“The Meadow” – a great love story

“The only things that need the protection of men are the things of men, not the things of the spirit” — Native American Nation

This is all about promoting “The Meadow”, a novel about love and past lives

“The Meadow” — a novel of 600 pages.

This is all about “The Meadow” and I will be describing how it came to be written. To the right is a painting which was commissioned to celebrate the completion of the novel.

Now it awaits for that right opportunity where it can bring its message to the world. The story is as unique, as the characters are special.

The painting isn’t meant to give the impression that it is the book cover. However, it IS meant to convey the feeling and energy that was behind the two authors as they wrote this tale of love and devastation that covered many thousands of years.

“The Meadow” seeks recognition


“The Meadow” is ready to be shared with the world. However, before that can happen, there are certain factors which need addressing. The main issue here is to get the story out there and attract people by showing snippets and characters in the book.
Here goes my lists of articles for you to follow regarding a great love story that spans over thousands of years. I hope you can get something from all of them.
All great novels, such as The Da Vinci Code, have to have a starting point. Some already have established authors to help them on their way. And then there are new, undiscovered creative writers who have to prove themselves by other means.This is our attempt to bring awareness into the hearts and minds of readers everywhere that there is another great story just waiting to be found.



The physical meadow versus the celestial watering hole called “The Meadow”

The physical meadow versus the celestial watering hole called “The Meadow”

To the right is a beautiful photo of a real meadow somewhere.
Once you begin to read “The Meadow” your mind will possibly take you to another world and let you experience a meadow from another dimension — a celestial watering hole where souls go to rest between physical lives.
Observe the painting painting to the left and see what conjures in the minds of the two authors who wrote “The Meadow”.


The Feathers

One from an eagle and the other from an owl

This is how the story begins, with a legend, where two tail feathers are cast from an eagle and an owl in an aerial display.
To the right is a close up depicting them in the painting of “The Meadow” and left the real feathers, framed to celebrate the completion of “The Meadow”.
These feathers had to be obtained by special permission and were shipped from a national park in Canada.




How does this animal compare to the all-time greats? Read “The Meadow” and find out

Alongside the domestic cat and dog, I think I’m on safe ground when I claim that the horse is as well loved as these other pets. The world would be a poorer place were it not for the horse and its long association with its two legged friend. If man was more at home in water, I believe that the dolphin would also have joined the same ‘club’ as these other wonderful animals.Long before recorded history, the horse has assisted in the tilling of the land and could be relied upon in battle. Once that bond has been sealed between man and beast, it is a friendship made for a lifetime.

Arguably, the most famous horse in all history is Bucephalus, the companion of Alexander the Great that lived and died in service to his master. Another great warrior horse was Comanche, aptly named because of his involvement against the Indian nation, particularly during the battle of the Little Bighorn when Captain Keogh rode him under the command of General Custer.

In the UK, people remember the antics of Black Bess with affection; the subservient and loyal animal to the outlaw Dick Turpin who defiantly met his end at the gallows in York in 1739. And who can forget the fictional horse with a similar name – Black Beauty. This horse was made famous, not only by a book of the same name, written by Anna Sewell, but by the movie industry that gave it a great boost.

This author remembers with great affection how Trigger came to our big screens as the cowboy, Roy Rogers, rode him into town and dealt with all the ‘baddies’ as he sang his way into the heroin’s arms with his horse always by his side. We also have television to thank for giving us Mr Ed the talking horse – an unknown with the real name of Bamboo Harvester. They called the animal ‘Mr Ed’ and with the aid of a few editing tricks, he was able to give the impression that he could speak.

How many famous race horses can you name? Okay, there are hundreds of them so let me just name one – Red Rum, the greatest steeplechaser of all time. And finally I would like to add the most mythical of all horses, the unicorn, that has graced so many fantasy and mystical novels and movies.
Now I would like to add one more horse to this illustrious list. He is a magnificent black stallion and belongs to the realms of fiction. You will find him between the pages of a novel, titled “The Meadow”. He was born before recorded history way back in antiquity. However, just like his human companions, Teuch and Anacaona, he is given the opportunity to live again, again and again, illustrating how life and spirit is eternal.

His name is Spethla and as he evolves, his name changes along with his role as an animal. Sometimes he reincarnates as another horse with a different colour, or as a dog. However, the name of Spethla is the one that stands out and will always capture the imagination of the reader.

Watch out for “The Meadow.”



The little people

How many can claim that they really do exist?

I know of at least a dozen people who can claim to have first hand knowledge that there reCROPPEDally are fairies at the bottom of the garden.I’m in no position to argue against this fact as I do not possess knowledge to counter the claim. Therefore, I take at face value what I’m told and as a consequence, you will read all about them as they befriend our little Natalie in “The Meadow”.

Having just a smattering of basic physics, I have a foundation on which to build and come to my own conclusions. Once there is the realization that everything manifests through the vibration of energy, a multi-dimensional existence becomes more apparent and less than the fairytale which our conditioning would suggest.

This story illustrates how life can be truly eternal when love carries two souls through many lives

Past lives or reincarnation can either be a buzz word or one that upsets those of a religious belief that contradicts their philosophy. From a logical point of view, it is the opinion of both authors that all lessons can not be learnt in just one earthly life time. “The Meadow” and its storyline is based around this concept. I hope to see this feed search improve each time a new group is found until I see “The Meadow” being illustrated each time.

Watch out for my personal avatar

The Phoenix rising from the ashes combined with an outline of a female’s head

In 1986 I was under a great deal of stress. My mother was dying of cancer and I was undergoing horrendous business relationships with my equal partner.My mother died, coinciding with my decision to go it alone and break the partnership and form a new business.

I commemorated this by designing this emblem/logo in memory of my late mother and in recognition of a new start in business.

It has remained with me ever since and has accompanied many articles that I have written, as well as being the company logo that accompanied all business administration.



This is the avatar of my co-author, Elfreda Pretorius

A little girl picking up a baby sparrow

“Sparrow in my hand” is the personal Avatar of my writing partner, Elfreda.Drawn by her son, it commemorates a turning point in her life when that same son, at the age of seven, overcame life threatening injuries sustained in an accident.

This is his vision of his mother as a little girl, wondering how to save a baby sparrow that fell from its nest – the same way she wondered how to help him survive all those years ago.

“Sparrow in my hand” is the book of his healing they intend to write in the near future.
