Born on November 5th 1850 in Johnstown, Wisconsin, Ella Wheeler was the youngest of four children. She began to write as a child and by the time she graduated was already well known as a poet throughout Wisconsin. Regarded more as a popular poet than a literary poet her most famous work 'Solitude' reflects on a train journey she made where giving comfort to a distressed fellow traveller she wrote how the others grief imposed itself for a time on her 'Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone'. It was published in 1883 and was immensely popular. The following year, 1884, she married Robert Wilcox. They lived for a time in New York before moving to Connecticut. Their only child, a son, died shortly after birth. Here we publish one of her many poetry books, the classic Maurine, that so endeared her to her audience. Ella died of breast cancer on October 30th, 1919.
I feel that this is a unique book of poetry, because it takes the reader on a journey of the Heroic Poet Errant. Like a wandering knight, the Poet falls into the pits of despair, crawls out, and gains a truer, more affirmed sense of Self. Spin The Wheel was written at a time when I believed that life was "suffering." As stated in the "Four Noble Truths" of the Buddhist Dharma, the truth of "Dukha" is that life is anxious, unsatisfactory and suffering. I sought refuge in the Three Jewels to bring my spirit mental clarity and centeredness in a world full of drama. The process of writing this poetic story began my path to salvation. And now I am ready to share it with you.Writing this story allowed for the exploration of enlightened thinking and the examination of our human drama. This fostered my appreciation that we are all divine and that we are all connected, spiritually and physically. We are all one upon Earth - together.I hope this book finds you when you can use it the most. Let the journey begin.
"Two pencils, an india-rubber, a penknife, camp stool, easel, paint-box, a tube of Chinese white, a piece of sponge, paint rag, and water tin," said Aldred Laurence, checking each item off on her fingers. "Let me see! Can I possibly want anything else? It's so extremely aggravating to get to a place and find you've left at home what you most particularly need. My block, of course! How could I be so stupid as to forget it? It's no good taking pencils and paints if I've nothing to draw upon!"
Zach Chandler, a private detective in Dallas, Texas, is a throw-back to the 1950s. He doesn't use Google or a 9mm handgun. Instead he thinks and listens. His world turns upside down when the wealthy and eccentric Mildred MacDougal asks him to investigate a crime he does not understand. Mrs. MacDougal remembers honest money, silver dollars, and low prices from the 1940s and 1950s. Her father taught that silver was a Doctor, a natural healer of economic and physical diseases, and that silver dollars were often called cartwheels. She wants Zach to investigate the murder of Doctor Silver Cartwheel. After Zach explains to Mrs. MacDougal why silver is no longer used as money, she asks him to predict the price of silver in five years. Zach enlists the aid of the mysterious Mr. Mystic and seeks insight from various silver analysts. "Who Killed Doctor Silver Cartwheel" is a detective story that explores the history of silver and what caused its demonetization. It also proposes several methods to estimate future prices for silver.
