to be set free: not your typical ghost story

a memoir

The Church of Happy Thoughts

the one truly unorganized church

So.  I wrote a book.  

To all my email friends in France, and Germany and Poland, Turkey, Ukraine, Austria, and Viet Nam,  Italy and Greece, USA, Canada, and all of you everywhere, doesn't tell me who you are, but THAT you are and lets me know who's checking in from where you are. Someday I might ask you to be followers, but I'm just happy to know you are there, in the world with me.  To all of you, thank you for checking in from time to time.  

So.  This is a short memoir, about this one thing:

I've learned that the good news for the Ghost in the room is the good news for us all.

Freedom is possible.   Even when I found myself in the darkest places, ones in which I knew I did not belong, freedom might be as simple as looking for it.    

It begins with a simple message from my grandmother, Maia, just moments after she died when I was 3.  A message that has saved my life over and over again. Then it continues to this moment, the clanging and banging that I eventually learned was coming from somewhere not so very far away, and they were hoping my belief in no-end-to-chances, and that all are greatly loved, might be true.

I hope this message saves your life one day, it's simple and true, and these experiences with the otherwhere may shed some Light on clanging and banging of your own.  So, this is one of my many stories.   I can only hope that one day I will have the chance to read one of yours.

We are truly all in this together.

This is a kindle ebook.  If you do not have a kindle, when you go to the link above, it should take you to the To be set Free page, where there is the option to read the first few pages of the book.  Below the cover image, there is a message that says:  "Read on any device.  Get the free app." Click and it will lead you to a link to get kindle on your phone, computer, or tablet, Mac or PC, for free.  Pretty slick. 

to life, death and everything in between,
and to everybody's ghost story,
