"I Joy Over Thee With Singing"
1 part / 1 page
,
updated Dec 28, 2013

  In this poem, God is singing over His child as He offers hope and healing to the abuse survivor. The restoration He can bring to a shattered life turns darkness to light, ashes to beauty, and heart-shreds to golden threads.

1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie and the Paradox of Land Claims
1 part / 28 pages
,
updated Oct 22, 2016

In the late 1800s the Euro-Americans were expanding West under the idea of Manifest Destiny. The notion of Manifest Destiny gave Euro-Americans the false assumption that as the superior race, Providence had blessed them with the territory and resources of North America and the indigenous peoples who were there mellinia before them be damned. After the Civil War, some of the Union soldiers were sent to the Great Plains to passisfy the Lakota Nation (Sioux) who were not easily passified. During the 1860s, Red Cloud's War made clear to the U.S. Cavalry that peace with the Lakota and other Great Plains tribes would be a less expensive alternative. Red Cloud's War was the decisive factor in proving to the U.S. Cavalry that they had no quarter with the Lakota Nation when it came to War. President Ulysses Grant sent his commissioners out over the next year to gather the various signatures of the prominent leaders of the Lakota Nation and Great Plains tribes to establish peace in what became known as the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty. Several famous prominent leaders such as Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse refused to sign the treaty, remembering how the U.S. had broken the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty and treaties established with other American Indians. Shortly after being signed and ratified, Lt Colonel George A. Custer discovered gold in the Black Hills. Outlined in the treaty, trespass passing onto Lakota territory, which included the Black Hills, was a violation. Nevertheless, the Grant and several high-ranking members of the U.S. cavalry immediately set about stealing the Black Hills. In the process, the 1868 Treaty of Ft. Laramie Treaty was ripped apart, stomped on, and set afire, violated in the most audacious of ways. Years later, the Lakota Nation took the U.S. Government to court until the members were finally able to establish the Supreme Court to establish that the Black Hills  " was a taking" initiated on behalf of the United States government. The U.S. has awarded the Lakota Nation $350 million, the largest monetary amount ever awarded to an Indian Nation by the U.S. Court. Yet, the Lakota want no part of the deal and, currently, it rests in the Federal Treasury, accruing interest. Instead, all eight of the Lakota bands have insisted they want returned to them some of the federally owned land of the Black Hills, which the government retains thousands of acres, some financial recompense, and other items. This is not a tall order to ask and is quite do-able.

On a cold and stormy night Mrs Emily Featherbone stood at the edge of her bedroom balcony overlooking the sea. Goosebumps licked her porcelain skin beneath a translucent pearl slip and the wind danced in her long red hair. She felt a sudden rush as the waves crashed beneath her, spraying a fine mist into the air, soaking her right through...

Trapped in a world controlled by the devil and haunted by the memories of her past Larah Salvatori must find a way to survive in a place where unmarked human survivors are rare and the mindless decomposing bodies of the Undead haunt the world. At night the Marked rise from their lairs and stalk the streets searching for survivors to add to their herds. Survival is hard, but for Lars it's different. Lars, as the only Marked still perfectly human, is the only one the survivors believe can save them. Is she really their saviour? Or does the Devil have more tricks up his sleeve than anyone ever imagined?

A Cautionary Tale
2 parts / 29 pages
,
updated Nov 20, 2013

This is a real love story where the man leaves the woman with the devastating words...I need to go for the real gold...She is completely shattered....She completely falls apart... she comes back together a lot stronger....  She knows he is chasing fool's gold...he is on a mission... he has a completely false image of himself...he doesn't yet know who he is... The reader is led along....did he really do that, you must be kidding, women wouldn't do that surely?....It is told in a conversational way as though gossiping over coffee.... The time-line is jumped around in as QB (the woman) remembers different scenes that she has played with Hat (the man). It's a cautionary tale of how when man has a false image of himself, acts with self interest reasons only, is afraid of his own shadow... he destroys all that has been good and beautiful in his life, and rather than face his inner demons, he demonises others... The woman is called QB...the reason is revealed at the end...what the nick name stands for. The man is called Hat because QB looks across at a photo of him and sees him wearing his favourite hat...she can't bear to look at Hat now....Hat is just how she always thinks of him... It is a Bridget Jones style book, but with observations of human behaviour and how the human psyche works...and also how when man strives for spiritual knowledge he often loses sight of living a good life...     .
