A professional horseman for over 40 years, Skook continues to work with horses. He is in an ongoing educational program, learning life's lessons from one of the world's greatest instructors, the horse. Skook has finished an historical novel that traces a mitochondrial line of DNA from 50,000 years ago to the present. The book Fifty-Thousand Years is awaiting me to finish a final proofread and it should be sent to the formatter in a matter of days. I am still working, so it is not easy to devote the time I need to finish the project. The cover is a beautiful wok of art. I would put it up here if I could figure out how to make it work.

    Skook, you just keep getting better and better.

    I suspect that as your substantial intellect listens more and more to your inner intuitive energy, your Soul, your words flow our way with greater ease, and with ever rising profundity – fortunately for us, your readers.

    ….. when we part with this mortal coil, we take only what is in our heart.

    Absolutely – our feelings and the bonds we form prevail beyond our corporeal journeys, and our Souls leave the rest behind. This is unquestionably one of the most profound contributions delivered here on Curt’s FA in all the years I’ve been checking in.

    Seems to me you are in a good place, Skook. Much to be grateful for.

    Looking forward to more, as always.

    Alice is powerful Soul whose gift to humanity is as consequential as ever. Her guidance toward gratitude is utterly complex, and insightful and her confidence is a thing of beauty. Thank you for this.

    @james Raider: Thanks JR, this has been a moving experience for me, and I can’t let it go. The response at skooksjournal.com has been overwhelming.

    I am overwhelmed and speechless, from reading and listening, thanks again.

    You can not believe how close this hits to home with me! Skook, you never fail to amaze me but this is far and beyond your absolute best. My aunt (her brother was killed in a concentration camp) told us stories like this but to have it brought to life as you just did is awe inspiring.
    Not only a heart wrenching tale, but you have once again in my opinion performed an important public service. Far too many want to erase the Holocaust from memory! Kudos my friend for fighting the good fight.

    now, I have to find a tissue.
