The Sins of Boggy Creek, my second book published by Publish America, is now available for ordering.

It began innocently enough, as so many tragic occurrences do. Just a bubbling underground spring, pushing itself up through layers of centuries of accumulated silt, rock, and sand. Bursting free, it made its way, joyfully exultant at its victory over the obstacles it encountered. Soon, it formed a path for itself, as the constantly flowing waters carved out banks and grew, becoming stronger, taking in more land.

In time, giant trees, hundreds of years in the growing, felt the weakening of their foundation as the soil was eroded from beneath their roots. Holding on as long as possible, tenaciously clinging to an upright position, they reached for the bright light and nourishing sunshine. The battle was eventually lost, for the little stream continued to flow, serenely unaware of its destructive qualities, even as it satisfied the thirst and need of the land through which it flowed. Its path was soon measured in miles and there is no doubt that it would have reached the river, pouring itself into greatness. It was not to be. Its carefree beginning, full of sparkling potential for future generations, was cut down to a stagnated trickle. In the midst of its joyful splashing journey, it found a barrier it could not penetrate. So, it became a boggy mire, its crystal waters polluted by the filthy mud and muck, standing still, caught by circumstances beyond its capabilities to change. That which was born to great potential, honor and fruitfulness ended as a depository for unclean spirits and numerous ghastly tragedies. A veritable graveyard that claimed its victims indiscriminately, without mercy or remorse.

So it is with the lives of men. Born in innocence and purity, bubbling with joyful life, each tiny human being has the potential for fruitfulness and honor. Only with steadfast determination in pursuing the path to greatness can deterring forces be overcome. Only by refusing to allow obstacles to stagnate the flow of the river that is the spirit within, can a man save himself from becoming a depository for unclean spirits.
