Hear the Calliope: A sentimental journey on the Earth Ride
"It's odd that storybooks tell us about finding true love, but never mention the commitment to learning one another."
"It's easier to just head for the castle."
"The castle always needs repair."
Born in the fifties only to be re-birthed into The Sixties where drugs, sex, and rock 'n roll can vanquish their childhood onslaughts, Marinda and Stacy walk the voyeur reader through their interwoven similarities of their juvenile memories in order for the onlooker to appreciate the choices they make when confronted with marijuana, LSD and alcohol. For some, what a great trip it's been, but for most it's a conundrum of consternation that fails to be resolved with a trip to the altar.
Reconstruction is the prescription for two men betrayed by their country in an ambush in Southeast Asia, but who can get close enough to these volatile energies to assist? Dale and Riley return to North America with a new government design, and they need a little help from their friends to build enduring relationships that can go the distance; and beyond.
LEGACY: let the games begin
"Today the organism tribe spans this manifest destiny and then some. This time the fight will not be so much with weapons, although there have been and will be mêlées. Now the onslaughts will ensue through law books and media propaganda; law books and media the new and improved dah-mock-crap-see implemented to muddy the waters to confound reason." Satisfaction transmitted to his immediate constituency birthed a retrospective laugh. "Just like in the Bugs Bunny cartoons, we're turning the metaphoric gun barrel back at them and blowing them to smithereens!"
REASON VOID OF REASON: Spirituality honeymoon style
The underlying purpose of these novels is to promote thought. The initial one, Hear the Calliope, lays the characters' foundations in order to build a personal more perfect union sending the reader into LEGACY to build a more perfect government union. The third, REASON VOID OF REASON, opens the door to spiritual sensing followed by the 4th and final novel, BREATHE:NOUMENON that reveals the results of these very real spiritual efforts and the reason why spiritual development is necessary.
"In the world of childhood, snail time movement is the extreme opposite to that of adult time. Synchronously a child moves rapidly, void of thought, into a myriad of contortions that the adult body later wonders how it was ever able to perform such calisthenics briskly, unaware of their feats."
"Time and movement," yawned and stretched to wrap his neck in her single arm embrace in order to draw him close to her. "I never thought about that. Why do you?"
The grande finale that explains just why we are here:
"Since my arrival into this wacky bunch of spiritual entities I've been assembling ideas; thoughts from everyone. Over the years I've compiled four novels that illustrate through story the steps to spiritual flight."
"I thought those books were more like recipe texts."
"Usually, but how can anyone learn metaphysics through a cookbook? What I did was I made the stories pieces to which anyone can relate, even if their lives are altogether different from the main characters within these pages."
"No. But Goddess the individuals you're attempting to reach will misinterpret your assiduous efforts."
"What makes you draw this conclusion? Have you abandoned confidence in the capabilities of the spirit?"
"Not at all; but I do know what's on the perimeter of the tribes. There will be media-controlled judgments that will convolute what participants have accomplished. All of our efforts will be transformed into a ninety minute film that has absolutely nothing to do with collective spiritual performance."
"These stories of the spirits that surmounted time and fear can be judged as well as condemned.
