The Meadow seeks recognition

This story was meant to be given to the world

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 physical meadow versus the celestial watering hole called "The Meadow"

Which would you choose?

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 - the magic behind "The Meadow"

A noSMALLvel waiting to take off

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 to the left are the real feathers, framed to celebrate the completion of "The Meadow".


Another excerpt from Chapter 1 - "The Pact"

Anacaona is the sensitive one and she feels danger early on in her life

. . . "On the open plains of ancient Mexica, Anacaona's sensitive nature afforded her tiny glimpses into the mysteries of creation. Her boundless joy, so characteristic of her soul composition, was noticeable in her uncomplicated childhood friendship with Teuch and as she grew older it stirred a much deeper knowing in the consciousness of the young girl. Although vague and undefined at first, her receptive spirit recognised faint traces of a calling or a mission within the warmth and camaraderie of their bond.


From the night the handsome young warrior took her as his bride, their forces began to flow as one and her romantic heart was overwhelmed the day he lay the tail feathers of the eagle and the owl in the palm of her hand. To him it was a perfect symbol of their love and although Anacaona was filled with infinite affection for Atonal's only son, her heart at once contracted and quivered with inexplicable trepidation.


Despite their intense devotion to each other, she was unable to ward off the constant feeling of impending doom and her only consolation was to creep deeper into his embrace. Cradled in the circle of his arm, she shut out the fear and shared with him intriguing experiences of strange colours and shapes that constantly flashed across the screen of her mind. And whilst he loved her dreamy quality and cherished the depth of the intimacy between them, he was equally mystified by the meaning of her dreams and visions.


When their lives ended prematurely and their spirits left the earth plane, they were carried into the next dimension and suspended above earthly time in the afterlife where the Cosmos holds multiple realities in a location described by some as the Middle Place. Here the seeds of cause and effect reach across the boundaries of life and death into this domain where good, bad, innocent and indifferent souls collectively exist with their agendas set according to their own evolutionary path.


But within the Middle Place there exists a special heavenly region known as the Meadow and it is from here that souls on a spiritual path await their time for re-emergence onto the earth plane for another chance to continue learning. It is to this celestial rendezvous that Teuch and Anacaona arrived joyfully for the first time as evolving souls and it is to this same place that they would return again and again, in an effort to find each othePhotobucketr and unite in body, mind and soul.


Unbeknownst to them, the tender and beautiful memories of their earthly encounter had been encrypted in the ethereal bodies of their souls and powerful laws were set in motion that would repeatedly draw them together; hinting at recognition of the assignment.

Then somewhere in the celestial heavens the energy increased, the wind changed direction and purposely rippled the grass in the Meadow. The stir was felt by all, and those for whom the time had come, felt a strong desire to once again take mortal form.


And so it was that hundreds of years later, two souls held safely within the Cosmos outside of time and space, were about to be released onto the open plains of North America. But in the first of their many challenges to reunite, the Cosmos cruelly, yet deliberately, released them ten years apart, setting the stage for a pattern in which their struggles to bond would become legion . . . ."


Could this be the entrance to another dimension?

In real life, this is the entrance to a farm which is based in Elwick Village

Elwick is the backdrop to the modern-day part of the story about "The Meadow". From his farm at Ocean View, our male hero Steve lives, trains and breeds his horses.
When he isn't at the farm, he is working in his official capacity as a Professor of applied physics and mathematics at Newcastle University.


Each day, when he returns from work to his home, he will encounter the entrance to his farm which could be very similar to the photograph above, and below is just another view of a typical farm at Elwick which could quite easily be Ocean View.
Read more about Steve as you engross yourself into the mystical and magical world of "The Meadow."


Dalton Piercy Village

It's just a stone's throw away from Elwick

When Mike was choosing locations for parts of the story about "The Meadow", Elwick was a big factor in his considerations.


It was only after the completion of the novel that he realized how significant his choice had been.


He chose various places around his home where he could go and find inspiration.


A lot of the story which is based around Elwick Village was created in the next village down the laPhotobucketne.


This is Dalton Village and Mike found a secluded place near a babbling brook. He would pack provisions for the day and in warm conditions he would cycle to the stream and set out his stall.


The connection between Dalton and Elwick is more than significant here because of the inspiration that Mike gained as he brought more of his idea to life about the lives in ancient and modern times during the creation of "The Meadow".


Elfreda, Mike's co-author, considered the material she had been presented by Mike as very thought -provoking and soon her creativity took hold and she immersed herself into the beautiful surroundings that are Elwick and even Dalton.

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.


She 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.

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.

"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.


This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.


The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.


The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.


This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.


There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
