About the Book

The wildest, craziest ideas emerging from the depths of our swirling imaginations are closer to the truth than anything in our so called “reality’ could ever be. The first instinctive and instantaneous feeling arising from the center core of our being is always the most accurate and astute account of a situation that we can get. Believing in these two concepts has made it possible to write down the words for the following short stories. These stories are a series of events that may or may not have really happened. Instead of trying to validate them, I would prefer to view them as a set of lessons of sorts. The theme that runs through each story is what is important. What worked for mankind, and clearly what did not. It matters not the particular characters or the actual circumstances. We have all experienced violence and negative thinking. How will these lessons effect the future? That is the only question capable of making a difference. Our past is undeniably linked to our future. If we decide not to fill anymore of history with separate and harmful acts, then perhaps it will be helpful to carry the memory of our recent past with us, allowing it to serve as a painful reminder. Hopefully, our grandchildren and great grandchildren will once again live as brothers and sisters. My sincere hope is that the future upon our Mother Earth can be enjoyed with balance, wholeness, and connection. With Hope, Promise, and Light! Jill Marie West

About the Author

Jill Marie West is mainly a horsewoman living between West Texas and Southeast Arizona. The desert serves as home for her and her animals, providing enormous amounts of beauty, as well as, a little stark reality. From this vantage point, a few short stories and quite a few poems have been brought to form. Perhaps the upcoming days will bring even more desert tales to life? One can never be sure!
