I have been away from creative writing for many years. I am trying to rediscover who I am through my writings. Come join in the journey!
The Power Behind the Power
The Church of England grew so powerful in history (as did the Catholic church) that they wielded too much influence in the government. This fact scared our colonist ancestors so badly that they felt it necessary to draft the first amendment of the constitution to expressly disallow any government endorsed religion. We refer to the first line of this amendment as the “separation of church and state.” The fear of religious interference in the political structure created the desire to make this amendment the first in what is referred to as the “Bill of Rights” (the first ten amendments).
My Training Odyssey
Once upon a time I thought I would be an equipment operator until I died. I loved running dozer and finding solutions to complex problems with the movement of dirt. I loved running drill and being the first to drill into the virgin ground that had never had a human touch before. Once upon a time I ran almost everything…and loved it!
The Melody of the Cursed
There weren’t always dragons in the Valley, but today was unlike other days, for today a wizard stood trial for murder. The wizard Suroundu looked out into that gathered mass of people and he had the sudden realization that the villagers were gathered to see the first trial of a magical being in over a century. A lump formed in his throat as he realized that they were there for HIS trial.
