Time can take the edge off the pain and allow good feelings to put the mind at rest, so you can feel the spirits more easily. Patrick

We may never know why some things do happen to us. But, I believe there is always a reason.
A Sad Christmas Event (Short Story) - 12/22/2008 11:10:09 AM
Sorry doesn't mean much when you have had your guts ripped out of you. My brother died about two weeks before my birthday about a year and a half ago. I know who "Mother New Years" was...children don't go to heaven alone, they are escorted. You may think I am just telling you this, but the account is in my book under my other pseudonym, B. Erin Wylde in the book Where Did I Go?, I was in the middle of writing that book and he died, so I had to write about that too. I had a dream a week before he died, that he was shot in the right side of the chest, no assailant, just me, and his son, who he raised alone, were there. I knealt down beside him crying as he died. Then the dream shifted, and I was in my mother's house, the house we grew up in, and he walks in with his son like nothing has happened, he is bleeding from the wound, but I didn't care, he was alive, and that is the way dreams work anyway. I ran to hug him, he hugged me, then pushed me back, holding my arms, looking at me with that movie look that the news to come wasn't good. I had said "YOU'RE ALIVE!"...smiling...He returned my smile, but it wasn't a happy one, and said.."The doctors just think it going to take me a little bit longer to die.
I woke up, terrified since I had never dreamt about my brother before, and asked my mom was he ok. She said yes, then "Who's pregnant?" because in the south, that is a wives tale.
I told her no one...then exactly one week later, he was admitted in the am with pneumonia, two hours later on a respirator, then, his heart stopped, they brought him back, again and agian,until he was on pure drip of adrenaline. I am a Med tech and knew the pathologist who did the autopsy. He had a toxic very deadly strain of Group A Strep that killed him in a day and a half. His heart stopped because his adrenaline gland was infected and when that happens you are gone. So they told me to say goodbye, on a cell phone, I screamed for him to come back...I loved him so much...but I was six hundred miles away, and all I could hear were the machines and his greedy new wife (another story, she threw out my brother's fourteen year old son only weeks after the death, trying to steal his inheritance)singing "you are my sunshine" in his other ear. We left for the carolinas in the am, but they were worried about the toxins so they creamated him as soon as possible. I never got to say goodbye. There are no more birthdays for me. When my sister called to tell me he was being taken to the ER, she said "oh, it's nothing, just congestion in his RIGHT LUNG, where the gunshot was in my dream. I knew, I don't know how, but I knew he would be dead by nightfall. 850 people came to his funeral.
If anything were to happen to my son or daughter, I don't think I could be as strong as you two are....the loss of my brother at 45, me 41, is almost killing me.
A Sad Christmas Event (Short Story) - 12/12/2008 7:12:40 PM
The answer my friend is in the people around you who care about you. No one can comfort you or your sister enough for these unfortunate losses...but know that we all share your sorrow.
All the best this season,
A Sad Christmas Event (Short Story) - 12/6/2008 12:47:12 PM
Life is what we are given. As short and as long as we are given. Let us not question how long we have nor detest the ailments of the aged or the premature deaths of so many in accidents, illness or in fateful experiences. This is what makes us human and the pain is great. For those who have died they suffer no more but turn our sorrow to life as we have it.
A Sad Christmas Event (Short Story) - 12/5/2008 5:30:44 PM
I think the answer is as simple as one word: Love. Not he kind that's bandied around with little care, but the unconditional love of God and two boys who smile and entertain angels now.
I've lost two cousins, and a sister-in-law, the pain doesn't go away, or the memories, but grace seeps into our grief and helps us find peace and blessings again.
Love and God Bless
A Sexy Spinster and the Bishop (Short Story) - 7/27/2008 6:33:13 AM
After reading "A Sexy Spinster and the Bishop," I feel quite well qualified for full-time employment in a pretzel factory, either that or perhaps I could take a job as a life guard, since I'm now an expert on the social philosophy of "Still water runs the deepest."
However, my speculation now turns to E. T. Waldron, my nonsmoking dear lady who lost her loving poodle. Evidently, she's turned her passions to religious literature and seems bent on a career extolling hellfire and damnation.
I can't say I'll pray for you, Eileen, because most likely I'll be calling on you for technical advice in the novel I'm working on now, "Beyond Innocence" and how I might best keep my heroine, a bodacious young Mexican nun, out of bed with her many lecherous admirers until the book's spellbinding climax. "Climax," you say? Oh, I've got your attention, have I?
You naughty girl, you!
(Not that I'm interested, you know, but have you got any more stories like this lurking about?)
A Yorkie for Christmas! (Short Story) - 7/5/2008 6:31:45 PM
Very lovely story.
I have a Yorkie that's my very best friend and, actually, unless it's too hot out or I'm going someplace that might not be safe, Harry -- that's his name -- Harry always goes with me.
Your story brought tears to my eys.
Ginnie's sad sex story (Short Story) - 6/19/2008 3:26:43 AM
This is extremely sad and I hope Ginnie will share the experience with other women who desperately need help. And as the torch of hope is passed on from one woman to another God will keep rewarding you with his blessings. You are a guiding light to those hearts that have been plunged in a difficult situation by poverty and destitution. If such a thing is happening in America what would you think of other countries like Somalia where eating once a day is a lyxury only affordable by those with an income. GBQ

You surprised me with this twist in the plot. Nicely done! Love and Hugs~
Bar Scene Part Three (Short Story) - 3/21/2008 1:08:43 AM
I agree with the message towards the end - lies lead to more lies and it's difficult to keep everything straight. I have a brother-in-law that lives by lies. I never know what to believe! Well done:)
Bar Scenes -Part Two (Short Story) - 3/21/2008 12:46:46 AM
Sounds like a very uncomfortable situation. I love how you set the scene here - mob members, wife & mistress, and a busy dining room. Great work!

A Sad Christmas Event (Short Story) - 2/18/2008 9:17:37 AM
Bless your heart and I hope you find meaning to the name. Losing a child is far more greater pain than losing anyone else in the family. We are suppose to outlive children as adults, so I can relate with your pain. God bless you and your family. I hope you can find some kind of comfort in knowing that your nephew is no longer in pain.
A Yorkie for Christmas! (Short Story) - 1/20/2008 4:52:02 PM

Part Two- Clare's Wartime Journal (Short Story) - 1/18/2008 2:58:24 AM
Sounds like things worked out as best as possible. I like how the end stresses the fact that war reaches beyond the land it is fought on. Well done:)
Clare's Wartime Journal (Short Story) - 1/18/2008 2:37:12 AM
This story pulled me right in. Such an innocent start for these two characters. Great surprise at the end of this part. I have to find out how things go from here!
Halloween Mystery (Short Story) - 1/11/2008 12:56:37 AM
I love stories like this. A sad ending but still a thriller with unexplained events. Great job building suspense along the way!

A wonderful write. Sure we suffer through hard times so we can distinguish the difference and then rejoice! Amen
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 7/24/2009 3:09:51 PM
You have pretty much summed everything up here Eileen, without forgivness we are lost forever. Amen to this wonderful write, blessings, Holly
Uncanny Circumstances (Article) - 5/13/2008 3:18:21 PM
I have been through lots of things in my life , but yours has been like a roller coaster. Looking back , I'm sure you are amazed about how you survived it all. They say things happen for a reason , but sometimes its very hard to understand why. I'm sorry about the loss of your sister. It must have been terrible for you..Blessings.....M
(I'm sure God was watching over you)
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 5/5/2008 11:27:11 AM
Being able to forgive some one , lets your heart open to the goodness of life. You are not carrying a burden with you. I've endured a lot of "hurt" in my life .By forgiving, I'm able to move forward and put it aside. Great article......M

Suffering (Article) - 4/9/2008 12:25:15 PM
You said it all with this writing, and it is helpful to releive our suffering. I like the way you presented this with bible verses to match.
Dreams,Illusions,and Fantasy (Article) - 4/5/2008 12:26:10 PM
I don't dream much at night, or maybe I just never remember them. But I do have a few "day-dreams"...or would they count as "fantasy"? Whichever, they keep my muse fortified!
Good write, Eileen!!!
Dreams,Illusions,and Fantasy (Article) - 4/2/2008 3:02:22 PM
"Illusion; anything that deceives the mind or senses". "Dream; imaginings while asleep, involuntary and may be a mixture of real and imaginary characters, places or events". "Fantasy; the creative power of the imagination. An image or dream, created by the imagination". The lines of defintion blur with considerable, applicable, overlap regarding a cognitive or non-cognitive event. Does this help, or make understanding more difficult? Jon Michael Willey
Dreams,Illusions,and Fantasy (Article) - 4/2/2008 3:56:40 AM
The difference between, explained in great detail - thank you, Eileen, I learn a lot from reading you. Well done.

Lessons I Learned About Lust (Article) - 3/8/2008 3:45:16 PM
Good thoughtful piece, and it’s nice to know a Biblical scholar or two. I used to have some ordained ministers to chat with about this stuff, but then I got out of broadcast journalism and lost touch with ‘em. Welcome back, Bubba. You’ll do me good.
It's kinda neat, the way the great world faiths interact, most often agreeing, sometimes putting emphasis on different aspects of spiritually correct behavior. The Buddha's Eightfold Path steers us away from fleshly things just as Jesus warned us not to store up wealth on Earth, etc. I often wonder if Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Zoroaster and the rest of the modern faiths were promulgated by the same Guy, appearing in different places at different times and tailoring the message to whomever was around to listen.
A Hard Climb (Article) - 1/26/2008 5:29:20 PM
I veryh much enjoyed your analogy here, of the mountain. As someone who climbs, I can appreciate the subject, even if its intent is allegorical. There is an old Zen Koan that has always been a favorite of mine: "You can't fall off a mountain." Puzzling at first, since we instinctively think of how traumatic falling off a cliff (letting go of a relationship) can be, after a further bit of reflection it dawns on us that a cliff is not a mountain (only a very small part of it), and in fact since we cannot easily define where a mountain begins or ends, it is therefore 'impossible' to fall of a mountain! By an extention of the existential logic at work here, one can argue that relationships are also extrmeley difficult to think of in terms of absolute beginnings and endings. QED: You can't fall off a mountain of that sort, either. Whether one considers the subject logically, or through rather broad Zen interpretation, I enjoyed your work here. Mahalo for sharing these thoughts!
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 1/8/2008 8:55:40 AM
I know all about learning to forgive Mother. I had to learn that lesson, and it took a lifetime. I know for a truth that learning a lot sooner would not have changed my mother, but forgiving is about changing me, not the one I forgive. You provide some great food for thought in this article.

To Christian Denominations,, Our Downfall (Article) - 12/30/2007 12:34:26 PM
Dear Eileen, It is the most tenacious article, which says things as they are. I admire you for your courage. I came to the United State as I believed in the country of hope without wanting to change its culture, its nature, and its religions, in one word, the way it was, speaking English. I feel today as you feel. Americans, as I knew them, were our savior soldiers who came to save us, the French, starting with the French North Africa. I can see today the minority that you are talking about, trying to change America into the Islam, into a Spanish country, and many others in the name of freedom and our constitution which we love and respect. Continue in your endeavor. Happy New Year, Emile
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 12/14/2007 7:02:01 PM
Wonderful message in this important article. Thanks for sharing it. Cheers
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 12/11/2007 7:44:59 PM
I say this to Walt Hardester...
Forgiveness is the best revenge. I forgive everyone for in my heart to harbor any ill feeling is a heavier load than forgiveness.
Forgive,,,say it to yourself. It relieves stress and the smiles grow within and then...out.
I love your words Eileen and I practice forgiveness everyday. Our Creator does as well.
FORGIVENESS (Article) - 12/11/2007 7:37:52 PM

A vivid poetic dream that will take you wherever you focus upon.
Focus on blessings and blessings will surely flow. This I know.

Springs Better Half (Poetry) - 1/26/2013 8:10:43 PM
It is that silence between the colorless end of Winter and beginning of earth renewal that keeps our souls awaiting the beauty of Spring. I, like many, wait each year with anticipation for each colorful blossom.
What a precious write!

Wonderful job,of keeping the characteristics of the English sonnet in tact; that takes talent,and you have proven you have what it takes in the writing of this beautiful Shakespearean Christmas sonnet. I love it!

The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 9/3/2012 4:22:38 PM
I'm not a dream interpreter, Eileen, so can't explain what your dream is. VERY rarely do I remember what I dream. Unless they're nightmares. Vividly penned and well done.
It's been far too long since I stopped in -- forgive me?
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 5/2/2012 1:52:57 AM
daydreaming taken to the next level!
sounds like a great beginning for a novel...
save that magical sand and camel hair- it might come in handy.

The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/23/2012 6:35:27 AM
Eileen, you have entered a mysterious place,dreamland. I sometimes have difficulty finding the terminal point between reality and a dream that was particularly vivid and lasting. Dreams, they blend into our conscious world too seamlessly at times. I wish you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Now that's an interesting story! Or was it a dream. I use weird dreams like that is a source for my stories. I think I have a camel hair coat somewhere that I can loan you. ;-)
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 4:02:47 PM
Hihgly creative Eileen, this is spun precisely in the same manner as the oddest of dreams and yet I know it must lead somewhere even if it is out of your control. Beautiful.
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 1:43:19 PM
This is startling and yet I can identify - not with the detail, but the sensations of having been "turned upside down and shaken about" in my dreaming, as Amber says, waking up feeling physically wrung out. But then, my dreams never make literal sense anyway! I like how you leave us with the notion that an ACTUAL event or journey took place - sometimes we can believe it when we wake up with moondust in our beds! Our sleeptime is a mystery and you have painted one potential aspect of it here. Intriguing! xx
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 11:53:35 AM
Quite an adventurous dream, sometimes we wake up more tired than when we went to sleep, this could explain why...
Love light and peace,

Hmmm, Tiggs, sounds like a Heffalump spiked your coffee.
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 1:46:30 AM
what i find fascinating about dreams
is how scenes switch suddenly without warning
and blend and separate..can be frustrating but
also intriguing how the 'process works'
and here, Eileen, you've captured a great deal of
all of that
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 1:34:49 AM
Uh, my friend, that sounds an awful like acid flashback to me. You are finally having them. They all said we would.
The Unexplained! (Poetry) - 4/18/2012 6:11:21 PM
dreams have a tendency to carry over their mystery into the waking world ...
an intriguing dream that definitely stimulated the synapses ...

Eileen, to this observer spring has no bad half as it redecorates earth with unparalleled beauty - warms the flesh and ushers in the promise of rebirth - "Springs Better Half" for me is season long - not only does it make "our soul sing" it choreographs the lifeblood of promise - thank you for awakening my senses along with the revival carried on dewy spring mornings - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Oh Eileen...it is our beautiful Sacramento Valley springtime weather that causes the heart to gush forth through this wondrous imagery.

Spring's bounty is always a joy to behold. My narcissus was always the first. We have to plant camellia and begonia to see them bloom.

Springs Better Half (Poetry) - 4/13/2012 4:11:28 PM
This reads with the effect of a 'flash mob,' which name doesn't match the delight of people surprising the general public with a pre-planned musical treat. To me this was a botanical 'flash bloom.' Thanks, I feel pretty. ~~ Diana

Beautiful. I could never write a poem such as this. That doesn't mean that I can't appreciate one when I read it. You made the colors so bright and cheerful it put a smile on this old dour mug.

Dreams are wishful thinking with added oomph. I especially like the way you made the point that it is impossible "trying to / please, what can't be pleased." Therein lies the the true nature of a stress-filled life.

Yes indeedy, our earthly orgiastic experiences are a physical picture of the spiritual sublime, I think, Eileen.. and vice versa. The two are but one, especially when all the elements of our being are forged together in that sense of climax. I love the way you have thought about the shape of your poem here; it really does look like an explosion on the page! :)) Moths are such a good illustration of this, flying into the burn as they do. xx

Superb, Eileen. You are such a star-trooper and I really do believe you are more "at home" in the further reaches of the cosmos as you have such an evident affinity with it. Yes, we could indeed learn a few lessons from the unity of the celestial community - especially in the "live and let live" departments and the "just being" as opposed to our human proneness to "doing". As always, you are in your natural element when you write of such things. Hope you're in the pink! :)) xx

Galactic thoughts. It was interesting to see how many times you referenced images that are only created by looking at the cosmos through the filter of our atmosphere. For example, “shimmering,” is caused by atmospheric fluctuations.

IF (Poetry) - 3/11/2012 10:05:43 AM
This is truly beautiful and wonderfully stated, Eileen; one of your very best for its heart-stopping poignancy and emotional candour. The bottom line is that we yearn for honesty and integrity in our most significant of relationships - yet fear it at the same time, perhaps. But this is a fearless foray - and not confrontational, and that's what makes it so effective. There are those we carry within the minute folds and creases of our heart and hippocampus - and they are necessarily the ones from which we want to see our own selves reflected back. Yet, as you say, what is their reality - and ours? Does "the you I think I know" reflect a me that I might recognise if I exist at all within him/her? All our hearts and minds are spinning kaleidoscopes like mirror balls, forever changing yet a constant mass. We could debate the pulse and rays of this poem line by line for hours... Thank you for presenting it to us in such a thought-provoking way. You rock! :)) xx

Do you know yourself well enough, to know and see yourself in him, when you do see yourself? The picture we paint of ourselves, is not always the picture others see of us. Truth of heart and mind, what a novel concept, it would be refreshing if most of the human species found it, and practiced it. Pure at heart, pure love, unconditional, maybe from a pooch. Bless ya! Hugs!
IF (Poetry) - 3/11/2012 6:14:53 AM
This is so spot on, Eileen. How many times have we wondered if that person who haunts us and seems to live within us at all times feels or carries any part of us with them, also. There are so many parallels and the sense of that person being ingrained in us so strongly that it is more than difficult to believe that they too don't feel us as we feel them. It certainly would be a little scary to ask or to venture inside their mind because what if that "if" proved to be less than what we were hoping for.

Love is such a kaleidoscope of variety in both its giving and receiving - and many layered as well as many splendoured! When things are going well, we love its multiplicity to explore and marvel at; on the downturn of a divergence or loss of togetherness, then it's a very different story: what was once a "beautiful, well-oiled machine of imagination and wonder" becomes a heap of clanking, crashing gears which can only fall apart. And how we suffer for it. To me this is also a beautiful example of how important the corporeal element is to a sustained relationship of love - perhaps particularly so to us women for whom physical expression and bodily contact can be a very real need rather than a mere sexual want. This really strikes a chord, Eileen. xx

I hope this isn't a recent experience, but only a bitter memory. It's the essence of what makes poets write… The sadness of loss and misery of defeat.

i can relate but what really hurts is when you've been led to believe there is a commitment and just when you need them, you find out there is none. thanks for sharing.

A very sad poem indeed, Sis. And I hope it's just a poem, and that you are doing well. You are missed by many here on A.D.

ET, I understand what you are saying, men our age are very much afraid to commit..I have to believe that because of the age we are, and the amount of time a man was married, and then after years of that marraige things just fall apart. When they become single again, it is as if they go back to being single when they were single before their marraige, hence, the non commital stage. We are sorta shit out of luck at our age, because men just don't want to settle down again, so they drift from one woman to another, seeking comfort but not commitment..I am really tired of the whole dating thing, so I choose to not have a man in my life..It's been three years now, and I am fine with it. I have a lot of friends, and beautiful grandsons to keep me busy. If a special man decides to make that commitment, I surely will respond..Until then, I am happy, single, and doing my own thing. I wish you well and much happiness dear lady.
Peace, love and light,

How sad is right. You read my memoir. I was that man for many years. I'm sorry for it, and I am not that man now, but it doesn't e3rase the wrong done.

When we don't know where love is... the imagination helps! A black orchid, a black hole... still looking for it! :)
