I think you have a great start for a Mystery/thriller. You have a few typo's which can be fixed easily. If you do an expansion on this thought, I would like to see it, if you post it here let me know :-)
The Space Traveler (Short Story) - 3/11/2003 8:24:05 PM
Boy this is short!
I hate to tell you, but this is *not* a fantasy. It's sci fi. According to the former critique group I was in, a fantasy is anything involving sword and scorery, knights, ladies, lords or royalty, trolls, dwarfs. A good example of a fantasy is Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series and "The Hobbit."
This seems more like a poem than a short story.

What an intriguing story line! I hope the book has sold well! I've always been interested in the Bermuda Triangle and have read about it. We lived in Miami for quite a few yaers. We never ventured toward it with our boat...M
Heavens rebellious day (Article) - 9/24/2003 2:35:24 PM
Seperation of church and state does not mean the coming of the anitchrist...the devil...lucifer...mephistoplese...diabales...methostopholese or whatever name I may have forgtten that you or anyone else may choose to call him, IT does mean that our politicians, local, state and federal will no longer be able to hide behind their so called proverbial governmental holy cloths. In my poem "Who Appointed You My Guard...I Did Not" I am making a statement/political rant against the farcical marriage of church and state. I for one am sick and tired of politicians and priests hiding behind one another and protecting one another...
1. Children are still getting raped by men of the cloth and the government seemingly sweeps it under the carpet with the vaticans help and contribution thus church and state unite.
2. Catch a senator, president or state representative doing a bit of the nasty thing with someone they shouldn't and Oh my I need to confess and repent and again things get swept under the carpet and forgotten.
3.When it comes to the political powerplays of government like what is going on in California...hmmmm all of a sudden the man is showing how he carries around a prayer card and now the polls or tides are changing...Ha and Hmpft not by the REAL voting people I think!
4.A personal example...my grandfater who was F.B.I (Full Blooded Indian) one day in a public school was beaten bloody on his left hand by the school teacher who was a supposed very devout catholic lady who then proceeded to call him a unclean filthy heathen who needed to conform to The good old United States of Americas ways...and all this because he was Native American and wrote with his left hand!???
I could go on and on with this list of examples but what it all boils down to is there does need to be a seperation of church and state, not only in the government and church but also in our hearts and minds! The two make a deadly combination as well as a not so very democratic combination and The United States of America is supposed to be a democracy after all is it not!???
Good Article though on your views Leslie, and hopefully you perhaps are not offended my views!

Being a Lea Countian like yourself you have captured the spirit of this area well. A well done character sketch. This is someone who doesn't get written about and this makes them larger than life. Well done.

lovely tribute to your love as a couple..
To find the road (Poetry) - 2/27/2005 4:14:09 AM
Leslie, I enjoyed reading your “To find the road” though I am no longer a believer in religion, but I do wish all well that need something to believe in. On TV here in England a few nights ago there was a programme about the commandments asking viewers to vote on the old and any proposed new ones. The over whelming vote was for: Do onto others as you would have others do to yourself, if only we all could live by that the people of the world could maybe find peace.

To Gaze out (Poetry) - 10/2/2003 8:56:22 PM
A strong message. We live in a crazy world and crazy time -- and those searching for Truth, Values, Faith and Love are becoming few and fewer. Thanks for standing out and dancing to the beat of your own drumme and encouraging others to do the same. You give food for thought in this write, my friend!
Social Clikk (Poetry) - 9/29/2003 11:28:08 AM
Those looking for self-pity won't find it here. Thanks for the reminder that we all fail to realize: we are the ones who can help ourselves and are responsible for our own actions and behavior and situation. Keep up the good work.
To Gaze out (Poetry) - 9/29/2003 9:56:42 AM
That's right we must, it is because we have not fully understood our own existence yet.

Beautiful Work Leslie and a bit late but also Congrats!
Earn thy Wings (Poetry) - 5/31/2003 6:01:29 PM
I've not flown much in my life and this gives me a wonderful sense of the what it feels like to fly. Still I'm not sure what the experience of earning one's wings is really like. I'm legally blind so I can't fly ever so I'd like to know what it is like to fly. Good emotions reflected here though.
Earn thy Wings (Poetry) - 5/31/2003 11:06:11 AM
Ah, can identify. I was working on my pilots license when I developed vertigo along with Meniere's Syndrome. Now airlines don't even like to see me coming. Yet I traveled for years on international flights.
A good poem of your experience.

Very strong and haunting images. Excellent.
The Winds of Night (Poetry) - 5/26/2003 6:43:00 AM

You describe it perfectly!
The Winds of Night (Poetry) - 5/21/2003 8:25:46 PM
This definitely captures my attention. I like the vivid imagery that expresses facing the obstacles of life. For you this is different stylistic ... glad to see you pushing the envelope and improving as a writer. A mispelt word in this line: to the suttle sigh: You want subtle I think.
Good job, Les.
