never know what you may find.

  3. Thanks for your visit to my site. Looks like we have some writing themes in common …. my book y1 (9/1/12) is about sailing and finding ones true happiness as well. I look forward to following your site and checking out your book.

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Thank you Sherrie. I love to read books about sailing and I would like to read yours. Sailing alone so many days at sea was one of the best times of my life thus far…even with the intensity of storms and things unexplained. One gets to know the Self out there…all walls down…naked to the Universe and Who we truely are. Peace to you, Greg

    You are on an amazing writing quest! Just stopping by to peruse your site and thank you for your recent visit and like on “Shift Key.” [When I enter your site, I feel like I'm a knight in another realm!] Thanks!

    • Greg Frucci says:

      “a Knight in another realm”…
      thank you for that…I did feel like I was in another realm while at sea…one in which became a wonderful Life changing experience…

      peace to you,
      Greg

    Thank you Greg for the like :-) How is your book going? I love the image you choose a lot. Cheers, Ute

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Thank you for asking Ute. The words are flowing and my goal is to publish via CreateSpace on August 9th, 2012 which is the anniversary of publishing “Inspiration From A Muse: Poems To Her” because the poems were written around the voyage. Much meaning in the image…and I’m writing a post about it.

      peace to you and Cheers!

    Hi, Greg

    Interesting site and the book sounds fascinating. I’ll be back to more leisurely poke around:)

    Thanks for visiting my blog – hope you found something of value there.

    John

    • Greg Frucci says:

      oh, I find incredible value on your blog, for instance the post I discovered yesterday on your site…

      “Consistency relates to discipline, but has more to do with how well you do something. Doing your best all the time can seem an exhausting challenge. In my opinion, it’s easier to stick to a quality than to vary.”

      yes, I agree…
      the process of being alone at sea hundreds of miles offshore with no place to “pull over” to think, rest, eat, plan, etc….
      doing what i have always wanted to do and making it happen became the easy part after i quieted the mind and listened to my Voice…
      for…there was no other Choice and what a wonderful experience.
      :)

      Thank you for visiting and hope you find value here as well,

      peace to you John,

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Thank you John,
      The experieces of Life….this one in particular has inspired Change…or a metamorphosis within I…

      I love your blog…

      peace to you,

    Hello Greg,

    Thanks so much for having a look at my blog–like you, writing is a passion. It’s very clear in your excellent work. Enjoy the journey.

    • Greg Frucci says:

      :) Your blog inspires positive thoughts…I was happy to find it this morning…
      enjoying the passion of words as they express a story of Life…thank you…

  11. Debbie says:

    Hi there Greg,
    Thanks for stopping by Shadows and liking a post this morning. On your journey for the discovery of peace for Petah, I do hope that you will return to Shadows often. After all, the stories of life are but shadows of Love.

  12. Julianna says:

    This looks fabulous…I’m going to spend some time perusing your site…Love when I stumble upon uplifting, Light-fueled energy…

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Welcome Julianna and thank you for perusing Path of Three Hundred. It’s a work in progress and I’ll continue to upload chapters as I write.
      “light-fueled energy”…thank you for the warmth.

      peace to you,
      greg

  13. Bernadett-B says:

    Love your illustrations and the book seems so inspirational, looking forward of new installations.

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Thank you Bernadett, I’ve been enjoying the Co-Creative process of Art with the graphic artist, Katherine Gerardi who is taking my sketches and turning them into colorful pieces which will be used in this book.
      I’m happy to know “Path of Three Hundred” is inspiring to you and others. The goal of the book is just that…through following the expierences of Petah, my wish is that others will feel what he feels as they follow along, thus making the story their own. Katherine seems to channel the story through her personal creative process…amazing to discover what she comes up with as this unfolds…I too look forward to this Path as we all walk it.

      Peace to you,
      Greg

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog. In regards to your book, there is no greater high them demonstrating grace through courageous action.

    Roberta

    • Greg Frucci says:

      Thank you Roberta for your words…

      from your blog you quoted Russell…the quieting of the mind while at sea is a Path to Peace which generates the “high”…
      ““When the mind is silent, and the thoughts, feelings, perceptions, memories with which we habitually identify have fallen away, then what remains is the essence of self, the pure subject without an object. What we than find is not a sense of “I am this” or “I am that,” but just “I am.” (p. 12).”

      wonderful…Peace to you,
      greg
