His Eyes Were on the Starling

Occasionally, a reader will happen upon a book that is excellent as a bedtime sleeping aid—but not this one. With nearly five score different events, happenings, and adventures with dozens of related and pertinent rabbit trails lending credence to the excursions, the reader will be “thumb ready” to eagerly flip a page, seeking the outcome of the last daring deed of the adventuresome author. Wide is the variety of decent and noble escapades at a time when seat belts were unknown, standing up in the center aisle of the school bus for six miles was permitted, and unwritten laws of the land promoted unlimited homemade adventures and the unshackled variety of down-to-earth fun. Youthful minds, unabashedly, often ran rampant in the myriad of rare adventures that were available to pursue. We attempted many and lived to tell about our assorted and varied shenanigans—most of them with a grin!

Calming Dr  Twitch A Lot

This story of deep wounding and subsequent healing bridges lifetimes. Evelyn is born into a long line of Dutch Barons, who through their greed to keep their land, marry their cousins, rarifying the genetics to produce genius and madness. Evelyn is gifted with both an excess of grey matter and a very sensitive physiology and nervous system. The uprooting of her family through immigration to Canada, and the subsequent poverty, and loss further take their toll, though the family meets hardship with courage and creativity. The strain of failing health, learning problems, and gender complexities culminate in a near death experience. Surprisingly after nearly dying, Evelyn begins to recuperate. Finishing high school, she proceeds directly into Pre-Meds and after mostly single-parenting a baby through Medical school, she graduates. Following her heart to be with a woman, results in the loss of her son. This heartbreak is multiplied after she begins to work as a physician, and realizes that the woman she loves does not want to live. Evelyn invites you to follow her through a painful transformation, causing a spiritual opening that births the artist in her. This opening also leads her to remember past lives, that allow her to see the workings of cause and effect, while encouraging her to move forward revitalized into a whole new life.

Glimpses of the Past

Glimpses of the Past

This manuscript is one of kind, nothing has ever been written like it before, the story begins in 1941 with the first memory I can date and what I remember and explains why I grew up so completely different from the majority of other children that I went to school with. I begin in Petaluma California as a small boy and continue through the years telling of the hardships, struggles and sorrows my family and relatives faced as they worked and camped in the different orchards on Highway 99 or the 101 and barely making enough money to feed them and buy gas to the next job. Then during the winter each year Dad worked on chicken ranches or such until the spring when we would start all over again. That happened until the summer of 1949 when my family settled in Yountville California and where the story ends when I joined the Navy at age seventeen on the 18th of January 1955.
