“The Meadow” – a great love story

“Civilization has been thrust upon me. It has not added one whit to my love for truth, honesty and generosity” — Chief Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Lakota (Sioux)


This article is put here to support the promotion of “The Meadow”, a novel about undying love which covers many lives of two souls as they move through the ages.

This particular blog is all about the vibration of life and how energy is the source of all things physical.

The Meadow seeks recognition


Publication of a great story is only the beginning.

Now it has to find its rightful place amongst the bookshelves with all the other fantastic works of fiction.

This can only happen when it is brought into people’s awareness.

“The Meadow” has taken two and a half years to write and the authors do not intend for it to take that long to gain momentum as it reaches public scrutiny.

We rely on the power of the Internet and the tools which are available to us.

There are many potential readers out there and using the right approach by using this facility will go a long way to helping us achieve our goals.
The magic of the feathers needs to wield their influence here to ensure great success.
You can read all about the feathers in the legend which opens “The Meadow”.


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

Which would you choose?

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 below and see what conjures in the minds of the two authors who wrote “The Meadow”


This painting was commissioned to celebrate the completion of “The Meadow”, a novel that I co-authored with my writing partner Elfreda. It is not meant to give the impression that this is the cover to the book.


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.
Right is a close up depicting them in the painting of “The Meadow” and below are the real feathers, framed to celebrate the completion of “The Meadow”.



Energy is the source of all life, vibrating into a harmony of sound and colour

Society has no grounds on which to feel smug about the way it controls the populace. On the contrary, it has a lot to answer for. Our education system, regardless of which country it is operated, is linear in its approach as to how much we are meant to learn. In short, there is a limit to the amount of knowledge that is meant to be shared and deliberately so.

If the plain, fundamental concept of physics was included in the science curriculum and taught to pupils from an early age, there would have been put in place a basic foothold to all knowledge that would allow us to understand the physical world. Unfortunately, it doesn’t pay dividends for the Establishment to release or share in anything that allows humanity to think and take responsibility for itself.

We perceive the world and everything around us as something that is solid and cannot be changed. If only we had been taught that energy in its purest form is the source of everything that surrounds us. The math is king in all things. Logic is the facilitator to the math and it is through this means that, with a little scientific education of the right sort, we would soon discover that all things physical manifest out of the frequency put out by a mathematical formula of pure energy. This is the vibration of life.

No matter where you look, nothing is solid. Behind the atom, there is constant movement, vibrating within certain parameters which help to maintain the status quo. As soon as the frequency vibrates outside of these parameters, change occurs. This is how the chemical formula for all things becomes the blueprint to physical mass. There are no exceptions. Even our bodies, which are made up from atoms, cells and molecules are all part of the vibration experience.

The psychic make-up of our being also has its own vibrations. Even a thought has its vibration; a small electrical charge making it a tangible thing. It’s a wonderful world out there. So why don’t we all try to do something which will facilitate knowledge? I watched a live TV programme the other evening which constituted a three-person judging panel and a large audience. One of the judges, who were all famous, was obviously quite used to having his own way; a bit like the Establishment.

What this guy was powerless against, was the reaction from the audience. The more he tried to impose himself upon them, the more he was shouted down. This is a very small example of what People-Power is all about. When we realise the power we have as a collective unit, will be the time when we can change the world for ever. That will be the day when we can understand and appreciate how energy, via the math, can vibrate into a world of colour and sound.


Just a man and a boy

Don’t be fooled by the appearance

The man is Steve Ballantire. He is a professor in applied physics and mathematics and is head of his department at Newcastle University in England. He stands six feet four inches and is expert at horsemanship, fencing and martial arts.The boy is Hugo Norman. He is a twelve-year-old, mildly autistic savant and is brilliant at mathematics and theory physics. He lives in his own world most of the time, but when it’s necessary, he comes out of his shell, particularly when Steve or his beautiful mother are around.

Both of these characters feature heavily in “The Meadow” and you can find out about their special relationship when you are presented with the opportunity to read the book.

The picture right shows a flower bed which stems the length of part of the platform at Beamish Open Air Museum railway station.
The flowers are well kept, but one day a very angry person ripped them out as he observed Eva, the subject of his hatred, exchange information with Chong-ba the monk.
This is a scene taken from this location which features in “The Meadow”.



Above is the covered-in canopy just outside of the same railway station as Chong-ba waited for Eva to turn up. He knew that she would. Lives are at stake.

Mike’s interview on The Meadow

Explaining how The Meadow is to be marketed

A frank interview with Mike O’Hare, co-author of The Meadow outlining his plans for their story to reach a wide readership.

The Meadow is an Epic Love Story Involving Four Past Lives. I’ve just completed co-authoring a novel of more than 600 pages; a huge venture which took more than two and a half years to complete. My writing partner is Elfreda Pretorius and, would you believe, we never met until the book had been completed. How it all started is a long story and I shall be explaining all of this in detail as I progress. Watch out for The Meadow.

The Meadow novel

A story of undying love over thousands of years through many different lives.


A novel written with a message for the modern world. It’s time to start realizing that there is more to life than what our five physical senses relay to us. Release your conditioned mind and understand that life is eternal, whether it be in the mind, the soul or the body. Life goes on regardless, and we follow it every step of the way.

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.
