Richmond Virginia: When the Lights Go Out


Sometimes we do things and afterward we have no idea why we did them.  Such was the case during a night I spent in Richmond Virginia. I had enjoyed a few days visiting Charleston South Carolina during which time I visited several of the plantations in the area, Fort Sumter, and enjoyed the dining and facilities of the battery area.

 I was disappointed in the weather, it was May I had expected warmer weather, it seems the area was experiencing a colder than normal spring. It was time to leave Charleston, but not yet time to go home, so I decided to drive up the coast to visit Fredericksburg Virginia, some place I had always wanted to visit, but never had the opportunity until now. So I bid farewell to the beautiful area around Charleston and headed  north.


Taking my time, it was well after dark when I arrived in Richmond , Virginia. Not wanting to drive into Fredericksburg after dark , I decided to overnight in Richmond. Trying to live on some what of a budget , I found a Motel 6 and stopped for the evening.  The parking lot was full of semi trucks, I decided if it was good enough for a trucker, it was good enough for me. As I unpacked my meager belongings, hunger suddenly engulfed me, as there was a restaurant across the street, that would be my next destination. With a full stomach, the only thing on my mind was getting a good night’s rest, as I wanted to fully enjoy the next
day while in Fredericksburg.

That was not to be, I found myself wide awake at 2:30 in the morning, my mind was racing. Realizing there was no need to try and sleep I got up and opened my atlas of the United States and began thumbing through the pages. I had no idea what I was looking for. Soon I was checking the map of Virginia, Indiana, and New Mexico. Soon I began drawing lines on the United Sates map, noticing that US highway 60 runs from Richmond Virginia to Clovis New Mexico and beyond. There seemed to be a correlation between Clovis and Roswell, the site of the 1947 UFO crash. While drawing my little circles and lines, I also noticed that if one would draw a line from Richmond Virginia, to southern Indiana, my home, and on to Roswell and back to Richmond Virgina, it would form a perfect triangle.

Several years later and I still have no clue as to the significance of all this. Since I lost a good nights sleep over it, I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me. Oh, by the way, I did still enjoy Fredericksburg.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Available in both paperback and ebook format.
