Aliens in Roanoke

From the Front Porch I see an alien calling card, a faux crop circle on my yard.

grass circles

For those of you, who are unfamiliar with a crop circle, tamped down wheat, corn, oats, rice, barley, rye, tobacco, or even weeds, a pattern of elaborate design is formed. Sometimes the patterns are simple circles or elaborate geometric shapes.

Celtic-Knot Crop Circle A formation at West Kennett in Wiltshire that looks like a Celtic symbol called the Triskell.

See how the area is so clean it appears to have been created by a machine? The shoots are bent, simply laying down and sometimes continue to grow as normal. Crop circles have been occurring since 1500’s as picture in artwork of a “mowing devil.” John Rand Capron, Surrey, England, described a field of wheat appearing to have been blown by cyclonic wind action, forming circles.
“But the phenomenon didn’t gain attention until 1980, when a farmer in Wiltshire County, England, discovered three circles, each about 60 feet (18 meters) across, in his oat crops. UFO researchers and media descended on the farm, and the world first began to learn about crop circles.” (How stuff works)

In the 1990’s crop circles became a tourist attraction with more elaborate crop circles appearing in layered patterns clockwise and counterclockwise. They can range from a few inches to hundreds of feet across. Not only do crop circles appear in Indiana, but England, Australia, Japan, and India.

When do they typically appear? April to September. My yard art was September 11, 2013.

So why do crop circles appear?

Outside a visit from aliens, one theory is that they are a result of wind, whirling burst of air jet to the ground…kind of like the dust devils in my living room. Some researchers believe the patterns are created by earth and electromagnetic radiation, because people standing inside a crop circle have felt strange sensations, dizziness and tingling. Finally, human hoax. You can have your own crop circle created. Go to http://www.circlemakers.com.

Have tiny aliens appeared in my front yard, leaving a little message just for my enjoyment?

As an author writing paranormal, fantasy, and suspense I like to imagine miniature aliens left a message for me, but more than likely due to the drought in my area, it’s just dead grass.
What are your thoughts?

Have you visited a crop circle site?

Horse Rescued by Marine

Pippa’s Rescue
Skogul, Valkyrie leader of the first squad in Valhalla, is supposed to offer immortality to former Marine Basil Vanguard. Too bad watching science fiction on the big screen is more fun. But if her assignment slips through the cracks, will Odin himself take a hand?

Basil wants justice. Determined to find the man who turned on his own unit and caused the deaths of many brave men, Basil tracks him to Horse Rescue Ranch. But the ranch owner is the traitor’s sister, and she’s not talking. Caught off guard by her beauty—not to mention the bizarre arrival of a leather-clad Valkyrie—Basil has a hard time keeping his mind on his mission.

Animal rights activist Pippa Wilson must find her brother before the bank forecloses on their rescue ranch. When a gorgeous Marine arrives looking for him too, she tries to resist the attraction—but will her heart listen?

Shadow of the Hawk: Thriller Romance

shadowofthehawk_700x1059Defying death would make her stronger.

Kristina defied a lot and overlooked imperative clues in her search for a book of magic, but one clue she didn’t miss was the come-on from Grant.

How important are the clues in life, a wink from a handsome guy, a head nod from a superior, an unexpected smile? What about signs which are not obvious? Sometimes we need help to move forward and look for signs or clues.

To discover a missing object, heal a wounded spirit, rediscover the joy of life? Or cope with a loss.

To find love?

In Shadow of the Hawk , coming 2013 with Cobblestone Press Inc., I used the Iris Knot as a clue leading to Merlin’s book of magic. The book must be found in order to save the heroine’s brother.

Jimmy Dunn claims we do not know the exactly the origin of the Isis knot, which seems to illustrate a knotted piece of cloth, though initially its hieroglyphic sign was perhaps a variant of the ankh. Even in written sources the meaning and symbolism of this object, known as the tyet (tiet, thet) by the ancient Egyptians, seems to be similar to those of the ankh, and the sign is often translated as “life” or “welfare.”

Kristina and Grant discover the Iris Knot in many forms but one prominent clue leads the tight duo

to the Angel of the North located in Gateshead, UK.

What are your thoughts, do you think the Iris Knot looks similar to the Angel of the North?

Angel of north

If you write, do you use clues? How difficult are they to carry throughout the story?

As a reader do you enjoy foreshadowing, titillations?

Do you enjoy travel? Would you travel to another country simply from clues presented in an obscure manner? Trust would be needed, eh?

Kristina and Grant are delightful as a couple. His humor lightens her usual reserved nature. Being different is difficult enough in this world but pulling forth skills she never thought she’d have to use was frightening. Knowing Grant stood next to her, urging and supporting, allowed Kristina to come out of her shell and spark. They are wonderful together and to see their journey from friends seeking a common goal to become lovers is amazing and heartwarming because:

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. Corinthians 13:4-8

ESP…Dreaming of You

Precognition is a topic which keenly interest me because my son has been blessed (cursed?) with the ability to see events before they happen. Visions or random snapshots are more or less inevitable destiny…and sometimes life altering event.

Can they be manipulated?

Could he force his mind to ignore the dream, stop it from running through his head?

More importantly should he act on the revelation? How would he get people to listen to this parapsychological vision? What if his predictions were not accurate? Should moral acuity prevail?

I wanted to know more. To find out the bases of precognition and use the information obtained about prophetic futures and human behavior in a story I have in progress, Ghosts and Dead People (working title).

Precognition according to dictionary.com is:
1. Knowledge of a future event or situation, esp. through extrasensory means.

2. Scots-Law The examination of witnesses and other parties before a trial in order to supply a legal ground for prosecution. The evidence established in such an examination.

Theorists argue there may be layers or various dimensions in the universe, which would allow for precognition to exist. There are skeptics who see problems because if a future already exist, how can it be proven?

Logic, causality is a fact. Cause equals effect. Example: If you are stabbed with a knife (effect) the weapon must exist and be plunged (cause). However, if a mapped out future exists, then the order is abolished by altering the events due to precognition.

Another factor to take into consideration is free will. We make choices. I tell my children all the time, the choices your make lead to actions and those actions will determine the outcome of your future. YOUR future is determined by you.

Otherwise, we are mindless players (with or without strings) existing on Earth in this universe, which is a phantasm instead of reality.

Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot ISBN: 978-0060922580 (Harper, 1992) el Talbot (1953-1992), was the author of a number of books highlighting parallels between ancient mysticism and quantum mechanics, and espousing a theoretical model of reality that suggests the physical universe is akin to a giant hologram. In The Holographic Universe, Talbot made many references to the work of David Bohm (physicist) and Karl Pribram, and it is quite apparent that the combined work of Bohm and Karl Pribram is largely the cornerstone upon which Talbot built his ideas. http://www.crystalinks.com/holographicuniverse.html.

Does objective reality exist? Or is the universe a phantasm?

If intuition is a filtering of information using ESP, or by touch, smell, taste, sound or sight, our survival depends on intuition…on any universe.

Precognition is the filtering of future events, the act of knowing prior to the event that it will occur. Precognition is random and according to studies, 80 – 85 percent of precognitive experiences concern family or friends.

Think of it, the last time you experienced an emotional upset or and disaster…was the experience tied to precognition. Several passengers from the Titanic had a dream about the ship sinking. One businessman in particular didn’t get on the ship, not because of the third time he’d had the dream but because he missed the ship. The same with 911. Family or friends of passengers dreamed of the death of their friend/loved ones and did or didn’t act on the precognition.

Humans, in general, are comfortable discussing intuition. According to the Bible “A person with the gift of prophecy may receive messages in various ways, including visions (Ezekiel 1), dreams (Daniel 7), words of knowledge or wisdom, discernment and the operation of another spiritual gift such as teaching (Paul’s epistles, Hebrews, James). Very often the prophet’s message will come in a way that requires the prophet to find the words to describe the message. It may even be in the form of a strong emotional impression. http://www.participatorystudyseries.com/pss_full_pamphlet.php?sku=PSS016”

Most people are not comfortable discussing precognition; however, precognition may be the next evolution level.

I’ll share an excerpt from Believe

She raised her right palm up and lifted both shoulders. “I don’t know. The name or office begins with a ‘D’. Could be Day, DA, or Assistant DA or Commissioner Dauh. I know it’ll be a five-year-old boy who’s associated with a prominent figure. In the vision, I glimpsed an extremely large Georgian-style house. It sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Circular drive. Old house, early eighteen hundreds. Tall gnarled trees line the front and along the sides. The details are still a little murky.”

“That’s all the information you can remember from this dream?” The slightest movement, a turn of her head or body down or away, would indicate that she lied. She didn’t, but sat straight as a rod and locked her stare onto his, brown to blue.

“Vision. Look, I know you don’t have any reason to trust me. I’m sure you’ve heard all the stories about fortune-tellers, gypsies, and how they’re skilled at confidence games. I do not provide parlor tricks.” With twitching fingers, she rubbed the coin and kicked her foot with a steady pendulum swing and then as fast as the second hand on a clock.
