This is very interesting, Seann. Dreams have been a principal source of inspiration for my "poems" and short stories. I keep a MP3 player with voice recorder under my pillow just in case. Thank you for sharing your perspective. Love and best wishes,

I can see it now, neurosurgeons with ads saying, "We will rewire your brain so that you will lose weight without even thinking." ;-)

A well-written interview of how an author operates. I work in a similar style but not in that genre. In fact, I find much of the mystical stuff quite boring and repetitive older stories, some classic. In the end, most of these stories are about characters… characters and characterization that repeat over and over in literature. Now, something based on Laurel and Hardy catches my interest.

Jehovah's Witnesses - The Happiest People on Earth? (Article) - 11/7/2013 2:49:20 AM
Wow Susan! What a wonderful journey! Now, back in my teen years I was lost and confused because I thought the apostles were all perfect and without sin. I used to look at the statues in the Catholic church and think, "I could never match the perfection of these giants so why even try?" Little did I know the story behind Paul when he was Saul. The love and forgiveness that Christ showed all of us even extended to the most revered apostle that ever lived! So today I think, "If Christ forgave and loved Paul when he was Saul how much could Christ love and forgive me for my sins?" The truth be known, the love of our Lord Jesus is way beyond our comprehension because if we knew Saul today I doubt if there is a person alive that would completely forgive him and forget his transgressions. Our Lord is truly amazing! Thank you Susan! Thank you Jesus! Amen!

I'm so glad that you finally saw the light… And so sorry that it took so long and that so many are caught up in the cult of Jehovah's Witness. I say cult because any belief structure that controls behavior has cult like ramifications. There is always someone in "control" that has a much higher status and manipulates followers while becoming very rich.
I threw off the yoke of religion when I was in graduate school and have been happy not to have it always years. Your article will go a long way in helping others who, like you, are caught up in the tentacles of some "better" way of life that is only demeaning.
Good for you! Bravo!

Oh this is a hot topic – Religion! I have some personal experience with this one. A close friend of mine grew up in a partial Jehovah Witness family. Her mother had joined when she was young. I remember her having to stand outside the classroom every morning when O'Canada played. She also didn't get birthday or Christmas celebrations.
One time she took me to her ‘church’ and I got into an intellectual squabble with her minister. I have since learned it does not do any good to do that. People can choose what they want to believe as long as it does not harm other people.
Closer to home, one of my Dad’s sisters married into a Jehovah Witness family and her three children went through the same situations as my close girlfriend. I felt bad for them when I heard my grandparent's presents would be returned.
Not sure why they could not just accept them as gifts from the grandparents instead of as a “birthday or Christmas gift”. Now having said that, it just goes to show you that you can agree to disagree and still love your family so much. That never changed. I enjoy them and love them!

Two vessels slowly moving in the quiet fog of night, apart.
So sad Seann. Beautiful write.

Very nice poem. It's sweet and beautiful and moving. Just not sure what you mean by the lines "Joy fills me up As you told me" - mainly it's the last part "As you told me" that I don't get.
Thanks for sharing and keep on writing.

It has a song quality to it.
Being in the light, feeling the soul, like life never ends.
I felt it, it is beautiful.

They are with us
Whether in person
Or, in soul.
I believe this to be true. I do not know where I would be now if angels had not come to my aid on several occasions. Thank you, Seann. Love and best wishes,

You see color

It is odd how that is so often the case. That's the way of this world/life it seems. Nicely done, Seann. Love and peace,

Reflective poem...one where we can see thoughts of life and it's soulful meaning of two entwined ...even in memories.....
