|I wonder if you realise how brilliant this piece really is?
His room in the bloody tower is really quite something.
But I adore your take on this!

|vivid and brilliantly constructed historical version ...|

|When innuendo rules the acts of men portray them for what they are, fools. History, history,! Who rules the perception of a man better than the popular versions of history? Truth is always inconvenient to those in power. Gene, your elegant reminder of the facts regarding Sir Walter and his ilk have refreshed my lust for ferreting out he truth in all matters. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|... I like history like how you do tell it, Gene. Were he and Lizzie really lovers? That might account for why his widow carried his head in a basket - as trophy, rather than out of maddening grief... Mind you, if ER had disappeared without trace when he laid his cape over that puddle, she might have been attributed with discovering Australia! It's literally mindbending the wealth of brainpower that gathered together at such a time. As Gina has said, I wonder who will prove to be their modern-day equivalent? Some complete basket-cases, I'll be bound! :)) xx|

|You brought me right to those times of such simplicity. Things were black and white and the rich were richer and the poor were poorer, kinda sounds like what's happening again in this country...History surely does repeat itself.......
Much peace, love and light,

|I love this, Gene. It makes me wonder what secret group is meeting now - for what egregious ideas and discussion would they be ridiculed and mocked? Ideas that will prove themselves valid in forthcoming generations? I love your intellect - its depth and amazing scope - not to mention your deft way of expressing complexities in relatable and eloquent terms.|

|excellent write. This is the way history should be taught. Whispers from the tower, and baskets. -Morgan|

|...held onto the head as long as she could, there
was where he was, in his head...and your intellectual
understanding, Gene, is inside mine and i'm so much
the better and wiser for it.
It's high time history was written with such panache
and handed out in our classrooms.
Such a calm delivery of a volatile time
and radical, real thinkers.

|i believe he was implicated in the main plot hatched in spain to remove king james from the throne in much the same way erwin rommel was implicated in the plot to kill hitler. this is a great piece, full of intrigue and historical fact.|

|Quite the story, Gene. Thanks for sharing it. I learned something new. Well done and may God bless.|

|Didn't know the widow toted old Walter's head around in a basket. Have to think about that some. Didn't know much of what you wrote about either, Gene. Very informative and entertaining. And all this time I thought he was the one who discovered, and named, Sir Walter Raleigh pipe tobacco. Drat.|
