The wolf howled at the moon, but shall you ...chase it ..own it ...have it: human soul?
Article by Marc Aupiais
Ice melted, and slowly glittered, then sprinkled, and rippled: then flew from the surface, and as it did: there was ...sound ...noise, symphony of deadly scream.
The wolves howled: ...focussed on the moon.
And as they howled, the dripping blood stood still: the hunt had begun ...when had it ever ceased?
And yet: as we hear the fatal, primitive sound, some part wants to join in: howl at the moon: and shout at "Reality"; our God, that background on which all material exists.
Yet, what makes us diffeent, us few who seek the "Catholic" truth, what makes us unique: utterly different: we seek not only to howl at the "Moon" as most do: but rather: to fly up to be upon it, on our goodness alone, and on the moon's ...effect, and "truth" ...you see
... we who seek the near impossible: become better at all that is normal: ...sounding our reward:
the moon has been to earth: and we howl at him: our moon and sun: and we seek him out:
who died for us:
on a cross!
And yet, what of you: will you do the ...impossible,
... will you claim your reward, and jump, and catch the moon?

Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?Attorney; Writer; Enthusiast of Germanic, Celtic, & Romance languages, with a love of exploring law, speech, legal systems, linguistics, sociology, & int. news.
I have always been fascinated with the law. By chance, it happens to be my field. I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa, as of 28 January 2016.
It was my fellow students' suggestions, in the final years of school, that I might be suited to a career in law, along with long discussions with a friend of mine - which imbued me with a keen interest in the history, language, and laws of the Roman Empire - that made me realise that law was the choice of career that best suited the ideas and plans I had for the future. I enrolled in an LLB degree at Wits University and subsequently graduated Bachelor of Laws a few years later.
I completed, with distinction, the Law Society's Legal Education and Development (L.E.A.D) School for Legal Practice program. I am pleased to have had the privilege of having served at two very different firms during my articles, giving me a much broader experience of work in the profession.
I believe success requires not just hard work, but intelligence, perseverance, humility, integrity, ingenuity, diligence, a strong work ethic, and the courage to request the assistance of those better-versed in a matter, or field.
I am passionate about the place of my birth, South Africa and am proud to be a patriot and citizen of this diverse and beautiful nation. I consider myself a global citizen and keep connections in a number of different nations across the world. Communicating with people from other cultures, I believe, has aided me to have a more open-minded approach in so far as how I see and interact with the world.
The cultures and legal systems, morals, and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the world, are subjects I love to research. I extensively enjoy reading and writing, and in keeping abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be quite useful.
Law & Career
Law firms I have worked at include: DL Wilson Attorneys in Randburg North, Desmond Barry Attorneys in Morningside, Sandton, Botha & Sutherland Attorneys in Aukland Park, Johannesburg. I currently work as a Consulting Attorney for Serina Govender Inc. Attorneys-at-Law. My professional website will tell you more about me, where you might want to subscribe to my professional blog . I also edit and write for the SACNS, write breaking news for a multinational service called InfosNews Breaking News, and act as a correspondent for the popular french language Les News service.
